One of the best performance bargains from Corvette’s storied history is the C5 Z06 that were produced from 2001 to 2004. Starting with 385 hp in 2001, the model would eventually grow to offer 405 hp from its LS6 small-block V8.
In 2001, Chevrolet produced 5,773 examples for the Z06 model, yet the model was constrained as only five of the nine exterior colors were offered on the Z06. Those of you who love the C5Zs know that the unicorn of the run are the 352 examples produced in 2001 in rare Speedway White which represents just 6.1% of production from the year. Speedway White would be unavailable for Z06 buyers in 2002 and 2003, and in 2004 the color was dropped altogether with the introduction of Arctic White, which also wasn’t available on the Z06. In fact, it wouldn’t be until 2007 when the Z06 model would be available again in White, and that year it was only offered on the 399 Ron Fellows Editions.
The chances of finding one of these 352 examples offered for sale are few and far in between, but we just came across a low-mileage example available out of Tennessee. The C5Z was posted on Facebook in the Corvette Buy Sell & Trade Group and we have the details for you here:
This 2001 Corvette Z06 in Speedway White comes with a Black/Red leather interior and Black aluminum wheels. There are only 49,688 miles showing on the odometer and all C5 Z06s come with a 6-speed manual transmission. The Corvette looks very clean with the only exterior blemish being the minor curb rash to the underside of the front bumper cover. Inside, there a piece of plastic trim missing from the driver’s door grab. Otherwise, everything else is in good shape with “no unusual sounds/odors etc…”
The original poster of the ad says this is one of several being sold from a Tennessee collector who is downsizing due to an upcoming move. He says the Corvette was purchased from a celebrity collection that was sold in Texas. You can see the car currently with advance notice in Centerville, TN.
The ad for the 2001 Corvette Z06 in Arctic White was posted on September 29th and the car is being offered for $29,000. If you are interested in this rare Corvette for sale, you can call Chris at 615.499.0380 for inspection/purchase information.
