Chevrolet's 2008 Corvette coupe and convertible are flashy, fast sports cars, yet they're comfortable enough to drive daily in fair-weather places. The Corvette Z06 especially is one of the best-performing cars in the world, and makes various race-proven design features available in an affordably priced production vehicle. Relative to its performance rivals, all well over $100,000, the Z06 is a downright bargain at a touch over $70,000. The Corvette's various improvements and across-the-line power boost for 2008 make it an even better value.
The Chevy Corvette gets extensive mechanical changes for 2008, including more powerful engines for both the standard model and the top-performance Z06, plus improved transmission action and steering feel. Also, a new 2.73 performance axle ratio is available with the six-speed paddle-shift automatic or included with the Z51 package.
The Chevrolet Corvette gets more power for 2008. The new version of the standard aluminum-block V8 in the Corvette coupe and convertible models now displaces 6.2 liters and is rated at 430 horsepower--30 horsepower more than last year's 6.0-liter engine--and 424 ft-lbs of torque. The engine gets a number of design changes, including a new intake manifold that yields a more refined sound. It can be matched with either a six-speed manual gearbox or six-speed automatic with paddle-shifters beside the steering wheel.
