Corvette Z06 weighs 2,660 pounds, packs 625 horsepower and features a high-performance suspension setup.
While the C6 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 comes from the factory ready to storm around a road course, there is plenty of room via the aftermarket. The problem is deciding which components to upgrade and which companies to use when buying those upgrades, especially for a novice racer who has never built a track car before. Of course, that novice can buy a track car that has already been built, but how does he or she know that it has been built correctly?
Fortunately, “about2throwup” posted a C6 Corvette Z06 track car for sale on the forum and in addition to the modification list and pictures, the OP included track videos with lap times that prove that it is built to perform
When the OP listed his wicked C6 Corvette Z06 track car for sale, he provided the following information on the car.

Want to get out of this car to get a C5z donor for Spec Corvette. This car is fast – and capable of even more. It’s turn key for putting down the fastest lap times on any track day.
If you are looking for a Corvette Z06 to serve as a dedicated track car, this is the machine for you. It is street legal and passed California emission testing, but let’s be honest; this car is gutted, and few people are going to want to drive a gutted car on the street with any regularity. However, as track cars go, there is no question that this C6 is the real deal.
Of course, the aerodynamics package is a bit much for most people in terms of a streetcar, but the bottom line with this Corvette is that it is a track beast that can be driven on the street, even in areas with strict emission laws. However, putting street-worthiness aside, this Z06 is a badass machine. From the engine to the suspension to the weight reduction, this Chevy supercar has been modified to dominate at the track and as the videos below show, it does just that.
