Want to know which cars are cool? You’ve got to come to Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Los Angeles or Santa Monica. If it makes the cut out here, you’ll be bewildered by the dizzying amount of supercar specimens roaming the streets, one being the Corvette.

The previous generation Corvette, for better or for worse, never really made the cut. But the present generation is proving otherwise. The Z06 trim model offers an eight-speed transmission system and the gonzo 650-hp output that provides more oomph than you could ever need. It’s finally up to snuff with its upscale feature offering such as a sumptuous cabin, cutting-edge performance, and supercar-grade performance.

You’ll actually have to look long and hard during a nitpicking mission, as this ‘Vette literally lacks any notable fault. It’s actually unfathomable what Chevy is offering it for. There is no shortage of rivals here, despite the allure that surrounds the new 2017 Corvette. Some of them include the BMW M4, the Porsche 911, Nissan GT-R, and the Dodge Viper.
