When John Hennessey of Hennessey Performance talks, car enthusiasts listen.
Hennessey delivered a “State of the Aftermarket” speech during the recent SEMA Show in Las Vegas, and he offered some advice that anyone seriously interested in buying a 2015 Corvette Z06 would do well to consider.
The first of any Corvette model usually goes right to the top of the most collectible list, but it becomes particularly collectible when it’s a very limited production model, such as a Callaway C16.

The seventh-generation Corvette Stingray continues to attract attention from around the world.
The latest company to jump aboard the Stingray bandwagon has created a limited edition car it calls the AERO Edition C7 Corvette.
A company out of Luxembourg, ABBES Design, created the unique Stingray, which was built by MRT Engineered Performance and will be shown at the 2014 SEMA Show in Las Vegas.
With all the attention given to the outstanding C7 Corvette these days, the C5 seems to have taken a back seat in the public’s eye.
But not everyone has given up on the fifth generation 1997-2004 Corvette.
Take the owner of this C5 over in Greece, for example, who apparently had all the money and desire to create the lightest version of his car that is humanly possible, hiring Carbon Fiber Customs to create all new body panels out of carbon fiber.
A Duntov Turbo Corvette, one of the lesser-known Corvette models, is up for sale on eBay and is being offered at no reserve.
The Duntov Turbo Corvette was a collaboration between American Custom Industries (ACI) and Zora Arkus-Duntov following Zora’s retirement from General Motors in 1975. The Duntov Turbo Corvette should not be confused with the 1979 Turbo Corvette and the 1980 Turbo Corvette, both of which were General Motors prototypes. General Motors did not participate in either the design or the manufacture of the Duntov Turbo as both were the responsibility of ACI.
