Spectacular supercar performance with a credit crunch price tag. Well, sort of – a shade under £62,000 anyway.
For that you get the most muscular Corvette to be had in Europe, a 7-litre V8 beast that will hurtle from standstill to 62mph in 3.9 seconds and scorch to a foot-to-the-floor maximum of 198mph.
Developed from the DNA of the Le Mans class-winning Corvette race car, the Z06 Coupé looks the part inside and out but this American thoroughbred is competing in a high-class European field.
MM verdict: Gas guzzler out of tune with reality.
