Pros

Fastest thing on the road. Hot looks and styling. Great gas mileage. Unbelievable cornering capability. Weight distribution is exceptional. Can be a daily driver if you want.

Cons

It is definitely not family friendly.

Literally A Supercar At A Modest Price — The Corvette Z06 is, without a doubt, the most fun car to drive I have ever driven, and I have driven many different kinds of sports cars. The 7.0L engine puts out massive amounts of torque and power making it a blast stoplight to stoplight. Additionally, the handling and cornering capability are second to none. What is really hard to believe is the fact that this car can be used as a daily driver and doesn't need a pit crew to keep it running. I have never had a single problem with the car and have loved every moment driving it.

Don't Forget To Wave To Other Corvette Drivers. — Flashy and fast is the Game that the 2006 Corvette plays. This car like those that came before follows the fast car at a reasonable price. With a 6.0 400 hp V8 that replaces the 5.7 350 hp V8, the Corvette stays relevant in the performance car market. Measuring 0-60 is no longer relevant, it is better to measure 0-100 instead. Although I never got the liberty to take this car on a twisty mountain road, it still is satisfying to drive as long as your not in traffic or have the misfortune of following a cop. The Car I drove was fitted with the 6 speed Automatic with paddle shifters. While the Slush box is able to keep the acceleration close to that of the 6 speed manual, the paddle shifters are not as quick at shifting as a standard manual transmission. This corvette was fitted with Borla exhaust and it is guaranteed to turn heads when you stomp on the throttle. Like all corvettes, the bargain price creates some compromises. Although the interior is improved from the C5, it still is not fit for a car that cost about $55,000. The seats are still terrible, and when pinned in the seat due to acceleration, you can feel the framework behind the cheep padding. The steering also feels to synthetic and makes you feel sort of isolated from the road, but no worries Corvette lovers, because I believe they have addressed this in the 08’ model. While the Composite body saves weight, the rear bumper feels, well… flimsy. And when you take the car to the dealer because the targa top is rattling, pray that they don’t back the car into a Suburban. There is certain Corvette educate that one must follow when driving, always wave to other drivers of Corvettes. Secondly, never drive the Corvette like you are driving a Cadillac, You are supposed to drive this car as if your 21. The owner of the corvette I drove is 87, and he still drives it like he is 21, fortunately it has not been impounded…Yet.

Pros

Fast, sleek, handling, reliability

Cons

It isn't cheap to modify or buy, there is a lot of plastic, fiberglass isn't the easiest stuff to repair when chipped.

It Just Keeps Going And Going — This is my fastest ride to date and given the way oil prices are going it may be the last of its kind. It has more power and torque than I know what to do with, can corner like its on rails, and a liberal application of the right pedal makes all but the baddest cars on the road become distant blips in the mirror. The car looks great and drives great, I only wish I could learn to harness the full potential of all those ponies.

Yep — There is not much to day, If you want to knock the crap out of a F430 and not spend more than 230 thousand dollars. The zo6 is the way to go. Best car I have ever owned, I'm even including the ones that had back seats

Bad Ass C-6 — I have been a Corvette for over 35 years. I've owned most all of the different body styles. This is my first C6 Corvette I This stock C6 is much faster than any of my previous Corvettes. The paddle shifter is an awesome option..

Pure Fun — I miss this car dearly, and I am definitely looking for another one. The raw power and handling is unequaled as compared to other sports cars I have driven, and for the price, it is a huge bargain when you factor in the capabilities.

C6 Corvette From A 26 Year Old Point Of View — I have owned three c6 corvettes ranging from a 2006 manual, 2006 auto and 2007 auto both with paddle shifters. Cool design with plenty of power and great MPG. The c6 corvette are reliable cars at a great price. I am looking forward to the c7.

Every Boys Dream — I searched high and low for this car, traveled from the mid west to Georgia to look at it. The person that owned it before me had obviously taken great care of it, as he was a car guy, and his garage showed it. Fell in love at first sight.
