Not A Car for Everyone

2006 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 2dr Coupe (7.0L 8cyl 6M)
This is not a car for everyone and it was not intended to be. This is a car for car enthusiasts who not only tolerate a firm ride and aggressive exhaust but demand it. I hear of buyers who want to quiet the car and make it more comfortable to drive. Give me a break. Why did you buy this car in the first place? After GM spent millions making the car lighter these buyers add sound deadening material. If your not used to driving high performance cars don't buy this car or be prepared to learn since traction can be difficult to come by even with traction control on. Also, you guys that have to ride around in plush leather living room furniture buy a Maserati.
505 hp/470 ft. lbs of torque 3.7 secs. 0 to 60 mph 198 mph top speed Sub 12 sec. quarter mile 1.04g lateral-grip rating. 16/26 mpg Blows away Ferrari F430 at 1/3 the cost.
We need more of what its got: Louder exhaust. Stiffer suspension. More hp and ft. lbs.
