Profile

The fourth generation C4 was available as a coupe with detachable targe roof, or as a full convertible.

The 5.7 litre V8 was strangled by emmissions law, initially pushing out a mere 250hp, rising to a more respectible 330hp LT4 by the end of the production run. Shifting was through a manual, automatic or unique 4+3 combination gearbox. Max is around 165mph and 0-60mph arrived in the mid 5's.

Given the reduced power, handling was the priority for the C4, where it was a match for its european contemporaries.

The interior featured luxuries such as leather trim, ABS, aircon and electric seats. Some models even came with a futuristic LED instrument pack.

Several special editions were produced, cumulating in the 380hp ZR-1. The legendary 255mph Callaway Sledgehammer was also based on the C4 Corvette.

Over 350000 C4s were produced before production ceased in 1996, to be superceded by the C5.
