2006 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Convertible (6.0L 8cyl 6M)
I've owned Ferrari and Porsche in the past, sort of turned my nose up at a Corvette, however the C6 rendition is quite a car! The interior isn't as good as it should be, but the price vs. performance is astonishing. The paddle shifting 6 speed auto is a blast. Quiet until you romp on the throttle, then turns into a bellowing beast. Handling is excellent, ride is compliant, seats will probably fit everyone well, acceleration is impressive, but it will "putter" around town like any other car. I'm impressed.
6 speed auto, Heads up display, POWER!
At this price I think it would be hard to get much more value for your bucks.
