"This special edition Zo6 100 year is a dream to drive. I am very lucky to be living in Germany, as you all know some places have NO speed limite so driving a 150 plus miles an hour is a dream. My car is a crowd pleaser the Germans love it. I have smoked a lot of cars I.e Porsches, Ferraris Bmws and Mercedes. The only time I got smoked was by a Lamborghini Aventador.No brainier their. I hope you lik it. Tony."

"I transitioned from a C5 Z06 to a C6 convertible with automatic for health reasons. The transmission kills this car. The six-speed automatic is slow to shift under power, slow to downshift when you need it most and seems to be constantly shifting under normal driving conditions. Build quality is OK at best and the electronic interlocks will drive you crazy. It's a beautiful car and you'll get lots of interest and comments from people, but be prepared, owning a Vette is not like owning a Camry, you'll be busy keeping it road worthy."

"I bought this Corvette new in 05. After 8 years I sold it to my best friend and now I am buying it back.I installed the STS Twin Turbo System at 8000 miles, ( 2008 ) Car has withstood the test of time, has always been dependable, great gas mileage, if you can stay off the gas pedal, has 570 Rear Wheel Horsepower, ( Have Dyno Sheets ) and is just as fast as a new Z06 Corvette. Chevy did not offer a Z06 Corvette but this Vette has a Z06 trans and rear installed in 2009. Car is a 'Sleeper' in every sense."

Pros: "BANG FOR BUCK, Fun,Sporty,SOUND,low price"

Cons: "seats"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"The car itself drives very well. The tires are super sticky and accelerating throws you back into your seat and keeps you there. Also the sound, ITS AMAZING!!! Especially accelerating, even idle sounds magnificent. Finally, the traction control is very good. The only downside to this car is the seats they are a little flimsy but if you buy a nice corvette seat cover they are actually very good."
