- Description: Imagine the exhilarating feeling that can only come from climbing behind the wheel of one of the most powerful American production cars on the road. This 2016 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 3LZ Convertible packed with the coveted Z07 Performance Package can provide exactly that. Having logged just 15,822 miles, it’s relatively low-travelled for a sports car this insanely fun to drive, and by every measure it’s an absolute scorcher – offering adrenaline-inducing acceleration and handling that puts it with very select company among exotics. With a 6.2L Supercharged LT4 V8 mated to an 8-Speed Paddle-Shifter Automatic, the drivetrain boasts 650HP of break-neck responsiveness on road and track alike, paring with the modern marvels of the Z07 performance suspension and gigantic Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes. Clean as can be with enough power for two sports cars, this C7 Stingray represents one of the best ‘bang-for-your-buck’ vehicles you’ll ever come across, so read fast before anyone else gets wise. The notion that you’re casting eyes on a very special car will appear right away – even in the exalted company of modern Corvettes this one will readily stand out, and you’ll want to immediately take a closer look at this stunner to fully appreciate the showroom condition that it’s in. Its Fusion Gray Metallic exterior is a bit of a mouthful to say, and even more sensory arousing once you see it dance with the lights in our showroom. Even 7 years later the C7 design seems futuristic, with homage-setting Mako Shark concepts seen throughout, working hard to shed its former image as the “old man’s toy”. The C7 appealed to a younger crowd with features like a carbon-fiber hood and Transformer’s style scoop, Carbon-Flash chin spoiler and ground effects, a tall carbon-fiber rear wing, dynamic fenders and quarters made from composite materials, and the uber-aggressive rear end with quad exhaust pipes. Everywhere you look you can see that this Stingray was sculpted inside a wind tunnel, with all kinds of interesting angles, inductions, and grooves that accentuate the insanely exciting lines of this gorgeous beast. That distinctive gunmetal-gray paint is still looking its best and black carbon fiber accents provide just the right amount of contrast, punctuated by the LeMans-style stripes down the center and blacked-out Z06 aluminum wheels. And whether the black power convertible top is on or off, this beauty looks like a million bucks. The Kalahari and Jet Black leather-and-suede upmarket interior waiting inside the doors is about as clean as interiors come – this Vette’s light usage has definitely paid dividends. This is an unusually comfortable driving environment for any car, let alone one that offers the world class performance of the C7. The steering column both tilts and telescopes and the ultra-clean and distinctive leather-and-suede buckets glide smoothly into place to provide just the right comfortable driving position, and there’s a surprising amount of shoulder room inside – far more than many of the Vette’s exotic competitors. The air conditioning is working at full force for maximum comfort and the featured navigation system will point you exactly to where you’re going – and no doubt you’ll be able to get there at warp speed. There’ll certainly be no shortage of audio options, either – the AM/FM/DVD premium stereo also features satellite and Bluetooth connectivity, along with a back-up camera that runs through the same media center. A host of digital gauges keeps an eye on the motor and all of its upgrades, and the center console houses the shifter for the 8-speed automatic transmission which can also be managed via the paddle-shifters behind the steering wheel. The 3LZ options list is a mile long, just know that pretty much anything invented by 2016 is in this car, and the combination of carbon-fiber inlays with all that black and Kalahari leather and suede is downright sexy inside. And as you might expect in a car with so few miles, everything is incredibly clean and barely shows any use, including the trunk. Chevy has gone to great lengths over the decades to arm its Corvettes with world class powerplants, but when this 2016 Z06/Z07 Package hit the streets, everyone was impressed (even the snobs across the pond). Unreal performance comes from a supercharged version of the 6.2 liter LT4 V8 used in lesser Corvettes, and it cranks out 650 horsepower and 650 pounds of torque. Yes, it’s legit. This is more car than you can use anywhere on surface streets and I’m not sure what else can run with it, especially at this price point. You’d certainly have to spend a lot more money to go incrementally faster. The LT motors are practically bulletproof, with the Z06 being specifically bred for the track and the Z07 Package taking things to the stratosphere with all kinds of upgrades designed to improve reliability and durability under stress. There are coolers for the oil, transmission, and rear end, gigantic Brembo carbon-ceramic disc brakes at all four corners, and a performance suspension that claws so hard at the pavement that it might dislodge chunks of asphalt. It scorches 0-60 in an eye-popping 2.95 seconds, the quarter mile in a hair under 11 seconds, and pulls all the way to the front door of 200 MPH. Nevertheless, it rides well enough to drive every day and if you keep your foot out of it, fuel economy is reasonable. The 8-speed shifts on its own just when you need it to and the exhaust barks the way old-school muscle cars used to. Beautiful Z06 black aluminum wheels with staggered Michelin Pilots (19s front/20s in the rear) give it neck-straining grip and look amazing. True super car performance is hard to come by and certainly far harder without paying a King’s ransom, and yet that’s exactly what this Corvette Z06/Z07 convertible offers. Call today!
