This Corvette Z06 with the Z07 package and all the options was close to $100,000 when new, which doesn’t exactly make it the ideal ride of the proletariat masses you think of when you picture a Bernie Sanders supporter. So what the hell is going on here?
If the standard Z06’s 1740cc supercharger isn’t big enough for you, Callaway will build you one with a 2300cc unit that rises the horsepower figure to 757 and the torque to 777 lb-ft. Because the Corvette Z06 just didn’t have enough power stock, right?
Sure, you can read loads of articles with lap times and stats on the Z06, watch plenty of videos with smokey drifts or demonstrations of exactly how much driver aids in the C7 Z06 can save you, but who’s going to tell you how to actually drive the thing and get the most out of your experience with it?
The Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is already a blazing hot track stud. The Corvette C7.R is already a very fast race car. But if you want your Z06 to be just a little bit more like the racer, welcome the Corvette Z06 C7.R edition. It’s like the C7.R in a few ways. But only a few, because the Z06 is much, much more powerful.
I'm coming to you live from inside a 650 horsepower weapon from Bowling Green. What do you want to know?
I guess Chevy won't need a better advertisement for the Corvette Z06 than Mr. Denim Shirt himself getting pulled over in the canyons.
So you have your awesome new 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. You're being a good little boy or girl and adhering to the break-in procedure. All of a sudden, your engine starts knocking. What'd you do?!
It's the holidays, so I imagine many of you will be returning all those socks and snuggles and novelty LED-illuminated underpants and pooling the money to buy yourself a car. Maybe you want a new Corvette Z06? Maybe you've gone to Chevy's site to build one and see how much it would be? Maybe you found yourself really…
We all knew the 650 horsepower 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 would be fast. That's the whole point. Now we know it's gonna be stupid fast: the zero to 60 mph dash is done in 2.95 seconds, and it will run a 10.95 second quarter mile. Stupid fast, I say!
We live in a golden age of accessible and insanely overpowered muscle cars. There's the Corvette Z06 making 650 HP, and of course there's the 707 HP SRT Hellcat. But what about those poor bastards who made childhood promises to only drive Fords? Who's thinking of them? John Hennesey is, with his 717 HP Mustang.
Testing the 650 horsepower 2015 Corvette Z06 at the Nürburgring serves two important purposes. It shows what the car can do on one of the world's most difficult tracks, and it gives those snooty Europeans a taste of the storm that's coming their way.
Automotive awards are so damn boring. I can't remember which car company won the WAPOW or the NECTARINE, and which one had the magazine ad with the trophy in it. I'm too busy with my ADD and this copy of Entertainment Weekly.
The Most Valuable Player of the Super Bowl will be getting some sort of car, that much is for sure. Whether it's Peyton Manning/Richard Sherman/Russell Wilson/Wes Welker/J.R. Sweezy (?) really doesn't matter, they'll be getting something. But is it the right car for such a super MVP?
