The 1997 C5 Corvette

The 1997 C5 Corvette is precisely the Corvette

that Corvette lovers around the globe have been

waiting for!





The all new all-aluminum LS1 5.7L V8 is the best

engine designed since the legendary 7 liter ZL-1

and the non-production 6.1 liter Grand Sport.

The firing order has been changed to improve

overall performance. This new LS1 does have

its own unique exhaust sound when compared

to the classic chevy small block that just celebrated

it's 42nd birthday!


This engine can propel the Corvette through

the quarter mile in 13.2 seconds and reach a

terminal speed of 109 MPH!!

We are talking about serious 60's Muscle here

with this LS1 engine. Best of all, this car will

achieve over 25 MPG on the highway!!


Many owners have decided to personalize their

Corvettes by polishing the factory aluminum wheels.



What a dramatic change !

The most significant design change is without

a doubt, the rear mounted transmission.

Both an automatic and a manual transmission

are available with this new C5. Photos will be

posted as soon as they are available!


With all the new technology that is incorporated

into this latest and greatest Corvette, only with

the passing of time will we know if the C5

Corvette will attain the legendary status

that it's ancestors achieved.
