In 1962 Chevrolet presented the second generation Corvette, the Corvette Stingray C2. It got a new look with a longer nose and the characteristic headlight as seen on the 1959 Chevrolet Stingray racer. GM-design boss Bill Mitchell and his assistent Larry Shinoda designed the car.

Like its predecessor the bodywork is made out of glass fibre to save weight. Special for this car is the independent suspension. Spectacular is the in 1966 released 427-edition with a 6999 cc V8 engine which produces 425 hp. It accelerates in about 5 seconds to 70 mph and its topspeed is 153 mph. Famous is the ‘split-window’. The production of the C2 ended in 1968 with the introduction of the C3. By then 117,964 C2′s were produced.
