Drive a Chevrolet Corvette C5 near me

The Corvette has always been one of Chevrolet’s signature models, but it was when they unveiled the fifth generation to the world with the Corvette C5 in 1997 that they took things to another level. For starters, one thing it improved on from the preceding C4 was a much sturdier structural platform.

This meant that the Corvette C5 was the first such convertible Corvette model. It also housed a new Borg-Warner T-56 6-speed manual transmission, however, it still carried the 4L60-E automatic transmission that had been a feature of previous generations of the Corvette.

Another new feature of the C5 is the 6 litre, LS1 V8 engine, packing an impressive 430 bhp, offering superb performance in terms of speed, capable of zooming from 0 - 60 mph in 5 seconds, and 0 - 100 mph in 11.7 seconds, with achievable top speeds of 170 mph.

Cool Facts About the Chevrolet Corvette C5

When Chevrolet celebrated their 50th anniversary of production operations in 2003, they produced a special edition of the Corvette C5 to mark the occasion. Painted in a special ‘Anniversary Red Metallic’ livery, and unique two tone upholstery on the interiors, it was available in both convertible and coupe models.

The Corvette C5 is also notably the most fuel efficient Corvette that Chevrolet ever produced, with the EPA of the United States rating it as 19/25 mpg - making it a greener drive than the Corvette C4 that came before it.
