The seventh generation or C7 Corvette marked the last time a Corvette would string out its V8 ahead of the passenger cabin before the C8 moved it behind the two seats and went chasing entry-level supercars. Everyone wants a Corvette in their lives at some point, and that's why cars like this 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray 3LT Z51 Coupe are highly desirable. Counting 60,000 miles since new, this example also bears the Z51 performance package for added thrills and a special surprise beneath the hood.
Shark Gray Metallic is the official name of the color that adorns this 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray 3LT Z51 Coupe, and with the car's design, it's not hard to see the shark-like resemblance. The menacing stance is complete with a carbon-fiber hood, removable roof panel, and rear spoiler. The wheels are painted chrome aluminum units measuring 19 inches up front and 20 inches at the rear. The current owner tells us that they wear new Toyo R88 tires. The external rear view mirrors are powered and heated, and we can also see custom decals, including a black skull motif on the hood. The interior is decked out in gray and bears the 3LT Preferred Equipment Group. It's also got a MyLink audio system, Nappa leather inserts, and custom leather-wrapped steering wheel, door cards, and console. Occupants sit on electrically adjustable, heated, and ventilated GT bucket seats and are treated to dual-zone climate control and a Bose surround sound system as part of the luxury amenities. The driver also gets an analog-digital combination instrument cluster, heads-up display, and multifunction steering wheel. Behind the two seats is a spacious luggage area that allows this Corvette to engage in a spot of grand touring if a cross-country trip is on your mind.
This 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray 3LT Z51 Coupe comes with the 6.2L LT1 V8, however, that's not the whole story. Pop the hood, and you can see that extensive work has been done, most notably the installation of a Paxton supercharger. This takes output from 460hp to 885hp if the little badges dotted around the car are to be believed. Power goes to the rear wheels via a seven-speed Tremec manual transmission. The Z51 performance package has also been installed on this car, bringing Z51 performance suspension, performance brakes with slotted brake rotors, special Z51 gear ratios, and multi-mode performance exhaust to the table.
