For 1960, the Fuel Injected engine continued it's reign as the top horsepower option. Two versions were available, rated at 250 HP (RPO 579; $484.20) and 290 HP (RPO 579D; $484.20). 859 (just over 8%) of both versions were part of the 1960 Corvette production.

Two other high performance engines, both dual carburetor 4 bbl. units, were on the option list: A 245 HP (RPO 469; $150.65) and a 270 HP (RPO 469C; $182.95).
