One of America’s oldest sports car mainstays, the Chevrolet Corvette, is headed for sale in South Korea according to the company.

“The Corvette Coupe will raise the bar for the brand and products, and broaden our base of Chevrolet customers in Korea,” GM Korea chief executive Sergio Rocha said.

Known for offering value performance, the Corvette will be marketed to South Korean buyers starting May 4. Unfortunately for anyone interested in buying one, the car will be offered in coupe form only, and for roughly $76,300, which is a $26,700 premium, mostly from taxes.

As the ninth model offered in the country, the Corvette will join its brawny brother: the Camaro, and the more efficiency minded cars already sold there.
