For over 40 years I have dreamed of owning a Corvette. Finally in December 2011 my dream came true. I first saw this car online on the dealer website and knew that was the one. I made the 4 hour drive to the dealership and I was ecstatic! This car is everything I wished for. It has all of the options including head's up display, navigation and a removable roof. It drives like a dream and the seat moves into the exact position that is most comfortable and includes lumbar support. As for the performance, that is great too, of course. I have not owned a sports car in a very long time so having this much power took some getting used to. I have to say the urge to speed sometimes wins but not too often and only when passing. When you live in the Keys and drive mostly 45-55mph the opportunity doesn't present itself too often. As for mpg, I am not up to 25 and I consider that amazing as well. I can't say enough good things about this car. Everything is perfect!
After my 2004 C5 Corvette was written off after an accident, I searched CarMax.com to find a replacement. The 2006 C6 Corvette is a much more civilized, smoother, and higher performing car than even the very capable C5 Corvette. It is quieter when cruising at highway speed, accelerates faster, brakes harder, and corners harder, all while consistently returning 23 mpg in mixed city/highway driving. It is a very comfortable highway cruiser, eating up the miles quickly and comfortably. Two days after I took delivery I travelled from Columbus to Cleveland for a two day meeting and chose to drive both days rather than stay in a hotel. After the second day of meetings, I drove home via two lane country highway rather than deal with construction on the interstate and enjoyed every minute of it. The targa top gives all the benefits of a convertible without the noise and security concerns. It is the only car I have ever owned that I constantly get comments from strangers at stoplights; it is not a car for shy people.
The corvette ZO6 is an outstanding vehicle with plenty of power and catches any eye when rolling down the streets. If you're looking for class, style and power you can't beat this automobile.
