If you happened to be at the National Corvette Museum’s 20th Anniversary Celebration in late August, then you probably saw the stunning Laguna Blue 2015 Z06 in the museum.

Wow, what a car!

Well, now a Corvette Forum member named [email protected] posted a bunch of great photos showing three of the Z06s undergoing last-minute suspension tuning.

We’re not surprised to see that they’re still testing the car with the introduction just weeks away as we understand the importance that Chevy places on its halo car being as perfect as possible.

Matt works for Van Bortel Chevrolet and was in Cambridge, Ohio taking delivery of a Corvette when he walked into the back parking lot of his hotel and saw Night Race Blue, Shark Gray, and Laguna Blue Z06s staring him in the face. It was his first encounter in person with a Z06 and he came away mightily impressed.

Matt says he talked to one of the engineers driving one of the cars and he said he was working on the suspension components, pointing out that there are a lot of nice roads they like to use for tests in that part of Ohio.

Matt is right when he says in his post the photos don’t do the cars justice. At the museum, we stood with our mouth open admiring what we consider to be the ultimate Corvette (at least until Chevy’s engineers always manage to top themselves the next year!).

Three items to check out in the photo gallery below. One of the options we noticed right away on the Night Race Blue Z06 was the addition of the headlight washers which means they’re also testing a European export spec’d vehicle. Secondly, take a look at the spoiler photo as it appears to be different than any we’ve seen previously. And finally, the engineer in the photos with the Shark Gray Z06 is none other than Jim Mero, which all makes sense as his focus is generally suspension and ride tuning.
