If the wait to see if you’ll even be able to get your hands on a new Z06 is becoming too much to bare, then you might want to consider the new supercharger system for the C7 being offered by Edelbrock.
Well folks, in case you haven’t heard, the official numbers are in for the new Z06, and the Corvette kingdom will never be the same.
The video after the jump is a one-minute and thirty-three-second clip of the new Z06 Convertible starting up that I’m betting will have a few people dreaming of hitting the lottery. It certainly has me thinking of some ways I can come up with the cash to buy one. The sound of a C7 Corvette Z06 is a much-needed morphine shot to quell the pain of the world’s four-cylinder, commuter-car cacophony. I’ve already replayed the video ten times to keep my fix alive.
There’s something about seeing this thing in its natural state without all that computer-generated crap used to enhance photos. Then again, maybe it’s just my own personal pet peeve in knowing how computer-enhanced images can make some things look a lot nicer than they are in real life. Don’t get me wrong, I love all those studio shots General Motors released last week of the new 2015 Convertible Z06. They’ve been creating quite a buzz, but seeing that blue topless Z06 on the stand at the 2014 New York International Auto Show really brings it to life.
Well, you can add the first retail model of the 2015 Corvette Z06 to the coveted car collection of motorsports king, Rick Hendrick. The chairman of the Hendrick Automotive Group paid $1 million for the car at the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction in Palm Beach, Florida this past weekend. Not that it really should come as a big surprise: Mr. Hendrick, an avid Corvette enthusiast, also paid $1 million for the first production model of the 2014 Stingray last year at a Barrett-Jackson auction.
