C8 Section Re-Organization, With Our New “Mid Engine Exterior/Interior Pictures, Videos and Renderings” Section

MECF members asked for our segregating pictures, renderings and videos into one area; looking ahead, that section will become our most viewed area once you get your C8’s. Pre-existing threads that fit are now being moved. Thank you for the suggestion!

  • 2018.5 z06

    Just got another Z06 last month. Brings me to 3 in the garage. My 2015 M7, 2017 A8 now the 2018 M7.

    GM says they made 2353 Z06's out a total of 9800 or so 2018 C7's. They stopped them January 22nd. I found this car is number 2391 was made on 1-25-18/ 1-26/18 in the new plant and could be the last or one of the last 2018's made plus I'm thinking it has the new 2019 upgrades.
    Car runs and shifts far the best yet. 2LZ w/ carbon flash aero package, Nav/PDR . Found it at 18 percent off and 0 percent interest just love the car. But now the 2015 will go soon! I also found a new 2018 GMC S Click image for larger version

      Thanks JB!
      Just great put 35k on that car. So I just put it back to bone stock. All mods are going on the new car. But the Z06 is the best Corvette ever. IMO I am
      on number 10 right now. With the 2300 and headers and 800 hp it is hard to touch.
      I also put the 2300 and headers on my 2017 A8 as well! Because I had such good results with that package and 800hp plus on pump 92 on the 2015. I am doing the 2018-2019 which has larger fuel pump and should do even better. Plus having the new car 850 hp and less than 1,000 miles sounds great to me. This 2018 is improved alot over my early 2015,

        What fun you are having. Exciting just to read about your warp speed car!
        So many questions about the ME right now, but the answers are nicely, though slowly, coming out.

            The license plate on my car would really fit on yours.

              Oregon is the best state in the country to buy a new car. Love the 4 year tags!
              '
              my over 90 k 2018 msrp was under 75k with 4 year tag included even with the new luxury tax they added.

                investing in the Z06's with 0 plans for C8 till maybe the 800hp plus model. The Z06 with the 2300 is a lighter faster car than most anything you could buy.

                  Cool...800 hp c8 is probably due at least a year after launch.

                    New factory build
                    Silver is rare on 2018's with only 99 cars and almost 80 percent were A8's. Then this 2018 is vin 2391 GM says only made 2353 2018's. Plus the 1/25 2018 build date they stopped
                    making 2018's that week. This might be the last 2018 made.C7 Z06's will go down as the best Corvette/FE to date and will really hold the dollar.
                    Not that many made in M7.

                      Just finished the tune on the A8 with the big 4 2300/ ARH 2inch / Halltech intake / ZR1 TB did 650 /650 rwhp/rwtq Mustang dyno numbers.

                      Absolute beast to drive! plus the 26 mpg I pulled on the HWY with the at or near 800 crank hp. Amazing machine GM should have built so I built 2 and a 3rd soon.
                      My new stock 2018 M7 feels like a turtle after driving the 800hp A8

                          Lot's of fun now but the fun really begins when It drives any from stock dodge or Chevy or Ford ! Including big brother. I'm hitting 110-120 rwhp over stock.

                              Thank you! I'm Quite Proud of my DIY machines. The tuner is the major player! Anyone can bolt on the 2300 and the other mods.
                              Those mods esp the 2300 are game changers for the Z06. Runs cooler, Cooler air charge, less weight ,bumps the hp considerably . Maggy makes a better charger than who ever makes the ones for GM.
                              The difference is covered up by the high speed pulley's GM uses on the z06. The 2300 blower speed could be increased easily. Mine just made 13 psi with just the standard upper.
                              With 2 inch headers installed. Makes more HP than the new ZR1 with less weight. The Z06 is an amazing rocket ship with either the A8 or the M7 with these 4 mods.
