For The iconic American muscle car has presence in spaces, and every model has V8 power. It comes with a decent amount of luxury kit as standard, too.
Against The driving experience is bitterly disappointing on most models, and so is the build quality. It’ll cost you a bomb to buy and run, too.
What Car? says
We can see no reason to recommend the Chevrolet Corvette. Countless other sports cars deliver far more ability for similar money.

There are 4 Chevrolet Corvette versions available
Target Price team says:
The Corvette comes in various forms, and it’s essential that you choose carefully. Some versions are quite good fun, but others are really, really disappointing.
Sadly, it’s the cheaper models that are the disappointing ones. They’re not all that cheap, and they don’t ride or handle anywhere near well enough, they don’t feel as fast as the numbers suggest, either, and the poor build quality will leave you feeling very short-changed.
The ZO6 and ZR1 models are different beasts altogether. They have a more sophisticated suspension that greatly improves the ride and handling, and they’re both devilishly fast. Yes, they’re also pricier, but we can see a point to them.
If you don’t have your heart set on a Corvette, though, we can recommend any number of other performance cars that will deliver far more ability for a similar price.
