Footnotes

  • 'The new Z06 delivers levels of performance, technology and design that rival the most exotic supercars in the world. And the Z06 leverages the engineering expertise of GM, offering the choice of two world-class transmissions, supercar performance without supercar fuel consumption, and technologies that make it easier to fully enjoy the incredible experience of driving it.' - Mark Reuss, President, General Motors North America.

    The world's longest-running production sports car, the iconic Chevrolet Corvette was seen as a radical departure for a marque hitherto associated almost exclusively with sensible family transport when it was launched back in 1953. Since then the design has progressed through seven different generations, the current (C7) incarnation being a new introduction for the 2014 model year.

    Following some six years of development, the C7 Corvette debuted at the North American Auto Show in Detroit in January 2013. Although alternative engine layouts had been considered, Chevrolet's engineers opted to retain the traditional front-engine-rear-drive arrangement, no doubt to the relief of purists everywhere. The angular styling, though, represented a break from what had gone before, featuring obvious aerodynamic aids, sharp creases in body panels, and a squared-off rear end inspired by that of the Chevrolet Camaro. Special attention had been given to the interior, which was of better fit and finish than before. Also new was the Corvette's 'Crossed Flags' logo, while the 'Stingray' name returned to the range after an absence of almost 40 years. Deliveries began in September 2013, and as usual the Corvette was available in two body styles: coupé and convertible, the former featuring a removable roof panel.

    The Corvette's traditional glassfibre composite body construction was retained, albeit with several panels now in carbon fibre, while beneath the skin there was a chassis of hydro-formed aluminium boasting independent suspension all round by means of unequal-length wishbones. Magnetic Selective Ride Control dampers and an electronic limited-slip differential came as standard.

    Some preceding versions had used overhead-camshaft engines, but the latest Corvette was powered by a new LT1 small-block pushrod V8 displacing 6.2 litres and producing 455bhp. Pushrods might seem somewhat old fashioned these days, but the fuel-injected LT1 nevertheless incorporated the latest in engine control technology in the form of Active Fuel Management (cylinder deactivation) and continuously variable valve timing. Manufactured by Tremec, the seven-speed manual transmission featured Active Rev Matching, while driver-selectable drive modes comprised Weather, Eco, Tour, Sport, and Track. Six- and (later) eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmissions were available also.

    One of the more interesting items of standard equipment was the Performance Data Recorder (PDR) a GPS-based system capable of recording both video and audio, plus telemetry with Track, Sport, Touring, and Performance data display modes – ideal for track days. And for those who found the standard Stingray's 455 horsepower insufficient, there was the Z06 with the Z07 Performance Package, introduced for 2015, at the heart of which was a supercharged 6.2-litre LT4 V8 engine producing 650bhp and 650lb/ft of torque. Enhancements to the running gear included revised suspension; 19x10" front and 20x12" wheels; Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tyres; and Brembo ceramic brakes. In addition, there were numerous changes and additions to the bodywork in the interests of increasing downforce and improving cooling for the engine and brakes. Flared wheelarches covered the Z06's wider tyres, and the result was an even more aggressive looking car with the performance to match its striking appearance.

    Equipped with the Z07 Performance Package, the Z06 achieved lap times superior to those of any preceding Corvette. With some justification, Chevrolet hailed the 2015 Z06 as 'the most track-capable Corvette in the brand's history', a model that 'enters supercar territory with race-proven design, advanced technologies and world-class performance'. There can be little doubt that the Z06 will become one of the most coveted and collectible of modern Corvettes.

    Finished in Laguna Blue with black hide interior, this Corvette Z06 has the Z07 Performance Pack and seven-speed manual transmission, while other noteworthy features of this ultimate-specification 'Vette include the Carbon Fibre Exterior Styling Pack, Battery Protection Pack, dark grey brake callipers, black aluminium wheels, and the Performance Data Recorder. Purchased new by the current vendor, one of the UK's foremost collectors of supercars, it has covered only 'delivery' mileage and is presented in effectively 'as new' condition.
