For many enthusiasts, the C5 (Corvette, 5th generation) that ran from 1997 through 2004 represents the ultimate bang for the buck. With performance that approached that of the Ferraris and Lamborghinis of the time, it was certainly a thrill ride at about 1/3 the price. We're talking 0-60 in under 5 seconds along with a quarter mile of 13.2 seconds and a top speed approaching 175 mph. The C5 was also a great daily driver, thanks to a much improved interior over the C4 with more room, easier ingress/egress, more comfortable seats and higher quality materials. Here we have gorgeous 2002 Corvette roadster finished in brilliant Millennium Yellow, one of 4,040 to be painted in this eye-catching color. This car has traveled just 21,232 miles and has been pampered for all of them. As such the body looks fantastic and the top is in expectedly fine shape as well. There has been no paint work on this sharp sports car and a set of black, double-spoke wheels add to the head-turning factor. Inside, the black leather upholstery likewise looks great, while a couple of yellow accents and a set of embroidered Corvette mats brighten things up. Of course the car is loaded and the Bose audio system features a cassette deck, allowing this Corvette's next owner the added thrill of being able to play those old Bon Jovi and Bananarama tapes. Under the long hood is the highly-regarded LS1 that sends its 350 full-bodied horses to the rear tires through a 6-speed manual. To say its a blast to run this car up the gears while charging up an on-ramp is putting it lightly. Of course the athletic handling and strong brakes add to the confidence and enjoyment this drop-top C5 provides on a twisty road. A Corsa exhaust provides the perfect soundtrack to accompany those top-down drives. Even in today's crazy classic car market, a C5 still presents a ton of fun for the money. A beautiful, low-mileage and very well kept example is nice to find. Add in a convertible top and a six-speed stick and it only gets better. As such, we don't expect this Corvette to be here too long. For more information or to schedule time to see this captivating C5 just give us a call at 603-627-5595.
