Now this is an interesting comparison. Matt Farah of The Smoking Tire is a pretty avid Corvette guy, in fact he is the owner of a beautifully modified 1998 C5 model. What’s interesting is that the modifications that Matt performed on his car were performed with the goal of making not only a great track day weapon, but a great weekend street car as well. Matt then took a look at the new 2011 Corvette Grand Sport as a comparison to his 12 year old modified C5. The Grand Sport comes stock with 436 hp and 428 lb-ft torque, as well as a whopping price tag of just under $70,000 which makes it out of the range of most people. So, the real question is, do you drop $70,000 on a new 2011 Grand Sport, or spend 18-20k on a used C5 with some mods. After watching you’ll know what Matt thinks, but what about you?
