2001 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 (First Year C5 Z06)

The engine in this car was replaced under warranty at 12,789 miles due to block porosity, with a new serialized (numbers matching) complete LS6 engine, thus the engine actual mileage is 16,356.
I drove this car round trip on Route 66, traveling almost every original section of the 1927, 1932, and 1945 'alignments', and it was comfortable, capable, and completely enjoyable, while returning 27.5 MPG for the run.

This is a prime example of the car that marked Corvette’s true realization of super-car status. The C5’s first front-mid engine, rear trans-axle, hydro-formed space frame configuration would form the basis for all Corvettes until the mid-engine eighth generation. While the C5 Z06 does not possess the absolute handling limits of the C6 Z06 that I have for sale on this website, it presents the driver with a more raw and elemental version of Corvette. The car is well balanced, reliable and predictable at it’s limits, and more visceral than subsequent generations. The vehicle electronics are all fully functional, have been very reliable to date, and while lacking heads up display (HUD first available on Z06 for 2002), there is the benefit of simplicity, and the opportunity to install a current head unit without impacting the integrity or originality of the car.
