The New Z06 is King – Here’s Why
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.
Top Gear has named the Z06 its Muscle Car of the Year. That’s in addition to Jeremy Clarkson naming the standard C7 Stingray as his personal Car of the Year in the magazine’s new Awards Edition.
This week we’re celebrating the lucky ones; the people who are living their dreams and driving the best Corvette yet: the 2015 Z06.
First thing’s first: we know the 2015 Corvette Z06 in bone-stock form makes 585 horsepower and 617 lb-ft of torque at the wheels. Why do we know this? Vengeance Racing just got their hands on a brand-new Z06. They are the first tuner we know of to do so, and they immediately got the car on the dyno once they got it back to the shop. But it’s what they did before they drove the car off the lot that has a lot of people going crazy on Facebook right now.
Corvette Forum member WELEPRO took home a brand new Z06, and he’s already given us video of the first start-up and a glowing drive-home report.
