The Chevrolet Corvette has always been an impressive value proposition, offering up supercar levels of performance for less than most luxury sedans cost. A used Corvette offers even better bang for your buck, a point proven by this mint 2001 C5 Z06 currently for sale on eBay in California.
The C5 Z06 was powered by Chevrolet’s 385 horsepower, 5.7-liter LS6 V8 engine and was only available with a 6-speed manual transmission. It was surprisingly fast, mainly due to the fixed roof Corvette’s low kerb weight, and could accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.9 seconds and post an 11.8 second quarter-mile time.
This particular example was meticulously maintained and owned by a true car and Corvette lover, according to the listing. It comes with all service records and documentation (including the bill of sale) and has been garaged since new. Furthermore, the retired seller says he’s only driven it 3,000 miles every year, racking up 44,000 total miles.
Best of all? You could have this 11-second V8-powered sportscar in your garage for $19,490. Buy it as a late Christmas gift to yourself and start 2015 off right: behind the wheel of a Corvette.
