The Drive aimed to see if the Corvette Z06 can be a legitimate daily driver. According to the video, the publication had a track day scheduled with the sports car, but it was canceled. So, plans changed.
Our host takes us on a journey of normal daily routines to show how practical the Corvette Z06 can be in a somewhat humorous manner. Can an adult man fit in the trunk? Yes. Will groceries and rolls of bubble wrap fit in the trunk? You bet.
Then we come to fuel economy. In the first day of driving, the car actually managed an impressive 28 mpg combined. Our host achieved this with Eco mode, which shuts down four cylinders, and seriously gentle driving characteristics. As the days marched on, the fuel economy average began to seriously slip down to 18 mpg.
So, can the Corvette Z06 be a daily driver? Sure, but this certainly isn’t the most fun to be had with one, especially with 650 horsepower lurking under the hood.
