There may be some confusion about how many Corvettes with 36-gallon fuel tanks were built back in the ‘60s, but there’s certainly no question about how valued these cars are to auctioneers now.
As much as it looks like this Corvette was crafted for cops, RPO 687 actually made the C1 more track-capable. This was the precursor to RPO Z06 that would be offered in the C2 the following model year. Still, this triple-black car looks ready to chase bad guys rather than a first-place finish.
Before you go taking your Z06 Corvette on a glory quest for 200mph, please, learn how to drive first.
Is the automatic Z06 Corvette just as much fun as the manual? Motor Trend goes to the track to find out.
According to Motor Trend’s recent Corvette Z06 retest at Willow Springs International Raceway’s “Big Track”, the Z06 (when equipped with a manual transmission) is faster than the Nissan GT-R NISMO.
