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!
I have wanted this car since I was 10 years old finally got the one I wanted, yellow convertible with black interior and top. It is just what I expected all these years: the power, the handling, and the looks. I drive it year round in New England and find it handles fine in rain or snow, with the proper handling and traction control off. How can you beat 26 mpg with the 6 speed manual and 400 horsepower.
The new C7 Stingray is several cuts above the C6. The interior, technology and fit and finish were a big surprise. The comfort in the new seats provides a very comfortable ride. 4 different suspension settings makes for a nice smooth driving experience ! !! 25 miles a gallon is great mileage for 460 HP!!! Love my Vette!!
