Comfort and Joy
By RHart on
2005 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Coupe (6.0L 8cyl 6M)
The Corvette design team has outdone
themselves again! This machine is a
technological marvel and work of art.
Sitting inside my C6 Z51 6-Spd beast
makes me feel like a king. This is my
second 'vette, the first was a 2000 C5
Z51 6-Spd. The power is considerably
stronger, partly due to the lower bottom
gears for off-the-line torque. I find I
need to re-learn accelerator control to
keep the wheels from breaking free in
both 1st and 2nd. The engine remains
quiet until pouring on the power and
then exhibits a more refined growl than
the C5. The car is much quieter, they
solved the window wind noise problem at
highway speeds. Ran out of words so
suffice it to say: Corvette Rules!
2. Beauty (exterior design)
3. Comfort (seats, quiet)
4. Solid as a rock
5. No Keys Needed, just FOB in your
pocket (takes time to get used to, real
6. XM Radio and Serious Bose Sound System.
7. Did I say POWER?
Could use better engine growl, more
sports car resonance, may have to go for
aftermarket exhaust system. For
off-the-line acceleration, has the power
but needs more weight on rear wheels.
