A 2006 Chevy Corvette Z06 has been listed for sale via online car auction site Bring-A-Trailer, representing a rare opportunity to own a like-new example of this legendary 7.0-liter V8 sports car.
This car, located in Sioux City, Iowa, was ordered in the Victory Red exterior paint color and features an Ebony leather interior. The original owner also opted for the 2LZ Equipment Group, which added creature comforts like sports seats, a six-way power passenger seat, a cargo net and luggage shade and side impact airbags. Despite the owner’s apparent apprehension for driving the vehicle, they went ahead and ordered a set of staggered OEM GM Speedline Spyder-style wheels for it, which we must say do look great. The wheels are wrapped in a nice set of Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires, which were only mounted in July 2020. A set of Carbotech brake pads was also installed around this time.
Readers of this site will be very familiar with the C6 Corvette Z06’s 7.0-liter LS7 V8 engine, which was rated at 505 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque in this application. All this naturally aspirated American power is sent to the rear wheels through a six-speed manual transmission and a rear limited slip differential.
In addition to a mint Corvette Z06, the winning bidder of this sale will receive all OEM manufacturer’s literature, a window sticker, initial production and purchase documents, service records and two keys with fobs. Bidding sits at $40,000 as of this writing, although with five days still left before the gavel falls, we’re willing to bet this collector’s grade Corvette will sell for a bit more than that.
