2002 Chevrolet Corvette Z06: Makes You Dumber
April 15, 2010
Well, not technically speaking. Actually, our Z06 just makes you want to do dumb things.
Like launching from stoplights with the tires at full smoke. And I mean every stoplight. Corner exit tail slides are also ridiculously easy and nearly impossible to resist. Just ease into that 400 pound-feet of torque and away you go. On the sidewalk, old women scowl, dogs bark and children squeal, it's great.
It's the kind of fun you expect from a car that has its horsepower spelled out on the quarter panel. Kind of a shame that more people don't appreciate how much fun can be had in a car like the Z06. Glad I'm not one of them.
