Value may not be the first word that springs to mind when looking at a Corvette delivers a combination of acceleration and handling performance matched only by other high performance sports cars and various exotics, all of which are FAR more expensive, both to purchase and maintain. There's really nothing quite like the Corvette sports car in the price range. This car has been well cared for and is an outstanding driver. Its loaded with options, including 1SC Preferred Equipment Group, Active Handling, polished wheels, Delco/Bose CD audio w/12 disc changer and more! In addition to the awesomely powerful V8 engine and above options, the standard equipment includes dual front airbags, air conditioning with dual-zone automatic climate controls, cruise control, leather upholstery, 6-way power seats, illuminated visor mirrors, antilock brakes with four-wheel discs, power steering, driver information center, outside-temperature gauge, heated power mirrors, remote keyless entry, theft-deterrent system, stainless steel exhaust, retractable headlights, daytime running lights, fog lights, Bose speakers, 6-way power seats, extended-mobility (run flat) Z-rated tires, tire-pressure monitor, intermittent wipers, limited-slip differential, traction control with active handling and cast alloy wheels. This Corvette is very comfortable for both the driver and passenger and the low doorsills and narrow side rails make getting in and out easy. Its handsome analog gauges are easier to use and more satisfying than digital displays. The 2001 Corvette's LS1 V8 engine is potent and when mated to an automatic transmission is fast in traffic, quick at the starting gate and shifts with authority. The suspension responses are surgically precise, if you can imagine a surgical instrument with 350 horsepower and great gobs of torque. This Corvette offers sharp reflexes while driving down rural roads. It provides a superb blend of muscle and finesse, with a much higher tolerance for mistakes of the enthusiastic variety, complemented by brakes that are nothing short of race worthy. This car is equipped with Chevrolet's second-generation Active Handling system. This magical system gets you out of slides before trouble strikes, by applying braking to the individual corners as needed. It utilizes on-board computer and sensors to measure yaw, lateral acceleration and steering wheel position, then brings into play the capabilities of the ABS brake and traction control systems to smoothly assist the driver in maintaining vehicle control in oversteer or understeer situations. Unlike some cars with such systems that are overly aggressive in assisting before the driver wants or often needs such assistance, the Corvette systems were carefully calibrated to limit such intrusiveness. Aside from an Active Handling message on the instrument panel, you might not even realize youve been assisted. This Corvette is an absolute joy to drive, the brakes didn't fade under extreme conditions, the transmission and shifts are solid and tight. There is no question that this is an all-American, world-class GT.
