The C8 Corvette Z06 is a highly desirable track-focused weapon with a dedicated following from enthusiasts and owners alike. As a result, many hold the C8 Z06 in high regard thanks to its healthy combination of an exhilarating drivetrain plus a wide body configuration. With that in mind, it may be difficult for some to watch this video of a 2024 Corvette Z06 falling off a lift at a shop.
According to the video description, the brand-new C8 Z06 was getting some work done (at what appears to be a Chevy dealership) while the lift arm wasn’t positioned properly. For whatever reason, something upset the delicate balance and the Vette came crashing back down to Earth. As further insult to injury, the lift arm sliced through the convertible like hot butter.
As terrible of an accident as this is, there thankfully appears to be no one under the 2024 Z06 when it fell.
In other Corvette-related news, General Motors has set ownership requirements for buyers of the 2024 Z06. Buyers are required to sign a document that states that if they decide to sell the Vette within six months of taking delivery, they will be ineligible to make a vehicle reservation or place a sold order with a dealer for future high-demand models.
Additionally, the 2024 Corvette Z06’s bumper-to-bumper, powertrain, sheet metal, tire, and accessory coverages will be voided. In this scenario, owners would need to communicate the loss of warranty coverage to the second-hand buyer.
Under the hood, the C8 Corvette Z06 features the naturally-aspirated 5.5L V8 LT6 gasoline engine, which is rated at 670 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. Output is routed to the rear wheels through the GM eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
