Each week, the AOL Autos Editors are highlighting a vehicle that we think is an exceptionally good deal based on its credentials and its current selling price compared with its MSRP and historical selling price. Make sure to check back every week for THE hot deal!

The Chevrolet Corvette is already probably the best high-performance value in America. And as dealers look to make room for the 2012 model, 2011s are enjoying steep discounts. Given that the 2012 is essentially the same exact car, you, the savvy consumer, can get a great deal on an iconic set of wheels. How good of a deal, you ask? Try a whopping $7,153 under MSRP, for a total price of $46,892 (excluding destination fee).

The Corvette Convertible's famous 6.2L V-8 engine produces 430-hp and and 424 lb-ft of torque and even manages to get halfway decent fuel economy (16 mpg City, 26 mpg Highway). It also boasts fantastic driving dynamics and, of course, beautiful and instantly recognizable sheet-metal (which is a figure of speech -- the Vette's exterior is actually made of sheet molded compound). But it's that near-instant 0-60 MPH acceleration that makes us drool. The thought of roaring down a lonely road with the top down could make even the most car-adverse of people seriously consider a purchase.

The Chevrolet Corvette is an American icon, for good reason, and can be yours right now for a pretty sweet price. What more is there to say? Supercar performance for under $50,000 is something we all can find agreeable, so get to your local Chevrolet dealership and bargain hard or take along an AOL Autos Best Price Guarantee Certificate. You can walk away with a great deal.
