Gateway Classic Cars of Houston is proud to offer up this unique 2002 Chevrolet corvette. This car was built to show support for the fight the end breast cancer and has a very colorful paint scheme, but also has some serious power to it.
Under the hood of this beauty is a 5.7-liter V8. The engine has been set up with twin turbos in a sort of sleeper style. The turbos are in the rear where the mufflers would normally be. This allows for a very clean and factory look under the hood other than a large aluminum intercooler. All the engine work was performed by Gulf Coast Performance and the car was tuned by England green Corp. to 445whp/445wtq. Sending all of that boosted power to the rear is a four-speed automatic transmission that shifts firmly through the gears.
Upon opening the door, the driver will immediately notice this car is meant to be over the top. The doors are fitted with parts to allow them to open out and up in a Lamborghini style. Both seats are done in a custom lamb skin pink to match the exterior paint. Aiding in driver comfort, this sweet ride comes loaded with items including a radio/12-disc CD player, power seats, tilt/telescopic wheel, keyless entry, and power mirrors. All these features add up to be one comfortable sportscar.
Moving outward, the exterior of the car is probably one of the most eye catching C5s you will ever see. The base paint is a pewter metallic that has pink flames sprayed on top. The flames show good depth and really highlight the fact that this was a high-quality paint job. The car sits atop chrome alloy wheels that are wrapped in performance low profile tires with good tread life left in them. Overall this car is an award-winning eye catcher with loads of power!
