[ACCIDENT] C7 Corvette Z06 Crashes at the Race Track


There is no doubt that the 2015 Corvette Z06 is the most capable performance Corvette that Chevrolet has ever made. But to really experience the full bandwidth of performance available, owners are encouraged to take their car to the track. And there lies the conundrum… While the Corvette Z06 may be ready for the track, sometimes the driver isn’t which is why we have the photos of a Corvette Z06 that went off the track and into the weeds at a recent SCCA event.

The situation with the C7 Corvette Z06’s Nurburgring lap time is quickly becoming a fiasco for Chevrolet.

Autoweek’s rumor yesterday from an anonymous source proclaiming the Z06’s lap time to be 7:08 has supposedly been debunked by another anonymous source from a competing media outlet, Road & Track.

[RUMOR] Did the 2015 Corvette Z06 Lap the Nurburgring in 7:08?


Ever since Corvette’s Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter said the 2015 Corvette Z06 had completed a timed lap at the famous Nurburgring track in Germany, Corvette fans have been waiting (and waiting) for Chevrolet’s marketing department to release the video of the run.

When Chevrolet first introduced the 2016 Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition at the Corvette Museum’s Bash in April, they naturally showed the Coupe version in new Corvette Racing Yellow. But if you read the release notes (or watched our video), you would know that the limited-edition salute to Corvette Racing’s C7.R was also available in Convertible form, and yes Batman, it comes in Black.

At the 2015 Bloomington Gold Corvette show at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Chevrolet showed off their first Black Convertible Z06 C7.R Edition. Thanks to these photos from Travis Raczynski and our friend Corvette Conti who brought these to our attention, we’re able to share the dark side of the new limited edition Corvette.
