Everything You Want to Know About the 2003 Corvette, All in One Place.
The arrival of the 2003 Chevrolet Corvette represented the culmination of fifty years of evolution for General Motors flagship automobile. It had been during the spring of 1953 that the first Corvette had been unveiled at GM’s “Motorama”.
Since that time, it had transformed into an entirely new vision of Corvette with each evolution. “Few vehicles have had the staying power of Corvette” said Rick Baldick, Corvette Brand Manager. “We believe that much of that success comes from a willingness to embrace advancing technology while remaining true to Corvette’s glorious history.
As we celebrate our golden anniversary in 2003, we honor our past and cast a bright eye toward the future.”
Now, with fifty years behind it, Chevrolet executives were prepared to commemorate the half-century-old sports car through a series of planned events that included the introduction of a Special Edition 2003 C5 Corvette.
The “50th Anniversary Special Edition” Corvette package, available only on base coupes and convertibles, consisted of a special metallic-burgundy Anniversary Red exterior with champagne colored wheels and specific “anniversary edition” badging.
