Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be the proud owner of a new 2015 Corvette Z06? Of course you have, we’ve all fantasized about throttling its LT4 supercharged V8 both at the track and between the lights, and admiring the exotic looks as we step out of the cockpit. And while its MSRP remains a performance bargain, chances are the Z06 is more expensive to own than you may think. So expensive, in fact, that a set of new Michelin Pilot Super Sport Cup tires, carbon ceramic Z06 rotors, and brake pads cost more than a brand new Chevrolet Cruze.
It’s almost jaw dropping, that a 2015 Chevy Cruze starting at $16,170 is more affordable than the previously listed maintenance parts for a 2015 Corvette Z06. The parts come to a total of $16,730, which is $17,859.96 after taxes, according to a quote posted online from a Chevrolet dealer customer. But hey, pay to play. World-class Brembo hardware isn’t cheap.
Of course, there are a cheaper alternatives to dealership prices, as one commenter suggested ordering the parts online instead of the dealership – the total price being $9,900 shipped.
