A 2000 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible is always going to have extra appeal when it's done in red. But this one is irresistible when you really start to see the exceptional care that comes from a long-term owner car with low mileage. So while it's easy to love a loaded V8 drop-top, you can also tell this one is preserved at a level for true connoisseurs.
Red is a true iconic color for Corvette, and so a factory Torch Red car always has appeal. Plus, the way the panels still fit on this aerodynamically smooth body means the bold color also retains a sleek shine. This shows all the right signs of being the factory application, and the well-respected style is what you get on a car that has averaged less than 2,700 miles annually. There are subtle upgrades that look great, like the upgraded brakes seen through the high-polish alloys, and there's also extra polish on the Corsa exhaust tips. And the streak of black in the hood highlights the power dome, and at the same time, goes great with the well-fitting black roof. So this one makes for a distinct way to celebrate the new class of classic cars. After all, it's nearing the quarter-century mark, and so it will be eligible for vintage car registration soon in many areas. And such a sleek machine will look awesome with antique plates.
Low mileage means little seat time, and so the black leather interior looks exceptionally presented. More than just preserved, you'll love this one because it's loaded with the best features. This includes power seats, power windows, power locks, keyless entry/alarm, dual airbags, anti-lock brakes, and a premium AM/FM/CD stereo by Bose. Plus, dual-zone automatic A/C climate control means you and your passenger can individually choose the ideal temperature for top-down motoring. And you'll love the touches that really make sure this lives up to the Corvette's image of a true driver's car. It's in everything from the power telescoping option on the steering wheel to the head-up display.
Part of what makes an early C5 so desirable is what's under the hood. The 5.7-liter LS1 V8 was the car that was built from day one to provide a big leap in power while also being as easy to drive as any modern fuel-injected machine. Plus, this one is nicely upgraded with a Blackwing cold air intake and Corsa cat-back exhaust system. It makes a car like this drop-top a true grand touring machine. After all, the four-wheel disc brakes and fully independent suspension are perfect for the backroads. And there's also the four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive, power steering, and cruise control for when it's time for those weekend getaways down the interstate. The large trunk even means the golf clubs come with you on vacation!
Complete with owner's manual, this convertible is exceptionally clean, right down to the undercarriage. It's the kind of preserved Corvette that has been kept the way you would have had done from day one. So if you're a collector, you know you need to call today!
