This morning HorsepowerKings got our hopes up by claiming the 2015 Corvette Z06 completed a 6:59.13 lap on the Nürburgring. That would be great if it were true … but it’s not.
Anyone who knows anything about Barrett-Jackson Corvettes had to figure NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick would be taking home the first retail model of the convertible Z06.
When asked by a colleague if the C7 Corvette makes the design of the C6 look dated, my response was, “Absolutely, unequivocally, yes and in a major way.” I went on to say that anyone who disagrees either owns a C6, or should have their eyes checked.
George Clooney, Jay Leno, Paul McCartney, Robert Downey Jr., Springsteen, Bon Jovi … the list goes on and on. That’s why our brand-new how-to team has compiled a comprehensive list of celebrities who drive Corvettes.
One of Corvette Forum’s most beloved forum members, “Phantasms”, a.k.a. Gene Sanchez Leeds, will be daily-driving his 2015 Corvette Z06 all this winter. Grab your pitchforks, or popcorn.
