2005 Chevy SSR – For the SSR’s third model year, Chevy finally woke up and added 390 hp and 405 lb-ft of Corvette power and an optional manual transmission. Also new is retuned steering, revised exhaust routing, the addition of a dead pedal, an optional mp3-capable stereo, and more. Any buyer of a Chevrolet Roadster would be impressed about the 30 percent more horsepower and 22 percent added torque that the ’05 SSR picks up from the Corvette-sourced LS2 6.0-liter V-8. With the new Tremec six-speed manual ‘box, the 4760-lb SSR will blast to 60 mph in 5.3 seconds and through the quarter in the 13.8s, more than two seconds faster than the ’03-’04 models. The new four-speed automatic is about two-tenths slower than the stick, but still gives the acceleration you’d expect from a “Super Sport Roadster.”
The comfort of a car, the hauling capacity of a truck, and the wind blowing through your hair with the top down. Ever wish you could get all three features from one vehicle? Lucky for you, America’s premier car manufacturer brought this retro-roadster into existence back in 2003 and a few low mile examples can still be found today. This 2005 Slingshot Yellow SSR is from the first year where the real improvements were released by Chevrolet. It has been garage kept, well maintained, and still looks showroom new. As indicated by the very low (under 20k) miles you can see this SSR was only driven lightly on sunny afternoons. A history summary shows this beautiful SSR to be a 3 owner vehicle and has spent most of its life in TX. We’ve inspected the vehicle and everything works like it should. If you choose to fly in and drive this Chevy home, we think you could do so with zero worries.
