Comparison Review

Comfort
As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW M850 and the Chevrolet Corvette in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW M850 as you will with the Chevrolet Corvette, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The BMW M850 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Chevrolet Corvette, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW M850 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Chevrolet Corvette.

Dimensions
Since the BMW M850 is much slimmer than the Chevrolet Corvette, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the BMW M850, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Chevrolet Corvette.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the BMW M850 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Chevrolet Corvette.

Performance
The BMW M850 has less horsepower than the Chevrolet Corvette, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
The BMW M850 offers greater seating capacity than the Chevrolet Corvette, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the BMW M850 as you will in the Chevrolet Corvette.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW M850 than that of the Chevrolet Corvette.
