the sixth generation of its legacy, the Chevrolet Corvette delivers power, passion and precision to a new standard of performance car excellence. It be introduced at the North American Auto Show in Detroit in 2004, with production to begin in the third quarter. A version will be unveiled in the half of 2004, with its beginning in fall 2004.

The generation Corvette blends sophistication with expressive Five inches shorter the current car, the 2005 cuts a tighter, more profile – with no loss of usable space. than just visual, the new make the car more agile and with upgrades in handling, and braking.

At 0.28 coefficient of the C6 is the most aerodynamically efficient ever and has improved anti-lift that enable improved stability and confidence.

Z51 Performance The Z51 Performance Package brings Coupe performance very to the same level as the widely Z06. The Z51 offers more dampers and springs, larger bars, and larger, cross-drilled rotors for optimum track capability while still a well-controlled and comfortable ride.

Extensive racetrack testing that a C6 equipped with the Z51 almost equals the lap time of a C5 Z06 marking a major advance in the performance of a Corvette Coupe by approximating the extreme performance of the vaunted Z06 at a remarkable value.


GM today announced the new 2005 will feature the most standard engine ever in history: the 400 horsepower, 6.0-liter, V-8. The new 6.0-liter LS2 is part of the generation of GM’s small-block The small-block debuted in 1955 265 cubic inches and 195 horsepower.

to the Gen III-based LS1, the LS2 incorporates significant changes that improve performance, reliability and

-All-new aluminum block incorporates provisions for external sensors and revised oil galleries; sensors improve serviceability

bore diameter increased to mm (4.00 inches), increasing to 6.0 liters

-Flat-top piston with lower ring reduces friction

-Piston wrist pins help the engine

-Revised exhaust are 33 percent lighter

-Compression to 10.9:1

-Engine redline raised to rpm

-Revised and more powerful mototronics incorporate all electronic control functions.

The Tremec T56 manual is standard and the Hydra-Matic four-speed automatic is optional.

engineers thoroughly revised the gear box and added proprietary not offered on other automakers’ transmissions. The six-speed transmission has revised gearing when with the Z51 performance option. the Z51, the Tremec is tailored numerically higher gears to acceleration.

Also, a lower gear gives the Z51 better efficiency and a higher top speed base models. To increase in sustained high-speed situations, the Z51 and the European manual-transmission models a transmission cooler.

The available transmission in the C6 is the new Hydra-Matic 4L65-E An upgraded version of the C5’s the L65 is strengthened and revised to accommodate the 400 lb.-ft. of torque.


C6 is the result of lessons learned C5-R’s successes on the track with fresh thinking what a 21st century car should be. As the next logical in the evolution of GM’s Performance Architecture, it takes its robust and backbone structure and enhances it completely new suspension components.

the foundation has been enhanced, suspension component that to it has been changed – of the suspension bits have carried over from C5. The arm and transverse leaf spring suspension design remains, but the arms, springs, dampers, stabilizer bars, and steering are completely redesigned. The Extended Tires (EMT) are also taking advantage of the latest technology for run-flat capabilities, and a critical role in the tuning of the for maximum handling and a comfortable

Three suspension choices drivers to choose the setup best suits their of driving. Each of the choices Standard, Magnetic Selective Control, and Z51 Performance Package) outstanding handling, but each offers drivers the ability to the car’s handling traits to preferences.

The Standard suspension is for a balance of ride comfort and handling. The optional F55 Magnetic Ride Control suspension to the Standard suspension magneto-rheological that are able to detect surfaces and adjust the damping to those surfaces almost for optimal ride and body

The optional Z51 Performance Package is a system for the true performance It offers more aggressive and springs, larger stabilizer Goodyear Supercar tires an asymmetrical tread pattern, and cross-drilled brake rotors for handling performance that is comfortable for daily driving. the suspension bits, the Z51 is a total that takes the regular C6 to levels of performance.

It features gear ratios from the previous Corvette Z06 for acceleration performance, and includes added for the transmission and power systems for aggressive, track-oriented The result is a car that very equals the Z06 in track performance representing a tremendous value.


The C6 brake system its improvements chiefly on heat and durability requisite of the car’s overall performance capability. For the and F55 Magnetic Ride configurations, the rotors remain the same as the C5, at 12.8 inches in front and inches in the rear. However, the themselves have been redesigned.

The front rotors 2 pounds more than the C5, durability. They also less heat against the pads, which improves and reduces fade. In all brake the front calipers utilize pistons and the rears use single

The Z51 Performance Package extends the braking capability with diameter rotors (13.4 in front and 13.0 inches in that are cross-drilled.

Interior materials are significantly for comfort and aesthetics. The instrument and doors are covered with foam-in-place trim that is to the touch with low gloss to glare.

To the eye, it looks a leather-wrapped, padded panel. To the it is warm and inviting. This material has double the life of automotive paneling materials, fading and sun damage, and minimizes fogging, which can occur as migrate out of the material.

Aluminum plates with a woven-type surface add richness and emphasize

The traditional, easy-to-read analog of C5 provided an excellent starting for C6’s designers to refine and White-on-black numerals inform the with clean, straightforward for speedometer, tachometer, oil pressure, temperature, voltage, and fuel To reduce visual clutter, telltales were moved within the dominant tachometer and gauges to the area between

A menu-selectable head-up display is onto the windshield in front of the with vehicle speed and information. The display is focused so it aligns with the driver’s of sight on the road ahead, the driver to focus on driving still being able to vehicle speed and other vehicle information.

There are two settings for the HUD: and Track; and each setting is to display information that is for each respective – and different – situation. In mode, the driver can select several configurations that the speedometer and the turn signal and then add to it other information as audio system data, transmission gear position, and indicator.

In Track mode, is a larger tachometer, a speedometer, condition gauges, and a real-time accelerometer that samples and the maximum g-force experienced a turn. The HUD uses LCD pixels to the alphanumeric characters and graphics, the HUD to change size and shape.

The panel is 15 percent larger, yet the same structural stiffness as while weighing just one more. The roof panel standard painted body or is available with optional clear or with a dual-roof With new indexing side-window and redesigned seals, Corvette is more free from noise, too.

And the many in tires, suspension, and body yield impressive reductions in noise, while improving quality perception and making trips that much pleasurable.
