    1st Z06 Completed: 9:26 AM Today!


    BGAP Z06 Update:1st Z06 Completed.

    Or, "luck beats the heck out of brains anytime," for just happened to be in the right place at the right time as per below...

    The line was not moving at 6:12 AM start of shift this morning, after Friday's frame-shop robot wiring failure, but did start at 8:46 AM. Z06's continued to move toward the finish line, with VIN 001, Rick Hendrick's black Z06 being the first one (no surprise) and it came off the line at 9:26 AM. Happened to luckily be at that exact spot as part of my public tour. Jeff LaMarche and other top BGAP Plant staff were there for photographs, etc.


    The production rate continues to be just under 7 Z06's per hour. Saw a rainbow of colors, in fact can not think of a color of Z06 that I did not see.

    In response to earlier-asked questions, splitter and skirts are not attached prior to the dealership PDI, so can not determine the specific appearance of the Stage 1 splitter. As noted earlier, EVERY Z06 spoiler is carbon flash metallic, regardless of whether it is a Stage 1, 2 or Z07 and regardless of whether one selects CFZ or CFZ.

    Sweet! Did you get a closer look at a Stage-1's rear spoiler (if any were on the line during your tour)?

    Thanks John! That's great luck, with a dash of smarts being thrown in!

    Understand about splitters and skirts....the video on YouTube (Tadge talking about Z06 aerodynamics posted last week) gives a very good look at stage 1 aero....from that, splitter appears to me (unfortunately) to look like same material as splash guards are made of.

    I would be curious if you could find out about the attachment points/methods for the stage one spoiler versus the stage2/3 one....as many of us "constrained" into stage 1 would like to upgrade after the fact to the stage 2/3 spoiler....does it attach at the same points, or are different holes required? Do either use double sided adhesive? IN other words - what's involved in removing stage one spoiler and replacing with stage 2/3?
    Laguna Blue Z06 with stage 1 aero. Black mirrors, calipers & dual full length stripe. Spectra Gray Wheels, with Dark Gray 3LZ interior. Weapon X Splitter & Rockers. VIN # 1001. My personal "smile-maker"

    Awesome post John...thanks! That had to be pretty cool to witness. I'm certainly jealous. My VY Z with red calipers should be on the line today or tomorrow. Just in time for the snow and ice storm here in MN

    A closer look but still (so far further away than I would like), but still looks just like (identical) to a Z-51 spoiler, only wider. It is a glossy carbon flash black metallic. Going back for another tour here
    soon.

    Please see update, probable "edit" in post below!

    That's great news for me, because I didn't like the versions we have been seeing on what were presumably Stage 1 cars.
    Thanks for the update!

    John is going to go through so many tours now, it'll look like Bill Murray in Ground Hog Day. Ha.
    Great scoop, John. Thanks.

    I can only assume that it, being Mr. Hendrick's Z06, it will be the top-o-the line model. Z07 package.

    It does look stinking MEAN all black with those red calipers.
