Check out these great 1997 Corvette images. The C5 Corvette looked nothing like its predecessor. It was a longer, larger car than the outgoing C4, and it didn’t appear to have a straight edge anywhere on its body. The front-end looked familiar with its concealed headlights and missing grill. As you can see in these pictures and photos it moved things on a lot. The 1997 Corvette still looks stunning in these 50+ pictures.
