Alfa Romeo Just Released a Nurburgring time for a Sedan.  Can We Get the Corvette Z06's Time Now?

Did you hear about the latest Nurburgring ring time recently released by an automotive manufacturer? No, it’s not the time for the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 which put down its laps in May, prior to a ban on manufacturer lap times. It was an Alfa Romeo Giulia Sedan which recently made headlines with a 7:39 time around the 12.9 mile Nordschleife.

Alfa Romeo released the time as well as some other performance specs during last week’s opening of the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show.

So can we please have our video, press release and most important, the Nurburgring lap time for the Corvette Z06? Pretty Please?

We’ve wondered if Chevrolet would ever add an electric motor to a Corvette to increase horsepower.

Well, someone already beat them to the punch. At the Battery Show 2015 in Novi, Mich., the Genovation GXE all-electric vehicle based on a C6 Corvette Z06 made its public debut.

This is no Volt, either.

[PICS] Forgiato's 800-HP Widebody Corvette Z06 with Custom Red Wheels

We’ve been documenting Forgiato’s love affair with the C7 Corvette since the beginning when a widebody Stingray was built for the 2013 SEMA show. Over the last two years, we’ve seen about a dozen different versions of the widebody Stingray built in all kinds of colors and wheel selections.

Now that Chevy is building their own “widebody” in the form of the Corvette Z06, we wondered what Forgiato would have in store for the 650 horsepower super car. As these pictures show, we are not disappointed.

Car and Driver just held their annual Lightning Lap competition for 2015 and according to the results, the 2015 Corvette Z06 not only won its class, but dominated the entire competition by finishing fastest overall. Not only that, the Corvette Z06 was so fast that in the nine years of Car and Driver’s Lightning Laps, only one other car has finished faster.

GeigerCars Adds Power and Carbon Fiber to the C7 Corvette Z06

We’ve always been impressed with the work that comes from German tuner GeigerCars who specialize in tuning American cars, but their latest work on a C7 Corvette Z06 may be among their best yet. The stock 650 horsepower Corvette is already a fantastic blank canvas straight from Bowling Green, but check out Geiger’s power upgrades and the beautiful use of carbon fiber over the car as well.

During its first year of production, the C7 Z06 exceeded expectations and nearly 9,000 examples of the 650 hp supercharged Corvette exist. So for owners looking to add a little personalization to their rides, opting for a set of custom wheels may be the answer.

HRE Wheels just wrapped up a photoshoot with a Daytona Orange Sunrise Corvette Z06 wearing their new RS100M custom wheels and the results are pretty amazing.
