 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible C6 Concept at 2004 SEMA

The sixth-generation, all-new 2005 Corvette is already considered a benchmark performance vehicle. For the enthusiast, however, such a benchmark is just a starting point to build something even better. Special high-performance features produce an estimated 25-horsepower boost to the LS2 engine's normal 400-hp output. Added to this power are subtle styling features that put this Victory Red Corvette convertible on an even faster track.
