FOR SALE: 2000 Chevrolet Corvette (C5)
If you're a fan of American muscle and lament the absence of Chevy's presence in South Africa, here's some welcome relief!
Year and make/Model: 2000 Chevrolet Corvette (C5)
Engine: LS1 V8
Transmission: 4-speed Automatic
Mileage: 282 872 km
Though never officially sold in this country, a handful of C5-generation Chevy Corvettes did make it to our shores, but it's rare to find one up for sale. With 50/50 weight distribution, rear-wheel drive and a punchy 257kW 5.7 LS1 V8 engine, this 'Vette is a hoot to drive.
This silver example was certainly enjoyed by its previous owner, as evidenced by the 282 872 km mileage, but it was well cared for, with a full paint protection film spanning the front-end of the vehicle. Consequently, it is in great nick!
The interior, too, has withstood the test of time (and the African sun) well. It is a finished in a combination of black plastic and tan leather. Removing and storing the roof (in the boot) is an easy-enough operation and transforms the 'Vette into something that looks even more exotic. Oh... and pop-up headlights will forever be cool, right!?
