The 2005 Corvette is more competition-influenced than any previous Corvette. The goal was a performance car that would be at home in virtually any environment. That means raw performance, improved ride comfort, a precisely built and technically sophisticated interior and contemporary new body.

"The sixth generation represents a comprehensive upgrade to the Corvette," said Dave Hill, Corvette chief engineer and GM Performance Cars vehicle line executive. "Our goal was to create a Corvette that does more things well than any other performance car."

The car features dramatic new styling, the new 6.0L V-8 engine that produces 400 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque (298 kW and 542 Nm), a revised suspension and more powerful brakes. It delivers extreme performance capabilities and offers value, style, quality and comfort.

The 2005 Coupe production begins in the summer of 2004, with the Convertible following in the fall of 2004. European sales begin in October, and other regions by early 2005. All models will be built in Bowling Green, Ky.
