THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Moore's Law—the famous prediction by Intel co-found Gordon Moore that number of transistors on an integrated circuit would double every two years—could just as easily apply to Corvettes as to semiconductors, at least when applied to raw power. When the C4 came out in 1984, it had 250bhp. The C5 in 1997 had 345bhp. The C6 in 2004 had 400bhp. By the time the C7 came out in 2013 it had 455bhp. But those of course were the base motors, things only got wilder from there.

The 'Vette here is a C7 Z06 that is, for all intents and purposes, the prior iteration of the ZR1. It produces 650bhp, enough to move the coupe from 0-60mph in only 3.3 seconds. If you happen to find yourself merging onto the tollway between Austin and San Antonio, it'll take you about six seconds to get from a standstill past the 85mph speed limit. Keep the foot planted and you'll be looking forward to getting a ticket for doing 100mph over that.

You might remember this specific Corvette from its appearances at every major debut of the new Z06. The second Z06 off the line, s/n 00002 is outfitted with the C7.R Edition that features Corvette Racing Yellow Tintcoat paint (a new color for 2016 and one of two colors offered in the package—the other being Black), C7.R Edition graphics, black rims with yellow accent stripes, Competition Sport Seats, steering wheel, and shifter all finished in Jet Black leather with sueded microfiber accents, special edition kickplates, and of course the Z06 performance package.

This car spent the better part of 2015 under show lights at Laguna Seca, Bloomington Gold, the Woodward Dream Cruise, and the Continental Tire Road Race Showcase followed by 2016 events including: Bloomington Gold again and the NAIAS [Detroit], Philadelphia, Milwaukee, Denver, and Birmingham Auto Shows. Acquired by the vendor directly of Chevrolet, just over 970 miles are currently on the car. There may be others like it, but none of them were bestowed the celebrity attention of this car!
