This is a very unique C5!
Considering the efforts put into the C5’s development, it seems appropriate and ironic that the 50th anniversary of the Corvette fell onto the C5 platform. While the C5 Corvette was produced in abundance, only 200 hundred C5 Commemorative Editions were produced - making this particular 2001 Corvette Commemorative Edition about as rare as it gets. This special C5 from Fast Lane is a perfect modern collectible to add to your garage, or to put on the road to enjoy.
Advanced Automotive Technologies of Michigan developed what they deemed to be the ultimate salute to the sporting legend. If you squint, you could quite easily mistake it for a C1. The details of all the cars replacement panels are unrivaled, with one of the best looking retro modifications out there. It achieves its new found looks from gaining all new panels, and chrome bumpers. It has a set of two-tone seats, arm rest, and steering wheel to carry the theme to the inside of the car.

Powering the build is an LS1 that’s good for 350-horsepower, which is backed by a four-speed automatic transmission. The engine exhales through a throaty Borla exhaust that gives the Corvette a mean growl. It’s also pretty loaded with a memory package, heads up display, dual climate control, AM/FM/CD stereo, power mirrors, power windows, power seats, and power locks. With this car, you’re getting the best of all world with the modern powertrain and creature comforts, combined with the looks of yesteryear.
The example here sports just 25,000 original miles and is number 96 of the special editions. This very unique convertible that’s been well cared for its entire life.
