Profile

The C5, the fifth generation Corvette, made a big leap forward in terms of handling and styling, making it a match for it's European rivals.

Over 6 years in development, the C5 addressed its predecessors poor handing with a new stiffer chassis and driver adjustable independent rear suspension. A lightweight alloy engine was also new along with a manual 6 speed gearbox. The glass fibre body featured detachable roof panels in targa form and offered a more comfortable interior environment with state of the art head up display from 1999.

Best of all the new Corvette was an absolute bargain. 172 mph for just 35,000 in the UK should have made the C5 a best seller, but LHD only was not to everyone's tastes.
