OPTIMA Presents Corvette of the Week: Arctic White-Hot Z51
Chevy’s decision to call this Corvette of the Week’s color “Arctic White” does nothing to cool the hot demeanor of the C7, let alone this one with the red rim blades that match the red brake calipers and the Adrenaline Red Competition Sport seats.
With this week’s Wallpaper Wednesday, we get up close and personal with a C6 ZR1 and its burnout … perhaps close enough for some glorious tire aroma to waft through your computer screen.
The damaged engine didn’t taint Car and Driver’s feeling for the Corvette. As highlighted in their headline , “Our Corvette blew an engine, but we still love it.”
Ordinary fixed-roof coupes were born before the benefits of the LS6’s power boost that made the C5 Z06 legendary; however, this fixed-roofer is a legend in its own right.
Some may see this as a C6 Corvette carving it up on the track. We see it as a ‘Vette circumnavigating Saturn.
