Re: Chevrolet Corvette C6

You see, you're displaying the same knowledge and preconceptions about American Muscle cars that other people usually have about Alfa Romeo without ever trying or owning one.

Don't knock it till you've tried it. You don't know what you're missing.

Re: Chevrolet Corvette C6

Its a nice car and in America I'd have one (although I also like the Mustang). However, I think I'd prefer the new Lotus Evora (?) or an Aston Vantage

Re: Chevrolet Corvette C6

The C3 Stingray was cool - I think the C6 is one of the fastest cars ever round the nurburgring, which dispels the myth they don't handle.

Re: Chevrolet Corvette C6

This one is cool. I'd love to have a go in one. I'd probably buy a second hand Ferrari F355 though if I had that much money kicking around and wanted something fast that looked cool.

Re: Chevrolet Corvette C6

These cars absolutely own the GT championships winning just about everything. They leave the Ferrari's for dead, and even the Aston's, which are their closest rival, cant touch them. They sound like thunder too, which is always a bonus in my book.

Still uncool though.

....in America, not here. You look totally uncool in one here unless its the Z06 which is so underrated it is seriously sub-zero cool.

Re: Chevrolet Corvette C6

Since we are discussing coolness here, not fuel economy, track prowess or anything else, I must say the lines on these car make it seem as if it's trying too hard.

Sorry, uncool

Re: Chevrolet Corvette C6

I had to go sub zero, I absolutely love 'em!!!

The Corvette is one of the few cars where they NEVER made an ugly one if you ask me. Mustang went crazy in the 80's and were kicking out some hideous designs, but Corvette's stayed looking cool,

The ZR1 recently did a 7.26 around the Nurburgring. That's faster than a Zonda F, Koengigigisinsesggesegggg, 911 GT2, etc etc. In a car that costs US$103,000. It's not 1973 anymore mate, these things go, stop and handle properly.

Cool.

Re: Chevrolet Corvette C6

Prefer the white, FB bodied one back in '69 that I had the opportunity to cabbie about a bit. The one with the fleur-de-lis and chequered flags on it. What a fearful dragon that was, that breathed fire on other puny motorists. PS Corvette Sting Ray, and it did resemble that Denizen of the deep, imo.:

It isn't the best looking Corvette I have seen, so sort of cool.

Re: Chevrolet Corvette C6

Uncool. There's not much very interesting about it.. just a big engine in an indifferent wrapper.

It's the classic "tadger extension" car.

Re: Chevrolet Corvette C6

It's not sub-zero, purely because of the very existance of the Z06.

but it IS cool. Better looking than it's european rivals, better performance, better value for money, rarer (in Europe at least) and more organic than it's sterile European opponants.

American Muscle cars are cool.

Closed minded ignorance and comments about mythical inability to turn corners are not.

Hmmm, never been sure about Corvettes.
Uncool, but very nearly cool?
