Corvette Second generation

The second generation of the Chevrolet Corvette, also known as the C2, was produced from 1963 to 1967. It was a significant departure from the first generation Corvette in terms of design and engineering, and represented a major leap forward in the car's evolution.

The C2 Corvette was designed by Larry Shinoda and was heavily influenced by the Sting Ray racer, a concept car that had been developed by GM in the early 1960s. The car had a distinctive "split window" rear design, with a divided rear window that was only used in the 1963 model year. The C2 also featured hidden headlights, a new independent rear suspension system, and a range of new engines, including a 327 cubic inch V8 that produced up to 375 horsepower.

In addition to its impressive performance and advanced engineering, the C2 Corvette was also a true sports car in every sense of the word. It had a low-slung, aggressive stance and a sleek, aerodynamic body that was designed to cut through the air with minimal resistance. It was available as a convertible or a coupe, and was widely regarded as one of the most beautiful and desirable cars of its era.

Over the course of its production, the C2 Corvette underwent a number of changes and upgrades, including the addition of disc brakes, a more powerful 427 cubic inch V8 engine, and a range of special editions and limited-run models. By the time production ended in 1967, the C2 Corvette had firmly established itself as a classic of American automotive design and had set the stage for future generations of the iconic sports car.
