Chevrolet Europe announced the Corvette C5-R Chronograph prior to the 2000 Le Mans 24h endurance race where the new Corvette C5-R race car made its debut. Both C5-Rs finished strong as 3rd and 4th in the GTS class (10th and 11th overall). Learn more about Corvette and Corvette Racing.
The C5-R Chronograph (a.k.a. "Model 303 Corvette") is based on the Model 303 "Autofahrerchronograph" (Drivers' Chronograph), manufactured by Sinn Spezialuhren GmbH in Frankfurt/Main, Germany. It was produced as a limited edition of 500 units, available from July 2000 for a retail price of € 997.02.
