2006 Chevrolet Corvette

The 2006 Corvette is a picture of power, speed, and beauty.  The Z06 can achieve over 500 horsepower with its LS7 7.0L Gen IV V8 engine, while the standard model does not disappoint with its LS2 6.0L V8.  However, the Corvette takes care of its driver and passenger by doing more than just offering a thrilling ride; the console wraps itself around the driver, providing easy reach to its state-of-the-art technology.

While the Corvette probably will not win any awards for gas economy, the LS7 delivers surprising speed and acceleration for a reasonable gas cost: the automatic gets 18 city/25 highway, while the manual offers 19/28.

The C6 was a long-awaited release after Corvette racing won many matchups with its storied Z06.  Finally, the elegant muscle car is delivered.
