[ACCIDENT] C7 Corvette Z06 Crashes at the Race Track

There is no doubt that the 2015 Corvette Z06 is the most capable performance Corvette that Chevrolet has ever made. But to really experience the full bandwidth of performance available, owners are encouraged to take their car to the track. And there lies the conundrum… While the Corvette Z06 may be ready for the track, sometimes the driver isn’t which is why we have the photos of a Corvette Z06 that went off the track and into the weeds at a recent SCCA event.

[PIC] 2016 Corvette's New Carbon Fiber Visible Hood

We first saw the return of RPO B92 at the National Corvette Museum’s Bash event where it was on display on the 2016 Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition. But that hood was covered with a Jake graphic and with the car roped off and parked indoors, it was hard to get a really good look at it let alone a good photo. Now we have some new pics from our friends at Kerbeck Corvette showing the B92 hood on a new 2016 Corvette Z06.

[VIDEO] 2016 Corvette's Front Facing Parking Assist Curb Cameras in Action

Want to know why Corvette owners always back their cars into parking spaces? It’s so they don’t crunch the front bumper or splitter on the parking curb. On a Corvette Z06 with the visible Carbon Fiber splitter, that crunch can cost you $3,995! With newer Corvettes, owners can use the rear backup camera to assist with parking when backing in, but sometimes backing in isn’t always practical.

You spoke and the Corvette Team answered by adding one of the most asked-for options to the 2016 Corvette – the addition of two front facing parking assist cameras which will help guide owners into parking spots by showing the distance to curb, garage wall or other obstacles.

The situation with the C7 Corvette Z06’s Nurburgring lap time is quickly becoming a fiasco for Chevrolet.

Autoweek’s rumor yesterday from an anonymous source proclaiming the Z06’s lap time to be 7:08 has supposedly been debunked by another anonymous source from a competing media outlet, Road & Track.

[RUMOR] Did the 2015 Corvette Z06 Lap the Nurburgring in 7:08?

Ever since Corvette’s Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter said the 2015 Corvette Z06 had completed a timed lap at the famous Nurburgring track in Germany, Corvette fans have been waiting (and waiting) for Chevrolet’s marketing department to release the video of the run. In the meantime, the incredible vacuum of silence has been filled with rumors and speculation about the 650 hp supercar’s time.
