Chevrolet Corvette ZR1

Chevrolet Corvette ZR1

Price: $112,050

The most affordable car on this list, Chevrolet's Corvette ZR1 is also the solitary domestic entry. Think winning a "scratch off" rather than Powerball.

Only a few visual cues differentiate the ZR1 from the $49,900 base Corvette, but sometimes flying under the radar is preferable to showing off. A carbon-fiber hood covers a 638-horsepower, supercharged, 6.2-liter V-8. The only available gearbox is a six-speed manual. Reaching 60 miles per hour takes less than four seconds. The rumored top speed is in the neighborhood of 200 miles per hour. The cabin is more sporty than luxurious, but the seats are leather-covered, and there are lots of high-end amenities, including a head-up display that projects key driver information onto the windshield, keyless ignition and an available DVD-based navigation system.
