This automobile is the fastest and-believe it or not, the most fuel-efficient Corvette ever rolled out. Its distinct design and uncompromising amenities put this roadster at the head of its class. Performance-wise, the Corvette Z06 compares favorably with the world's most revered exotic fantasy vehicles. It is faster than a Ferrari F430. Albeit, we never would encourage such behind-the-wheel behavior, the top speed on the Z06 is an unearthly 198 miles per hour! Zooming from zero to 60 in less than four seconds, life in the fast lane has never been accelerated to such an astonishing level.

The Z06 comes in a two-door, hatchback coupe with a fixed roof and rear-drive. The distinction of this car compared to previous years? models is in its revamped brake system. When a car moves this fast, the ability to stop promptly is, to say the least, equally important as its face-altering acceleration. In both facets, the Z06 delivers flawlessly.

The Z06 handles light and precise. A newly designed three-spoke steering wheel, which is a tad smaller than preceding models, provides a more agile, performance-oriented feel. The interior features two-tone leather seats with the Z06?s logo embroidered with contrasting stitching. Standard features include HID lighting, fog lamps, leather seating, dual-zone air conditioning and a cabin air filtration system. The sleek style of the gadgetry strewn across the dashboard is dazzling and racy.

Hatched from dizzying heights of professional racing success, perhaps the Corvette Z06's greatest feature is that it is a daily, drivable high-performance vehicle.
