When I think about the Corvette, I immediately think of a true American sports car. When the 1997 Corvette C5 came out, it was the fastest production corvette ever made. Now the Z06 carries the reputation even further, with major enhancements over the standard C5 coupe. The Z06 powered by a 385 horsepower 5.7 litre V8, and can reach speeds as high as 171 miles per hour! It can also accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 4 seconds and can do the 1/4 mile in only 12.6 seconds! The car also has a few visual differences over the normal Corvette, the most noticable being the side vents just in front of the rear wheel. With all this power and performance, the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is a great value at just $45,000. The Z06 costs only a few thousand more than the base Coupe and Convertable, and with 35 more horsepower than both of them, the Z06 is one hell of a sportscar!
