Update: C6 Corvette ZR1 is no Longer in Production
Apparently fans of the 638-horsepower C6 ZR1 still have a little time to pick up one of the cars despite all other C6 production having been discontinued.
I’m not quite sure how I missed this one, but considering that it’s built on the beloved C6 platform, I figured it’s deserving of a few comments here, good or bad. The Soleil Anadi, hand-built in Italy, was showcased at the recent New York International Auto Show, and so far counts three owners in the Middle East as its exclusive customer base, according to a New York Times report.
I can’t remember if I’ve ever come across a creepy Corvette, but this one certainly fits the bill. The eerie-looking C6 was created by a fan of Forza Motorsport 4. From the dripping blood, to Pennywise, the Dancing Clown from Stephen King’s “It”, the design is a pretty strange take on a Corvette.
I’ve heard songs that mention turbo ‘Vettes and little red Corvettes, but I’ve never heard a song that mentions a yellow Corvette. It would have been nice if Wiz Khalifa’s song “Black and Yellow” was about a Corvette, but the lyrics actually signified his allegiance to the Pittsburgh Steelers, and the car in the “Black and Yellow” music video was a Dodge Challenger SRT8. Khalifa’s “Black and Yellow” music video has 171 million views on YouTube, but maybe it would have already hit 200 million if it had featured a Corvette like the one above. OK, maybe not, but a ‘Vette in the video would have been nice.
The C7 Corvette represents a major leap over the C6 in all categories. In terms of design, that leap is best delineated when you compare their rumps. The contrast is striking, isn’t it?
