- Description: We could call this car a sleeper, but quite frankly, everyone already knows not to mess with a 2002 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. But when this extra sleek and ultra low-mileage coupe has been upgraded to a twin-turbo setup for approx 850 horsepower, this speedy red Vette enters supercar territory. The C5 Z06 was built to be a true enthusiast’s Corvette. The Fixed Roof Coupe (FRC) was the lightest and strongest Corvette configuration. Then they shed weight wherever they could, even including utilizing a thinner windshield. The result was the leanest and meanest Corvette to hit the streets. But more than just a powerful package, this example is a stunner. It has only about 8,500 miles on the odometer, which is barely over 400 miles annually. In fact, the story is how this has been under the long-term care of a true collector who was the one who also had the STS twin turbo upgrade done. And while we’ll get to the added performance shortly, take a moment to appreciate what it means to be prized by a collector. The factory Torch Red remains vibrant. There’s a crisp and clean style to the Z06’s more aggressive lines that really let everyone know it’s a low-mileage machine. It’s a radiant total package, right down to the special high-polish Z06 alloys. So people may be too busy admiring the quality to notice subtle details, like the STS rocker decals and different exhaust tips. The black leather interior continues this car’s well-presented nature with its inviting style. It’s loaded with the best features like dual-zone climate control, power steering, power windows, power locks, keyless entry, power mirrors, power seats, cruise control, and the AM/FM/CD stereo with premium Bose audio. Because this is a modern classic, it also means modern safety features such as dual airbags and anti-lock brakes. And the FRC was a practical choice that offered plenty of trunk space. You’ll never get tired of watching the gauges do their dance every time you start the engine, but the head-up display means you never have to take your eyes off the road during performance driving. You might have also picked up on some very handy upgrades, like the boost gauge and pyrometer mounted on the A-pillar. The engine bay gives the first impression of a very stock style. So you’ll love showing off the distinct red covers that signal this is the hot LS6 motor. This fuel-injected 5.7-liter motor is already a legend for power and robustness, and we’re actually told that this is likely a replacement motor specifically made to handle its unique upgrade. As you look a little closer at the engine bay and undercarriage, you’re going to notice some well-placed added piping. It’s a twin turbocharger setup, and since the Corvette’s engine bay was already packed with power, the turbos and wastegates are back by the exhaust tips. Pipes then send the pressure back to the front for the intercooler and inject some serious power. In fact, this is claimed to make as much as 850 horsepower – and that’s a ton more than even a brand-new Ferrari 812! And you’re going to love being fully in charge of this enhanced powerhouse thanks to the six-speed manual transmission. As a true competition machine, The Z06 received its own suspension upgrade package to make sure the fully independent setup performs at its best during high speeds. And keeping everything in control is also the large four-wheel disc brake package and Goodyear Eagle F1 rubber. Complete with the owner’s manual, Chevy made the Z06 to be a true performer, and this is the one that fully realizes that potential. So don’t miss this monster custom Corvette. Call today!!!
