Aside from huge price difference, Corvette would be a more reasonable daily driver.

I thought Ford were picky about who gets a GT. My understanding is you can't just walk in and buy one.

Like HapaHapa says the Corvette is more suited to daily use, whereas the GT is a pretty niche vehicle.

No comparison. GT all day everyday. But its an apples to oranges comparison.

Corvette all the way!! Unless you're a pro racer driver, you'll never push it to its limits. At 100,000 vs almost half a mill for the Gt, it's a no brainer IMHO.
Here's my Z06, 650HP, 650 TQ. The Z06 does 0-60 in 2.95 secs.

Well, maintenance might be higher, but 5 yrs from now the Vette will be with 1/2 purchase price and the GT will probably be worth double what you paid, so I don't know that the financial argument works in this case.

Perhaps tip of the hat to the late Lingenfelter (who produced the sledgehammer corvette) ?
