The Gumball 3000 road rally must be kicking off soon as all of a sudden I keep hearing about this monster C7 Corvette Z06 that’s part of the group. Not only is it a C7 Corvette Z06, it’s being described as a Z06 C7.R Edition that with some mods makes 925 bhp.
Although the Z06 is wrapped in some crazy checkerboard pattern that makes you think it’s a manufacturers car, we did see it one of the doors open and the door jams are yellow inside. While that doesn’t make it a C7.R edition, none of the other design cues are viewable so we’ll just have to take their word for it.
The Gumball 3000 is a luxury-oriented 3000 mile automotive road rally and after a quick trip to the Gumball 3000 website, we learned this year’s route begins in Dublin and will end in Bucharest.
Here’s a couple of videos showing the Corvette Z06 doing a burnout and then you can hear that monster rumble from the exhaust:
You can bet we’ll be seeing (and hearing) more about this Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition as it roams through Europe as part of the 2016 Gumball 3000 road rally.
