We are pleased to be offering this pristine Commemorative Edition Z06. This is a low mileage one-owner motorcar bought new and fully serviced in Temecula, California at Paradise Chevrolet. The Commemorative Edition Z06 (Code RPO Z16) was built to celebrate the amazing success Corvette sustained at the 24 hour race at LeMans. This Z06 was the first production car to be built in North America with a painted carbon fiber hood. 2004 was also the last year of the incredible C5 model Z06.
This car is offered in its original livery of LeMans Blue with the Commemorative Edition striping only available on the Z06 in 2004. Being serial number 116759, this is the 245th out of the 2,025 Commemorative Edition motorcars produced.
The Z06 was offered with the famous LS6 5.7 liter V-8 with 405 bhp. This awe inspiring power is combined with a quick shifting 6-speed manual transmission and a special Commemorative Edition rear end ratio of 3.42.
The Z06 is a performance machine that is refined enough to make an incredibly reliable and comfortable daily driver. Look at the performance specifications below for this motorcar:
|0-60 mph||3.9 sec|
|0-100 mph||9.2 sec|
|0-100-0 mph||13.56 sec|
|1/4 Mile||11.9 sec|
|Skid Pad||1.03 G|
|Top Speed||171 mph (275 km/h)|
|Nürburgring Nordschleife Lap Time||Under 8 minutes|
The 2004 Z06 was one of a very few cars that had performance figures this impressive. The only cars that could come close would cost at least two to three times the price. And all this performance and power can achieve 28 mpg highway!!!
This motorcar was bought at Paradise Chevrolet on January 20, 2004 for a total cost of about $67,000. The owner (and my neighbor), Tim Smith, was a serial Corvette owner having had several Corvettes over the years. When the new 350Z was introduced he acquired one believing that this could be a terrific replacement for his love for Corvettes. Well, it was only a matter of weeks before he realized that he had made a mistake, dumped the 350Z and bought this gorgeous Z06. It has been always meticulously maintained and typically remained covered in a garage. Of course it has a clean CARFAX showing no accidents or any other issues.
We have enjoyed driving this car and it looks and drives as-new. This is an easy to drive motorcar with absolute supercar performance. This car has benefitted from drilled and slotted brake rotors and a quick-shift short throw transmission lever. Since Hal is our in-house Corvette aficionado, Corvette Club member and serial Corvette owner please feel free to contact him with questions at (951) 440-0412 or Contact Us.
This is a tremendous opportunity to acquire an almost as-new limited edition Z06 for a great value. These cars will assuredly appreciate in the future.
