#3 the Chevrolet Corvette C6 ZR1

The Corvette has been around since the 50’s and in its long lifespan it’s never really gotten respect from the European market or the racing community. That is until the C5’s started dominating in GT racing. Building on the success of the C5 racing Chevrolet built the C6 Corvette ready to take on the big boys. First came the legendary Z06 with its massive 7.0 liter (427 cubic-inch) engine pushing 505 horsepower.

Next the ZR1, and a nameplate from the old C3 and C4 Corvettes returned. The ZR1 rewrote the book for the Corvette. With a 638 horsepower supercharged 6.2 liter, the ZR1 is the most powerful production Corvette to date. At over $100,000, it’s also the most expensive Corvette to date.

It’s not just the numbers that make this hit our list. Everything that the Corvette should be was implemented in this car. It looks amazing, sounds amazing, and goes like hell.
