2003 Chevrolet Corvette - Price Quote

Visit Chevrolet for more information on the Chevrolet Corvette.

America's favorite sports car has been wowing owners and jealous onlookers for fifty years. To celebrate this half-century of automotive excellence, Chevrolet offers a 2003 50th Anniversary Edition. For Corvette enthusiasts (and there are quite a few out there), this special model is simply a must have. For first-time customers, there isn't much you have to say to invoke interest in the 2003 Chevrolet Corvette. Listing the Corvette's capabilities is generally more than enough, for there is no question that this perennial speedster can really move.

Available Models
The 50th Anniversary Edition model is joined by two-door hatchback, convertible and Z06 coupe models.

Interior Features
It's almost a shame that only two people can sit inside the 2003 Chevrolet Corvette and watch the landscape zip by. If the performance ability of the Corvette doesn't impress (a highly unlikely scenario), its interior should. All models receive such standard features as air conditioning with dual-zone automatic climate controls, power steering, tilt leather-wrapped steering wheel, cruise control, leather upholstery, bucket seats, 6-way power seats, Bose AM/FM/CD player, digital clock, tachometer, outside-temperature indicator, map lights, illuminated visor mirrors, remote decklid/hatchback release, floormats and more.

The 50th Anniversary Edition spices up the interior as well as the exterior with a number of unique features. With a Shale interior including color coordinated instrument panel and console, embroidered badges on the seats and floormats, padded door armrests and grips and a Shale convertible top, this special model is truly a collector's item.

Exterior Features
We all know a Corvette when we see one. There is no denying the Corvette's look, and other manufacturers give it the ultimate respect it deserves by refraining from ever thinking of emulating its style. The 50th Anniversary Edition is coated in sleek 50th Anniversary Red exterior paint, with specific badging and champagne-painted anniversary wheels with special emblems also part of the package.

This is where it gets fun. The standard engine on the 2003 Chevrolet Corvette is a 5.7-liter V8 with a staggering 350 horsepower at 5600 rpm. Customers can choose between 4 speed automatic transmission and 6-speed manual transmission. There's no point in mentioning that the Corvette is fast - this is an enormous understatement, to say the least. For even more speed, one need only step up to the Z06 hardback, which offers a similar-sized engine that pumps out a whopping 405 horsepower at 6000 rpm (6-speed manual transmission). Yes, it can really fly.

Handling all that speed is a steady suspension system, scalpel-sharp steering components and Magnetic Selective Ride Control. Available for the first time in 2003, Magnetic Selective Ride Control uses a revolutionary damper design that controls wheel and body motion with Magneto-Rheological fluid in the shocks, making the Corvette feel as though it extends from the driver's fingertips.

Safety and Security
Everything is standard on the 2003 Chevrolet Corvette, so why would manufacturers stop at safety? All models offer dual front airbags, antilock 4-wheel disc brakes, an antiskid system, a tire pressure monitor and traction control.
