Chevrolet Corvette C5
The fifth generation of Chevy’s popular Corvette was introduced in 1996 and stayed on the market until 2005. It sold in big numbers and became a popular choice of sports car fans all over the world. The C5 boasted a 350 hp 5.7-liter V8 in the front.
The gearbox and rear suspension are also together (transaxle system), which gives the C5 perfect weight distribution for sharp handling. That coupled with its lightweight and aerodynamic body to give it some great performance numbers. You can also get it in convertible form. With those 350 HP under the hood, this is one very fast, but still affordable, automobile.
