@br2
I got the V used with low miles for a little under 50k. Dealer said he could have sold it numerous times if it was an auto but you'd be amazed how many people in the u.s can't drive a manual.

When I first got it I was dead set on not doing any engines mods but you know how that goes. Once I joined the forums and saw how much more power I could have with a pulley swap and remap I couldn't help myself.

With a family I figured the caddy was my best bet at performance and room for the kid/dog. Previously I had a evo but the luster of the evo faded pretty quickly. Numerous problems with it... no issues with the caddy yet!

@ 196ss Yeah, I also like the idea of a less expensive V-8 power sports-coupe as well. Maybe something like the 130R or Tru140S concepts they had a little while back...

Heck, if they're small/light enough you could just put Chevy's 323hp 3.6LV6 in them, price them near the BRZ/FRS, they'd sell like hotcakes! :)

May be it's sounds strange, but I'd like to see a cheaper version of this car: 5-5,5 l V8, about 400 hp. With manual and all Z51 goodies it would be very fun car.

To be honest, I would like to see one of these for once as opposed to the many 458s, GTRs, mclarens, lambos. They are too cliche.

I actually just raced a C7Stingray the other day...
Well when I say race, it was more like, admiring the new taillights going farther and farther away accompanied by that glorious push-rod V8 soundtrack.... :)

Id like to get a white one with a matching white interior and black trim, There 70k fully loaded over here, Which is still an incredible bargain, They would be about 35k at US prices here. If they were, Nobody could say no to them.

How much was your V when you got it? Was that new or used?

I tried to get a dealer to let me test drive one but everyone that comes in is sold. I got super lucky and parked next to one at a store. When I came out the owner was checking out my CTS-V. He got to drive my caddy and I drove his stingray.

Unsure if I will go new or used route. Just dont want the first year. There is sure to be a few glitches that will work themselves out by the second year. I love the looks of the Z06 but probably couldnt afford it so I'd just dress up a base stingray. Dark red if its a option and with all the curves of the car I would have a friend with a body shop put down some pearl to highlight the lines of the car. I love dark pearl red.

Pics are one thing but seeing these in person is amazing. GM has really outdone themselves with these.

Planing on new or used? Good either way, wat color? You could also opt for a new Mustang, a Hellcat, or a C6 ZO6, or M4 depending on your price range that is, C7 will still be fairly new in car terms, so their might not be a sufficient price drop, depending on where you get it from and deals ur able to get, either way it's money well spent

Finally got to drive one of these and I am completely sold. By far the most impressive car Ive ever driven.. and I've driven a lot of cars!

Two more years and my son will be out of the house. My 4 door caddy is going by by and a C7 is taking its place.

I'm not opposed to overdrive gears, either, though I'd rather there be just one. They're great for cruising, and let's be real here, barring something like the N'Ring, what racetrack would allow you to run up to 7th/8th gear anyway? On the vast majority of tracks around the world, a Corvette would likely never go beyond 3rd gear. The only time it would matter is a V-max run, and who really does that in stock cars anyway? Even in something like the Texas Mile, the highest gear you'd reach is 5th, so the overdrives wouldn't matter there either.

What I'm opposed to piling on weight where it doesn't need to be. Safety regulations and the demand for interiors with every possible creature comfort are already turning cars into porkers, and all this fuel-saving stuff is just making it worse.

I'm also don't mind overdrive, it is very good thing, when you have a fast sports car which can save fuel on highway. It seems strange to me that there are two overdrive gears, especially with such similar gear ratios. For example driving on the highway at 90 kph on 7-th gear you have 1150 rpm, and on the 6-th gear āā‚¬ā€œ 1350 rpm. What is the difference? 1 Nm and 0,001 mpg? I think nobody will never use 6-th gear, it just make this wonderful car heavier and more expensive.

Neither am i, But when there used in performance cars of this caliber i am, Again, Performance car, Not a car associated with people who give 2 shites if there car gets 40mpg. Maybe if they wanted to do a I6 version of the car sure, But not ones with this level of performance.

I'm not necessarily opposed to overdrive gears, but what I am opposed to is the EPA creating stupid regulations that require overdrive gears...

Short gearing on the highway can also be kinda loud for a street car. My Spyder runs over 4000 rpm at typical highway speeds with its stock 5 speed manual and 4.31 rear. I am sure it hurts fuel economy, and engine longevity. It is only a 1.8 liter in a lightweight (under 2200 lbs) sports car though, so I still get 35 mpg on the highway. :)

@saxy and Piorun; I agree with both of you, the tall overdrive really is appreciated on long highway trips. I have owned two Corvettes: a 1995 convertible with automatic and 2.73 rear end; and a 2002 convertible with six manual with 3.42 rear end. The 1995 got a consistent 27 miles per gallon on the highway, and the 2002 got 30 mpg. I found the fuel economy very useful. Conversely, I have found Mustang GT fuel economy to be disappointing: my 2011 six speed manual with 3.73 rear got 23 mpg; and the 1994 with automatic and 3.27 rear gets 21 mpg. That kind of difference really adds up on long trips.

I actually like this tall last mpg-gear. Especially if its the 7th
In old manuals the 5th tall gear would be a disaster in the sport car.

In other hand, look on cars like EVO, and 5 close ratio gears. Ok its fun and sporty, but why You have to rev engine to red line If You want to cruise on highway?

Its long life the engine, and its soo cool in big torquy V8 to use that low rpm power, which You would not have in turbo 2.0

Its good feature in a ROAD car.
In full track oriented monester - ok just make close racing ratio with the last gear for top speed.
But the base Stingray isnt so much track oriented. Maybe Z06 will be diffrent.

99+% of vette drivers won't need 6k rpm on top gear. but 99+% of vette drivers would benefit from a tall overdrive gear. I don't really see what's the arguing about. If you're gonna go full out hardcore performance, take the passenger seat out, radios, speakers, air con, carpets, and lose weight yourself before getting into the drivers seat.
It's just not neccesary to be so hardcore unless you are actually racing on a track against serious drivers against the clock.

@BR2
No arguments here, it is pretty stupid. Though I will say that I like being able to cruise around and now have to stop at a gas station every hour. But really, if you can afford to blow $50k+ on a sports car in the first place, you can afford to feed the thing.

Uh...Sorry to be the barer of bad news, but...: http://gmauthority.com/blog/2014/01/the-eight-speed-transmission-in-the-2015-corvette-z06-shifts-faster-than-a-dual-clutch/#ixzz2uTFDchUP

7th and 8th gear in the 8spd will be overdrives. And the Z06 will apparently still have Eco/V4 mode(so much for limited production sparing it from regulations). Bunch of bullshite if you ask me. I've got nothing against V4 mode; it only activates in Eco mode, which my car will never see. But the hardware associated with it adds weight in the worst place possible: up front. Yeah, it's "only" about 30lbs+/-(going by Stingray figures), but that's 30lbs on top of an engine that would already be significantly heavier due to the supercharger and associated hardware, and reinforced components. All told, even with steps taken to make it lighter, the LT4 is likely going to weigh as much as the LS9, which was around 530lbs(again, because of the supercharger and strengthened parts), and it's because of crap no one who would buy the car wants. I may not be against better fuel economy, but I am against adding weight for no reason, especially on a car that's being advertised as "the most track-capable Corvette ever".

Still though, Whats the point of a "Performance" car, If your just gonna limt its performance? Its Like the German 155Mph bullshite, That has been getting better, With Audi Quasi limiting there cars from 155 to 174(Still fkn stupid) and Bmw and MB doing the same, But still. I personally think Overdrive gears should only be in economy cars and cars like a Rolls Royce designed for comfort and getting good MPG, Hopefully one day this will change, Or hell it ma change in the 8L90 the ZO6 is getting, Im extremely curious how those gears are gonna be played out, Will they FINALLY gear a Vette with great ratios? Or will ther be 3...Overdrive Economy gears?(Which would be even more insane in a Stingray ZO6)...
