The in 2006 introduced Chevrolet Corvette Z06 differentiated itself on more points from the standard C6 than any other Corvette ever before. The standard C6 is a very serious car already, imagine this brute being the absolute superlative. Some specs; a full aluminium space frame with carbon fibre and aluminium body panels, the biggest small-block engine ever produced by GM with an enormous capacity of 7 litres and 511bhp, an increase of 105bhp over a C6, dry-sump lubrication of the hand build V8 engine with Titanium drive shafts, bigger front and rear wings with air vents to cool the colossal brake discs, a lightweight floor panel of composite and balsa wood, bigger brake callipers, front and rear! 19-inch alloy wheels and a secondary oil cooler for the gearbox. Of which the engine and its performance are the most striking out of the list of impressive upgrades. Impressive? Without changing gear from 0 to a hundred in one gear, in 3,4 seconds, and it's not an automatic. Largely on behalf of all the torque this 7ltr. V8 offers early in the rev-range. Also exactly what makes this Corvette beat every other rival, its practicality. In 3,4 seconds from standstill to one hundred is amusing pub talk, calmly and relatively comfortable on holiday with three big suitcases in the boot is also typical Z06. There is to say, is practical, but is also the brutal supercar blasting to a speed of far over 300km/h you account her for. Last but not least there is the price for all of this, despite the Dutch VAT and additional road taxes throwing not one, but a whole set of spanners in the works at the time of this car being sold, it still managed to be a 100K cheaper than a Ferrari 430, meanwhile in the US a Z06 would set you back far less than a $100.000, - new. This you can see in the current price, not to mention the affordable service costs and high reliability. What else could be a reason to not do it. Only if you have a son, or daughter, with a newly issued drivers license and a need for speed. Don't do it!
very complete specification with a.o automatic climate control, fully electric adjustable sports seats, heated seats, cruise control, infotainment system, head-up display, radio/cd installation with BOSE speaker system, Xenon lights, keyless-go, etc. etc.
Watch this spectacular Corvette come your way and it will leave you quivering. Very few cars, especially in this price-bracket, are this impressive. And pretty. The iconic design is an optima forma of form over function. The sloping bonnet, the bubble roof, which in this case is fixed, and the sharply cut rear-end, they enact the appearance whist all having an important aerodynamic function. In the colouration of this exemplar the design and its lines pop. The body is wholly original and damage free. The car has never had any work done to it, and remains in first paint. No observable traces of usage, the bumpers also free from any damages or parking scuffs.
As a result of the low mileage, also the interior remains fully original and undamaged. The seats remain in their original shape and do not show any signs of wear. The dashboard and centre console are as new, all switchgear is fresh and functions accordingly. Original floor mats in the footwells. The car has never been smoked in.
Also the engine- and luggage compartment are neatly clean and original. The rear tires of this Z06 will be on every wish list for your birthday from now on, the first set is on us.
Sold new in 2006 by a Californian Corvette dealer. If you have ever been in this American state, you know that speeds in an excess of 130km/h can cause you jail time, the quality of the gearbox and engine are therefore two things you do not longer have to worry about. Invoices and manuals are present. In 2010 the car was imported to the Netherlands and has had one familiar owner. The car has been driven with knowledge and respect, not on the Autobahn, as it would appear from its originality and first paint. Will be delivered with a new MOT, new rear tires, warranty and a service.
