This 2006 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 starts with a beautiful and loaded
low-mileage speed machine. But it doesn't take long to see that
there have been all the right investments in everything from power
to style that take this instant classic and gives it a dose of
irresistible individual flair.
LeMans Blue is a terrific factory color. It's a deep metallic blue
that adds so much extra luster that it was absolutely worth the
extra money to get this option. The color was only offered for a
few years, and this is 1 of 671 Z06s made in 2006. And since this
example has averaged less than 775 miles annually, it still looks
fantastic today. Not only does this color recall the traditions of
the Stingray, but it also is a nice connection to racing (remember
the C6 was dominating its GT classic at LeMans during this era.)
And this car is much more than just stunning race-ready paint. The
Z06's array of scoops and spoilers control the air as it flows over
the car and feeds it to coolers and brakes for serious track use.
Of course, there also pieces that don't make this go faster, like
the upgraded polished wheels, carbon fiber pillar wrap, upgraded
tail lights, and deeply tinted windows... but they sure do give
this contender the added flair it deserves.
The interior continues the well-deserved upgrades in style. The
door panels, dash, and center console have all been specially color
matched to the exterior for a unique and premium touch. And because
this has been upgraded to LED blue lighting, the whole interior
seems to glow in a coordinating blue. It makes for a thoughtful
packaging that only adds to the feeling of a loaded sports car. You
have desirable modern luxuries such as dual zone climate control,
heated seats, power seats, power windows, power locks, keyless
entry & ignition, cruise control, and an AM/FM/CD/XM infotainment
display with Bose speakers and sat nav. A modern classic also means
modern safety features such as dual front airbags, side airbags,
and ABS. The supple leather bucket seats are heated, and yours even
power adjusts to the ideal position. The driver also gets full Z06
branded instrumentation with backlit dials, a grippy
leather-wrapped steering wheel, and heads-up display.
The engine bay gets a similar treatment to the interior where the
main pieces have been specially color-matched to make this an even
more individualized machine. This also helps to integrate upgrades
like the SLP Blackwing intake. The core of the special Z06 package
is its original all-aluminum 427 cubic-inch V8. This is a magic
displacement to Chevy fans, and this motor doesn't disappoint. The
LS7 is a modern fuel-injected powerhouse that can be tame in
everyday situations when needed. But the moment the road opens up,
the six-speed transmission lets you downshift into serious power.
In fact, not only does this one inhale deeper, but it also has a
full upgraded exhaust system with headers. We even have the dyno
sheet showing about a 15 percent increase in horsepower over the
Z06's already street-eating figures. The full package was made to
be a serious machine. Chevy shaved precious pounds on the body and
chassis by substituting lighter materials than the base car, and
components like the transmission and differential have their own
coolers for track use. Massive drilled four-wheel disc brakes,
adaptive power steering, and an adaptive fully independent
suspension make this a truly awesome sports car.
The sale comes with the window sticker, factory buildsheet, owner's
manual, service manual, dyno sheet, and car cover. This is the
perfect balance of low mileage collectible and individually
upgraded supercar. Don't miss this awesome Z06, call today!
