C5 Corvette Information

The Chevrolet Corvette C5 was the fifth generation of the popular sports car from General Motors. This production range, released from 1997 to 2004, included the powerful Z06 and the competitive C5-R – the latter being a winner of the 24 Hours of Daytona and 24 Hours of Le Mans GTS/GT1. GM made a big leap forward with the inclusion of the third-generation “LS” engines for this Corvette, it also marked the end of the pop-up headlights, making the C5 the final generation to include them.
