One of the Fastest C6 Corvette Track Cars in SoCal is for Sale

C6 Corvette Z06 Track Car Front Corner

Corvette Z06 weighs 2,660 pounds, packs 625 horsepower and features a high performance suspension setup.

While the C6 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 comes from the factory ready to storm around a road course, there is plenty of room via the aftermarket. The problem is deciding which components to upgrade and which companies to use when buying those upgrades, especially for a novice racer who has never built a track car before. Of course, that novice can buy a track car that has already been built, but how does he or she know that it has been built correctly?

Fortunately, “about2throwup” posted a C6 Corvette Z06 track car for sale on the forum and in addition to the modification list and pictures, the OP included track videos with lap times that prove that it is built to perform.

He also included a pair of in-car track videos along with the images here and many more that you can see in the sale thread.

Track Beast

If you are looking for a Corvette Z06 to serve as a dedicated track car, this is the machine for you. It is street legal and passed California emission testing, but let’s be honest; this car is gutted and few people are going to want to drive a gutted car on the street with any regularity. However, as track cars go, there is no question that this C6 is the real deal.

Of course, the aerodynamics package is a bit much for most people in terms of a street car, but the bottom line with this Corvette is that it is a track beast that can be driven on the street, even in areas with strict emission laws. However, putting street-worthiness aside, this Z06 is a badass machine. From the engine to the suspension to the weight reduction, this Chevy supercar has been modified to dominate at the track and as the videos below show, it does just that.

C6 Corvette Z06 High Front

This Corvette is listed for $42,749, but the OP will consider offers. That is not a small chunk of change for a track car, but for someone who wants a C6 Z06 that can set lap records on the track and be driven on the road, this might be a dream car.

A lifetime automotive expert, diehard Dodge fan, and respected auto journalist for over 10 years, Patrick Rall is highly experienced in the automotive world. He has clocked in time as an auto mechanic, longtime drag racer and now auto journalist who contributes to nearly a dozen popular websites dedicated to fellow enthusiasts.

“Before I was old enough to walk, my dad was taking me to various types of racing events, from local drag racing to the Daytona 500,” says Rall. “He owned a repair shop and had a variety of performance cars when I was young, but by the time I was 16, he was ready to build me my first drag car: a 1983 Dodge Mirada that ran low 12s. I spent 10 years traveling around the country, racing with my dad by my side. While we live in different areas of the country, my dad still drag races at 80 years old in the car that he built when I was 16. Meanwhile, I race other vehicles, including my 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and my 1972 Dodge Demon 340.

“Although I went to college for accounting, my time in my dad’s shop growing up allowed me the knowledge to spend time working as a mechanic before getting my accounting degree, at which point I worked in the office of a dealership group,” adds Rall. “While I was working in the accounting world, I continued racing and taking pictures of cars at the track. Over time, I began showing off those pictures online and that led to my writing.

“Ten years ago, I left the accounting world to become a full-time automotive writer and I am living proof that if you love what you do, you will never ‘work’ a day in your life. I love covering the automotive industry and everything involved with the job. I was fortunate to turn my love of the automotive world into a hobby that led to an exciting career, with my past of working as a mechanic and as an accountant in the automotive world provides me with a unique perspective of the industry.

“My experience drag racing for more than 20 years coupled with a newfound interest in road racing over the past decade allows me to push performance cars to their limit, while my role as a horse stable manager gives me vast experience towing and hauling with all of the newest trucks on the market today.

“Being based on Detroit, I never miss the North American International Auto Show, the Woodward Dream Cruise and Roadkill Nights, along with spending plenty of time raising hell on Detroit’s Woodward Avenue with the best muscle car crowd in the world.”
