The HSV Clubsport R8-equivalent offers performance to rival the BMW M5 for less than half the cost, with prices starting from just US$39,995.

This price includes a six-speed automatic transmission as standard, with an optional six-speed manual gearbox attracting a US$695 premium.

At this price it also outshines the standard Corvette in bang-for-buck value, offering the performance of an identical 6.2-litre V8 engine with the practicality of five seats.

With fuel prices plummeting in the US and around the world as a result of the global financial crisis, the idea of an affordable performance family sedan has become slightly more justifiable for many new car buyers.
