[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

Via CorvetteVideos.TV

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.

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.
