20. 1999-2004 C5-R
Competition is something that the Corvette has always done well, and the C5-R is an example of that. You might have seen the C5-R on the track at some point, and it was sponsored by quite a few racing companies. The C5-R did something that no Corvette had done before and introduced a racing style to the vehicle. The lightweight fiberglass body and the ground-effects make the C5-R a standout vehicle, to say the least. These models were not sold to the general public, so getting your hands on one isn’t going to be easy.
The C5-R stands out for several reasons, but the race-ready design was the first and perhaps the largest. The car had a great deal of success racing in the Le Mans. After this generation of Corvette, Chevrolet was taken more seriously in the racing world.
