2000 Chevrolet Corvette C5
Transmission : Automatic
Mileage : 282872 km
Colour : Silver

When one thinks about American Sports Cars the first one that comes to mind and the most Iconic would be the CORVETTE. Commonly known as the “Vette”. This Innovative sports car for its time when coming to the market in 1953 building cars with a ladder chassis’, fibreglass bodies and V8 engines embracing the world of cool fast motoring.
As said the Corvette C1 was first showed in January of 1953 in New York and captured the public hearts, and now thing the 8th Generation the Corvette has broken away from its front-engined roots and is following the trend of mid-engined cars to take on the likes of Ferrari and Audi to name a few.

So let’s look at the C5 being the 5th Generation of the Vette family. After declining Sales of the C4 in 1996 Chevrolet redesigned the complete vehicle and used a lot of these changes in the lineup of the C6 & C7. A couple of noticeable changes are the sleeker lines of body but not going away from the Fibre Class bodies, the other great change was their new LS1 motor that since then has been used in everything that has wheels and upgraded to “Modern V8 “.

Well, that brings me to our silver C5 Vette.
Fun Fact only 6% of this model were painted in Silver but it seems when you are looking for one it’s always this colour. Seems as I have started with the paint it is important to mention that this example has been very well looked after and its previous owner took the time and spent some money on a paint projection film across the whole front of the vehicle. Further, it’s hard to believe that the car has the mileage it has as nothing seems to be worn to its age.
The Sporty interior with a combination of tan leather and black plastics seems to have stood up to the African Sun. The sporty seats hold you firmly and let you know you have entered a real Sports Car. Removing the roof is easy and the boot has a location to hold it for in case it rains or you’re just getting too hot in the sun in this cool car. The Vette LS1 Engine is the Heart of this beauty, with a grunt for days that accelerates you into an awesome motoring future. The 4spd Automatic200 gearbox is smooth between changes, but the rear sense comes from the direct steering and amazing suspension that keeps you in touch with the road.
The tech in the car is also cool from how you can touch a button and go from Kilometres to Miles in a second, and the pop-up headlights illuminate the roads ahead as you drive in the sunset.
Corvettes have lots of awesome traits and this C5 certainly help pave the way forward to the current generation.

We feel that this car would be a great investment that will thrill your senses, so make the call and book a test drive today and add this Gem to your collection.
