For the C4, Chevy wanted a complete do-over for its now-established and reputed halo car. Zora Arkus-Duntov's classic design was to be replaced by something revolutionary and modern, something only Dave McLellan could pull off. The C4 came in various specs and editions throughout its lifetime before the final collector edition, as featured here, was released. This example is reported to be one of just 5,412 units that were ever made, and we are proud to be the ones to announce that is currently up for sale.
The exterior of this 1996 Chevrolet Corvette Collector Edition is recognized by its sleek and aerodynamic design, a major departure from the boxy shape of its predecessor, the C3 Corvette. The C4's exterior design was inspired by the aerodynamic research conducted by General Motors in the 1980s, resulting in a shape that reduced drag and improved performance and fuel efficiency. Still, the front of the C4 Corvette features a low-slung nose with pop-up headlights that were a signature design element of the car. The hood is long and tapers down towards the nose, giving the car a sporty and aggressive stance. The Collector Edition came with the Sebring Silver paint, 17" 5 spoke alloy wheels hiding black brake calipers with silver Corvette lettering. The car also sports Collector Edition body emblems, and the current owner reports that new tires have been fitted. The interior of the C4 Corvette was a considerable improvement compared to the C3 Corvette, with a more modern and driver-focused design. The cockpit layout gave the driver a feeling of control and confidence at high speeds. For the first time, the dashboard carried a digital instrument cluster, which was a cutting-edge feature at the time of the car's introduction. The instrument cluster features a digital speedometer, tachometer, and other gauges that provide the driver with essential information about the car's performance. This bespoke model had "Collector Edition" embedded in the headrests.
Powering this 1996 Chevrolet Corvette Collector Edition is a powerful 5.7L naturally aspirated LT1 V8 engine that gave the C4 300hp, with a resultant top speed of nearly 165mph.
