The Corvette has been known as a performance steal for years now. It’s an attainable sports car that can compete with the best of ’em, and that’s never been more true than with the newest rendition of the Z06 Coupe. Priced well-below $100,000, it still out-powers and out-performs damn near anything coming out of a manufacturer factory.

If you haven’t already seen for yourself, we dug up some numbers to show you just what we’re talkin’ about. The cars here were included because they relate to the Z06 in some way, whether they’re categorized as sports cars, have similar price points, or have similar power outputs. Obviously, not all these cars are going to be cross-shopped with the ‘Vette, some are just there to make the comparison of money-to-power ratio. Check it out…
