“That escalated quickly.” I know it’s a cliché, albeit a fitting one for a hill climb race. But it’s all I could think about after our car—a salvage-title C7 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 street car transformed into a race car in just a few desperate weeks—not only survived the Pikes Peak Hill Climb but finished just one…
The current Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is a supercharged monster, a 650 horsepower nightmare aimed at dominating the track in a way that shames Hellcats and Porsches alike. But it has a well-documented problem with overheating. Now Z06 owners have filed a class-action lawsuit against General Motors today, alleging that…
Vehicle Virgins, for those shamefully not up on their YouTube car channels, is a wildly popular channel run by Parker Nirenstein, a man who’s been featured here before because of some online drama about a hood with fellow popular car-Tuber Rob Dahm. One of the cars featured prominently in that channel is an…
Backing the Callaway Corvette AeroWagen onto the street was like stumbling into a family reunion buck naked. Moms grabbed their kids, grandmas fainted, everybody else ran screaming. “What’s wrong with these dorks,” I snorted. Then I hit the gas and realized the neighbors had every right to be terrified.
If you plan on taking your Corvette to the track, all the power in the world won’t help if your brakes can’t take the heat. Good news: right now Chevrolet is offering special incentives this month for Grand Sport and Z06 buyers to get Brembos practically free.
A truckload of brand new Corvettes still in their packaging wrap was involved in a minor rub with a dump truck in Alabama today, tearing into at least three of the cars, one of which appears to be a new Z06. Are those blood stains? Do cars bleed?
Remember those V8 vegetable juice commercials where people would physically assault someone’s forehead for not getting the vital nutrients they need? Here’s a reference. Well on the opposite end of that, this C7 Corvette Z06 driver totaled his car by actually having a V8.
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!
