About Chevy Corvette

One of America's most successful sports cars, the Chevy Corvette got its start in 1953 as an attractive two-seater known more for its look than its performance. All that changed in 1955, as a V8 engine, featuring advanced power-enhancing parts, became offered and within a couple of years, the Corvette was hitting 60 miles per hour in less than 6 seconds. Throughout the next four decades the Chevy Corvette would take on a variety of different forms for each era, from the Sting Ray of the '60s to the C5 of the late '90s. Each generation is a little bit different from one another but the same emphasis on performance and top-quality parts has always remained the same.

The C5 Chevy Corvette premiered for the 1997 model year and stayed in production until 2004. With a top speed of around 171 miles per hour, it was also the sleekest and curviest version of the model to be produced. The C5 was equipped with an LS1 5.7L V8 good for approximately 345 horsepower and mated to either a six-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission. Horsepower was increased to 350 in 2001. And although the model debuted as a coupe only, a convertible version was released in 1998. The Z06 replaced the ZR-1 using an upgraded LS6 engine capable of 385 horsepower, which was increased even more to 405 for the last two years of the C5's assembly.

The sixth generation Chevy Corvette is as full of American muscle as it gets. Available in three trims (base, Z06, and ZR1), even the standard Corvette shows off heavy-duty performance with a 6.2L V8 with 430 horsepower. The engine is mated to either a six-speed manual or an optional six-speed automatic transmission. The Z06 steps it up a notch with a 7.0L V8 that showcases over 500 HP but it's the top-level ZR1 that burns up the pavement. Thanks to a supercharged 6.2L V8 engine, the ZR1 offers 638 horsepower and is mated to a six-speed manual. There are three choices of suspension: standard, Magnetic Ride Control, and Z51, with each different suspension designed to provide a smooth ride to go along with the penchant for performance the car is known for. As for the exterior accessories, this generation of the Chevy Corvette displays exposed headlights for the first time since the early 1960s along with a smaller rear compared to the previous generation. The C6 Corvette has also received numerous awards, including being named to Car and Driver magazine's Ten Best List (2008) as well as being dubbed a Consumer Guide Best Buy (2008).

The 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray is the most powerful standard Corvette model ever, with impressive 455 horsepower and 460 lb. ft. of torque. It is also the most capable Corvette, with Z51-equipped models able to accelerate from 0-60 in 3.8 seconds. The sports car incorporates an all-new frame structure and chassis, a new powertrain and completely new exterior and interior designs. Like the '63 Sting Ray, the 2014 Corvette embodies performance leadership, delivering advanced technologies, jaw-dropping design, and breathtaking driving experience. Drivers of this ride are a loyal bunch and typically want the best of the best. At CARiD.com, that's precisely what we offer.

A spoiler is intended to control the way the air streaming over the car is affecting the rear of the vehicle. Spoilers cause drag, and actually slow the car down or make it unstable, if not properly designed. A correctly designed spoiler can counteract the lifting forces that most cars experience when speeds get high, and keep the car on the road.
Installing a dash kit is not that difficult. It is in fact quite easy if you just observe a couple of key points. Most important of all is cleaning the surfaces destined for beautification. Before you start peeling off the protective liner from the adhesive, you should “Dry fit” all the pieces. Wear rubber gloves when you apply the adhesive promoter, so you...

2006 Chevy Corvette
| Posted by | (Spanaway, WA)

Mounted this sensor to my Dodge Charger SRT8. After much thought, I mounted the actual sensor on the bottom of the factory front plate, this kept it from being accidentally hit and kept the awesome look of my front end. This was very easy to install based on the instructions received, it took longer than recommended only because it was tough to route through my firewall, on most cars it would not be an issue. I did mount the controller under the hood rather than inside the cab as recommended due to firewall issues. The product works great and allows me to keep from hitting hard-to-see curbs. I would gladly recommend it to anyone wanting a front sensor that is reasonably priced for the return received.
