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


I first drove a Corvette in '78. I thought it was pretty awesome. Well, my new C6 has exceeded all my expectations. It has blazing speed and dazzling handling. Going through the gears has to be similar to flying an F18. It's a head turning beauty and so much fun to drive. I have to believe it's the best bang for the buck true sports car available today. When you sit in the cockpit, grab the wheel, push the ignition, put it in gear and get it rolling you know you have a superb vehicle under your control.

Best Features

Keyless ignition, touch open doors, Tremec short throw shifter, HUD, Bose Driver Info Center readouts, stereo, Onstar hands free, XM Satellite Radio, Great bucket seats, raw power and effortless constant acceleration, great "growl" around 4K rpm.

Worst Features

1 to 4 shift requirement can be clumsy and should be eliminated. Who buys this vehicle with gas mileage in mind?
