2004 marks the introduction of the 6th-generation Corvette as a 2005 model. As with any new-generation Corvette, anticipation is rampant. C6 represents an important departure from C5 both in terms of exterior and interior styling and chassis dynamics. It features a revamped platform (to be shared with the new Cadillac XLR roadster), fixed headlights (for the first time since 1962) and an edgier, more compact body. This GM-licensed book takes the enthusiast on an illustrated tour of how C6 developed from the drawing board to the production line.- Officially Licensed by GM- Full development details and technical specifications- First-person stories from key Corvette engineers and designers.

Review:

Vette Magazine, October 2007

“While Berg’s words flow crisply throughout, the real glory of this book lies in its magnificent photography and illustrations ... Factor in Berg’s extensive research, painstaking documentation, and unprecedented access to the story’s key players, and Corvette C6 makes a worthy addition to any Vette fan’s permanent book collection.”
