The Chevrolet Corvette (C4) is a sports car that was produced from 1984 to 1996. The convertible returned, as did higher performing engines, exemplified by the 375 hp LT5 found in the ZR-1. The Corvette won its own loyal following as one of the United States' most desirable sports cars. The last C4 was produced on June 20, 1996.
The C4 Corvette was known for its evolved, sleek and modern look. In a departure from the fibre glass panels of previous models, the C4's rear bumpers and panels were made from moulding plastics, a sheet moulding compound. The C4 coupe was the first general production Corvette to have a glass hatchback for better storage access. The Corvette C4 came standard with an electronic dashboard with a digital liquid crystal display dash, with graphics for speed and RPM and digital displays for other important engine functions.
This Corvette has been lovingly cared for and cherished.  In October 2013 the vehicle was sent away to the original Corvette specialists, Claremont Corvette, where it was repainted at a cost of £5,400. The vehicle has been maintained regardless of cost, with a history file supporting service and maintenance. The vehicle presents in unmarked bright red paintwork, complemented by black leather interior, detailed engine bay and split rim alloy wheels fitted with 245/45R17 and 275/40R17 tyres. The vehicle has been garaged all it’s life, whilst in the UK and used sparingly only on dry days. This is a stunning example of the striking C4 design turning heads and without doubt a serious show car contender.
