When you're looking for a car to keep as a survivor, you want this 2001 Chevrolet Corvette. Not only is it a one-owner, ultra-low mileage car, but also it's so untouched that even the tires are original!
We all love the sleek styling of the C5 that made it an instant classic. Plus, red Corvettes are a true American icon... but not all of them are created equal. The Magnetic Red Metallic on this coupe has a deeper tone to give it added sophistication. And this car earns this enhanced image. After all, with only 6,425 miles, we would have put more on the odometer if all we did was drive it from our showroom to Naples and back once a year! And this ultra-low mileage shows in the way the body panels fit, the nearly zero signs of use, and how the whole package retains a showroom level of shine – even on the optional 17-inch high polished alloys.
The tan interior is classically attractive, and such low mileage means there was hardly any time to even put a crease in the leather seats. As a true premium sports machine, it comes loaded with plenty of great modern features. This includes power seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, dual airbags, power windows, power locks, cruise control, keyless entry, and a Bose AM/FM/CD stereo. The full list is so long that we suggest you view the included window sticker for all the info. There you'll also see great options like the windshield head up display (HUD). The rear-view mirror now has OnStar, but the original unit comes with the sale. There's also an upgrade to the transparent targa roof panel that fits neatly into the large trunk (the color-matched one comes with the sale, too.) And because this modern classic has dual zone automatic climate control, feel free to take the roof out and stay comfortable long into the summer season.
Just like the rest of the car, the engine bay looks showroom fresh. And on a survivor like this, it's great to have the original engine and original components in place (the original intake comes with the sale, too.) More than just exceptionally well-preserved, you're going to love this Corvette for its LS1 power. This fuel-injected V8 is exceptionally versatile. It releases a fierce growl and ferocious power when the accelerator is prodded, but the animal remains tame and caged when it's not time to be aggressive. The same goes for the four-speed automatic transmission with its quick kick-downs as well as overdrive cruising comfort. Plus, power steering, four-wheel disc brakes, cruise control, and a well-balanced fully independent suspension complete a perfect grand touring package. And as you look at the ultra-tidy engine bay and undercarriage photos, you see that the level of care this coupe has received makes it a true cut-above survivor.
Corvette people know the value an example that remains this factory fresh and looks this amazing. It even has the right paperwork, like the original window sticker and owner's manual. So if you're looking to have a survivor in your garage, don't miss this C5. Call today!!!
