car description

Messing with the Corvette faithful is always a dicey proposition. Youre talking about Route 66, hot dogs, apple pie and Americas Sports Car. Respectfully, the new Corvette (or C5) had all the legendary Vette basics: two seats, rear-wheel drive, a big honking pushrod V8 up front and a low-to-the-ground, swoopy fibreglass body. Constructed principally out of aluminum, the C5s standard 5.7-litre V8 originally pumped out 345 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. But changes such as a 211-millimetre increase in the wheelbase and locating the gear box at the rear axle instead of behind the engine for improved weight distribution and a more spacious interior meant the C5 was a very different car than its predecessor. There is also a real boot, something that has been absent from Corvettes for a long time. The convertible looks a bit more graceful, particularly when the top is down. If stares of envy are part of your sports car enjoyment, its hard to imagine a better choice than the ragtop Vette. This high specification Eurpean market example comes in Quicksilver Metallic and black leather interior. Long list of extras include Head Up Display, BOSE sound system with 12 CD multichanger,
