As narrated and driven by Alex Lloyd, Editor-at-Large, you get to appreciate the power, handling, and overall performance that Chevrolet has packaged into the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. Alex puts the Corvette Z06 through the paces on the race track, providing commentary throughout the fast ride on the track, giving us up-to-the-second, curve by curve descriptions on what he is experiencing driving the fabulous 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06.
The 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 has widely been presumed — before a single soul outside of the company has even driven it — to be one of the best machines GM has ever built. I refused to get sucked into these presumptions, but I must admit, on paper – 650 hp, 650 lb-ft of torque; 0-60 mph in 2.9 seconds and winglets that appear fresh off the C7.R Le Mans car — it does sound bloody amazing.
After spending a day in the Z06 at Road Atlanta followed by another on the Georgian country roads, I finally have my definitive answer: Yes, the Z06, which will go on sale for around $79,000 ($89,000 with the Stage 3 aero kit), is an absolute masterpiece. It’s the best Corvette I’ve ever driven, and yet it’s not without issues.
