Corvette Of The Day: 2019 Chevrolet Corvette Z06

The 2019 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 boasts an impressive starting price of about $80,000, yet can accelerate from 0-60 MPH in a mere 2.95 seconds – a feat typically associated with costly Italian supercars. This attainable driver’s car was developed alongside the Corvette race team and their C7.R racecar.

Available as either a coupe or convertible, the Z06 is equipped to make a lasting impression with its carbon-fiber roof panel (matching the body color), nineteen-inch alloy wheels in the front, and twenty-inch alloy wheels in the rear.

Inside, the GT bucket seats are supportive and comfortable, and the dual-zone automatic climate control adds to the driving experience, along with the premium Bose audio system and the performance exhaust. The Z06 model also includes standard keyless open with push-button start and perforated Mulan leather upholstery (upgradeable to perforated Napa leather).

The Z06’s infernal 6.2-litre supercharged V8 engine produces a mesmerizing 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque, with the option of a 7-speed manual gearbox or an 8-speed automatic. With magnetorheological dampers, dry sump oil system, titanium intake valves, optional carbon ceramic brakes, and Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires, the Z06 is designed to take on supercars like the Porsche 911 and Mercedes AMG GT.
