VIDEO: Test Drive: Corvette Z06

The Corvette Z06 gives even more muscle to America’s favorite muscle car.

The test convertible that GM let me try out had a sticker price nearing 100 thousand dollars. But this vehicle competes with many exotic sports cars that are much more expensive.

The headline is the 650 horsepower. But the Z06 adds exotic material, lots of performance equipment, and cues that make the vehicle look fast.

If you’re into taking a car like this on the track, the Z06 helps you compete, and even–with an optional Performance Data Recorder–lets you track your speed and overall performance.

It’s also fun in a subdivision.

Watch the video to get more driving impressions, as well as some great scenes of awesome acceleration.
