An American Dream (Chevrolet Corvette C6) Part 1

Originally, "Corvette" is a type of warship designed for patrol and escort service. But today I will share my impressions about an American car which is also known as "Corvette".




Even when surrounded by such elite models as the "Bentley Continental" and the "Maseratti GranTurismo" in an underground garage, our yellow Chevrolet Corvette C6 was still stunning in appearance. The long slopping hood and the short snub tail make the low body silhouette look like out of time. The succession of the "Corvette" generations is obvious, and it's great that the car has been changing for several decades, but has always remained instantly recognizable.

The inside
I was completely shocked, as I got into the car... "Welcome to 90's"- so I would characterize this interior, which would be more suitable for the "Opel Calibra" or for some other budget sports car from the late 20th century. There is no hint that you're going to drive one of the fastest cars produced in the USA.


The "highlights" of the interior are the black & yellow plastic which cracks everywhere, the ancient display of the stereo system and the huge gaps between the components. But, as in the "Camaro", the electrically adjustable seats are simply wonderful.

An important note here is that you can't through your stuff back, since almost immediately behind the seat there is the wall of the trunk, and at one point it flew out of my head, so I played squash a bit with the car- the blindly thrown bag ricocheted off the plastic and flopped down on my knees.
