My irrational relationship with the Chevrolet Corvette C5 began at the turn of the last millennium – the year 2000 marked the return of the Corvette to Le Mans and as a young race-goer I instantly fell in love with the ground-shaking baritone blare emitted from the competition cars’ straight through side exit exhausts.

Snared by the racers, I developed a wholly unhealthy penchant for road going ‘Vettes of C5 vintage. At face value it might not seem it, but this is a great ‘guilty pleasures’ car.
