Classic American sports car; excellent performance even in base trim; world-class supercar value

And while the Corvette will never be mistaken for an economy car, it does get a surprising 26 mpg on the highway when equipped with the 6-speed manual transmission. The Corvette's true value comes in its race-tuned engine and handling, its sexy curves, and in its grins per mile. All this comes at an entry price of just under $50,000--a terrific performance bargain.
