The Corvette is a rare sight in the UK, but it offers a lot of car for the money. It costs less than a BMW M3, but the Corvette has real supercar pace and presence.

Running costs

The C6 and Z06 are markedly cheaper than most of their competitors with similar performance and specification. However, limited buyer interest also means the Corvette loses value more rapidly before levelling out at a point where enthusiasts will become very interested. Running any car with a sizeable V8 engine is not cheap, but the Z06’s 24mpg is not as damaging to your bank account as some rivals’.

That said, insurance and servicing will generate big bills.
