New Corvette Z06 Takes on Godzilla
Motor Trend decided to do a proper track test with the new Corvette Z06, while pitting the supercar against one of its main competitors: the Nissan GT-R Nismo.
Whoever said we’re in the twilight of horsepower and performance cars hasn’t looked outside recently. If anything, we’re in the new golden age of both.
Just take the following video of a race between a C7 Z06 and a motorcycle as proof.
While the Corvette Z06 is getting most of the headlines these days, it seems plenty of people are happy with their C7 Stingrays, so much so that they don’t feel compelled to trade up.
When Dirk Diggler first shows off his new “Competition Orange” 1977 Corvette Stingray, he says, “This is it — this is the thing. This is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen in my life.”
This rant goes out to the group that has decided that buying the last-generation Z06 is the far-better investment than the new car, especially when you throw in a few performance modifications.
