Vehicle Description The 2001 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 was the first year to bring back this ultra-hot Corvette designation. But this is more than just history at a value price. When you check out the ultra-slick and dark-as- midnight presentation of this low-mileage 385 hp coupe, you'll know why this is an instant classic. Z06 is one of those codes only reserved for serious tire-burning Corvettes. So enthusiasts knew to pay attention in 2001 when it was resurrected for a special edition C5. Not only did they add extra power, but also they utilized the strongest and lightest version of the Corvette available - the Fixed Roof Coupe (FRC). And because this car had an instant significance, it has been treated with respect since day one. The odometer is believed to reflect the actual mileage (mileage is exempt on FL title), and that means this has averaged less than 600 miles annually. The factory black paint still has an awesome shine, and that gives this the look of a dark mirror. The sunlight loves to highlight the deep bows of the long hood, subtle curves of the fixed roof, and the nearly flat rear deck. And while everything from the tinted windows to the tinted brake lights give this a mean midnight attitude, the red brake calipers give a hint that this Z06 is out for blood. Inside is exactly what you expect from a special Corvette: a loaded interior that's comfortable for two. The black leather buckets match the dark interior, and just like the exterior, the special Z06 stitching provides a great bold red detail. Low mileage means little seat time, so everything is in top condition. You'll never get tired of watching the gauges do their dance every time you start the engine. And more than just track-focused, this car offers plenty of luxuries, such as dual zone A/C automatic climate control, power steering, power windows, keyless entry, power mirrors, power seats, cruise control, and a premium AM/FM/CD stereo system with Bose speakers. Because this is a modern classic, it also means modern safety features such as dual airbags and anti-lock brakes. Plus, the FRC style body has a trunk that can truly carry a weekend's worth of luggage (including your racing suit and helmet.) Even the engine bay continues the theme of a blackout package with some bold red detail. This is the correct 5.7-liter LS6 motor, and Chevy built this fuel-injected powerhouse to be a juggernaut with 385 horsepower. You have complete control over all the power and fury this V8 brings thanks to the six- speed manual transmission. As a true competition machine, this also received its own suspension upgrade package to make the fully independent suspension perform at its best during high speeds. And keeping everything in control is also the large four-wheel disc brake package and Goodyear Eagle F1 rubber on those special Z06 alloys. This is the first year for the fire-breathing C5 Z06, and its preserved in its full midnight appearance. It even comes with nice documentation, like the original bill of sale, dealer invoice, and owner's manual. It's a two-owner instant collectible treated with true respect. Call today!!!
