The Chevrolet Corvette has always been the standard from which all other American sports cars are measured. Its history is rooted in a long and storied past that evoked the feeling of what the true potential of an American sports car should be.

In recent years, the Corvette has spurned some new versions, including the high-performance Corvette Z06, which, incidentally, is the latest subject of noted American tuning firm Hennessey.

Coming with all the standard Hennessey regalia, the Corvette Z06 Carbon Edition features a TVS2300 supercharger system, a high-flow air induction system, high-flow cylinder heads, an HPE engine management calibration, new cylinder heads, a fuel injector upgrade, stainless steel mid-pipes and long tube headers, and high-flow catalytic converters.

All these modifications resulted in the Corvette Z06’s 7.0-liter V8 engine receiving an increased output of 700 horsepower at 6,200 rpm, a sizable improvement from the standard figures of 505 horsepower at 6,300 rpm.

In addition to the impressive improvements in performance output, Hennessey also added their usual bells and whistles, complete with exterior badging, carbon fiber door sills, premium floormats, and serial-numbered dash and engine plaques.

There aren’t a lot of differences as far as the look of the car, but once you start the engine and pop open the hood, that’s where you’ll notice a whole new world.

If I’m going to compared it to the other sports car, I must say that it is one of the not so impressive figure performances that I know.

I found it so aggressive on its front headlight. Moreover, I can say that Hennessey really did a great work on this one. It’s a good thing as well that it has an awesome and impressive engine specs.

It looks so attractive on its body paint, and I have to agree that Hennessey really did a nice work on this vehicle. Moreover, I’m glad that they justify the fact that it is a sports car!

This one is so different from the other Corvette vehicle that’s why I really admired this vehicle. It’s a good thing as well that it still has an impressive and powerful engine.

Yeah! Its engine is what really caught my attention! It is so powerful and awesome for this Corvette and good think that it also has an impressive exterior appearance which looks very attractive on its body paint.

The engine is really so impressive and Chevrolet is truly great with that kind of vehicle! Anyway, I wonder if what are the other awesome features that it can offer aside from its powerful engine?

With its V8 engine that can deliver 700 horsepower@ 6,200 RPM, I bet it can give a better and quite remarkable figure performance on it, but I’m quite wondering if, it had a comfortable interior?

This Corvette Z06 Carbon Edition is not really so impressive when it comes on its exterior appearance, but I must say that it had lots of angst most especially on its powerful engine performance.

Chevrolet sports car, really much eye-catching on a red painted color, definite it is more alive. Like Ferrari painted in red, that the most stunning and expressive color.

This Corvette Z06 Carbon Edition is impressive enough but compared to the other sports car, I must say that it is one of the not so impressive figure performances that I know.

The back part of this Corvette Z06 seems too huge, but I must say that it didn’t lessen the appeal or the angst of this sports car. Even though it doesn’t have lots of detailing or design it is still looking fabulous for me.

The style of this Chevrolet car is like a Ferrari car. However, the performance of those car brands is different. This Chevrolet car is standard for all other American sports cars are measured.

Super fast red sports car is my first instinct whenever I see one. The style of this car is great and the design is simple, but simple car like this is great for me and it will simply stand out.

Impressive even though I don’t like the long front of this Chevrolet Corvette, but I must that the angst that it had been really stunning. I also noticed that it didn’t have any design, which is very appealing.
