Corvette Z06 Competing for Road and Track's 2016 Performance Car of the Year

Will the Corvette be able to continue its winning ways in Road & Track’s Performance Car of the Year competition?

The 2014 Corvette Stingray Z51 captured the magazine’s first contest in 2013.

To be chosen for the contest, a car had to have significant updates over the previous year’s car (leaving out the BMW M3, Alfa 4C, and Nissan GT-R) and had to be at the top of the performance bracket (leaving out cars like the Mazda Miata). In addition, manufacturers of the Lamborghini Huracan and McLaren 675LT said they didn’t want to compete this year.

[VIDEO] Corvette Z06 Breaks During Motor Trend's Best Driver's Car Test

It’s happened again.

Motor Trend was provided with a Corvette Z06 to test and compare for the magazine’s annual Best Driver’s Car feature and once again the Corvette that Chevrolet provided for the test was not up to par. So much so that in the magazine article, Motor Trend ranked the car dead last with a DNF (did not finish).

Now there is video showing MT’s test driver Randy Pobst driving the Corvette Z06 at Monterey’s Laguna Seca Raceway as part of the review and you can see his reaction as the Corvette goes from world class sports car to dog in less than one lap.

[VIDEO] Top Speed Corvette Z06 Run on the German Autobahn

Want to see a Corvette Z06 running at top speed on the German Autobahn? Of course you do! The Performance Data Recorder shows us that this driver reached speeds of 320 Km/h which translates to about 198 mph! Unlike the USA, the German traffic sees a faster car coming up behind and moves to the right.

The Corvette Z06 looks to be providing an effortless drive and seems quite tame in normal traffic. But then we hear the exhaust open up and another quick sprint unfolds before us.
