Real World Test Drive 2011 Corvette
The 2011 Corvette is available as either an "affordable" sports car or a
super car with a super price tag. Grant Winter takes us for a Real World
Test Drive of an automotive legend:
2010 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Start Up, Exterior/ Interior Tour
Much thanks goes out to Classic Chevrolet in Grapevine, TX and Internet
Sales Manager, Justin Norwood and his staff for making this tour possible.
If anyone has any questions, wants more information about Classic
Chevrolet, or wishes to come see a vehicle and/ or view current inventory,
Here I bring you the 2010 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 in Torch Red with a Jet
Black leather interior. I give a full walk-around and tour on the Z06 as
well as start the engine, and go over a few of the major features and
performance figures along the way.
The 2010 Corvette Z06 still retains the C6 chassis code that was introduced
in 2006. The Z06 is one of the most powerful Corvettes to be produced and
driven today, second best only to its new brother, the ZR1. The massive
engine compartment, covered by the signature forward-hinged hood, houses a
7.0L LS7 V8 that pounds out a whopping 505 hp and 500 lb/ ft of torque.
The 7.0L LS7 V8 is the largest V8 to ever be mass produced and built by GM
for any car, and each engine is hand-built. Mated to a 6 speed manual
transmission, 0-60 comes up in a screaming 4 seconds. The Z06's wide rear
tires and rear mounted transmission give it enough grip to frighten even
the most hardened of drivers. The Vette seems rather docile and quiet upon
start up, but only due to the butterfly valves inside the Exhaust. Open the taps a little bit, and
suddenly you are surrounded by a mass of explosive noise as the engine
comes to life. All around, the Z06 is a one mean Vette you don't want to
mess with, unless you want a massive thrashing!
