How big is a C6? - click the images to find out

Please note these are correct (as far as we are aware) at December 2009.

The C6 is a big car in every way, it weighs over 2.2 tons and is long....

So how big is it in reality?

It will be tight in a lot of garages as at 4908 millimetres it is over 16 feet and you also need to pick your car parking space carefully!
