Z06, a race car for the street.
By Terry on
2006 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 2dr Coupe (7.0L 8cyl 6M)
427 cubic inches with 505 horsepower and 475 ft. lbs. of torque in a 3100 lb package. The car is absolutely awesome in acceleration, braking, handling. I have owned 6 Corvettes in the past. This is by far the baddest production Corvette produced so far. The torque of the engine is seamless from idle to it;s 7,000 rpm redline.This vehicle's performance is spectacular. It is almost unbelievable this car is so docile and easy in bumper to bumper traffic as it is right at home on the race track doing 150mph plus. The 6 piston calipers up front with 14" rotors and the 4 piston calipers with 13.5" rotors making stopping unbelievable. On the race track there is absolutely no fad.
The torque of the engine. When the revs hit 3500rpm and up, the accerleration goes into hyperspeed. Top speed is claimed at 198mph. 0-60mph is 3.5seconds, all done in first gear!!
I have some horsepower modifications planned in the future to get around 600 horsepower. It will be a daily driver and weekend racers with a full factory warranty.
