As far as bang for the buck goes, it simply doesnt get much better than a Z06. Producing 405 hp from its 5.7 liter LS6 motor, this 6 speed vette would make a great addition to your garage. Finished in Millennium Yellow with black leather seats, its exterior matches its on-the-road personality. The odometer reads just over 44,000 miles and has had 4 local adult owners. Regardless of age, the Z06 is a timeless performance machine and the following review still rings true today.
_The 2003 Z06's 5.7-liter LS6 V-8 cranks out 405 hp and 400 lb.-ft. of torque, enough to launch it from 0 to 60 mph in four seconds flat, and a tick over 12 seconds through the quarter-mile at 116 mph. Standard '03 Corvette coupes and convertibles are good for "only" about 4.5 seconds from 0 to 60 and 12.8 seconds in the quarter-mile at 114 mph. By further contrast, the heavier, more brutal Viper hits 60 mph in about four seconds and blasts through the quarter-mile in 12.2 seconds at nearly 120 mph.
Are those comparisons important to you? And do you need that performance at a semi-affordable price? If so, then this is your sports car because it delivers that performanceplus legitimate super-car handling and braking and near-luxury quiet, comfort and conveniencefor about $51,000, a price unmatched by anything comparable on the planet.
Introduced in 2001 as a lightweight, ultra-performance coupe with a 6-speed manual transmission and a new 385-hp LS6 version of the 5.7-liter LS1 Corvette engine, the Z06 was the closest factory Vette in modern times to a track-ready racer. Calling it "simply the quickest, best handling production Corvette ever," Chevy said it was "aimed directly at diehard performance enthusiasts." For 2002, it got a 20-hp bump and a slew of additional refinements.
The Z06 designation honors the efforts of Zora Arkus-Duntov, Corvette's legendary first chief engineer who in 1963 created the original Z06 package, which was intended to make the then-new Sting Ray race-ready right out of the showroom. The current 405-hp LS6 engine is named for another Duntov creation, the 425-horse (gross) LS6 big-block V-8 introduced in 1971. Only 188 Corvettes were sold with that original LS6 engine, whichsecond only in power to the legendary L88 racing engine available from 1967 to 1969occupies a special niche in the Corvette legend.
