Vette — Car is very fun to drive with the top on or off. It is a 6 speed manual and I just love the acceleration. It handles just great. Build quality is good no repairs so far and no squeaks or rattles. Car gets great mileage on the highway and probably doesn't do to bad in the city if driven easy.

No.does Not Work On Everyday Basis. — incredible accelerarion from the 7 litre engine in the zo6.different from the 5litre corvettes from previous years. accelerates to 1oo km/h in first gear.by third gear i will be doind 200 km/h.this is a stock zo6.Has potencial to beat and out shine ferraris & other super cars. However amazing it may be ,it only works on a track.it gets all twitchy on the road. the steerings heavy,ridicuous plastic interior,heavy clutch,terrible in rainy wheather.

2006 Vette — Excellent car... best vette to date in my opinion. Real tight, quick & nimble. Great on gas too... when not on the throttle. B&B exhaust are quite loud, but do they ever sound good car is lowered White is turning out to be easy to wash... compared to black! cheers

One Of The Most Fun Cars Ever — great acceleration. removable hard top. Feels like 100mph at 70 with top off. Great fuel economy too!

Pros

Where do I start??  The performance, the looks, the sound, the feel.  Everything you buy a sports car for.  I like the transparent roof and the fact that it is removable.  I didin't think I would like the bling of the chromed wheels, but they've grown on me.

Cons

Because of the low-slung proportions and seating position, the car feels longer and wider than it actually is.  It's actually only an inch or two longer than a Porsche Cayman S. (Really!)  My previous C5 got a lot better gas mileage, but it did not have the free flowing intake/exhaust that this one has nor the 6sp manumatic transmission.

Sex On Wheels — I love this car. Every time I am in the market for another sports car (which is every time I wreck the previous one), I cross shop those at the same performance level and those at the same price point....and twice now, I've ended up at the Corvette. At the same price point, the BMW M Coupe and Porsche Cayman S are very, VERY compelling...but ultimatley fall short. So do lower priced sports cars, such as the Mazda RX8 and the Nissan 350Z. At the same performance level, the Corvette is priced 1/3rd less and still matches or outperforms it's competitors from Porsche, BMW, et al. Plus, its gorgeous. What's not to love?

2006 Chevrolet Corvette — 0-60 in 5.4 seconds, 4.2 if you whomp the gas. 6-cylinder, 5 speed manual transmission. Black convertible top, nice wheel base, low to the ground aerodynamic, and fast

It drives like a rollercoaster due to the closeness to the ground. You will definitely feel this ride more so than others.

Probably One Of The Best Solid Road-worthy Cars Around. — In terms of performance, this beast is top of the line. Not many street drivable cars compare with the 2006 C6 Z06. Brakes, acceleration, and handling are well above the norm. And for those times when you want to show the guy next to you at the red light what a real car looks like, you can pop the vehicle into competition mode. Doing so enables a 1st - 4th gear jump, giving you less drag time trying to shift gears.

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.

The torque, the acceleration, and the overall drivability of the car

Cons

Interior was lacking a little and steering could be a little more precise

To Go This Fast In Any Other Car Would Cost You At Least Double The Base Of This — People will criticize the interior of the Corvette but if you compare to a Porsche without a large leather package and over $10,000 worth of options I would say it's pretty comparable. That aside, the acceleration in this car is the fastest I have experienced. The transmission is a little clunky during around-town driving, but when you rev it past 3,000 rpm's and dump the clutch it's smooth and deliberate. The exhaust note is a nice combination of American muscle growl with a hint of European mechanical wine from the engine. The later-G gauge is fun to play with on back roads to see how many your pulling. Overall just a wonderful sports car that can run with the best from Europe at half the price.
