Thats an interesting point that you bring up. I would like to know the names of these cars as i can think of only 1. The mustang cobra is the only car that can compete with the C6 for the price imo.

Hard to find similar cars within the Vette price! (front engine, RWD, fire)
In Germany it's the BMW M3 (no V8 yet), 350 Nissan (no V8), TVR Kit car, Maserati Ghibli, Alfa Romeo Brera (import 2005/6 in the US)

Thats because you live in the US. Here in the UK there are quite a lot e.g TVR's, Noble's, Caterham's, Westfild's etc and thats just the cars which are made in the UK
