Driving a real-wheel drive 650 hp super car in crappy weather can be done if you follow the rules and play it safe. Unfortunately for this brand new Corvette Z06 with less than 100 miles on the odometer, the owner learned those rules the hard way and now the car sits at the dealer waiting for repairs.
Late Model Racecraft shows off this new Corvette Z06 that was recently in the tuner’s shop for their Stage 2 package.

Back a few years ago, I was restoring my dad’s 1970 Impala and had taken it to a friend’s house to have the motor rebuilt.
The paint was rusty and the interior was musty, but I had splurged for $1,819 worth of new tires and wheels just to spruce up the old girl.
While my car was there, though, in the dark of night, out in the country of North Georgia, somebody jacked up the car and stole my tires and wheels, leaving the first car I ever drove by myself (at age 16) sitting on top of concrete blocks.
I thought that was a depressing sight.
But then I saw this posting on Corvette7 and changed my mind.
Some say he is terrified of Scouts and he spends his spare time catching fish with his tongue or foraging for wolves in the woods. All we know is Auto Evolution says this woman is the wife of the Stig, the mysterious white-cloaked driver on the British motoring television show Top Gear.
Dale Martin says he recently took these photos of who he claims is Mrs.The Stig at the North Star Dragway in Texas.
The latest monthly sales report from General Motors was released this morning which contains the delivery statistics of Corvettes in the month of January, 2015.
Last month, Chevrolet sold 2,127 Corvettes which was a decrease of -5.9% from the 2,261 Corvettes sold during January 2014. Since this is the beginning of the calendar year, those stats for Calendar Year to Date sales are the same as well.
A new 2015 Corvette Z06 was destroyed and its driver was pronounced dead at the scene following a fatal accident in Arkansas over the weekend.
Police say the car was traveling at a high rate of speed when the driver lost control. The Z06 went off the road and hit some trees, ejecting both the driver and the passenger.
When Tadge Juechter and his crew were busy coming up with the 2015 Corvette Z06, they were probably hoping for somebody just like Gene Sanchez Leeds to climb behind the wheel.
You see, Mr. Leeds does “ridiculous things with Corvettes,” as he puts it in his blog post on Road and Track.
Put another way, he doesn’t park his Corvettes on a pedestal, instead preferring to enjoy them, and enjoy them HIS way.
Team Corvette has a Nurburgring problem.
After testing the new Corvette Z06 at the famous 12.9 mile track in Germany last year, circumstances which include a crash and rainy weather stopped the team from laying down a complete timed lap. Instead of staying in Germany and making it a priority, the team left town and that has ceded the conversation to others.
If that 650 horsepower Corvette Z06 isn’t powerful enough for you, you might want to check out this upgrade from the folks at Late Model Racecraft.
They’ve just released a video showing this beautiful Velocity Yellow Z06 that they have upgraded to coax out 743 wheel horsepower, making it what might be the most powerful C7 Corvette Z06 tested on a dyno so far.
