Preliminary 2016 Corvette Pricing Released - Z06 C7.R Edition's MSRP is $111,400


We found out this morning from National Corvette seller Mike Furman that some preliminary pricing has been announced for the 2016 Corvette Stingray and Z06. Full 2016 Corvette pricing is still expected later this month, but according to Mike, all Corvettes models will be receiving a $400 increase for the new year. We were actually expecting to see at least a $1,000 bump in price so only $400 is something we can live with.

[VIDEO] RallyCross in a C5 Corvette Z06


Remember that C5 Corvette Z06 that did a burnout so awesome that the brakes caught on fire? We figured Matt Einarsson was the owner of the car after seeing a couple more videos featuring the same C5 Z06s in his youtube timeline.

Matt reached out to us on our facebook page and gave us a heads up on another video featuring his Corvette Z06 in an SCCA sanctioned RallyCross – which is pretty much an autocross held on dirt. Matt shows no fear in driving his Z06 off-road and the car is more than capable in handling the terrain.

Nurburgring Lap Time for the C7 Corvette Z06 Completed and Video Coming Soon


How about some good news to share!

After two aborted attempts to record a hot lap on the 12.9 mile Nurburgring, the 2015 Corvette Z06 returned to Germany last month and was finally successful in getting a continuously-timed lap. Apparently, the team is more than happy with the lap time they got from the Z06 at the “Green Hell”.

That bit of news came directly from Corvette Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter who shared the tidbit of the completed lap during his weekly “Ask Tadge” question and answer posts on the Corvette Forum.

Tadge was asked about the design philosophy of the C7 Z06 vs the previous C6 Z06 which was lighter and was considered more of track car than the generously appointed C7 version. The answer is quite detailed and you can read the full reply there. But here is what Tadge said about the Nurburgring time:

[PICS] Only in Texas Will You Find A Corvette Z06 with a Gun Rack


Ah Texas. Where everything is done a bit bigger and bolder than anywhere else in our country also extends to how Corvette owners exercise their 2nd Amendment rights. Normally, gun racks and rifles are associated with pickup trucks but what do you do when your daily driver is C5 Corvette Z06? Simple. You take your firepower with you!

[VIDEO] 2015 Corvette Z06 Testing Again on the Nurburgring


Despite all the awards and accolades that the Corvette Z06 has received since its arrival in 2014, there has been something missing from its marketing toolbox that has become almost a requirement for any sports car that wants to play on the world stage – a timed lap at the Nurburgring.

Hopefully, we’ll be able to put a checkbox next to that item in the coming weeks as it looks like the boys from Detroit are back in Germany for another try.

[VIDEO] Watch this Corvette Z06 Crash into a Tree


I just don’t know what to say about today’s featured video from CorvetteVideos.TV.

Putting the hammer down on public roads can be a scary thing when the nail is a 650-horsepower Corvette Z06. This wide open throttle run starts off okay with the Corvette’s beefy Michelins keeping the car the straight and true. But the second she starts to wiggle, it all goes downhill from there. Or should I say into the trees?
