With the end of the year quickly approaching, car companies are laying out some pretty hefty discounts and promotions. Influenced by these deals, Kelley Blue Book recently released their top ten list of holiday car deals. The car at the top of the list? The 2011 Corvette of course! Thanks to our friends over at CorvetteBlogger for bringing us the news.

There is no doubt in our mind that the 2011 Corvette is a great deal in itself, regardless of promotions or discounted pricing. Kelley Blue Book agrees, stating that, “The 2011 Chevrolet Corvette continues to offer driving enthusiasts the most bang for the buck, running neck-and-neck (and in some cases surpassing) exotic cars costing up to four times as much – or even more.” With Corvette as their top holiday pick, Kelley Blue Book also acknowledged that the Corvette is the only car of its kind in the United States, offering 430 horsepower and an EPA estimated 26 miles to the gallon fuel economy from a two-seater sports car that costs only about $50,000.

In addition to what the Corvette offers drivers, the deals that General Motors has been dishing out on the 2011 and 2012 models were also a factor in Kelley Blue Book’s decision to make the Corvette its number one holiday car deal. Currently, 2011 Corvettes are being offered with a $3,000 rebate or optional 0 percent financing for five years. Current Corvette owners can also get an additional $3,000 toward the purchase of a 2011 model.

With all the end of the year deals going on now and the recent decision by Kelley Blue Book to name the Corvette as their top holiday car deal, now is a perfect time to purchase a 2011 Corvette. Maybe that will mean a few more Corvettes under the tree this Christmas. If only Santa would drop one off for us….
