Chevrolet Corvette 2006 Overview

The Chevrolet Corvette C6 is the most capable Corvette ever. The LS2 V8 powerplant has grown to 6 litres for 2005, with power and torque that is killer at the track and useable in regular driving. The standard tranny is the Tremec T56 six-speed manual gearbox, while an outdated four-speed automatic is optional. Large 18-inch wheels at the front and 19-inch at the rear and exposed headlamps with fixed Xenon High-Intensity Discharge lamps now define the Corvette. Available as a hatchback coupe with a lift-off roof panel or as a convertible with a fabric soft-top and heated glass rear window, while a power top is also available. The new race-bred Corvette Z06 packs a massive 7.0-litre V8 engine, and comes in coupe form only and offers performance that rivals Ferrari. Even though its dimensions have shrunk, the C6 has as much room inside as the C5. The only letdown is an interior that could easily have been in the Aveo, although GM does try to make up for it with gadgets such as keyless start and a heads-up display. We'd say America's favourite sports car is now as good as anything from Italy.
