By the turn of the Millennium, America’s Only Sports Car was a few years removed from its long-lived C4 self and into the fifth generation. For Chevy, Corvette and other collectors who have been on the lookout for one of the specialty Corvettes, we might have just what you want in this 2000 Corvette Lingenfelter Convertible. This custom Corvette is consigned by a local client who has kept the car garaged for the past 13 years and only has 52,833 axtual miles with a clean CarFax.

Like all Corvettes since mid-1981, this Corvette was made at GM’s Bowling Green, Kentucky factory. It left the factory with the following options – polished aluminum wheels; adjustable sport bucket seats with leather-trimmed seating surfaces; Delco-Bose AM/FM stereo with 12-disc compact disc changer; Active Handling system; Head-up Display; Dual-zone electronic air-conditioning; power telescoping and manual tilt steering column; six-way power passenger seat; Memory package; fog lamps; and Twilight Sentinel. This example was shipped to Woodfield Chevrolet in Schaumburg, Illinois, a Chicago suburb. 

Finished in Magnetic Red II Metallic Tint Coat, the car’s paint and trim are in overall very good order. The bodywork is straight and solid, the engine bay is extremely tidy, the Super Starter battery looks new, the cargo area behind the seats is neat and tidy and the body-colored bumpers are in excellent shape. Only 2,941 examples, or 8.7 percent of the 2000 run came painted in Magnetic Red II. 

This car rolls on Hankook radials, 245/45ZR17 in front and 275/40ZR18 in back. Each tire is mounted on a factory polished aluminum wheel. The tires all have good tread and the wheels look great. The car’s Baer Eradispeed racing brake rotors have been cross drilled and slotted for better heat dissipation along with rear brake cooling ducts. Bilstein Sport shock absorbers keep the ride taut and smooth. 

Under the forward-hinged carbon fiber hood is a 5.7L LS1 V-8 with some major upgrades that generates about 600 horsepower! Shortly after purchase, the original owner, Anthony S., in Arlington Heights, Illinois, bought several Lingenfelter performance parts – ported and polished cylinder heads, larger fuel injectors, larger intake and exhaust valves in October and November 2000. This car also has an ATI ProCharger supercharger, a ProCharger intercooler, B&B Triflow headers, a set of FLP long tube headers with high-flow catalytic converter and a X-pipe Corsa Indy Pace Car catback exhaust and quad tailpipes; a FLP level IV transmission with a Yank 3000 torque converter and a DTE 3.73:1 rear end with hardened output shaft; LS6 intake manifold; LS6 valve springs; MSD Ignition; Racetronix fuel pump with 42 lb/hr injectors; Motor City Mold carbon fiber hood; lots of chrome and painted pieces under the hood. A Borg-Warner T-56 six-speed manual transmission, Z06 clutch and a limited-slip differential back this engine. 

Driver convenience and safety features include electronic climate control with dual zones, speed-sensitive power rack-and-pinion steering, power four-wheel disc brakes with anti-lock, traction control, dual front airbags, cruise control, power telescoping and manual tilt steering column, power bucket seats with memory settings, power windows, power locks and power and heated sideview mirrors. Remote decklid and fuel filler door releases.  

Red and black bucket seats are in overall great condition while the carpeting is in good, original order. The leather-wrapped steering wheel, instrument panel and inner door panels are all in very good shape. The center console and console-mounted shift lever look good. Ancillary Autometer Cobalt boost and fuel pressure gauges are mounted in the driver’s side interior A-pillar. A factory Delco-Bose AM/FM stereo with a 12-disc CD changer with an Infinity Beta 10-inch subwoofer and an Audison 250-watt amplifier. 

A major change from its predecessor the C4, was a hydroformed box frame, a design that offered an improved structural platform, especially for a convertible bodystyle. To improve handling, the transmission was relocated to form an integrated, rear-mounted transaxle assembly. Connected to the all-new LS1 engine via a torque tube, the engine/transmission arrangement enabled a 50-50 percent front-rear weight distribution. The manual was replaced by a Borg-Warner T-56 six-speed. 

In 1997, only a hatchback coupé was offered, with the convertible – the first to offer a trunk since 1962 – following later for model year 1998. 

Aside from cosmetic differences and new offerings for optional equipment, there were few fundamental changes from one model year to the next within the production run of the C5. One of the more popular “high-tech” options introduced in the Corvette line was a head-up display or HUD, while another innovation was the Active Handling System (first available as an option for 1998, then standard on all 2001 models). The C5 was also the first Corvette to incorporate a drive-by-wire throttle; and variable-effort steering, whereby the assist level of the power steering is varied according to vehicle speed (more at lower speeds, less at higher speeds). Notable, though rarely discussed, is the C5 generation was the first model to adopt the parallel or ‘tandem’ windshield wiper configuration, abandoning the opposed configuration used on every previous Corvette model since 1953. 

The manual transmission’s Computer-Aided Gear Shifting (CAGS) results in an obligatory shift from first directly into fourth gear under certain driving conditions; the system can be deactivated through PCM tuning or the use of an aftermarket device.  

Suspension choices for the base model C5 were limited to the standard suspension (RPO FE1), with options for either the autocross-inspired FE3 Sport Suspension (included with the Z51 Performance and Handling Package and standard on the 1999–2000 FRC) or the F45 Selective Ride Control Suspension, which permitted “on-the-fly” driver selection of different ride characteristics (sport or touring). Late in the production run (starting with the 2003 model year), the F55 Magnetic Selective Ride Control Suspension replaced the F45 as the third suspension choice. The racing inspired FE4 suspension used for the Z06 is stiffer than any offered on the base model C5 and is unique to that model with no optional suspension offered. The C5’s suspension consisted of independent unequal-length double wishbones with transverse fiberglass mono-leaf springs and optional magnetorheological dampers. 

The C5’s modular body panels make excellent use of a lightweight composite material known in the automotive industry as SMC or Sheet Molded Composite, a type of fiberglass that is blended and bonded with plastics. SMC provides better protection against direct blows because it is very stiff and will not dent. The floorboards on the C5 are a composite sandwich of SMC with balsa wood in the middle. Balsa wood was chosen for its extreme stiffness, light weight and excellent sound absorption qualities. The all-aluminum LS1 overhead valve engine is much lighter than its bi-metal (cast iron block, aluminum heads) predecessor. The composite leaf springs are much lighter and sit much lower than typical coil springs and help provide the C5 with its excellent ride characteristics and distinctive ride height.  

Documentation includes original window sticker, various performance brochures, receipts and other assorted documents. 

Competition to this Corvette in 2000 included Aston Martin’s DB7 Volanté, BMW’s M Roadster, Ferrari’s 355 Cabrio, Jaguar’s XKR Convertible, Panoz’s Esperante and Porsche’s 911 Carrera 4 Cabrio.  

Fifth-generation Corvettes are great finds on the collector market. This one has the added punch of Lingenfelter and other modifications to set it apart from other Corvettes of that generation. Stop by MotoeXotica Classic Cars today to check it out for yourself.
