2007 Chevrolet Corvette / Z06

The present Z06 is a tamed-for-the-street endurance racer. Its 7.0-litre V8 has a dry-sump oil system and the structure makes liberal use of aluminum, magnesium and carbon-fibre. Yet for all the emphasis on performance, it is also a pussycat to drive gently, as well as luxuriously kitted out. With a 0-100 km/h time below four seconds and five-figure price tag, the Z06 is one of the great performance bargains of all time.
