  • Four Z06 Plus One Sighting in Ohio

    A good friend of mine, Roger, made my day this morning.

    Roger checked into the hotel outside Columbus, Ohio Tuesday night and noticed a C8 parked out back. Upon further investigation, lo and behold four Z06 test mules were staying in the hotel. Roger is on the list to buy a C8 Z06 so is very aware of this car.

    Next morning Roger was able to listen to them as they left the hotel parking lot and accelerate onto the freeway. The exhaust sound of four of the Z06's was exceptional! The last one drove by leaving the parking lot in silent mode, no exhaust sound, even getting up on the freeway. Apparently moving under all electric power. Assuming the E Ray.

    Here are some photos and video Roger was able to take. Security was very tight.

    Hope you enjoy them as much as Roger and I have.

    Thanks Roger!




    From the below videos…

    Thanks so much for these video's. Looking at the first video there appears to be an Torch Red Dipped interior that I have not seen before. Can you confirm what he saw in person?

      The videos pretty much sum up what Roger saw.

      Obviously they were the staff was not talking.

      Looks like one HTS in the batch.

      I did notice the red interior that was pretty striking!

          I also noticed the red headliner, sunvisors and a-pillers in the first video.

            The Stingray may be prettier. Long view.

            The quite Mode is as sedated as the Stingray's. It May have a soft-surprise suspension mode to match. I am assuming that is the way it will be.

            My C5 Z06 is always thunder, always stiff. The C8 Z06, I am guessing, will prove to be widely and notoriously versatile. October Surprise?

                Did anyone else notice that even on the Z07, that the side rocker is very different? Hmmm.

                  Anyone think the big ol' CB antenna will be standard? Smokey and the Bandit time! 😂

                  I'm assuming the possible Eray sighting wasn't captured on video as I clearly heard exhaust, and most likely FPC exhaust, on the videos posted.

                    With “whl3’s”’s confirmation we just were able to verify my belief that drivin the first car is Mike Hurley, Senior Corvette Engineer. Mike’s work home is Milford Proving Grounds.

                    Thanks Mike for insuring we have a first class Z06!

                          Mike is one of the super good guys. Happiest when doing his job in the background. He was at the Nurburgring. Never wants any credit or attention, but sorry Mike for we got you in the public eye today.

                            Remember the 47 C8 videos in “Corvette Academy? If not, they can be found/re-found by opening up YouTube and in the search box typing in “Corvette Academy.” You will have all 47 to choose from.

                            Mike Hurley did the one there on the 4th generation mag ride that pioneered with the C8:
