2000 Chevrolet Corvette

Gateway Classic Cars of Denver is proud to welcome this Black 6 Speed Manual C5 Corvette!

Back ground on the C5. The C5 (1997- 2004) was the most completely redesigned Corvette since the Corvette's inception in 1953. Production of the C5 Corvette actually began in 1996 but quality/manufacturing issues saw its release to the public in mass delayed until 1997, and continuing through the 2004 model year. The C5 was a completely new design that featured many new concepts and manufacturing breakthroughs that would be carried forward to the C6 & C7. It had a top speed of 176 mph (283 km/h) and was judged by the automotive press as a breakthrough with vastly improved dynamics in nearly every area over the previous C4 design. The list of all new innovations include:

• Industry leading 0.29 drag coefficient

• Near 50/50 weight distribution (actually 51%F/49%R) due to the all new powertrain layout

• The first Corvette to actually use an upper rear suspension arm, instead of the drive shafts performing double duty as the upper locator arm

• An all new chassis design that was more akin to a stressed monocoque than the former ladder designs which featured an all new stressed center tunnel design for increased torsional rigidity

• All new hyrdoformed side rails increased torsional rigidity more than 4 times that of the C4 and previous Corvette generations

• All new suspension geometries, in which the actual chassis widths and lengths were changed to affect the track and wheelbase dimensions. This was in contrast to simply changing the location of a mounting point that may not truly affect chassis geometry

• All new production of a rear mounted transmission, including a "torque"(drive)shaft from the front of the engine to the rear transmission

• Reduction of over 1,000 parts from the previous C4

• All new, never before seen active handling (it was the first ever stability control for a Corvette, and not just traction control for the '98/'99 - 2004)

• Lower weight (3,219 lbs) compared to C4 (Note: this weight for the '97-'99 model years for the base coupe was still lighter than the C6 that replaced it)

• Greatly improved quality

• Improved fuel economy

• "Magna-Steer" electronic power steering assistance

• First ever staggered tire size (for production Corvettes), with smaller sizes in the front than the rear. This was done to improve CD.

• First ever "twin fuel tanks", one behind each seat, aided the packaging of the C5; it, along with virtually all of the C5's innovations have been incorporated in the C6 & C7 models as well.

• First ever dual durometer suspension bushings to improve ride quality without sacrificing cornering grip and vehicle handling dynamics

• Large trunk was purposefully designed to accommodate two full golf bags

• First ever bonding to frame for body panels manufacturing in Corvette production history

• Super stiff chassis (24-25 Hz) made primarily of hydroformed steel. Starting with the C5 Z06, and then carried through the C6 and C7 models the chassis tunnel cover thickness was increased to aid rigidity from the relatively thin Base C5. The C6 tunnel plate actually mounts perfectly to the C5 model for an easy upgrade. Note: The C7 has adjusted some of its welding patterns and thickness points to.

• ALL new LS1 aluminum engine (Gen III small block); it featured individual ignition coils for each cylinder (instead of a distributor and a single coil), aluminum block and pistons, a very deep skirt design for increased durability, and many other technical and manufacturing innovations. This third-generation small block V8's complete redesign also featured a new cylinder firing order to improve idle and rev smoothness. It was initially rated at 345 bhp and 350 lb?ft, The new engine, combined with the new body and its low 0.29 drag coefficient, was able to achieve up to 28 mpg on the highway (Source WikipediA)
