Chevrolet Corvette Z06 – 332 Miles From New

Year: 2006|Miles: 332|Ext: Velocity Yellow|Int: Ebony Leather |

When Corvette engineers set to work on the 6th generation of Chevrolet?s perennial sports car, they decided to get serious about building a world-beater. The base C6 had already proven itself as a very capable car thanks to the new 6.0 liter ?smallblock? V8, and much improved materials and build quality. But the skunkworks within Corvette had been working on a side project that took the formula and honed it down to its essence. The resulting Z06 was unveiled in 2006 and it took the world by storm. Developed alongside the GT-class racing cars, the Z06 was a track-day thoroughbred from the start. Racing technology was used extensively in the car, starting with the 7.0 liter, dry-sump LS7 V8 that produced 505 horsepower. The Z06 used a completely different chassis from the standard Corvette, constructed of Aluminum rather than steel – saving 136 pounds. The suspension was completely re-worked, a lightweight honeycomb composite floor used and the roof fixed for additional structural rigidity.

So much more than a bit of extra power and fat tires, the Corvette Z06 is a fully re-engineered and sophisticated supercar that proved its mettle on the world motorsport stage when Z06-based C6-Rs won multiple races in the ALMS series, as well as multiple overall victories at the prestigious 24h of LeMans, eventually going on to win the ALMS GT-Class championship.

With just 332 miles from new, RB Collection proudly offers this stunning Z06; surely one of the finest and lowest-mileage examples available today. Originally purchased by a wealthy Northeast collector, it was left essentially unused since delivery. Finished in Velocity Yellow over ebony leather, (recalling the legendary C6.R LeMans car livery) this exquisite example is simply as close to a brand new C6 Z06 you can get today. It was highly optioned from new and comes complete with all of the original manuals and instructional videos, most of which are brand new and unopened.

The condition is as you would expect of a time-warp example. Paint, panel fit and exterior trim are as new, like the car left the Bowling Green, KY plant yesterday. The black leather interior looks showroom fresh with no wear on the seats or carpets and every electronic function working as you would expect. Polished alloy wheels wear correct original Goodyear tires and have no flaws to speak of. RB Collection has performed a 108-point inspection, and the car has been fully serviced by a Chevrolet Corvette dealer to ensure it is ready for careful enjoyment. This is a true collector-quality Z06 that stands head and shoulders above the average cars on the market. Sale includes original documentation, window sticker, books, manuals, navigation and instructional DVDs and an integrated battery tender.
