[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.

[VIDEO] Kelley Blue Book's Reviews the Hot Corvette Z06

Kelley Blue Book is out with their review of the 2015 Corvette Z06 and the results are mixed. Actually, most of the review is very good news for Chevrolet as the car gets put through its paces and seems to deliver in every way. But at the end, we hear the overheating problem has reared its ugly head on what looks to be a mild 80 degree day in California.

It was back in May that we published one of our most popular stories so far in 2015. That story featured photos of Mary Barra’s 2015 Corvette Z06 Convertible at the Bowling Green Assembly Plant. Since then, we’ve been wondering when we would actually see General Motors’ CEO in the car and yesterday our prayers were finally answered.

Ms. Barra posted a photo of herself Saturday morning in the Black Z06 convertible which she’s nicknamed “The Beast” and then she joined 1.5 million automotive fans as she headed out for Saturday’s Woodward Dream Cruise.
