2009 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Coupe (6.2L 8cyl 6M)
Bought my 09 Cyber Gray coupe three weeks ago. Equipped with 3LT, Z51, NPP, 6 sp, 2 tone ebony/titanium interior and forged polished wheels - this car is very fast and refined compared to my C5 ZO6. Fantastic engine -torque like a train and always just a toe tap away. Clutch is very smooth and shifter is much more refined. Interior is more polished than past generations. Car is very quiet and smooth inside without tire rumble. In fact, I could stand to hear that beautiful exhaust of the NPP all the time rather than just above 3500rpm (where is that fuse?). Absolutely a great ride and a best buy compared to the other vehicles in its class.
Lights - the HIDs are fantastic; the manual shifter is very slick. The Cyber Gray is fantastic in person. The engine/power is seamless. Targa top. Much improved interior - very classy. The Z51 package handles very well without a punishing ride
The NPP Dual mode exhaust sounds great but you've got to rev the engine to get there. Perhaps Chevy should allow driver to select the sound via the "competition mode" switch.
