The new Z06 is officially the most powerful production-spec Corvette ever, with 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. To celebrate this new wave of power that is headed to showrooms for the 2015 model year, let’s take a look back at an earlier-model Z06 for this edition of “Corvette of the Week”.
We’ve spotted Corvette Z06 mules at the Tail of the Dragon. These pictures were recently posted by “Scudzey” on Imgur. New Z06 variant? ZR1? What is GM hiding from us? We are finding out, and we’ll be updating this post throughout the day.
Corvette Forum has recently been infused with a 55-gallon injection of beauty serum. Forum member “Phantasms” (a.k.a. Gene Sanchez Leeds) has posted 125 jaw-dropping images from the New York Auto Show that you must see. Click past the jump for a link to photos that are about as wonderful as the first time you broke through the 100 mph barrier.
Z06 fans: now you can have your cake and eat it, too. GM has released images of the 2015 Corvette Z06 Convertible. I think it is as beautiful as it is fast. You’re looking at the most powerful convertible Chevrolet has ever built, and probably the most fun way to mess up your hair.
What is it about European Corvettes? They’re so menacing. An American version of this Z06 would remind me of a tire-smoldering weekend at the track, or a bit of hooning between the stoplights. When I look at this “Wallpaper Wednesday” car, I see a Corvette that looks like it just chased an innocent Ford Fiesta through a British shopping mall.
