If you’re one of the fortunate people to actually get to buy a Z06 but still aren’t satisfied with its 650 horsepower and 650 ft-lb of torque, then you just might want to call Mr. Hennessey.
The 2015 Corvette Z06 was introduced at the 2014 North American International Auto Show back in January which seems like a lifetime ago. But on Monday, a bevy of auto magazines finally released their long anticipated reviews of the most powerful and track capable Corvette that Chevrolet has ever produced.
One of reviewers of the new 650 horsepower super car was Motor Trend’s Carlos Lago who filmed the experience for MT’s Ignition webcast which appears on their YouTube channel.
Due to the long lead times magazines require to go to print, writers for the “buff-books” were first in line to test drive the all new 2015 Corvette Z06 around Road Atlanta back in October. Now that the embargo has ended, here’s a round-up of list of links to some of their reviews.
If a new Corvette Z06 is on your holiday wish list, you may want to give want to give the jolly old elf (no, not your uncle Leo, Santa Claus) a helping hand. A Z06 is tough to wrap and might not easily fit into Santa’s sleigh, not to mention giving Dancer, Prancer et al. a tough flight. Rather than ask Santa, the National Corvette Museum has better idea for you.
Sure it’s Monday but it’s a short week with the Thanksgiving holiday. So now it’s our turn to give thanks to Chevrolet for the second generation of Corvettes produced from 1963-1967 with our Midyear Monday gallery. Here’s a random photo gallery of 28 Midyear Corvettes to kick off the week.
How much horsepower does your Corvette have? 300? 400? 500 or more? That’s cute. Check out this insane white C6 ZR1 which is being billed at the world’s most powerful ZR1. At 1,385hp with nitrous we’re not going to argue with that claim. The modded LS9 still throws down 1,075hp even without the spray.
The Marvel Comics Universe seems to have a thing for Corvettes. First there was the Black Widow’s Corvette Stingray from Captain America: The Winter Soldier. And then when Agents of SHIELD came to FOX, one of the stars of the show is Agent Coulson’s classic red Corvette named Lola.
Now another Agent of SHIELD will be driving a Corvette Stingray, but not on TV. Actress Ming-Na Wen who plays Agent Melinda May on the show was just surprised with a red Corvette Stingray from her husband on her birthday.
For the second time since 2011, Danny Popp and his 2003 Corvette Z06 are the overall winner of the 2014 Ultimate Street Car Invitational sponsored Nov. 8-9 for the first time at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway by OPTIMA Batteries.
This time, Popp won the title by less than a point over Brandon Ranvek and his 2006 Mitsubishi Evo.
