Chevrolet Corvette Z06

The Chevrolet Corvette C5 was a major technological advance from its predecessor, the C4, due to a hydroformed box frame design that provided improved structural integrity, especially for its convertible body style. Along with the new frame, the all-new LS1 engine was relocated to the rear canister and connected to a torque tube, which meant a 50-50 weight distribution for better handling. The LS1 produced 345 horsepower (257 kW) in its initial year, and was upped to 350 hp (261 kW) in 2001. It was paired with either a 4L60-E automatic transmission or the manually driven Borg-Warner T-56 6-speed, capable of a 175 mph (282 km/h) top speed. In comparison to the C4, the new platform significantly improved the Corvette's ability to reduce squeaks and rattles. When the C5 first launched in 1997, it was only available as a fastback coupe. The convertible model followed in 1998 and was the first to equip a trunk since 1962. It also served as the pace car for that year's Indianapolis 500. A 1999 Motor Trend Car of the Year and replica pace car edition were released, as well. C5 Corvettes also paced the 2002 and 2004 Indianapolis 500 races. The 1999 year saw the addition of a third body style, the hardtop, which had a fixed top and a unique rear window.
