We’re starting to get wind of some of the first street match-ups pitting the new Z06 against some pretty noteworthy competitors, and the results are very interesting.
Top Gear has named the Z06 its Muscle Car of the Year. That’s in addition to Jeremy Clarkson naming the standard C7 Stingray as his personal Car of the Year in the magazine’s new Awards Edition.
This week we’re celebrating the lucky ones; the people who are living their dreams and driving the best Corvette yet: the 2015 Z06.
This C7 was going way too fast in a residential area, which is just about the dumbest move ever.
First thing’s first: we know the 2015 Corvette Z06 in bone-stock form makes 585 horsepower and 617 lb-ft of torque at the wheels. Why do we know this? Vengeance Racing just got their hands on a brand-new Z06. They are the first tuner we know of to do so, and they immediately got the car on the dyno once they got it back to the shop. But it’s what they did before they drove the car off the lot that has a lot of people going crazy on Facebook right now.
