2015 Corvette Z06 Test 600x346 at 2015 Corvette Z06 Tested on Road and Track

As the new 2015 Corvette Z06 gears up to hit the market early next year and give all the Euro super cars a good run for their money with its mix of insane power and insanely reasonable price tag, Chevy sends a yellow example to Motor Trend for a bearded Carlos Lago to put it through a whole battery of tests.

As usual, the Z06 is subjected to performance test on the skid pad but not before it’s proven its numbers with a VBox. Then we hit the road to see how pleasant, or otherwise, the car is to live with. It is, after all, a road car. Last but not least, a track test is in order to determine if this Corvette’s man parts are more substantial than those of the rivals!
