Some Corvette accidents are the result of driver error while others are caused by careless drivers. This Corvette appears to have been claimed by a mechanical failure. The driver of the red C6 Z06 walked away last week after his car lost the right rear wheel and rolled over in northern Pennsylvania.
One of the hallmarks of the new 2015 Corvette Z06 and the C7.R Corvette race car is that they were developed together utilizing the lessons learned from the C6 Corvette and the C6.R race car.
In a new video by Chevrolet, Corvette Racing driver Tommy Milner and Corvette’s Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter talk about the transfer of technology from the racing program to the production Corvette.
With all the attention given to the outstanding C7 Corvette these days, the C5 seems to have taken a back seat in the public’s eye.
But not everyone has given up on the fifth generation 1997-2004 Corvette.
Take the owner of this C5 over in Greece, for example, who apparently had all the money and desire to create the lightest version of his car that is humanly possible, hiring Carbon Fiber Customs to create all new body panels out of carbon fiber.
It should come as no surprise to Chevrolet enthusiasts that their favorite cars are among the leaders in yet another performance category.
Autoblog just came out with a listing of vehicles that have the best torque-to-weight ratios, broken down according to price, and Chevy dominated the action.
Here’s another brief video of the Laguna Blue 2015 Corvette Z06 testing at the Nurburgring. Unconfirmed reports say this Corvette Z06 is rocking the ‘ring with an 8-speed automatic transmission.
What we do know is that the 650 hp Corvette Z06 makes some big sound as it flies around the track.
Once again Chevrolet has chosen “The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auction”, Barrett-Jackson’s Scottsdale flagship event to offer their first retail production 2015 Corvette Z06 Convertible. Over the last several years Barrett-Jackson has been Chevrolet’s choice to showcase the crown jewel of their model line-up by offering VIN 001 of a new model Corvette to benefit various charities. According to Gary Bennett, vice president of consignments at Barrett Jackson, the beneficiary of the 2015 Z06 Convertible proceeds will be the United Way of Michigan.
Chevy released the amazing 0-60 time of 2.95 seconds for the 2015 Corvette Z06, the fastest time ever for a GM production car.
Equally as amazing is how quickly the Z06 can go from 60 to 0 mph – in 99.6 feet with the Z07 package!
Brembo is the brains behind that stellar performance, and the company recently released a neat video explaining how its carbon ceramic brake system does the trick.
2015 Corvette Z06 reportedly armed with the 8-Speed Automatic Transmission was spotted testing on the Nurburgring.
We were pretty excited to hear that Chevrolet was testing the Corvette Z06 on the Nurburgring but after the seeing the yellow Corvette Z06 with the Z07 Performance Package had crashed, our hopes were dashed for a flying lap.
But now we know that Chevy took a Laguna Blue Corvette Z06 for testing on the Nurburgring as well, and according to unsubstantiated reports, this one is armed with the Stage 2 aerodynamics package along with the new 8-speed automatic.
We’ll keep checking back with Bridge2Gantry for any more updates.
