    Performance Review Of The C6 Corvette — Sleek design and awesome performance. 1/4 mile time 12.7 seconds and 0 to 60mph in 4.4 seconds. With 405 hp, 400lb/ft of torque and 19/29 mpg...not a lot of cars under 100k can out run it. For a V8 6.0 liter, 29 mpg on the freeway is incredible. The Lexus GS400 hybrid only gets 25mpg on the freeway...how odd is that?! For a car around 50k that's in the same league as Porsche and Ferrari's...its one of the best bang for your bucks in terms of performance.

    Pros: I like the design, power and torque. Very smooth acceleration, next thing you know you're doing 120mph.

    Cons: Minor electrical problems and too much torque...tired can't grip on the launch off, have to take off slowly at first.

    2005 Chevrolet Corvette Z51 -modified — I love it! Great chassis, amazing engine, great ergonomics, good stereo; I couldn't be more pleased with such a car. 25 additional thousand dollars in well spent mods' and you have a very able car. One that mixes it up with many of the worlds top Supercars. From a racing standpoint it's as simple as that.

    Pros:      LS2 engine- uses same bolt patterns of LS1 and LS6 etc.     Near 50/50 weight distribution and suspension geometry- neutral in corners depending on front/rear tire selection.     Seating- 6 axis bucket seats hold you quite well; with adjustments to suit your figure.

    Cons:      Laminate issues- roof and b-pillar are glued to a frame.      Leather Shift Knob- very slippery with wet hands.     Leaf Springs!?- Nonetheless they get the job done very well.

    2005 Corvette — I loved driving the car the fit and finish is perfect. I do have a few complaints about the car though. The Cost of maintenance is too high. Things were constantly breaking and they are not cheep to replace. My only other performance complaint is the clutch. It was spongy and very inconsistant. I ended up selling it because of all the problems I was having on it but I think that it is safe to say that I would love to own another one. I would just never buy another used one.

    Pros: Power on demand

    Cons: clutch and constant maintance issue.

    Like Everything About It — Its very fast - 0-60 in about 4 sec, little under the standard as I added Corsa Exhausts and cold air induction. Longest I have ever owned a car.

    Pros: Great fun to drive

    Cons: Police give you a ticket for doing donuts on the main road - it was an accident!

    Utterly Magnificient! The Best 'till The Gt-r Arrived. — The truck you see behind me and the Corvette is the one that brought to this truly wonderful day 5 supercars. First, let's start with Miss Kentucky, the Vette. This C6 had 404hp (440 for the 2008 model) and a 6-speed manual gearbox that was quite manly, but it was manageable, so I actually liked it ... just like the whole car, to be honnest from the beginning. It looks superb, the V8 sounds great, and on the track, it was able to follow the Ferrari and the Lamborghini, leaving the Aston and the Porsche in its dust! Not bad for a $US 50,000 car! On the road, French and bumpy roads should I add, everything was perfect ... till we went over the speed limit (there was a Toyota LandCruiser in front of us to check that the police wasn't here). Then, the magnetic suspensions didn't seem to bother anymore of confort and I found myself a couple of times driving like an Englishman, on the wrong side of the road! Apart from that, it was fantastic! I loved the Targa roof, easy to store in the trunk, I loved the Heads-up Display, like on a fighter jet, and I loved the performance. We were not nice with these cars, but the Corvette just didn't mind. The brakes were red, a little bit damaged, but it kept on braking and braking, as good as the others (well, much better than the V8 Vantage, that's for sure)! The only other drawback is the stability control (ESP for Bosch, Active Handling for GM) ... it worked on the road... thank God! But DO NOT, DO NOT turn it off! If you want to avoid crashing at least, because somehow, without this electronic aid, the back feels twitchy at the limit, and no matter how hard I like to train, I'm not a professional racing driver, so I spun, again and again! When you do slide, it's wonderful, but on the road, especially on a slippery one, just let the ESP on! Anyway, great car and really well priced!

    Pros: It's wonderful to look at, to drive (whether for cruising or chasing a Ferrari on a track), it's a Targa (so you can enjoy the open air feeling) and it's not that expensive.

    Cons: Doesn't have 4-wheel drive, so unless you're a drifting God, keep the ESP on! And the V8 does drink ...

    Best Bang For The Buck, Period. — With just "Bolt-Ons*", the car went from very fast to wickedly fast. The exhaust and engine noise is overwhelming sometimes. Interior is very comfortable for this kind of car. The navigation and on board display is too complicated to use at first, but after almost 3 years of ownership I think I finally figured it out. Steering feedback is good, but could be better. Brakes are fine for street and minor track use, but they do start to fade after heavy track usage. The only real dislike for this car: must shift to reverse inorder to shut off, otherwise the car's electrical system will not shut down completely = dead battery. *Vararam, Corsa 3.5", 4:10s, AR stainless headers, 160 thermostat & Tune @ECS.

    Pros: Fast (always hunting for 911s & Vipers)

    Cons: You better have good clutch & throttle control or else, NO TRACTION!

    Great Value And Performance! — Driving this car is an experience like none other. It has the aggressive stance and beautiful lines, yet it allows the driver to choose whether to compete at the track or just leisurely cruise on sunny days. This car handles both scenarios with ease. The acceleration is exhilarating. And even with the level of power you get with this car you can also get great (26 mpg) gas mileage!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: This car is a beauty to behold. It has excellent lines and it is easily recognizable as a Corvette, the American icon.

    Cons: Although it has reasonable cargo space it in not meant to be a family car, of course, since it only has two seats.
