Corvette Z06 — Performance - Simply said.... PERFECT! Great Speed/Acceleration ratio. Build Quality - Great. After a little bump with a small pole it didn't damage the car as bad as I thought. Appearance - Just look at the car. BEAUTIFUL! Cost - Too much I'm afraid. But my friend has one so I am happy that I can drive it ^^ Fun Factor - Chick magnet... Need I say more?

Pros: Everything

Cons: Nothing.... maybe the price

Gumball Gets Another Corvette Z06!!! — What can I say? It's an amazing car, I raced it at Donnington Park with a few friends in the summer and it was amazing. Can't wait until August 2009, I'll be driving the same car from 'Coast to Coast' in America in the Gumball Rally 3000 2009. Only two drawbacks, the interior plastics sound very cheap and hollow and it's only available in left-hand drive (Which is a good case when i'm in America, but extremly difficult to drive on the U.K's streets.)

Pros: 505 Raging American Horses and the ride is quite comfortable at 185mph (300kph)

Cons: only available in left-hand drive and the cheap interior.

After Much Needed Tweeks, I Can Actually Say I Like It A Lot —

Alright I was not really impressed with the C6 when it cam out, so how in the world can I like this years model even though it is still a C6. Simple, much needed tweaks, the steering feels less artificial, and finally it has an interior that PETA would scream over, but for all I car those vegans can go stuff themselves. The exhaust bellows at low RPMs, and Snarls at the Higher RPMs, it just sounds great. Secondly I liked this one better because it had a real 6-speed manual, not a half-assed automatic with thoughtful paddles. You just can’t help but hold the throttle down for longer than 8 seconds, but by then even spacious suburban boulevards get very small very quickly. This is where the breaks do their magic. So what if it only has 400 hp, yes I know the Z06, and ZR1 have more power, but I am convinced that I can still terrify myself in the base model, considering the more professional car journalist from Car and Driver and Road and track claim that the corvette has a tendency to have the tail slide out from behind you. Even if I am a better driver than the average Californian motorist, by professional race driver standards, I am still an amateur. Before I step into a ZR1, I probably should learn how to pull a car out of a spin while doing north of 100mph. One thing I live the most is the fact that the corvette can get about 30 mpg on the freeway, so lets do a little math here, this car has 400 hp and gets 30 mpg, while a less fun to drive and look at Prius gets at best 48 mpg on an anemic, that is if you drive it in a way that makes most grandma’s look like Burt Reynolds in a Trans Am. The electric engine and gas moped engine only manage to make a pitiful 110 hp. The Corvette and Prius do not have that big of a weight difference either, so I guess you could say that the corvette is more efficient than the Prius, What? Did I just Say that? One last thing that I liked about this Vette was the fact that it still uses a cloth top. Now I know about all the great advantages of a retractable hard top, I know that they allow for a stronger body, and a quieter cabin, but frankly, I don’t like the way most of them look. I’m sure that this car will not end up being the most reliable, cost effective car. But these cars are not aimed at those who drive Toyota Corollas, Hyundai’s, KIAs, and the like. Those cars are just too sensible and boring. Cars like the Corvette are built for those who still have that little kid inside them, and for those who actually like cars. Corvettes are not for those who make their decision on buying a car based on what consumer reports say and they are not for those who what to get from point A to point B. If you decide to buy a Corvette, make me proud and occasionally listen to your antisocial personality and bury your right foot and hold it there for a while. Those who drive cars like these slowly deserve to have them stolen.

Pros: Acceleration, Braking, Looks, Lots of Leather, Exhaust, and a roadster that is not ashamed to sport a soft top

Cons: Still flimsy in some areas, why can’t I open the door while the car is running?

Corvette Z06 — I love this car...... It looks great, goes like stink, can pull 1.8G in a corner, is faster and handles better than most production Ferraris, Lamborghinis and Porches and comes in at one third the price of the nearest equivalent Ferrari.... with the added bonus that people love the Corvette. I get so many comments and people taking pictures.... Not many Ferrari or Lambo drivers get that! Its also 1 of only 20 Z06s on the road in the UK... exclusivity or what!

Pros: This car is superb

Cons: None

Z06 'vette — 505 Hp is awsome, a little crazy for a car that weighs like 505 pounds though. Very sporty and responsive. tons of creature comforts but not too practical for a place like Edmonton. Feels like I'm sitting on the pavement. I would get in way too much trouble owning this car - $$$

Pros: Handling

Cons: Pricey

The Most Potent Z To Date — I do not technically own this car, but I have it in my possesion at my house while my parents are living in taipei, taiwan. the performance is amazing, as an example, at full throttle the tires loose traction between 6000-7000rpm and catch after the shift into 2nd. build quality is perfect so far it has only 1700 miles. Cost of ownership is alittle much, The tires are around $1000 for the front, you watch the fuel gauge drop from f to e and the brakes cost an average of $2500-$3000. the appearance is similar to the late C3 corvettes. You need to drive the car to realize how fun it really is.

Pros: Race car built for the street

Cons: Know what your getting into with this car

07 Switched Out For An 08....better Interior. — FAST!!! Just swapped out of a Silver 07 for the Red 08. Great everyday supercar that can compete with some of todays top Italian and German sportscars. They have improved the interior significantly which was a big problem for past Vettes. Only upgrade I would make is an exhaust so you can really hear the power.

Pros: Great handling and power.

Cons: Gas.........

2008 Jetstream Blue Corvette Z06 — Performance for the price, there is no equal. It'll run circles around the exotics for a fraction of the price. Build quality is pretty decent, however my former 07 C6 was built better than my current 08 Z06.

Pros: Light weight, 505 hp with a warranty, sexy, great fuel mileage (30+
highway).

Cons: Expensive, having to deal with GM.
