Default Saw the new ZO6 up close and personal!

Saw the new C7 ZO6 for the first time...actually it was the first public unveiling outdoors. Damn thing looks great! The rear center part of the wing/spoiler/lip is adjustable. It has slots in it for height adjustment. Very cool.

Oh, the unveiling was at the Emelia Island Concours d'Elegance show. We went up for a few days to check out the scene. It was ridiculous! Damn!

New ZO6:

I am still getting used to it. I like the different tail lights on the ZO6...they are growing on me! The more I see the C7's, the more I like them. The front splitter/valance is also much nicer IMO on the Z than the base C7.


I, obviously am a fan of the C6, however, I am kinda excited to see what this new generation will do/bring to the table. Can't wait for a real road test/review.

Sooooooo, as of right now, I am digging it.

Glad everyone is enjoying the pics. I was fortunate to have seen this in person and outside!

Oh, and yes, the color looked fantastic in the sunlight...

The side of the new Z06 is damn sexy. Love the treatment of the rear intake and rockers and splitters.

Thanks for posting! Would you saw the photos accurately show the color of the car or did the color look better/worse in person?

Thanks!

Best,

Love the pearl nickel wheels with red calipers ( Yeah, I'm one of those who think black wheels are the easiest way to make a vette fugly).

Gene, the pics don't do the color justice. In the sunlight the metallic popped! It was really a great color. Wish the pics could show more! The pics make it look nice...see it in person and you are like WOW!

No reason for the senior citizens to complain about the ride height of this thing.....looks like you could clear a small child with it.

Couldn't disagree more. The pearl nickel wheels are beautiful and actually enhance the looks of the car rather than black wheels that just fade away into the background.
