4. 1999 Corvette C5-R Racecar
Motorsports and the Corvette have a very special relationship, but it was the C5-R which put the Corvette’s racing prowess on the global scale. The car, in its trademark yellow livery, won in the GT category in a number of endurance racing events including the 24 Hours of Daytona, the 12 Hours of Sebring and the famous 24 hours of Le Mans. The C5-R also won a championship in the American Le Mans Series. Chevrolet is still a successful name in racing, currently competing with a C6 based race car, but it was the C5-R that set the team up for international success.
