Matt Farah of TheSmokingTire owns a Chevrolet C5 Corvette so he’s able to give plenty of insight on the C5 Corvette shown in this video, which has been enhanced with a built LS3, goodies off of a C6 Z06, and a few other refinements.
The clean white Vette you see here has C6 Z06 brakes, shifter, gearbox, and rear assembly. Meanwhile, the LS3 produces 491 rear wheel horsepower, and rides on a set of KW variant 3 coilovers and Phadt sway bars. The power and suspension are managed through wide, sticky tires wrapped around gold HRE performance wheels. All these parts come together to create a C5 with a sharp turn in, plenty of power, and good looks.
An interesting video for sure – Farah’s comparison to his own Corvette gives viewers a better idea of what the car feels like. Go ahead and hit play to see for yourself.
