Road and Track test Vette vs R8 vs V8 Vantage vs F430

Recommended Posts

Despite all the technology in the new cars (R8 and Van V8), the new LS series V8 just keeps proving to be a sweet engine. Before you get your hopes up too much, keep in mind this is a fairly base Corvette going up against cars the start at $70k more in price. Also remember that the F430 and the Vette are 3 to 4 years old. The list of excuses is long and goes on and on :AH-HA_wink: Funny thing is Vette may have fared better if not for the optional suspension :lol:


Vette - All Power all the time

V8 Vantage - Better battle for the XLR

F430 - Lawdy that's expensive

R8 - Who forgot the soul?

The 'vette being compared to these other cars says a lot. :) Especially when it's not even the z06.

I just sold (about 3 weeks ago) my modded 2001 Z06 C5 and bought a 2008 C6 Z51 w/npp and hot dam this car is awesome. The power, the advances in NVH and interior are impressive. The precision in the steering also is a nice surprise. (for me)

Nice evolution on the Corvette and even if the Z51 C6 coupe didn't win the comparision outright....(although its engine was selected as the best) I have to say this was heady competition.

Very impressive sports car.

My first black car too..

Like I told my wife while we were dating.(joking). I like it a little dirty!

Means its being used!
