6. Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Z51

Chevrolet Corvette Stingray

Now we’re talkin’, a real performance machine with all of the right ingredients. Chevy’s Corvette has been a speed icon for the past six decades and the C7 is unquestionably the best one ever.

With a burly V8 up front, rear-wheel drive and an available seven-speed manual transmission this car is more entertaining than a drunken night in an Eastern-European brothel, though probably less contagious.

The Vette’s 6.2-liter LT1 not-so-small-block puts down 455 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque, figures that result in predictably astonishing acceleration. The zero-to-60 sprint takes just 3.8 seconds. Its available dual-mode exhaust is absolutely sonorous!
