For 50 years, the Chevrolet Corvette had been carefully crafted from a precise blend of power, performance, style and
comfort. As it celebrates five colorful decades in the automotive business in 2003, Chevrolet's flagship continued its reign
as one of GM's technology and style leaders.
The 50th Anniversary Special Edition, available only on 2003 model year
coupe and convertibles, was a tribute to a half-century of automotive leadership. It includes special Anniversary Red
exterior paint, specific badging, Shale interior and champagne-painted anniversary wheels with special emblems. It also featured
embroidered badges on the seats and floormats, padded door armrests and grips and the convertible features a Shale top. The
package included Magnetic Selective Ride Control.
New on the Corvette for 2003, Magnetic Selective Ride Control used
a revolutionary damper design that controls wheel and body motion with Magneto-Rheological fluid in the shocks . By controlling
the current to an electromagnetic coil inside the piston of the damper, the MR fluis consistency can be changed, resulting
in continuously variable real time damping. As a result, drivers feel a greater sense of security, a quieter, flatter ride
and more precise, responsive handling, particularly during sudden, high-speed maneuvers.
The 2003 was also the 5th Corvette to pace the Indy 500.
