Third Vette... and counting...

Vehicle2000 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Convertible
ReviewI've owned three Corvettes, this 2000
Triple-Black Roadster being my latest,
and my first C5. My previous Corvette
was an LT4-powered 1996 Collector
First, moving from a C4 to a C5: The
C5 is a different machine, with vastly
different handling characteristics. I
was warned by a good friend to take two
or three weeks before trying
anything "silly". I'm glad I listened
As far as horsepower is concerned, I
know my LT4 '96 was rated at 330 and
the 2000 is rated at 345 but I know in
my heart and soul that my '96 (both 6-
speeds) could take the C5 in a straight
shootout.. not by much maybe, but
there's my secret belief.
Best FeaturesHORSEPOWER; head-turning looks (even with thousands on the road), vastly improved convertible top design compared to C4
Worst Featuresnew materials for the interior; better attention to ergonomics inside the cabin; more horsepower. :-)
