When the sixth-generation C6 Corvette debuted in 2005, the American motoring world drew a breath of disbelief. Gone were the pop-up headlamps, which was sad, but in came an updated bodywork that featured a more lithe and agile stance, plus improved interior space, which was glad. This meant that the C6 saw a total of over 215,000 units sold over its lifetime. If you’re seeking one of those, we’ve got a nice 2006 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible Z51 in stock with just 9,123 miles reported, and some tasty options.
This 2006 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible Z51 shows off the Tom Peters design in a special Velocity Yellow Tint Coat which is reportedly a premium paint job. It’s got the Preferred Equipment Group specced, a black convertible top, and rolls on its original five-spoke alloys shod in Goodyear high-performance tires. Out back, you’ve got the characteristic quad exhausts framed within a black rear diffuser that also hosts the back-up lights, whilst the front exposed light clusters feature individual units for the indicators, full and dipped beams. Fog lamps live in the front bumper for added lighting and enhanced visibility. The interior is in Ebony and offers accommodations for two, with heated seats, including memory package. You’ve also got a heads-up display, universal home remote, premium 7-speaker audio system, radio and CD player, power tilt and telescopic steering wheel, dual-zone climate control, power windows, power mirrors and Corvette floor mats. Gaze upon the analog gauge cluster with its large rev counter and 200mph speedometer framed by a quartet of auxiliary gauges, and be transported to the pre-digital-cluster era. If you’ve got luggage, pop the trunk and there’s a small yet usable space that can fit some soft bags.
A Corvette ain’t a Corvette if it ain’t got a V8, and this 2006 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible Z51 packs a 6.0L LS2 V8 that’s rated to put out 400hp and 400lb-ft to the rear wheels via a Tremec T-56 six-speed manual transmission, making it a driving purist’s dream. It’s got a 3.42:1 rear axle ratio, and the Z51 Performance Package has been ticked too.
