[VIDEO] 2015 Corvette Z06 Testing Again on the Nurburgring


Despite all the awards and accolades that the Corvette Z06 has received since its arrival in 2014, there has been something missing from its marketing toolbox that has become almost a requirement for any sports car that wants to play on the world stage – a timed lap at the Nurburgring.

Hopefully, we’ll be able to put a checkbox next to that item in the coming weeks as it looks like the boys from Detroit are back in Germany for another try.


It’s been a hard week for Torch Red Corvette Z06s. Following Friday’s release of a video showing a brand spanking new Corvette Z06 leaving the roadway and crashing into trees, Jalopnik’s Opposite Lock brings us a story of another Torch Red Corvette Z06 meeting its demise over the weekend during a track event at Laguna Seca Raceway in Monterey. At least with this Z06, the crash happened on the track while doing what the Corvette Z06 was made to do.

[VIDEO] Watch this Corvette Z06 Crash into a Tree


I just don’t know what to say about today’s featured video from CorvetteVideos.TV.

Putting the hammer down on public roads can be a scary thing when the nail is a 650-horsepower Corvette Z06. This wide open throttle run starts off okay with the Corvette’s beefy Michelins keeping the car the straight and true. But the second she starts to wiggle, it all goes downhill from there. Or should I say into the trees?

[VIDEO] Jeff Gordon Drives the 2015 Corvette Z06 Indy 500 Pace Car


Most Memorial Day weekends, NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon is found preparing for the Coca-Cola 600 at the Charlotte Motor Speedway. This Memorial Day weekend, he’ll be pulling the infamous “double” with a bit of a twist. While some drivers have attempted to drive both the Indianapolis 500 and the Coca-Cola 600 on the same day, Gordon will be in Indianapolis this Sunday to drive the 2015 Corvette Z06 pace car before jetting off to Charlotte to compete in the NASCAR Sprint Cup 600 mile race later in the day.

[PICS] Here is General Motors CEO Mary Barra's New 2015 Corvette Z06 Convertible


It’s not every day that the Bowling Green Assembly Plant receives an order to make a car for the company CEO, but this week the workers from UAW Local 2164 assembled a 2015 Black Corvette Z06 Convertible that will be shipped to GM’s headquarters in Detroit for General Motors Chief Executive Officer Mary Barra.

[VIDEO] Watch this Lady-Driven Corvette Z06 Hit the 10s at the Dragstrip


The perception of the Corvette as an old mans car has been out there for a while now but the new C7 Corvette has gone a long way to debunk that. Now, not only are women buying the new Corvettes, but they are taking them to track and breaking stereotypes there as well.

Today’s featured video from CorvetteVideos.TV features a female-owned 2015 Corvette Z06 with a stage 1 aero kit and the new 8-speed automatic. Watch the Laguna Blue Z06 with the vanity plate “SHE WNZ” make multiple passes in the 10s at Gateway Motorsports Park.

Each week, Criswell Chevrolet’s Mike Furman delivers new Corvette Stingrays and Z06s to his customers who come from all parts of the country to work with the nation’s top Corvette seller.

In this week’s dispatch, Mike highlights some of the returning customers who have bought their third or fourth Corvette from him during his 38 years of selling Corvettes.

Chevrolet has Produced Over 8,200 Corvette Z06s in 2015

At the National Corvette Museum’s Bash, we learned that 8,206 Corvette Z06s have been produced so far in 2015. That count is as of April 22nd, so by now that number has probably grown in the few days it’s taken us to digest this information.

Regardless of the Corvette Z06’s 2.95 second 0-60 mph time or a 1.2g lateral grip, when you get down to it, the most important number is how many can GM sell. Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter called 2015 “The Year of the Z06″. Now we know why!
