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?

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.

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.

Pros: 505 HP
198 MPH
'Nuff said.

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

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: Acceleration, Looks, Price, Sound, Performance.

Cons: Cheap interior, flimsy body work, rattles from targa top, steering.

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.

Pros: 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

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.

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.

Damn This Car Is Awesome!!! — The car is an all around performer. However, I do have one complaint. The seats are entirely to soft and lack proper bolstering. Also, they could be more rigid. Other than that, the car is an engineering marvel!! Sleek, sexy, and blindingly fast!! There are not enough good things to say about this car!

Owner for 2 years, 0 months

Miles Driven per Year:1,000

Pros: Fast, Fast, Fast

Cons: seats need more support

Rolling Thunder. — Basic ZO-6 was based on C6-R race car, winner of 24 Hours of Le Mans. Stock version has 512 horse power (505 american horses). By changing of whole exhaust system, intake system and some electronic mods I managed to get 600 break horse power. This is a race car on the road... Dry sump, engine and gear-box are separated, G-force indicator, radiator for gear-box and rear axle. etc. You can drive a Ferrari or Lambo for 3 hours may be, but then you will have to stop to cool the brakes down, gear-box, etc. This one, you can drive 24 hours. May be it is not that nice like a Ferrari Enzo or Lamborghini Superlegera but the performance is dramatic !!!

Pros: Engine with no limit of power, sound, endurance, reliable, real race car,
cheap.

Cons: Gear-box too long, interior.

Needs More Power. — I understand that this is the most powerful Corvette yet, but it still lacks what the European companies have... Quality of product. The Corvette is lacking the grunt that a Lamborghini Gallardo, or an Audi R8 has. The quality reflects in the price as well. The R8 and the Gallardo are built by hand and to last. I've seen videos of the Corvette's roof coming off on the highway. Another reason why the Corvette will never come close to what a REAL car is worth. GM is always cutting corners to save a buck, and it shows.
