Who made this Chevy Corvette C5 and why?April 8, 2020
A rather strange instance of the Chevy Corvette C5 generation sports coupe is being auctioned. The car was very short. Price data not provided.
Chevrolet Corvette C5 was introduced in 1997. With 345 horsepower as standard and significant improvements in comfort and handling compared to its predecessor, this version of the model exceeded all fans’ expectations. Nevertheless, the C5 style – especially its massive back end – was not liked by everyone.
The back of this sports coupe is replaced by what looks like the sloping rear of the Plymouth Prowler Roadster.
The taillights of this C5 seem to have only one oval lens on each side. As for the rear bumper, now it is a set of four exhaust tips directed left and right, like a pistol ready for shooting. .
The same can be said about the shortened front of the Corvette, which also has its own series of modifications. This is a heavily upgraded front panel from Camaro in the late 1990s. The pop-up headlights are apparently replaced by fixed quadrangular lamps. The flat central “bar” is a bumper. And we can only imagine the aerodynamic turbulence arising from the fact that the air passes around all these sharp edges.
There is no information about this car, just like the price at which they offer to buy it. But in any case, it is worth noting that to make a regular version of the Chevrolet Corvette C5 such a one with a shortened wheelbase and a noticeably altered appearance is worth a lot of effort.
