Better Than Just A Z06!

Mike Basile proposes to girlfriend of 8 years Stacy Sulima.

Mike Basile and girlfriend of eight years Stacy Sulima had been planning a visit to the National Corvette Museum for a few weeks, primarily to take delivery of Mike’s new 2016 Z06 through the R8C Museum Delivery Program. But what Stacy didn’t know was that Mike was also planning to ‘pop the question’ during the visit.

“When I figured out when the delivery date was going to be then I made the decision that it would be the time,” Mike said.

Stacy explained that they had been living together for a few years and an engagement was inevitable. “We knew it would eventually happen. It was just a matter of when is the right time.”

Poised on the Museum’s Corvette Boulevard, delivery host Jonathon Tabor tells Mike that his penalty time is up. After which, Mike drops to one knee and proposes to Stacy.

The running joke between Mike and Stacy was that they were in ‘penalty time.’ “We had been dating for seven years and Stacy was like, ‘now I’m eligible’ but I told her no, it’s like soccer. You don’t know when penalty time is going to end.”

Stacy laughed. “Apparently penalty time is one year and three days!”

After teasing Mike about waiting so long to finally propose he joked that “you gotta weed out the bad ones!”

Mike and Stacy live just outside of Philadelphia and are members of the Skyline Drive Corvette Club. Mike also owns a 2003 Corvette with 289,000

StingRay Gets Another "Best" Award

Nov 16, 2015 - 7:21 PM - by elegant
Another car show award season starts, this one with Kelly Blue Book just awarding the 2016 StingRay the "Best 2016 Performance Car" award!

This year's performance car category was crowded with a number of strong contenders ranging from the scrappy and much-anticipated 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata to the pavement pounding 2016 Ford Shelby GT 350. But it was last year's winner, the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, that carried the day on the strength of overall performance that compares favorably with sports cars costing tens of thousands of dollars more. But beyond stellar performance, the 2016 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray offers the kind of comfort and drivability that takes it from a weekend- or special occasion-only fun car to a truly engaging vehicle perfectly suited as a daily driver.

Muscular V8 power

With 455 horsepower on tap from its 6.2-liter V8 engine, the Corvette Stingray offers the visceral off-the-line thrills that are pure old-school American muscle car. And yet, this pushrod V8 is infused with enough high tech, including cylinder deactivation, that it returns mileage competitive with most midsize sedans, with ratings of 17 mpg city and 29 mpg highway. Better yet, it offers world class sports car performance without having to charge a gas guzzler tax. Buyers can choose from either a 7-speed manual (with a cool automatic rev-matching downshift feature) or a slick 8-speed automatic (which also blips the throttle when selecting a lower gear). This deep reserve of power is also complemented by communicative steering, excellent brakes and, in our test car, the taut but supple Z51 performance suspension.

New Z06 Parts Enhance Corvette Stingray Performance

Nov 05, 2015 - 3:19 PM - by DrumsOfGrohl

Broad range of chassis, suspension and aero components enhance capability

PAHRUMP, Nev. Chevrolet today and drivers from the Ron Fellows Corvette high-performance driving school at the Spring Mountain track demonstrated Stingray models enhanced with components from a new lineup of Z06-based performance parts.

They're designed for 2014+ Stingray models, including Z51-equipped cars.

"We've selected specific components from the Corvette Z06 and engineered them to fit the award-winning Stingray," said Jim Campbell, Chevrolet U.S. vice president of Performance Vehicles and Motorsports. "These Z06 parts enhance the handling, braking, cooling and downforce performance of the Stingray."

Ron Fellows, champion Corvette Racing driver, collaborated with Chevrolet Performance engineers on the all-new portfolio. Many will be used in cars in the new Michelin Corvette Challenge racing series, which was developed with Fellows and will run a 15-race schedule starting in February 2016.

"Here at Spring Mountain, we drive the Corvette Stingray and Z06 at their limits nearly every day, so we're in a unique position to recognize the parts that are most effective," said Ron Fellows. "The effect of the new, Z06-based parts on the Stingray's track capability is dramatic. They take the Stingray's already great stopping and cornering capabilities to yet another exciting level of stability and precision."

Calling all racers (with the means to buy an enhanced Corvette Stingray Z51 Coupe)!

Like the days of old where Corvettes were so good at racing that they had their own Challenge series, Spring Mountain will be hosting a spec-Corvette racing series kicking off in early 2016.

The Michelin Corvette Challenge will feature 15 races over eight weekends in 2016 where participants will race identical track-ready Corvette Stingray Z51 Coupes on Spring Mountain’s 6.1 mile track.

Chevrolet showed off the Corvette Stingray Track Day Concept which features the Z06-based performance parts that will be used in the spec-racing series.

“The Corvette Stingray is one of the most track-capable production cars available and our enhancements simply augment the production specs to help ensure durability for a dedicated racing life,” said Ron Fellows. “With the cars mechanically on equal footing, driver skill will be the determining factor in the rankings, which should make it a very exciting series.”

To race in the Michelin Corvette Challenge, competitors will be buying new Corvette Stingray Z51 coupes which are then shipped to the Spring Mountain facility outside Las Vegas in Pahrump, NV. The Stingrays will receive a variety of new Z06-based performance parts to enhance the handling, braking, cooling and downforce.

LAS VEGAS — When the Z06 rejoined the Corvette lineup in 2015 as the most capable model in the car's long, storied history, it also joined an elite fraternity of the world's most capable supercars — with performance proven on the track, including winning Car and Driver's 2015 Lightning Lap evaluation.

The Corvette Z06's capability is derived in no small part from technology and experience leveraged from the championship Corvette Racing program. That connection is celebrated with the 2016 C7.R Edition.

It's offered in Corvette Racing's signature yellow livery — or black — with coordinated exterior and interior accents. Only 650 will be built (500 for the U.S. market), all with the Z07 Performance Package with carbon ceramic brakes, and a specially serialized vehicle identification number.

The content and unique features include:
- Offered on coupe and convertible models with 3LZ trim
- C7.R Edition graphics package
- Z07 Performance Package with Brembo carbon ceramic brakes and Michelin PS Cup 2 tires
- Yellow brake calipers
- Black wheels with yellow accent stripe and Corvette Racing-logo center caps
- Visible carbon fiber ground effects package
- New visible carbon fiber hood section
- Grilles and vents finished in Spectra Gray Metallic
- Jet Black leather interior with sueded microfiber accents on the instrument panel and doors
- Sueded microfiber-trimmed Competition Sport Seats, steering wheel and shifter
- Yellow contrast stitching throughout the interior
- Carbon fiber interior trim package (high-gloss)
- Corvette Racing sill plates
- Numbered C7.R Edition interior plaque showing the build number, starting with VIN 700001
- Special indoor car cover with C7.R graphics.

2016 Corvette Z06 details
The Corvette Z06's capability is rooted in its LT4 supercharged 6.2L V-8 engine, which is SAE-certified at 650 horsepower (485 kW) at 6,400 rpm and 650 lb-ft of torque (881 Nm) at 3,600 rpm — making... [Read More]
