DETAILS – THIS PARTICULAR 2015 Z06 CONVERTIBLE
Let us begin by offering a warning to prospective buyers of the 2015 Corvette Z06. The C7 Corvette is a VERY serious car and one that should be treated with considerable respect. With a supercharged 650 horsepower engine and 650 ft. lbs. of torque, this car rockets to 60 mph in 3 seconds and a 0-100 time of just over 7 seconds, to say this car is fast would be a dramatic understatement. Reviews on the Z06 suggest that the car can reach speeds of 205 mph.
While the positive reviews are entirely too numerous to list, the Car & Driver list of “Pro’s” might sum it up best having said “Just ridiculous – as in ridiculously fast, ridiculously quick, ridiculously powerful, and a ridiculous value.” They went on to exclaim “However, the magnetorheological shock absorbers enable the Z06 to deliver a ride that is livable every day with accurate, quick steering.”
The combination of incredibly low mileage, California lineage, striking color combination and like new condition make this car truly one of a kind.
HISTORY OF THE CHEVROLET CORVETTE C7 Z06
The Corvette Z06 package lives on. Officially announced on January 14, 2014, Chevrolet is producing the legendary Z06 on the all-new C7 Corvette platforms. Equipped with a LT4 6.2L supercharged engine that produces 650 hp and 650 lb-ft. of twist, the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is by far the fastest and most capable track-ready Corvette ever produced. The Z06 has long been a package offered for the Corvette. Available in four of seven production generations, the Z06 package has always stood for power, aerodynamics, and increased braking.
The all-new seventh generation Corvette now carries the torch for the Z06 package. Redesigned for the 2014 model year, the C7 platform has been much improved and will undoubtedly make the Z06 the most impressive version yet. Packing a LT4 6.2L supercharged V-8 engine capable of 650 hp and 650 lb-ft. of torque, the 2015 Corvette Z06 is an impressive force. The engine will breathe more efficiently due to Rotocast A356T6 aluminum cylinder heads and lightweight titanium intake valves. A dry-sump oiling system will even keep the moving parts from generating too much friction. Expect a heftily 10.0:1 compression ratio to help turn the forged aluminum pistons, while a stainless steel exhaust feeds fumes toward the rear of the car. Customers will have the choice of two transmissions to control the all-new Z06: Either a seven-speed manual with Active Rev Match or a paddle-shift eight-speed automatic transmission (8L90). Both transmissions will offer a high-intensity experience on the road.
The 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 has a stiffer aluminum frame than the standard base Vette. Brembo brakes handle stopping duties at all four corners with two-piece steel rotors 14.6×1.3-inch up front and 14.4×1-inch in the rear. The Z06 also gets aluminum six-piston (front) and four-piston (rear) fixed calipers. Wheels are spin cast-aluminum and will measure in a 19×10-inch up front with a 20×12-inch out back – an improvement over the standard Stingray wheels. The wheels will be wrapped in P285/30ZR19 (front) and P335/25ZR20 (rear).
The interior and exterior of the Z06 package continue the race-ready heritage, focused on aerodynamics and down force. The interior features a flat-bottomed steering wheel and magnesium GT seats. For coupe versions, a removable roof panel is the biggest change for the C7 Z06 over the C6 version. The exterior of the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 has a front splitter and spats around the front wheel openings will help allow air to flow efficiently through the Vette’s body. A carbon-fiber hood with a larger vent than the standard Stingray allows the supercharged engine to breathe more efficiently. A rear spoiler from the Corvette Stingray’s Z51 Performance Package is standard with the Z06 to help with down force. Front and rear brake-cooling ducts are functional on the Z06.
While the base price is in the range of $85,000.00 many well optioned cars are well over $100,000.00. However, automotive reviewers consider the car to be a “bargain” considering its performance, technological advancements, great looks and overall value compared with cars costing literally two & three times more.
