While the C7 might be at center stage, the previous-generation C6 Corvette represents a tremendous platform for modification, and with clean, low-mile examples available at reasonable prices, you might even call it a performance bargain. 

Our own pet Corvette has some choice upgrades, from wheels and tires to long-tube headers and a performance exhaust. We even added more whoa to match the go with aftermarket brakes as well. The C6 was terrific right off the showroom floor, but we’ve proven that with a little help from the dozens of companies making go-fast parts for America’s sports car, it can be even better.
