The C5 revived the Z06 name after many decades, and just like its predecessors, this was all about awakening the beast. Adding power and saving weight, this 2003 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 was the quickest 'Vette to date. So when you can find one with extremely low mileage, excellent care, and some fun extras, this 400+ hp speed machine is one of the best deals in modern collectibles.
We all know the legend of the Z06 by now. Chevy started with their lightest and strongest Corvette configuration, the FRC (Fixed Roof Coupe). 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. And so to have it born a slick black machine only reinforces its menacing attitude. Of course, what helps keep this factory-applied paint looking great is that it has been treated as a classic from day one - averaging less than 900 miles annually. After all, 2003 was the Corvette's golden anniversary, and so you want to keep a special car like this to the gold standard. So the way the light rolls evenly across the whole slick/straight body proves the presentation of this one is superior. And as you look closer, you can also see little touches that makes this one even more of a standout. All Z06s can have red brake calipers from Chevy, but this one also brightens up the Corvette scripts around the body to really let you know it's out for blood. The clear driving lights and titanium exhaust tips are nice added details of distinction. Plus, this one really gets extra-dark thanks to deeply tinted windows and a black finish to the upgraded C6 Z06 wheels (standard C5 Z06 alloys also come with the sale.)
Inside is exactly what you expect from a special Corvette. It's a loaded interior that's comfortable for two. The black leather buckets set the tone for the dark interior, and just like the exterior, the special Z06 stitching provides a great bold red detail. Low mileage means little seat time, so everything is in top condition. 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'll also love some added details, like the special 50th anniversary badging on the steering wheel and an added short-throw shifter. And more than just track-focused, this car offers plenty of luxuries, such as dual-zone automatic A/C climate control, power steering, power windows, keyless entry/alarm, power mirrors, power seats, cruise control, and a Bose AM/FM/CD stereo system. Because this is a modern classic, it also means modern safety features such as dual airbags and anti-lock brakes. Plus, the FRC style body has a trunk that can truly carry a weekend's worth of luggage (including the custom racing helmet that comes with this Z06.)
Even the engine bay continues the theme of a blackout package with some bold red detail. The full motor package looks stock, and that's because these never needed anything added to be awesome. Chevy built the 5.7-liter fuel-injected LS6 motor to be a juggernaut with 405 horsepower. But while this is the kind of condition you'll want to collect, we also know you won't be able to resist adding to the low mileage odometer. After all, the six-speed manual transmission gives you complete control over all the power and fury the V8 brings. As a true competition machine, this received its own suspension upgrade package to make the fully independent setup perform at its best during high speeds. And keeping everything in control is also the large four-wheel power disc brake package and Hankook Ventus V2 Evo sports tires.
The sale comes complete with the original window sticker, owner's manual, and even a car cover to tuck it into your garage at night. This is collectability and desirability in one total package. Call today!!!
