Motor Trend didn’t have the greatest experience with the 2016 C7 Corvette Z06 during its Best Driver’s Car competition. The 2016 C7 Z06 became plagued with an unknown issue, leaving many of its ponies off the table during its runs at Laguna Seca.
That car was yellow. The car we see here, for World’s Greatest Drag Race Five, is red. And it has arrived ready to fight for a title, any title, after its previous embarrassment.
One thing it has going against it, however, is the seven-speed manual transmission, since its two closest competitors here are employing quick-shifting automatics. But, it also out-powers its two closest competitors, too. Here, it’s about the hook, power and punch a car can deliver. Not as much its handling prowess.
So, we invite you to sit back, relax, and have a look for yourself. Can the 2016 C7 Corvette Z06 make a comeback? You’ll know after 6:22 of your time.
