A Corvette Z06 is a pretty good deal for what it is, but it's not exactly cheap. It starts at about $80 grand, and as you can imagine, there's some pricey options: racing stripes are $950, a carbon fiber ground effects package is $3995, and a fire extinguisher is as much as a Chevy Cruze. What, what?
The Chevy Corvette is the ultimate staple in the little niche we call performance cars. It employs a blend of old and new technology to thrust you to a nearly unimaginable rate of speed. This amazingly aggressive thrill machine can now be had for less money than its fatter, uglier, and slower sister - the Camaro.
Remember when we said that GM didn't have exact power figures on the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06? The guesstimates were around 625 horsepower and 635 pound-feet of twist. Nope. This leaked SAE dyno chart shows the supercharged V8 putting out 650 horsepower and 650 pound feet of torque. 'Murica!
Jalopnik has already shown you the new Corvette Stingray on the road, and the car has since been publicly unveiled. So why is GM trying so hard to conceal the identity of the car that was spotted testing at Road Atlanta yesterday?
This idea is so perverse I can't help but love it. It's a picture of what appears to be a nicely-polished Honda 1.8L B18 engine nestled in the engine bay of a Z06 Corvette. Now, to Corvette purists, this is the equivalent of getting a heart transplant from a mole — an abomination that also is just too feeble to…
Put a pair of high horsepower vehicles trying to go as fast as possible side by side for a quarter mile over and over again and you're going to get some unbelievable crash footage eventually. Put an inexperienced driver in a Corvette Z06 with the traction control off and you're going to get an entirely different…
After a photo shoot in the Dutch city of Baarn last weekend this Corvette decided to prove it too wanted to be an exotic car and set its engine on fire. Fortunately for the car's owner and somewhat unfortunately for us the fire is a little bit smaller than the exotic Italian flambé we've grown accustomed to.
Somewhere outside of Atlanta, there is a Corvette with a trailer hitch towing a mini-Vette. Drivers beware, as its intense cuteness could lead to dangerous distraction, crashes, or the overwhelming desire to get one yourself.
It's gotta better power-to-weight ratio than a Porsche 911 Turbo S. It charges to 60 mph in just 3.8 seconds from a dead stop. It's gotta big ol' LS7 V8 under-hood. It's the 2013 Chevy Corvette 427 Convertible, the fastest convertible 'Vette ever sold with the bow-tie badge.
This film's premise is as simple as can be: Eighteen minutes of one Corvette chasing another around Road Atlanta during a NASA Thunder Group Toy Run. It's also about as good a racing movie as has ever been made.
As a general rule, new cars are expensive, especially the performance models that car lovers lust after. Even if you can't afford to purchase the car you lust after when it's brand new, as long as it's not something super rare or exotic, chances are eventually you might get a chance at owning your dream car for a…
Darius Khashabi, owner of a track-prepped 2006 Corvette Z06, talked his mother into riding along for a few hot laps around Laguna Seca track last month. He didn't tell her the cameras were videoing until the end. It's a real scream.
Before watching this full mile Russian drag race video it wouldn't seem unreasonable to think a supercharged 700hp Corvette Z06 racing a 1000+ horsepower Koenigsegg CCRX would surely result in a Swedish slaughter fest.
Assuming your idea of a new Corvette isn't just one with Louis Chevrolet's face all over it, GM's performance brand is adding a ton of tiny tweaks for 2012 including a new ZR1 High Performance Package and Performance Traction Management for the Z06.
Chevy's celebrating their 100th anniversary with the another special edition of their flagship sports car: the 2012 Chevrolet Centennial Edition Corvette. It'll add magnetic selective ride control, custom satin black wheels, and the most special special badging ever.
FIA GT1 Corvette Z06 driver Nick Catsburg, under intense pressure from Jamie Campbell-Walter in his Sumo Power Nissan GT-R, loses the rear, then pulls off a perfect 360-degree spin-save in Abu Dhabi this past weekend. That's some serious situational awareness.
The twin-turbo Hinson Motorsports C6 Corvette Z06 joined two special clubs at this weekend's Texas Mile: the 230 mph+ club and the oh-my-God-how-did-they-survive-that-accident club. More scary for the driver, both membership cards were punched at the same time.
We told you earlier Hinson Motorsports' Twin Turbo Corvette Z06 crashed and rolled at the Texas Mile Saturday. It is even harder to believe the driver was uninjured in the 230+ MPH crash after seeing these pictures, taken by FullThrottleV6 forum user WarShrike, of the carnage as it happened.

Hinson Motorsports' C6 Corvette Z06 crashed at speeds in excess of 230 miles an hour yesterday at the Texas Mile. Amazingly the driver walked away from the crash without injury.
Try as it might — no matter how much smoke and noise arose from his burnouts, the Top Gear hosts would not awaken from their drinking, revelry and eventual alcohol-induced slumber. Dejected, the 2011 Corvette Z06 Carbon sadly puttered home.
