Corvettes are actually good value for money, such as the Z06
, but are not as easily modified as many of the imports. Unfortunately, the technology used in Corvettes is very old. The Corvette still runs on the GM
Y-Body chassis, which has been used since the Vietnam war
on less sporty models (Think Sedan). Leaf springs are STILL as the rear suspension. The only way Corvettes can get more power is to make the engine bigger. Even so, the giant 5.7L engine only produces 400HP for its size. Compare that with the Honda S2000's F20C which produces 250HP with only 2L. Even the Toyota 2JZ-GTE produces 320HP with 3L.
Yes, the Z06 does have 505HP, but the engine got even bigger, 7.0L to be exact.
Value for money? Yes, but it really isnt that good of a car. Straight line abilities are good, but the entire world is never going to be a complete straight. Turning abilities are needed for competitions, something Corvettes don't have. Top speed? Good, but what are the chances of someone in a vette flying down a highway at 150+ MPH?
