When Chevrolet introduced the C6 Z06 in 2006, they had three
magical numbers that would ring true with Bow Tie enthusiasts all
over the world: 4-2-7. This sinister twin-turbocharged 2007 Z06 is
nothing short of a weapon, both on the track and on the street, and
you won't find a faster car for less cash anywhere.
This particular Black Z06 remains in excellent condition throughout, suggesting careful ownership since it was new. With only 28,966 original miles, it has been driven only on sunny days, and its well-preserved condition bears this out. Black was the most popular Z06 color in 2007, and if you like your Corvettes to walk softly and carry a big stick, this one is for you. 2527 Z06s were built in Black, and it's easy to understand why because the sucker looks nasty just sitting still. The Z06 enjoys wider wheel flares that give it a low, menacing stance as well as a custom front fascia with a special air intake between the headlights, and now fitted with a ZR1 front splitter. A few aftermarket body mods, including the air extractor on the back, only highlight the racetrack breeding. The effect isn't subtle, and nobody will mistake this Z06 for a garden-variety Corvette. It does show some very minor signs of use, because it's impossible to resist driving this car, but if you want one to drive, this is a fantastic choice (we'll tell you why in a moment).
As with the exterior, the interior of the car is in superb shape, with only very light signs of use. For all its race-inspired functionality, the Z06 is designed to be a daily-drivable high-performance vehicle. To that end, comfort and convenience are held to a very high standard. HID headlights, fog lamps, leather seating, dual-zone air conditioning, cabin air filtration and a heads-up display (HUD) with track mode and g-meter are standard. The Z06 gauge cluster displays the Z06 logo on the 7000-redline tachometer and has readout on the oil pressure gauge to reflect the higher standard pressure of the dry-sump oiling system. The seats feature leather seating surfaces, with Z06-logo embroidery and contrasting stitching, and someone has added a custom shifter for the 6-speed manual gearbox. The only other modifications are a back-up camera in place of the rear-view mirror, and, of course, the roll cage built in behind the seats.
The real drama is under this 'Vette's skin. That 427 cubic inch V8 is no joke, and with its aluminum construction, it weighs several hundred pounds less than the legendary 427s of the '60s, while extracting more performance than ever before. But that's not all, because the guys at Lindgren Supercars added a pair of big honkin' turbos to the front of the engine. With a fabricated intake, custom fuel system, and upgraded injectors, the nasty LS7 is as docile as a stocker but makes about three times more horsepower. An expert dyno tune ensures that it's very streetable despite the towering power output. The rear-mounted 6-speed transmission gets a pump that sends transmission fluid forward to be cooled in a dedicated heat exchanger. Massive 14-inch brakes are clamped by six piston calipers while out back, four piston units clamp merely large 13.4-inch rotors. It's been fitted with a custom coil-over suspension, upgraded dry sump system, and a hand-made exhaust setup that manages to sound amazing even with two turbos hushing it all up. Wheels are large-by-huge COR Cipher forged alloys with a flat black coating and wearing 285/25/20 front and 345/25/20 rear Toyo performance radials.
