The C1 was amazing, but the C2 moved the Corvette far further. Its design stemmed from two racing cars as did lots of its engineering and it looked like nothing else on the road. Furthermore, it offered loads of comfort perks and very powerful engines ranging from 250 hp to 560 hp (officially 430 hp) that could be paired with an automatic, or three- or four-speed manual.
Throughout its 5-year production span, the car was constantly upgraded in every respect, becoming a proper beast on the track, but still keeping much of its original flair and astonishing looks.
Moreover, it was extremely popular, reaching the number of 117,964 units sold in just 5 years. To this day it remains one of the most iconic US cars and among the most beloved Corvette models.
