Chevrolet dealer and NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick was at the National Corvette Museum on Tuesday to take delivery of two new 2015 Corvette Z06s. The two Corvette Z06s were VIN 001 and VIN 003 and not only does Rick take delivery of the first Corvette Z06, his Corvette Z06 is also the first Z06 to be delivered to a customer, courtesy of the R8C Museum Delivery Program.
To truly experience the capabilities of the all new Corvette Z06, it helps to take a ride along with a professional race car driver. Tommy Milner, who co-drives the #4 Corvette C7.R for Corvette Racing in the TUDOR United Sports Car Championship Series is no stranger to going fast on the track at Road Atlanta and now we get to see a complete hot lap with Tommy driving the all new 2015 Corvette Z06 production car.
It appears that Chevrolet is happy with the start of production of the C7 Corvette Z06 – so much so that that customer cars have started to ship to customers from the assembly plant in Bowling Green.
When the Stingray was launched last year, Chevrolet delayed the shipping as the automaker pursued an aggressive quality assessment regiment to insure everything was just right and some customer cars were held well over a month. Now, just three weeks after the start of production, the all-new Corvette Z06s are on their way to dealers and the Corvette Museum for customer delivery.
If you’re one of the fortunate people to actually get to buy a Z06 but still aren’t satisfied with its 650 horsepower and 650 ft-lb of torque, then you just might want to call Mr. Hennessey.
The 2015 Corvette Z06 was introduced at the 2014 North American International Auto Show back in January which seems like a lifetime ago. But on Monday, a bevy of auto magazines finally released their long anticipated reviews of the most powerful and track capable Corvette that Chevrolet has ever produced.
One of reviewers of the new 650 horsepower super car was Motor Trend’s Carlos Lago who filmed the experience for MT’s Ignition webcast which appears on their YouTube channel.
For the second time since 2011, Danny Popp and his 2003 Corvette Z06 are the overall winner of the 2014 Ultimate Street Car Invitational sponsored Nov. 8-9 for the first time at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway by OPTIMA Batteries.
This time, Popp won the title by less than a point over Brandon Ranvek and his 2006 Mitsubishi Evo.
Yesterday we posted a video of several Corvettes Z06s at Road Atlanta and while many will end up at the track now and then, most will be driven on the street. Here’s an Arctic White Corvette Z06 hitting the streets!
The Corvette Z06 is just at home with casual driving on the streets as it is on the track. Here’s a 2015 Corvette Z06 in Arctic White with the Z07 Performance Package cruising around on the streets.
