'18 Z06/Z07 Coupe, 7-spd

by Jon from Wimberley, TX | May 23, 2020

This is my 3rd Vette & it's the best one yet. It offers good looks, great handling, & a comfortable interior at an affordable price. I've owned my '18 Z06 for almost 2 years now & I have a bit over 6K miles on it. I wanted to get a front engine Z06 with a manual transmission while I still could since I knew that both were going away for good in the new C8. This C7 Z06 still puts a smile on my face every time I tap into the 650hp/650 lb.-ft. of torque. Just keep your foot out of it if you want to get decent gas mileage because once you tap into the supercharger the car gets thirsty. Lol I have the optional Z07 performance pkg. which comes with the huge carbon ceramic brakes (bonus = no brake dust all over your wheels), Michelin Sport Cup 2 tires (since changed out to a more usable year around Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 + ZP), & the stiffer suspension compared to a standard Z06. The suspension differences between a Z06/Z07 & a standard Z06 are: 1. The springs, shocks, Magnetic Selective Ride Control (MSRC) calibration, and stabilizer bar bushings are different between the two. 2. The front spring has a 62% higher rate on the Z07 than the standard Z06. The rear spring has a 22% higher rate on the Z07 than the standard Z06. 3. The Magnetic Selective Ride Control shocks on the Z07 have a tighter gap which means a higher “passive” curve in addition to a more aggressive MSRC damping tuning. 4. The different stabilizer bar bushings help the Z07 achieve an appropriate understeer level. Even so the ride isn't overly stiff, even in sport mode which is my preferred driving mode, as long as you have decent roads. It's very buttoned down & handles precisely. If the roads get a bit rough or you just want to cruise comfortably just turn the adjustable suspension over to 'Tour' mode & it turns into a a relatively quiet GT car perfect for longer road trips. Don't let a C7 Z06 with the Z07 performance pkg. (i.e. stiffer suspension) scare you away if you're looking at one. I can't wait to see how the new C8 Z06 turns out.

Most reliable and fun to drive Corvette ever!

C7 most value for the money for a sports car. I will never sell it. Makes me happy every time I drive it. Stingray Z51 unbelievable performance 460 HP!

Real head turner, a true sports car that I’ve enjo

by Ken from Yorktown VA | January 06, 2020

Great car, no complaints at all, now I’m moving to the new 2020 model. It is very comfortable and the supercharged engine develops 650 HP, it’s a real horse to hold.

2018 Chevrolet Corvette Overview

The 2018 Chevrolet Corvette is a sports car that comes as a coupe or a convertible. Now in its seventh generation, the Corvette is built on a lightweight aluminum frame with carbon fiber body panels. This year, it remains largely unchanged.

Both the coupe and the convertible has four trim levels: the base Stingray, Stingray Z51, Grand Sport, and Z06. The Z51 Performance Package for the Stingray includes performance brakes, dry sump oil system, performance suspension, unique gear ratios, an electronic limited-slip differential, and a differential cooler.

Making its return is the high-performance Z06, which comes with a 650-hp, supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 with 650 pounds-feet of torque. The naturally-aspirated Grand Sport trim is positioned between the Stingray and Z06. It is tuned to produce 460-hp using the same 6.2-liter V-8 from the Stingray as well. Both the Grand Sport and Z06 have the available Z07 package which includes performance-tuned suspension, magnetic selective ride control, Brembo carbon ceramic brakes, carbon-fiber package, and summer performance tires.
