To truly experience the capabilities of the all new Corvette Z06, it helps to take a ride along with a professional race car driver. Tommy Milner, who co-drives the #4 Corvette C7.R for Corvette Racing in the TUDOR United Sports Car Championship Series is no stranger to going fast on the track at Road Atlanta and now we get to see a complete hot lap with Tommy driving the all new 2015 Corvette Z06 production car.
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.
