Kelley Blue Book (KBB) announced their 2008 Vehicle Residual Value Analysis. Kelley is well known for being THE source for vehicle values for dealers and more recently for the public with their great online tools. Every year they come out with their list of vehicles that retain their value the best in a number of categories. The analysis is based on 2008 vehicles only with projected values in five years.
This year, the 2008 Chevrolet Z06 comes in tops in the High Performance Car category. This means that of all high performance cars out there, the Z06 is projected to retain its value the best. Great news for Corvette owners looking to sell their Z06 down the line.
Here’s what Kelley said about the Z06: "Replace the standard Corvette’s 430-horsepower V8 with a 505-horsepower V8—an engine hand-assembled by a single technician—and you’ve got what many consider the best of the best in American sports cars. The added power is managed by a reworked suspension that delivers improved handling with very little sacrifice in highway ride comfort."
