Given the enormous performance and neck-twisting style the Corvette offers, a list price of less than £46k could be seen as a bit of a bargain. You’ll pay more heavily when it comes to running costs, though – you’ll struggle to hit the average fuel economy figure of 21.7mpg. The ’Vette needs a service every 10,000 miles, too.
Corvette C6 Coupe quality & reliability
The good thing about the Corvette is that it’s a fairly simple beast, with tried and trusted mechanical bits, so reliability should be a given. In 2008, an upgraded cabin with lots of leather raised quality perceptions, but there are a few nasty items, such as the seat adjusters and sun visors.
Corvette C6 Coupe safety & security
All Corvettes come with traction control, stability control and twin front and side airbags as standard. Each car also has an alarm and immobiliser, although deadlocks are absent from the equipment list.
