Fifty thousand? I got mine for $45k out the door, with the Z51 option, track wheels, and dual mode exhaust. I've had mine for a year and think it's awesome

430 hp? 6.2? this engine isn't even breathing heavy. one can get an extra 100 hp with a warm cam, ported throttle body, better air flow and an aftermarket exhaust very inexpensive actually. the torque explosive

@ BumRush, yes, definately black color suits that car. :)

@ PhantomPorsche, you can add the Z51 package. It definately improves the car.

BumRush  9y ago

now what kinda language is that for a 12 year 427..lol and yes its quite a bargain supercar, i mean how many $50,000 cars can hit 190mph?? it might be better in a nice black though!!

wow the normal 6.0L corvette c6 05-07 with exposed headlights was really good and was availible with a z51 handalling package and you can get as a convertable.but know they updated the c6 generation corvette to a 6.2L 08 c6 thats more fuel efficiet and more user friendly and know i have heard somewhere you can get one paddle shifts the c6 6.2L 08 vette model also comes with a z51 handalling package and you can get one as a convertable the corvette c6 6.2L 08 still costs around 50000USD i think this new 08 6.2 vette can compete withn the new updated porsche 911 997 carresra s facelift 09 teir both practical and very user friendly.

from what i have heard the corvette c6 6.2 gm says it is fuel effient for a 6.2L Ls3 v8 and does 26mpg on the highway and somwhere around 15mpg on normal driving

Andrew taylor  9y ago

the normalo basre corvette c6 6.2 is eqivilent to the porsche 911 997 carrera (997facelift) both will get you from 0-60mph in the low 4secs and will almost top 190mph and they can lap the nurburgring in just under 8mins then again if you bought a corvette c6 6.2 with a z51 handling package it would match the porsche 911 997 carrera s performance there both in a closeley similer price range the corvette c6 6.2 costs 50 000 usd and the porsche 911 997 carrera would cost somewher round 75 000 usd

0-100 is done in 4.1 seconds. It's the same time with the C6 Z51

i dont see the problem with the every day road use of a zo6, its fine with me. dont know bout the zr1 thoug but i have herd it has a much better ride than a zo6.


User avatar

roberto andres  9y ago

the corvette z06 and corvette zr1 are road legal but there only designed for track use i prefer the zr1 and the z06 but i would prefer to have a normal coupe model of the corvette c6 6.2 because it would be more user friendly and more fuel eficient and it only coasts some wher around 50 000 USD
