The below 2015 Corvette Z06 video review by Fast Lane Daily is comprehensive and fully of nasty exhaust sounds, just the way Corvette fans like their cars (as well as their editorial). Using a fully optioned, Z07, nasty black and red car as their review model, Fast Lane Daily puts a smile on the faces of the Corvette faithful, and converts any remaining skeptics.
The Corvette Stingray’s Nasty Big Brother
Just in case you’ve been living under a rock, the new Z06 is the best Corvette ever created. A 6.2-liter Supercharged V8 that puts out 650 horsepower and lays down 650 lb. feet of torque is just the beginning of the improvements that have been made over the Stingray model. In addition, the Z07 package adds carbon ceramic breaks that bite hard(as the reviewer puts it), carbon fiber pieces, and a massive wing on the rear of the car that takes the downforce on this car up to eleven. Add to that, as any Corvette fan knows, these top-tier Corvette models come with extremely wide, run-flat tires.
Speaking of the tires, the review car’s owner actually put all-season tires on this nasty beast because he intends to drive it year-round. This is a man that knows how to own a Corvette. There’s nothing more depressing than a Corvette that’s cooped up half the year.
A Car That Is Unabashedly Brutal
Another great thing about this review is that the vast majority of it takes place in the car with the engine roaring. Admittedly, I found myself rewinding just to listen to the exhaust note. That’s the stock exhaust, by the way.
The 2015 Corvette Z06 goes to twelve. This is exactly why so many people love Corvettes. While other manufacturers are concerned with achieving higher refinement and comfort, the Corvette is always striving to find new levels of brutality. In the past, a lot of car elitists have put their nose up at the Corvette for being too loud, too rough, too “unrefined.” GM’s response? Louder, rougher, and what does refinement even mean? A red interior never looked so appropriate.
As the reviewer puts it, this car is a cacophony of awesomeness that says, “I have arrived.” If you’re in the market for a Ferrari, you may want to consider the Corvette instead. If you’re not in the market for a Ferrari, you may still want to consider the Corvette.
