Victory Red is a popular color, but if you're like me and think it's the only hue worthy of America's best sports car, then this 2008 Corvette has a lot to offer. Loaded with just about every available option and with a miniscule 5,308 original miles, it's the one to own if you like the C6.
Very few Corvettes are purchased new to become daily drivers; they're all someone's lifelong dream and they live in heated garages until the weather is just right to go out and play. That's certainly the case with this awesome removable-roof coupe, which looks as bold and vibrant today as it did on the showroom floor. Victory Red looks spectacular on the sleek C6 Corvette bodywork and if it's attention you crave, this car will deliver by the truckload. By 2008, they pretty much had the Corvette factory in Bowling Green, Kentucky dialed-in, and the cars coming out of there have been extremely high quality for many years, because those guys take a lot of pride in building America's finest sports car. This one has doors that fit well, excellent gaps, and paint that looks like it belongs on a far more expensive car. Even the nose hasn't been sandblasted by gravel or scraped on steep driveways, and while the tires are fairly sticky, the rocker panels look great. There's just no way this Corvette looks over 10 years old.
The Corvette guys got with the program after years of automotive writers complaining about the low-rent passenger compartments. With high-end, sophisticated black leather, this Corvette interior looks expensive and upscale and the seats are supportive and comfortable without being confining. A technological tour-de-force, this Corvette carries just about every option GM could throw at it, including an extensive option package which offers a heads-up display, Bose audio system, power telescoping steering wheel, dual power heated seats, push-button start, power windows and locks, and dual climate zones, just to name a few. A removable top means this beauty can be driven on any occasion and with the spacious trunk, you can carry the glass with you if the weather turns wrong. It's all in excellent condition with extremely minimal wear and you'll never get tired of watching the gauges do their dance every time you key it up.
Remember when the ZR-1 had 405 horsepower and it was astounding? Well, this 2008 C6 pulls 430 horsepower from its LS3 V8 and that's how it came from the factory, complete with a warranty. The LS-series of engines are quite modification-friendly, but this Corvette remains completely stock, right down to the air cleaner, and quite honestly, are you really going to use more than 430 horsepower on your commute to work? With bulletproof reliability and a very tractable nature, this car is equally happy trundling through rush-hour traffic or hammering the corners at the next open track day. There's a lot of black plastic under the hood, but it makes the engine bay look orderly and clean, and with proper maintenance it'll run practically forever. The 6-speed automatic transmission always seems to be in the right gear, and with a towering overdrive, this Corvette pulls down remarkable fuel economy on the open road. Powerful disc brakes live behind gorgeous polished alloy wheels wearing 245/40/18 front and 285/35/19 Goodyear F1 performance radials.
Available for a fraction of its original price, this extremely preserved Corvette offers big performance and all the right options in a searing red package that never fails to stop traffic. Call today!
