2001 Chevrolet Corvette on 2040-cars
Hammond, Indiana, United States
More details at: email@example.com .
For sale is a 2001 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible. This 2001 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible is powered by its 5.7L
LS1 V8 engine and is backed by a 4L60E 4-speed automatic transmission. New for the C5 Corvettes that were
introduced in 1998 was that the transmission was relocated to the rear of the car to form an integrated,
rear-mounted transaxle assembly, connected to the all-aluminum LS1 engine via a "Torque-Tube" which enabled a 50-50
front to rear weight distribution for improved handling. The LS1 engine initially produced 345 horsepower but was
increased in 2001 to 350 horsepower and 360 ft./lbs. of torque. Showing only 18,524 miles on the odometer, this
one-owner C5 has been pampered and always been stored in a garage! This beautiful 2001 Corvette is painted in a
Navy Blue Metallic exterior with a white convertible soft top and black leather interior inside. With 14,173
convertible Corvettes produced in 2001, only 2,587 rolled out off the assembly line painted in this color. Options
on this 2001 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible for sale include: Dual Zone Air Conditioning, AM/FM Radio with CD
Player, Manual Convertible Top, Cruise Control, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Power Locks, Power Seats, Power
Windows, Anti-Lock Brakes, Telescopic & Tilt Wheel, Traction Control, Keyless Entry, Seat Belts, Driver and
Passenger Airbags, Anti-Theft System, Heads Up Display, Leather Interior, Aluminum Wheels, and Radial Tires. If you
are looking for a fun summer convertible to enjoy, this awesome 2001 Corvette is the ticket.

Callaway has released a few renderings of a design study for a shooting brake version of the C7 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. The company says it wants to create a long-roof version of America's sports car to offer buyers more interior room and a vehicle with "unique style." The company says it will use structural carbon fiber for the new body bits, which suggests the conversion shouldn't add too much more weight to the Corvette. Along with a few mechanical tweaks, the Callaway Corvette Stingray AeroWagon could breeze past the 200 miles per hour barrier.
Provided that they get enough interest, Callaway estimates they will be able to effect the changes on the Chevrolet for around $15,000, and says the conversion work should be available through its network of dealers. You can check out the brief press release below for more information, or head over to the Callaway site to plunk down a deposit - but before you do, we want to know... do you find this C7 wagon interesting?

A couple weeks ago, we watched a Chevrolet Silverado get dominated by a Dodge Ram Heavy Duty in a fullsize pickup tug-of-war, but in that truck's defense, Chevy's Vortec gas engine was no match for the torquey Cummins turbo diesel. For our next round of vehicular tug-of-war, a Duramax-powered Silverado HD takes on Volkswagen Touareg V10 TDI.
Now, on paper, putting the Duramax V8's 365 horsepower and 660 pound-feet of torque up against the V10's 310 hp and 553 lb-ft looks like an easy win for the Bowtie, but unfortunately, this battle has a similar result as the Dodge versus Chevy video, with the Silverado smoking its tires trying to move forward as it gets pulled backwards. Put another way: YouTube 2, Chevy Silverado 0.
It just goes to show, though, that big tires, bolt-on fender flares and goofy smoke stacks don't improve your towing abilities. Besides, what did the Silverado driver expect when the Touareg V10 TDI has towed a Boeing 747 in the past?
If you don't wish to know who won the 2014 Rolex 24 at Daytona, you should avert your eyes right now. We'll even give you a double-space to skedaddle...
For those of you still with us, the first race in the United SportsCar Championship (USCC) is done, but the discussions about it certainly won't end for a while. Daytona Prototypes claimed the first four overall places, the top spot taken by the No. 5 Action Express Coyote-Chevrolet Corvette DP driven by Joao Barbosa, Christian Fittipaldi, Sebastien Bourdain and Burt Friselle. The 16th and final caution of the race bunched the field up for an eight-minute sprint to the flag, so the first place getter finished just 1.4 seconds ahead of the No. 10 Wayne Taylor Racing Dallara-Chevrolet Corvette DP driven by Max Angelelli. Third place went to Brian Friselle in the No. 9 Action Express Chevrolet Corvette DP, 20 seconds down. Chevrolet power hasn't taken the overall win since 2003, eleven years later it scores a one-two-three-four. The No. 6 Muscle Milk/Pickett Racing ORECA-Nissan 03 scored fifth place, the top LMP2 finisher.
The Prototype Challenge class win went to the No. 54 CORE Autosport team of Colin Braun, Jon Bennett, Mark Wilkins and James Gue.
