2016 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Coupe
If Stingray is a comfortable bruiser and Z51 is a sharpened
all-rounder, Z06 spec makes the Corvette legitimately track-ready.
It brings grippier tires, stiffer suspension, further cooling for
the engine and brakes, downforce-generating aero, and stronger
stoppers all around. Ah, right, and an engine that seriously turns
up the heat over the standard Stingray's.
For consignment, a car made for street and track, the 2016 Corvette
Z06 coupe. This beauty, which is starting to emulate the supercars
of Euro fame, has a mere 12,748 original miles. In 2016, 40,689
Corvettes were produced, of which the Z06 package accounted for
28.4 percent. Our consignment is a 3LZ package which is not shabby.
Just get behind the wheel and I'll prove it to you!
This car cannot only be a world beating supercar example, it can
act as a well mannered easy to drive cruiser, lets call it speed
and swagger. Our eyes are all agog while perusing the hallowed
halls of CAM and we come upon this car. Bathed in Torch Red with
black accenting some of its carbon fiber accenting, it definitely
has the wide bodied low profile chiseled look of its European
competitors, however it offers up comfort and conveniences. Damn
the torpedoes with the weight to power ratio. Tinted glass, a chin
and rear spoiler, a vented center bump up in the hood, more shark
gills on the front quarter and rear quarters just prior to the
wheel wells, and on top, there is a lot of airflow going on with
this speedy racer. The back has rectangular wrap around looking
tail lighting and a black roll pan with dual shiny squared off
exhaust exit stage center. Early signs of a splitter are noted in
this roll pan panel. This in conjunction with a side rocker fin in
Coke bottle form melting to the car's sides has shades of Formula 1
to keep this car from taking off from the ground, while still
flying down the highway. 19-inch wheels for the front and 20-inches
for the back, all wrapped in the factory rubber with very little
wear. Carve away!
In true American sports car style, there are plenty of conveniences
on the interior, peppered about within Jet Black panels on the
doors, (locks, glass, seat memory positions and side vote mirrors
toggles), and the dash is not to be outdone with multiple digital
display screens. Multi function buttons abound so you better bone
up on your technology prior to driving this car to get the utmost
out of it. Suede inserts and leather bolsters are covering the Jet
Black interior high back buckets. In front a digital display speedo
and boost with oil temp and other gauges one can scroll through are
on either side of the speedo. In the center is a multi function
screen which displays the radio, navigation, backup camera and
bluetooth capable device hookups the driver or passenger may
connect to. The center console takes a handoff from the dash top
and on the passengers side gently lowers to the console while
creating a right handed Jesus bar. The shifter and glovebox are in
the drivers side, along with your digital control mouse wheel for
the selective handling. A black suede headliner is above, and this
panel can be removed for some open air speeding. All in beautiful
low mileage condition.
A lift of the front hinged hood, and what you see may not initially
impress you, but you are not going to wrench on it anyway, so just
go with it! It's a 6.2L supercharged LT4 V8 capable of producing
650hp! It has EFI, and paddle shifters on the wheel for the 8
speeds you may want to go through while bolting around town or the
track. On the back is a 3.42 limited slip differential. A neat
looking unassuming package at first glance with a "stinger"
Rust free and showroom shiny we see SLA independent suspension all
around, which is Z06 Performance Suspension with Magnetic Ride
Control. Plenty of cast aluminum which is corrosion free keeps the
weight down for more convenience options! A stainless steel exhaust
is on and is designated as a Multi-Mode performance exhaust.
But of course I hopped in and took it for a spin which it did in
many ways. Handling was off the charts, acceleration more than I'll
ever get to the real potential of, and creature comforts which will
bring a smile to any high maintenance driver or passenger, (not
unlike this writer just ask Stewart!). The screens and their modes
kept me on my techno toes, and all was working just swimmingly. Thx
Mr. high maintenance writer.
To sum it up in as simple of terms as I can...AWESOME experience.
Ourconsignor is parting with this car because 3 Corvettes are just
too much, ( translation: said his wife!), so he's parting ways with
this beautiful sports car from old Bowling Green, KY. You should
get there. A great museum is at your service and you can have your
car delivered to and sit in the museum.
