2006 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Convertible (6.0L 8cyl 6M)
Owned a 2000 C5 and the upgrade in almost every respect on the C6 is very apparent. It is amazing how quiet and relatively comfortable the car has become. The C5 seems almost primitive in comparison and build quality is significantly improved. Top is tight with no wind noise or moisture leakage. No rattles in a convertible or noticeable flex in bumps and curves so structural rigidity must be good.
6 speed transmission. Improved NAV and audio system. Great combination of handling and performance with comfort and economical use. Luggage capacity.
Interior remains a little subpar compared with the BMW 3 series and others at this price point. (I also had a 2002 M3 convertible) Option prices for things lkie wheels are high. Difficult to find without OnStar.
