Description:
This 2002 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 represents the return to the meanest track-ready Corvettes around, and so it\'s great to have a dark look and a few race-inspired upgrades. Plus, it\'s hard to beat a low-mileage lightweight coupe with a 405 horsepower V8, six-speed stick, and sport-tuned suspension. The Z06 looks awesome. It blended the ultra-sleek style of the C5 Corvette with a competition-ready look from the Fixed Roof Coupe and special sides with extra brake cooling ducts included. It really was built to be the Corvette that you\'d drive to the racetrack and be an instant contender. And this track-day style is furthered on this one with upgrades like the special cowl hood and an adjustable/removable carbon fiber rear spoiler. A coupe this mean deserves to be render in black, and the red taillights and brake calipers make it look like it\'s out for blood. But tough-as-nails doesn\'t mean looking rough-as-nails. This is a one-owner car. So while it has been enjoyed for nearly two decades, it still retains the clean body panels and good shine that comes with respect. If you like the way the black with hints of red look on the exterior, then you\'re going to love the interior. Chevrolet offered a Torch Red and Black leather two-tone exclusively for the Z06, and it really give this a bold and sinister feeling inside. Of course, you also get a coddled and comfortable feeling thanks to a long list of features. It includes dual-zone automatic A/C climate control, power seats, power steering, power windows, keyless entry, power mirrors, power seats, cruise control, dual airbags, anti-lock brakes, and a premium AM/FM/CD stereo system with Bose speakers. Even with all these desirable features, nothing gets in the way of a true driver-focused machine. The outstanding bolstering on the bucket seat, placement of the stick shift, and grip of the steering wheel leather all get you ready for a speedy experience. And the head-up display means you never even need to take your eyes off the road ahead. Just like the interior and exterior, the engine bay also has a deep and dark look with just the right bold red for effect. This is the numbers-matching LS1 V8, and it\'s producing 405 horsepower in a second-year Z06 like this. To put that into perspective, that\'s eight percent MORE power than the first years of the King of the Hill C4 ZR1. It fires up with the ease of a modern fuel-injected motor, and its smoothness hides just how awesome the power really is. And you have complete control over all the sound and fury the V8 brings thanks to the six-speed manual transmission. As a true competition machine, the upgraded suspension package allows this fully independent setup to perform at its best during high speeds. And keeping everything in control is also the large four-wheel power disc brake package and Continental Extreme Contact performance tires. Complete with maintenance records, this is a low-mileage one-owner car. It has a great look from the right features, upgrades, and care. So it makes for a terrific street and track machine offered for a terrific price. Call today!!!
