ReviewPowerful and smooth, this is the best
daily driver supercar you can buy. It
not only offers 405 HP with plenty of
low end torque for fast starts, but
also 1+ g cornering, active handling,
enormous tires that put power to the
pavement, and excellent brakes. No
maintenance or warranty issues have
I had feared that the Z06's press
calling the car something designed "for
the extreme enthusiast" meant it would
be stiff and harsh, and uncomfortable
for long trips. Thankfully this is not
true. Despite it's race-ready design,
it's a comfortable daily driver that
will allow you to put yourself wherever
you desire on the road.
Best FeaturesHead-up display, driver information console, electrochromic mirrors. Looks and power: Beautiful and sultry styling makes the eurocars look boring and boxy. The Corvette Z06's specs leave both euro and japanese cars under $80k far behind. Literally! And it gets 28MPG on the highway.
Worst FeaturesI wish it had a concealed antenna and rear glass hatch, like the coupe. I wish it included tire air pressure monitoring, like the coupe.
