Chevrolet Corvette Indy 500 Pace Car

The Chevrolet Corvette C5, a major upgrade from its predecessor the C4, included a hydroformed box frame for improved structural platform, particularly for a convertible style. An all-new LS1 engine was placed at the rear with a torque tube connecting it to the 4L60-E automatic transmission; this engine/transmission pairing enabled 50-50 weight distribution for a better driving experience. The LS1 engine produced 345 hp (257 kW) in 1997 and was increased to 350 hp (261 kW) in 2001. The manual transmission was replaced with a Borg-Warner T-56 6-speed, capable of reaching 175 mph (282 km/h). Compared to the C4, the new design drastically reduced squeaks and rattles. The 1997 Corvette was initially offered as a fastback coupe, with a convertible style released in 1998. That year, the convertible paced the Indianapolis 500, and a replica version was sold. Additionally, for being "named Motor Trend Car of The Year", the 1998 Corvette earned its rightful place in history. 2002 and 2004 Corvettes paced the Indianapolis 500, but no replica versions were sold. In 1999, the Corvette received a "hardtop" or "fixed-roof coupé". This body style featured a fixed roof with the same roofline and trunk space as the convertible, as well as a distinct notchback-style rear window.
