2006 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe
2006 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe
A major styling change for the C6 Corvette is non-pop up headlights... not seen on a Corvette since 1962. The base engine for the 2005 Corvette was the 400hp LS2, only 5 HP less than the LS6 engine of the previous year's high performance Z06 model. 2005 was the first year for keyless access and start. A six-speed paddle shift automatic transmission was introduced as an option in 2006. A big styling change for this rounded aero body which is a far cry from the early days of the Corvette's humble beginnings.
Fast forward back to 2006 and this C6 version puts out 400hp and has the first exposed headlights since 1962. This coupe from Bowling Green presents in very good condition with a mere 37,115 miles. This car is a Z51 Performance package with a 6-speed and a smoked glass large top.
Very nice Monterey Red, (maroon), covers the exterior of this open headlight fiberglass car. A smoked glass top and a hatchback of clear glass opens up for extra storage space for this rocket ship. 5-spoke polished wheels are noted all around, and some bling from the rear in the form of dual exhausts peeking out from the center rear. Paint and fiberglass are simply lip-smacking conditions.
With a nicely contrasting color to the maroon exterior, we are met with beige Cashmere leather buckets, and matching tan leather door panels with just a touch of black accenting. Tastefully mixed with dark vinyl the dash shows a hint of the beige at the bottom, and mixes in tan, gray and black for the center console. Seat heaters, climate control, a single disc CD player with the standard AM/FM radio, anti-skid button mode, power windows, power locks and power seats with 2 position memory, make this red interior even more spicy! One more note about the beige carpeting covering the floor…beautiful!
A 6.2 Liter V8 with electronic fuel injection can be seen emblazoned with LS2 logos and is attached to a T56 6-speed manual transmission. The rear axle weighs in at 3.42.
With the use of many lightweight materials, we see no corrosion, no surface rust, and all structurally sound framing and floor pans. 4-wheel power disc brakes are seen, and this C6's suspension consisted of independent unequal-length double wishbones with transverse fiberglass mono-leaf springs. Power disc braking is on all 4 corners.
She fired right up and a light touch of the accelerator and I can feel the Z51 package kicking in. The car handles like it's on rails, and with all the creature comforts of conveniences added in, I think I'll stay for a while. I kept getting a left front tire flat warning, although the tire was at 30psi?
With its beautiful Cashmere leather interior mating with the Monterey Red exterior, it does not get any better than this with the color combination. A clean overall engine bay, and well performing engine and transmission, this open headlamp version of the C6 is a turnkey sports car awaiting action.
