1999 Chevrolet Corvette
The C5 Corvette marked a new era of Chevrolets flagship sportscar, with a brand new 5.7L LS1 pushing 345 horsepower through a Borg Warner T-56 6-speed transmission and an overall focus on weight reduction, the C5 Corvette became an instant favorite for performance enthusiasts. The new Vetter was designed on a hydroformed box frame and offered an improved structural platform previously impossible in a convertible. The C5 introduced a number of technological advancements in the Corvette lineup, including a digital heads-up display, Active Handling System, drive-by-wire throttle, and variable-effort steering, as well as extensive use of lightweight materials and carefully designed aerodynamics. All of these improvements over the last generation Corvette lead to an entirely different and starkly improved driving experience.
This 1999 Chevrolet Corvette shows only 30,000 original miles and is in excellent condition. It is finished in the ever-popular red over black color combination and is complimented by a black soft-top. The LS1 runs perfectly and proves why these engines are so universally adored. It is smooth at cruising speeds yet explosive and boisterous under acceleration. The leather interior is in phenomenal condition, and is a comfortable place to be no matter the driving conditions. For the Corvette enthusiast, this C5 is a truly remarkable example one of America’s more iconic sports cars.
