We are pleased to present this 2005 Chevy Corvette Coupe for your consideration. We found this car online while searching for good deals on used Corvettes. This car is for sale at United Auto Brokers in Marietta, Georgia.
We know the old saying – never buy the first model year of a next-generation Corvette. However, when the C6 was introduced in 2005, it wasn’t so much a “next-generation” model as an evolution of the C5. Truth be told, many of the elements of the car were a carryover from the outgoing fifth-generation Corvette.
Per Chief Engineer Dave Hill, “We had really stretched to upgrade the C5 each year. We wanted to stretch again and annihilate the compromises we had been living with. We went at the new one with the idea of ‘more exciting’ but with a surprising amount of refinement that people wouldn’t believe possible at Corvette’s performance level. We wanted once again to exceed expectations, even if not in a clean-sheet way. But we knew customer expectations would be real high, and we set out to beat ‘em all.”
With regards to this car, we selected it for your consideration because we believe it is an excellent example of an early C6 Corvette that is affordable on just about any budget. Moreover, we believe that this car would be an excellent introductory Corvette for someone who has been considering making the purchasing and becoming part of the Corvette community. The car blends power and performance with more modern handling, ride-comfort and amenities not found on older-generation Corvettes.

What makes this Corvette particularly desirable (in our opinion) is the fact that it only has 42,173 miles on the odometer. Considering that this Corvette is 15 years old, it has averaged less than 3,000 miles per year which is a strong indicator that this car was a weekend cruiser. Moreover, judging from the pictures, it is clear that this Corvette was well cared for. The car is listed for $18,500 at United Auto Brokers.com. It is currently located in Marietta, Georgia (at their storefront there.)
