Amazing bang for the buck, especially used

2007 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 2dr Coupe (7.0L 8cyl 6M)


Found my Lemans Blue 07 Z with 4400 miles on it in 09, certified dealer in Idaho. Searched long time for this rare color, bought it sight unseen had it shipped to SoCal. Never looked back, have 18k on it now, probably 3-4k of that is on the track, only place to actually use this car the way it was meant to be used. Great Car! Upgraded oil sump to that of 09 models, but besides that the car is basically stock, and runs great on the street and track. I have a great mechanic that keeps it maintained so that helps. But very reliable car. Would recommend in a minute, especially to anyone wanting to experiment with some HPDE track days. Just have the heads checked! (see below)

Favorite Features

427 LS7, 505 HP, practically a race car out of the factory, Incredible power, decent comfort, great handling, amazing gas mileage 27mpg on hi-way) ... well, that's in 6th gear with my foot out of it!, Great Vette look, relatively cheap and easy to maintain (until you need tires and brake pads, which is a lot if you track it!). It's certainly not in the 'exotic' category, but hey, I paid 50k for this car... not expecting it to be! It's a two seat sports car, with the emphasis on SPORTS.

Suggested Improvements

427 LS7 ... Better QC on the engine building.. these things have a possible design flaw, bad parts, or lack of QC, as some of them are blowing up (dropping valves), and not only on the track. Do your research if you want one... Lots of folks are redoing the heads after warranty. My valve clearance has been checked and all good. Most of the desired improvements have been met in the new C7. Waiting to see if the new ZO6(7) will debut in Detroit in Jan. '14 as rumored... drooling.... oh yeah.. hope they at least have 'auto up' on the P.Windows now... can't believe mine doesn't!
