Chevrolet Corvette Z06




Okay, so I did just copy this report off of my other blog, but I fermly believe that the Z06 is one of the greatist cars of this time with price, power, and every day needs. So here it is, the 2006 Chevy Corvette Z06. I decided this because it has many different qualities, from it's slick looks, to its 505 HP V8 engine.
If the average person would walk up to the normal Corvette and the Corvette Z06, they would notice no difference. But if a car enthusiest, like myself, would look at it, the first thing that they would notice is the flaired out corners in the front. The reason that Chevy decided to do this is for more downforce in the corners. Another thing that they would notice is spoiler like, flair, in the back. This helps with the Corvette's aerodynamics. Another thing that helps with the aerodynamics is the scoop right in front of the hood, most of it's use is to help cool down the engine. The are scoops behind the front wheel and infront of the back wheel to help cool down the wheels. One other thing that Chevy decided to do is edge out the wheels so when the car comes down in the corners it wont rub. The interior of the car is very similar to the normail version of the Corvette. The only difference is the Z06 symbol in verious areas of the interious, example, the head of the seat.
The 2006 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 offers a 505HP V8 engine. You can just tell that chevy was trying not only to build a newer, better engine, but to bring back that faster than fast Corvette that everybody knows. With an astounding 0-60 time of 3.7 seconds and doing the quarter mile in a mirro 11.5 seconds at 127 mph the only thing that the Z06 is missing is top end, which happens to be 198 mph. To me, 198 mph is still fast, but in the world of exotics, its border line. Thats right! I said exotic, which is what the Z06 has turned into. Recently, "Road & Track" and "Car & Driver" did a comparison between the 2006 Chevrolet Corvette Z06, the 2006 Dodge Viper, and the 2006 Ford GT! The Z06 came out with the overall victorie.
For only being $65,000, after options, it is one of the best buy's that you can find on the market today. If you are looking for a new ride and you have some cash to spare, $65,000 to be exact, I would pick up the new Corvette Z06. Being fast, luxorious, and affordable, for it's market, it is the best thing you can get.
