2004 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 6M)
I recently purchased a silver 2004 Z06 with 25,900 miles. The car is stock. I am amazed by the performance value of this car. The engine is incredibly flexible. The sound of the motor at 6,000 RPMs is amazing, and the car pulls like a locomotive. I am also amazed at the relative comfort of the car - the seats are very comfortable (I am over 6 feet tall) and the ride quality, though firm, is wonderful. I am surprised at how docile the car is in 'adult driving' mode - driven maturely around town, the car is eminently livable. For an enthisiast, this is a comfortable daily driver. I am amazed at the performance value with the Z06 as compared with other high-performance cars.
A street-legal race car that pulls double-duty as a grand tourer The sound of the engine at 6,000 RPMs in full-attack mode The rocket-like thrust at full throttle The stop-on-a-dime brakes that don't fade The tight and responsive steering The amazing value compared to other supercars
Gas mileage, though excellent for such a performance beast, is not terrific, but this is truly nit-picking given the amazing performance of this very affordable rocket launcher of a vehicle
