    It's not as bad as you would think.

    I drove it back from Manchester earlier and averaged 17.4mpg.

    The DAX does 100-130mpg, Golf does 41-60mpg and the Corvette does 12-24mpg (official figures).

    With the 3 of them it covers the spectrum quite well.

    As it's only a toy for a bit of fun that's my thinking.
    Everyday car a Corvette isn't.

    It makes a wicked noise.
    It has a custom 4 exit exhaust system with custom cold air induction kit.
    The american company who supplied them Ecklers claim when used together give 35-40hp increase.

    Just got to get used to the short shift gearshift (as it's a 6speed manual) and driving on the wrong side of the car.
