The Chevrolet Corvette has had a great run spanning 60 years and eight design generations. The two-door, two-passenger sports car started out with a front engine and has since transformed into a mid-engine vehicle, beginning with the 2020 model year. Salvagebid online auctions featuring damaged vehicles for sale give you easy access to exciting deals on multiple options across different Corvette model years. Let’s look at some of the popular models you can find at our repairable salvage car auctions.
The Corvette ZR1 is reminiscent of the brand’s performance-oriented design sensibilities. It received great attention and appreciation when it burst onto the scene in 1990 and quickly attained supercar status. The ZR1 features a twin-cam LT5 engine that can deliver up to 375 horsepower and take the speedster from 0-60 in just 4.9 seconds.
The C5 Corvette is the successor to the C4, which had a massive 13-year production run. Spotting highly styled body lines, a re-engineered dash, and a larger driver compartment, the fifth generation Vette is well known for significant improvement on the performance front. It is powered by an LS1 engine that turns out 345 horsepower. The C5 Corvette can go from 0-60 in 4.72 seconds.
The track-inspired Corvette Z06’s 2015 model year boasts several innovative improvements including world-class shift times. It saw the introduction of the 650 horsepower, supercharged LT4 engine which is mated with an 8-speed automatic transmission. It is available in coupe and convertible models and can go from 0-60 in just 2.95 seconds.
Corvette Grand Sport
The 2017 Grand Sport model year is a tribute to the Arkus-Duntov Grand Sport of the 60s. In line with the mantra “form follows function”, the car gives you a blend of looks and performance. It features an upgraded suspension that allows it to pull 1.6 gs of cornering force. Its 460 horsepower engine allows it to go from 0-60 in 3.6 seconds.
The Callaway Sledgehammer is a joint creation of GM and Callaway, a performance car modification firm. The work done on the Callaway Sledgehammer by the firm was aimed at bringing up performance to levels not witnessed before. The car is fitted with a NASCAR spec engine block and twin turbos, allowing it to reach 254.7 MPH. Its title as the fastest street-legal car was only surpassed in 2010 by Bugatti.
