The seventh-generation Corvette Stingray turned out to be huge success. The car’s new design, the long-awaited premium interior, and its powerful engine make it the greatest Corvette ever created. Add the $51,995 sticker to the equation and you have a bargain on your hands. Fortunately for those looking for a more powerful Vette and race-inspired styling, Chevrolet has also developed a new Z06 . It’s gorgeous, supercharged and shares many of its underpinnings with the Z06.R race car. It has supercar-like power that sits at 650 ponies and 650 pound-feet of torque, and a starting price that makes it cheaper than a Porsche 911. Need I say more?
There’s one more thing actually. If you have been saving at least $78,995 for Chevy’s halo car it’s about time you start building yourself one, as the manufacturer has just fired up the Z06’s online configurator. Both the coupe and the convertible are available in the company’s online tool, allowing you to play with the sports car’s exterior colors, interior trims and selection of wheels.
