PART TWO:The Coupe
The new Corvette Z06 is a huge, huge achievement and one of the most exciting cars to ever come from any US automaker.
As the first ultra-high-performance Corvette offered with a carbon-fiber targa panel and an optional automatic, the latest Z06 has the broadest possible appeal of nearly any supercar.
What do we compare this new 2.95-second supercar most closely with? The Porsche 911 Turbo.
That is a lofty but truly accurate competitor for the new Z06, and buyers are already clamoring for the 5000 Z06’s already on order.
So in addition to the manual versus automatic question, convertible buyers have to pick the perfect color and wheel style. Included here are all ten colors and the four finishes of wheels available – make selecting that bit easier!
For the wheels, the colors are silver, chrome, grey and black.
For the colors, we stock with the black wheels and the top down. But you can play around with these visualizations over at the link below to see the top up too.
