Phenomenal ride. I have also dreamed of a Vette all my life alone with the posters in the forums. It definitely lives up to the hype. For a little more dough than a Trans Am or Mustang, it is so much better.
Targa top, not enough cars available like this. So much better than a convertible.
This is my 3rd Vett, they keep getting better,
fantastic power, great ride and unbelievable gas
mileage for a car with this amount of power. No
mechanical problems to date. Lots of after market
performance parts available. Cost of service is very
Headsup display,sheer brute power. Gas mileage,
have got just over 30 MPG on the highway. Runs
great on low grade gas, during these times of high
Behind the seat storage pocket for maps etc . More
cup holders and deeper. Deeper center console.
Exhaust note to tame. Better/softer leather so
seats/interior. Elimination of skip shift feature.
Wider tires to give a more agressive look.
Interesting thing is that I never
thought I'd own a Corvette, not on my
radar. However, when looking to
replace a daily driver it turned out to
have major advantage, I fit. At 6'3"
it is surprising how many cars I can't
either get into or sit in comfortably,
notably the XK8. The C5 at least in
it's later years is a bullet proof
touring dream. Loads of room, great
mileage on the highway with the 6 sp
and my wife noted how comfortable it
was on it trip home, 1350 miles to get
back to CA where none of the dealers
would go below MSRP at the time.
Performance is amazing, leading to
several driving classes. Heads up
display once you get a day with it is
truly much safer than looking down to
dash area. Stability Control or Active
Handling is a must in a new car if you
want active safety.
As noted by others, 2nd cup holder in
the C6 means GM is listening. 400 HP
will be nice in the future, too.
