2. C6 Chevrolet Corvette
Any list of chassis codes would be incomplete without mentioning the Chevrolet Corvette, which is known by a C followed by the generation of the car. Our favorite is the C6 (although the new C7 may change that).
Available between 2004 and 2013, the C6 used a variety of potent V8 engines throughout its production. Depending on the trim level, among them is the “tame” 6.0-liter V8 engine that offers 400 horsepower, or the huge 7.0-liter LS7 that makes 505 hp. Of course the high-performance ZR-1 used a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 with 638 hp.
The C6 is noteable for bringing so much performance to so many people and even introduced new features to the Corvette formula – namely technology. With the ZR1 model, buyers could have the magnetic-ride suspension setup, which helped the car handle compete against higher performing vehicles than it ever could before.
