Test-driving the new 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06, the most powerful production ’Vette ever, is like hopping on a Big Wheel as a kid, then realizing there are rockets strapped to the back. Once you hit the gas, the rest is a blur. But after I caught my breath, I conjured the following takeaways and photos. Enjoy.
Just saying the Z06 does 0 to 60 mph in 2.95 seconds really doesn’t do it justice.
It is a work of beauty.
Eighty grand is a steal for a car packed with this kind of performance.
There are too many details to name.
Chevy could totally sell seat time in the new Z06 as a ride at an amusement park.
Nothing sounds better than hearing a 650 HP supercharged V8 whine through the canyons.
That cool-looking wing isn’t just for show.
Some cars need their own designated open roads, free of any inhabitants.
Drake must have been driving a pre-production Z06 when he coined, “0 to 100, Real Quick.”
I do like it in red. Don’t you? Photos by A.J. Mueller
