2005 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Coupe (6.0L 8cyl 6M)


This car will amaze you with it's
ability to track accurately and at
high "g" loads in complete comfort and
with complete confidence. The engine
torque and the gearing of the car are
very well matched to the available
traction of the tires at a given speed.
There are no sudden spikes in power,
(spikes that give the sensation of lots
of power but actually come at the
expense of a loss of overall
power),just a constant increase with
rpm. There is a "fat" or "sweet spot"
of power output from around 5000 to
6500 rpm, however. The car is quiet and
powerful. The car is very comfortable
and agile. The car is absolutely
stunning in Daytona Sunset Orange

Best Features

Stunningly beautiful looks. A "James Bond" car befitting a secret agent in need of speed to impress, or rush to, a lady, or catch an international spy. This car gives me a sense of race car capabilities. The brakes are perfect even running downhill at high speeds in mountains.

Worst Features

A supercharger or turbocharger, aftercooled, with an addional 100 hp or so. The car would then most likely be able to exceed 200 mph and meet or exceed the performance of cars costing upwards of $150,000.00. Mandate a driving school course checkout in the car as a prerequisite to buy.
