Just received from Chevrolet a two-sided, 8 1/2 x 11, brochure on the C6.
A quick perusal reveals only one item that seems to be at odds with the scuttlebutt to date. Quoting from the brochure: " . . . that power is transmitted to the road through a standard short-throw six-speed manual transmission or available automatic transmission with computer-controlled Performance Shifting."

There has been some speculation on this site that the automatic would be standard and the six-speed manual would be an option.

I'm assuming, I hope correctly, the the world "standard" in the official brochure implies there won't be an up-charge for the six-speed manual.

In additional, the brochure confirms the eight color options:

Machine Silver Metallic
Le Mans Blue Metallic
Artic White
Daytona Sunset Orange Metallic
Black
Precision Red
Magnetic Red Metallic
Millennium Yellow

There will be an additional charge for the Le Mans Blue, the Magnetic Red and the Millennium Yellow.

I would have scanned and posted the brochure, but it contains no other new data, or images as far as I can tell.

I too have the two sided card in PDF format. I think it is the same thing, not much new. I can email it to anyone if you want. Too big to post. I also picked up a pamphlet and poster of the C6 (which says "can you tame it?" at the top, with a precision red C6) at the Geneva auto show. The pamphlet was mainly just pics and a short blurb about power and precision and all that. Nothing new there either. Can you tame it? seemed to be on all the European stuff regarding the C6.


Everything I have heard and read so far makes the C6 for "standard" 6 speed manual tranny, and "optional" (also read: pay more for this option) automatic transmission. I think it's about time GM got this equation right, not vice versa as with the C5. :nono If I'm not mistaken, the mechanical aspect of an automatic car makes it a bit more expensive to build, own, operate, and repair. Don't charge me more for a cheaper, simpler mechanical item. Way to go GM. :bu :Twist

Go the Chevy website, click on "Cars" and "2005 Corvette." There you will find a form to fill in requesting information. This is how I came by my brochure.
