Euro versions switch between MPH and Km/h which also changes all the other readouts between Imperial (or English as the yanks call it) and Metric.

The C5 was a huge engineering leap forward from all the corvettes before it. There has not been another such leap in Corvette engineering since until the current development of the mid-engined C8.

Re: Potential new C5 owner - some basic questions


Hi guys

Thanks for your replies. I was very confused as this topic seemed to have disappeared for a while.

Anyway, I went to see the car but decided I didn't need another V8. Only joking, I saw it, loved it, and after a lot of soul-searching and a little man maths, I decided to go for it and picked it up on Thursday. I've only driven it at rush hour on the M25, then on the M11 in the pouring rain, so not really had chance to get a good feel for it, but loving the looks and the feel of finally owning some American muscle.

Cheers

Tim
