Vehicle Description

The C5 revived the Z06 name after more than four decades, and just like its predecessors, this was all about awakening the beast. Adding power and saving weight, this 2003 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 was the quickest 'Vette to date. So when you can find one in such good care and at a great price, this 400+ hp speed machine is a huge deal.


We all know the legend of the Z06 by now. Chevy started with their lightest and strongest Corvette configuration, the FRC (Fixed Roof Coupe). Then they discarded weight wherever they could, even including utilizing a thinner windshield. The result was the leanest and meanest Corvette to hit the streets. And so to have it born a slick black machine only reinforces its menacing attitude. Also, 2003 was the Corvette's golden anniversary, and so you want to keep a special car like this to the gold standard. That's why this is a two-owner coupe that has averaged less than 3,500 miles annually, and it comes with some great paperwork. From the fit of the panels, to the condition of the special double-five spoke special Z06 alloy wheels, it all tells you that any excitement in this ultra-hot Corvette was responsible fun.


All the black of the exterior gets you ready for an all-black interior. Low mileage means the leather on the bucket seats look great, the aggressive red Z06 stitching is still bold, and the overall condition presents like-new. This is loaded with all the best features, including a power driver's seat, dual zone climate control, power steering, power windows, power locks, keyless entry/alarm, power mirrors, cruise control, and a AM/FM/CD stereo system by Bose. Because this is a modern classic, it also means modern safety features such as dual airbags and anti-lock brakes. But what you'll really love the most is how much this is built to be a driver's machine. The shifter feels perfect in your right hand, and the head-up display means you never have to take your eyes off the road during performance driving.


You might have noticed how this car is black with hints of red both on the interior and exterior. Well, that color theme actually looks its best under the hood. The bold red covers signal the special LS6 motor. Its producing 405 horsepower in a later Z06 like this. To put that into perspective, that's eight percent MORE power than the King of the Hill C4 ZR1. It fires up with the ease of a modern fuel-injected motor, and its smoothness hides just how awesome the power really is. And you have complete control over all the sound and fury the V8 brings thanks to the six-speed manual transmission. As a true competition machine, the upgraded suspension package allows this fully independent setup to perform at its best during high speeds. And keeping everything in control is also the large four-wheel power disc brake package and Goodyear Eagle F1 performance tires.


The sale comes complete with the original window sticker, factory buildsheet, maintenance records, and 50th anniversary owner's manual packet. So if you're looking for a modern classic with serious performance and collectability, don't let this midnight hero slip away. Call today!!!
