If you’re looking for the ultimate 2016 Z06/Z07 Corvette, this might be the one.
It won’t come cheap, but then quality usually doesn’t.
ESOTERIC is offering its marketing/show vehicle for the 2016 season on eBay, with a starting bid of $90,000. This is the second listing for the highly polished Corvette Z06 as it was previously listed with a starting bid of $115,000 and “Buy it Now” price of $132,995.
While those figures might sound high, ESOTERIC says it would cost more than $150,000 to replicate this Z06.
Of course, ESOTERIC is known for its paint refinement services, and this Corvette has been treated to the works.
“You will not find another Corvette with OEM paint that looks this good, or is protected to this level. It’s not even close,” the eBay listing says.
ESOTERIC says it increased paint image quality by more than 95 percent, as measured on its $4,000 DOI meter. Two before-and-after readings show a “huge difference” in the paint image quality.
“You have not seen OEM-polished paint that looks like this,” ESOTERIC says.
Not only that, but the car’s full front end, rocker panels, front splitter, side skirts, A-pillars, mirrors, fuel cap, rear quarter panels, and rear wheel impact areas are all protected by SunTek paint protection film. “This install was fully custom, with much of the front end disassembled so that we could tuck in all edges,” ESOTERIC says.
They also removed the Competition Seats and fully polished the painted back sides and coated them with Gyeon, and all interior fabrics, exterior painted surfaces, HRE and OEM wheels, brake calipers and exhaust tips were coated with Gyeon protection.
The 100+ hour detail was featured in a video we posted back in February 2016:
The car also came pretty much fully loaded from the factory, with the 7-speed manual transmission, 3LZ interior, Carbon Fiber Roof, and Z07 package. They also added a $5,770 exhaust system from Akrapovic that retains sound management adjustments.
Best of all, they even upped the power with a Lingenfelter 720hp package, with a Certificate of Authenticity included.
ESOTERIC concludes: “Designed to be an award-winning show car, this Corvette is also ready and prepared for the track. Not only does this ESOTERIC Edition Corvette look better than any other you will find, but it is properly protected so that you can drive it in any condition without worries. Just a simple and quick cleanup will have this car winning at any show.”
While the price isn’t cheap, you have to admit this is one very impressive Z06.
