The Chevrolet Corvette (C6) is the sixth generation of the Corvette sports car that was produced by Chevrolet division of General Motors for the 2005 to 2013 model years. It is the first Corvette with exposed headlamps since the 1962 model. Production variants include the Z06, C6 RS, ZR1, Grand Sport, and 427 Convertible. Racing variants include the C6.R, an American Le Mans Series GT1 championship and 24 Hours of Le Mans GTE-Pro winner.
The Corvette C6 featured new bodywork with exposed headlamps, revised suspension geometry, a larger passenger compartment, a larger 5,967 cc (364.1 cu in; 6.0 L) V8 engine and a higher level of refinement. It is 5.1 inches shorter than the C5, but the wheelbase was increased by 1.2 inches. It is also one inch narrower. The new LS2 engine has a power output of 400 hp at 6,000 rpm and 400 lbft of torque at 4,400 rpm. Like the C5, the Corvette C6's suspension consisted of independent unequal-length double wishbones with transverse fiberglass mono-leaf springs and optional magnetorheological dampers.
The Corvette's manual transmission is fitted with Computer Aided Gear Shifting (CAGS), obligating the driver to shift from 1st gear directly to the 4th gear when operating at lower RPM. This boosts the EPA's derived fuel economy thus allowing the buyer to avoid paying the "gas guzzler" tax. GM badges were added to the car in 2006.
From the "In the Wrapper" Collection, this stunning C6 Corvette Convertible features the desirable 6 Speed Manual gearbox. Having covered only 28,000 miles from new, and only driven on Sunny Summer days, the car is as new throughout. The paint, interior, top, and all finishes are without fault. The car runs and drives perfectly and is fully up to date on all service. Finished in the arresting Red/Tan Color combination and accompanied by all tools, books, and records from new, this is a true investment grade C6 Convertible.
