FOR SALE: A 2008 Corvette Z06 Coupe in Velocity Yellow!
Even though summer is quickly coming to a close, this is still an amazing time to purchase your first (or next) Corvette…and boy do we have one for you to consider! This car, a 2008 Chevy Corvette Z06 Coupe, is for sale in Hendersonville, Tennessee from a private owner. Finished in Velocity Yellow and equipped with the 2LZ trim package, this Z06 Corvette promises an uncompromising driving experience that is second to none.
The current owner has had this car for a little over a year. In that time, it has been driven only briefly and garage stored when not in use. Although he purchased the car with the intent of driving it more, he’s decided instead to pursue his dream car – a Porsche 911 – and needs to sell this car to make space for the next. That said, this Z06 Corvette is in incredible condition (I’ve both seen and driven it) and would make a great addition to any garage/car collection. Moreover, it has many desirable options with the 2LZ trim package, including a powerful BOSE stereo system, and the immensely popular heads-up display.
The sixth-generation Corvette is generally considered one of the more robust Corvettes of the modern sports car era. At the heart of this beast is a 7.0-liter V8 engine that boasts 505 horsepower (at 6,300 rpm) and 470 lb-ft of torque (at 4,800 rpm). Like all sixth-generation Z06 Corvettes, the LS7 engine is paired to a Tremec TR-6060 six-speed manual transmission. Incidentally, this is the same transmission used in the Dodge Viper, the Ford GT, and the GT500. Together, this rugged powerplant delivers a 0-60 time of just 3.4 seconds, an 11.7-second quarter-mile at 125mph, and a documented 198 horsepower top speed.
What make’s this car even better is that, in addition to massive horsepower, it still provides consumers with better fuel economy and more cargo space than other sports cars in its class. This example, with the aforementioned 2LZ trim package, also provides would-be owners with a plethora of creature comforts that include an AM/FM stereo with six-disc in-dash CD and MP3 playback, seek and scan, a digital clock, auto-tone control, Radio Data System, automatic volume, TheftLock, auxiliary input jacks, and the aforementioned Bose premium seven-speaker system.
Additionally, the 2LZ package also includes an enhanced acoustic package, luggage shade, parcel net, Memory Package, Power telescoping steering wheel, heated driver and passenger seats, steering wheel mounted audio controls, side airbags, and a universal home remote. Even better, this particular example also features the in-dash navigation system. This package was sold separately from the 2LZ option group and cost an additional $1750.00 when new. In short, this car is fully equipped with everything you’d want in a Corvette!
Although the exterior of the sixth-generation Z06 is stylistically similar to its base model counterparts, it does have some unique appointments that add to its aggressive stance. These include a pseudo-functional front nose scoop (a unique feature to the Z06), larger air extractors behind the front wheels, a downforce-generating front splitter, wider rear fenders to house the car’s massive rear tires, and a pair of side-mounted, rear brake-cooling scoops. A unique spoiler, Z06-specific chrome wheels, and distinct Z06 badging complete the exterior look of this beautiful car.
The seller notes that there are a few minor scratches/scrapes on the passenger side mirror and the car’s rear end. That said, the car IS clean and worth taking a closer look at. When considering this car, the current owner has also stated that the car comes with a clean, accident-free Carfax report for added buyer confidence. At the time of this posting, the car has approximately 46,200 miles on its odometer.
The seller, Jeremy West, is asking $44,000 or best offer.
Before we posted this listing, we looked at similarly equipped 2008 Corvette Z06 coupes with approximately the same mileage on each, and we discovered that the seller’s asking price on this car, given what we know of its current condition, is fairly competitive in today’s automotive marketplace. That said, the seller is motivated to sell this car and will entertain any/all reasonable offers.
