2005 C6

The Sixth Generation Chevrolet Corvette: More Power, Passion and Precision

Detroit - Marking the sixth generation of its legacy, the 2005 Chevrolet Corvette delivers more power, passion and precision to reach a new standard of Performance car excellence.

The 2005 Corvette Coupe will be introduced at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January 2004, with production slated to begin in the third quarter. A convertible version will be unveiled in the first half of 2004, with its production beginning in fall 2004.

The C6 represents a comprehensive upgrade to the Corvette, said Dave Hill, chief engineer of the Corvette and vehicle line executive for GM Performance Cars. Our goal is to create a Corvette that does more things well than any Performance car.


David Hill



Weve thoroughly improved Performance and developed new features and capabilities in many areas, while at the same time systematically searching out and destroying every imperfection we could find.

The development of the C6 intends to not only replace the outgoing C5 Corvette (1997-2004), but also to create a 21st century Corvette that both thrills the legions of traditional loyalists and captures the imagination of a new generation of Performance enthusiasts. The formula from the C5 era remains: extremely high Performance capabilities in a car that offers great style, value and quality, with surprising comfort for daily driving. The C6 builds on that foundation and reaches beyond with dramatic increases in Performance and refinement, wrapped in a passionate new design.

The sixth generation Corvette blends technical sophistication with expressive style. Five inches shorter than the current car, the 2005 Corvette cuts a tighter, more taut profile with virtually no loss of usable space. More than just visual, the new dimensions make the car more agile and tossable, with upgrades in handling, acceleration and braking. At 0.28 coefficient of drag, the C6 is the most aerodynamically efficient Corvette ever and has improved anti-lift characteristics that enable improved high-speed stability and confidence.

The C6 is more competition-influenced given our championship experience with Corvette Racing than any previous Corvette, Hill said. Our goal was a Performance car at home in virtually any environment. That means more than just raw Performance. It calls for improved ride comfort, a precisely-built and technically-sophisticated interior, and a sleek new body that is fresh and contemporary, while still instantly recognized as the new Corvette.

With countless enhancements, ranging from major changes to minor adjustments, the sixth generation aims to perfect the Corvette formula of power, passion and precision delivered with great value.

No leaf spring suspension?

I sat in a Z06 at a local dealer. They wanted $87,000 CAD out the door for it. I barely fit in it & the interior was crap. My celi has a way nicer interior. It was just way too much money for a shitty corvette. I bet this one is real expensive. thumbsdown

I'd rather have a Carera! Same horsepower, handles like a dream & weighs way less. thumbsup

They are curved metal bars stacked up & strapped together. Then the axle straps to them. Its a crude suspension system that used to be used in cars from the 70's & earlier. The video posted earlier showed a new Corvette equiped with them. rofl
