Bang for the buck
By RoyS on
2007 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 2dr Coupe (7.0L 8cyl 6M)
I had owned and enjoyed a 2003 Z06, but the 2007 is basically the same curb weight with 100 more hp. The car must be driven with respect for its capabilities. I do 2-3 HPDE events a year with it. The coupe design allows a lot of luggage space. On a road trip of nearly 2000 miles using the AC over half the time, the car got 27.5 mpg.
Tremendous acceleration, non-invasive stability control, strong brakes, good handling. Power windows that raise and lower slightly for a good seal on opening and closing the doors.
The weakest part of the car is probably its clutch. The prodigous torque can easily overpower it. The runflat tires will heat up and pressure up on a track.
