With only 7902 miles on the odometer, this car is still essentially brand new.

Right now, the C6 Corvette is the biggest bang for the buck in the automotive world, bar none. It’s always true that when a newer version hits the streets, the older versions see a drop in value, but with the Corvette, that means insane amounts of performance and comfort are available for what amounts to pennies on the dollar. If you don’t need (or don’t want to pay for) the latest and greatest C7, this fantastic 2007 Corvette convertible delivers more performance than you’ll ever be able to use, and wraps it in what is arguably the best-looking C6 of them all.

Atomic Orange was a relatively rare color, but that doesn’t tell the whole story on this incredible Corvette ragtop. Sure, the color is rare, but what about that two-tone Ebony/Cashmere interior, which was special-order only and cost extra. This car also has a 6-speed manual transmission, not the standard automatic, and even better, it’s equipped with the Z51 suspension upgrade. Add in things like a power convertible top, heads-up display, and polished wheels, and you have one very rare Corvette that’s built for combat. Like I said, for the money, you probably can’t get a better dance partner.

With only 7902 miles on the odometer, this car is still essentially brand new. It’s almost impossible to believe that it’s now 10 years old, because there’s exactly no evidence of the passage of time anywhere on this car. It’s had just two owners and they both treated it as an artifact, not transportation, and as a result, we’re pretty sure that it’s never even seen rain (it’s literally spotless underneath). The Atomic Orange paint is simply spectacular—there’s a reason it was a $750 upcharge and the lights in our studio simply don’t do it justice. Out in the sunlight, it glows like it’s radioactive or something. Finish quality is excellent because the guys down at Bowling Green get all the tools they need to turn out great product—GM knows that the guys who buy Corvettes care about this stuff a lot more than the guys buying Impalas. Panel fit is equally exacting and the C6 feels like it was carved from a single block of aluminum because it’s rock solid. This car has no accidents, of course, and the nose shows zero evidence of road rash. There might be a scuff or two on the chin spoiler, but that’s pretty much unavoidable (most guys scraped it on the way out of the dealership on day one). And even with those super-sticky Goodyears, there’s no road rash on the rockers. It’s almost like a brand new 10-year-old car. Remarkable!

The interior is truly special, carrying code 316 Ebony and Cashmere Two Tone leather, a $695 option. It’s rare enough that none of the production tracking kept records of how many were built with this handsome combination—we’re guessing they’re lumped in with the 3224 standard Cashmere interior convertibles. Regardless, it’s rare and it’s particularly attractive in an Atomic Orange Z51 6-speed ragtop. One of one? Maybe. It’s certainly gorgeous, with black leather bolsters and tan inserts with racy perforations and custom embroidery on the headrests. Aside from some wrinkling on the outer bolsters, the upholstery is unmarked and as new, the carpets are protected by heavy-duty rubber mats so they look new, and the door panels don’t show so much as a little dent where the driver might have been resting his elbow. It’s clean! It’s also loaded with just about every available option, including the heads-up display, power windows, seats, locks, and mirrors, cruise control, dual-zone climate control, and even heated seats, which are nice on cool evenings with the top down. This car also includes a power convertible top which makes it incredibly easy to go from buttoned-up to wide-open in a matter of seconds, all with the touch of a button. The tan canvas convertible top is in fantastic condition and includes a heated glass rear window. Nice! There’s also a good-sized trunk that’s fully upholstered and includes a handy cargo net for your gear and a few hidden storage bins underneath.

Power, of course, comes from the smooth, torquey, bulletproof, and impressively tractable 6.0-liter LS2 V8. All-aluminum construction makes it light and thanks to a decade of development since the introduction of the LS1, it’s become one of the best performance engines in the world. There’s power all over the tach and you don’t have to flog it to get the most out of it. 400 horsepower is more than enough to get you in loads of trouble and even punching it in 4th or 5th gear results in grin-inducing acceleration. This one is completely unmodified save for a rumbling Corsa stainless steel cat-back exhaust system, which was installed mostly for the sound rather than horsepower, but who’s counting? An unmodified ‘Vette means that it runs, drives, and feels like the factory intended and reliability is completely unaffected. It also means this car hasn’t been raced or abused. The engine bay is as-new, with black coil covers, stock air cleaner assembly, and all the factory hardware completely intact. It has fluids changed as needed, so it’s 100% ready to enjoy and barks to life just by pressing the button on the dash. No surprises here, just a low-mileage car that’s been babied since Day One.

This car also includes the desirable 6-speed manual transmission, which, shockingly enough, only 1078 convertible buyers selected (shame on you, Corvette guys—man up and shift it yourself!). The 6-speed transforms the C6, giving it a more visceral edge and thanks to revised gear ratios in the transmission from the Z51 suspension upgrade and the 3.42 gears in back, it’s quite a bit quicker than the automatic cars. That Z51 package also includes revised springs and shocks, different sway bars, coolers for the transmission and differential, and those gorgeous cross-drilled brake rotors that look awesome behind the polished alloy wheels. The underside, as I mentioned, is like new, with all the original tags and markings fully intact and only the shiny Corsa exhaust deviates from factory spec. Polished forged aluminum wheels look awesome with the Atomic Orange paint (really, would you choose anything else?) and carry original 245/40/18 front and 285/35/19 rear Goodyear run-flats that were slightly stickier than the base suspension’s tires.

Holy cow is this a lot of car for the money! I love driving this car, I love looking at it, and for the money, there’s simply nothing else that can touch it in terms of speed and precision. It’s got the eyeball-popping good looks to out-shine even the C7 at shows and for the guy who understands value, this car offers a heck of a lot of Corvette for about fifty cents on the dollar. Pretty hard to beat that. Call today!
