Chevrolet’s Corvette has been one of America’s poster cars since its inception in 1953. Countless posters of Corvettes have adorned children’s bedrooms, and nearly every red-blooded American petrolhead has aspired to own and drive one of these icons, with die-hard fans for each generation. If the C5 generation floats your boat, we’ve got a nice 2002 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe from Florida with low miles. . Check out this enthusiast-owned car if it piques your interest!
Blacked would be one way to describe this 2002 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe, as it wears a stunning black paint job and rolls on equally black alloy rims. The only hints of color are the yellow brake calipers. A quartet of Borla tailpipes peek out under the rear valance and sing a glorious V8 song too. Need we mention that the C5 was the last generation to feature those amazing pop-up headlamps? Who doesn’t love pop-up headlamps? Furthermore, this car features a removable Targa roof, allowing you to enjoy open-topped motoring at will. A gray interior complements a black exterior well, as in the case of this ‘Vette. The interior features two bucket seats for the driver and passengers proudly wearing ‘Corvette’ lettering in their backrests. Tech toys include dual-zone climate control, Delco Electronics radio/CD player with Theftlock, and a Bose sound system. Power windows, mirrors and door locks round off the power conveniences.
This 2002 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe packs the veritable 5.7L GM LS1 V8 motor that puts out 350hp and 365lb-ft in this installation. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a Borg-Warner T56 six-speed manual transmission that’s situated at the rear, affording this generation of Corvette the magical 50-50 weight distribution for optimal handling. Other ‘firsts’ for this generation included variable-effort power steering and drive-by-wire throttle. Headline performance figures at the time were a smidge over 170mph at the top end, and zero to sixty dispatched in 4.5 seconds flat under optimal conditions. Large, ventilated disc brakes at all wheels ensure ample stopping power. This car also has an aftermarket exhaust system installed.
