The 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 will soon begin hitting dealerships around the USA and with this first wave of the most track capable Corvette of all time, it doesn’t come as a surprise that they are already listed on eBay – but it does come as a surprise that the new Z06 Corvette is available online with prices that range from thousands under MSRP to tens of thousands over, reports Patrick Rall from TorqueNews.com.

The 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is hitting the market with some very big shoes to fill. Since before we knew any of the specifics on the C7 Z06, it has been billed by the automaker is the most track capable Corvette of all time and with the racing history of the Corvette name – that is a serious claim to back up. Also, even before we knew how much the 2015 Corvette Z06 would cost, it was widely speculated that there would be massive dealership markups for the first units and with those first units expected to arrive soon, the first eBay listings have popped up.

A quick search of eBay Motors has revealed 3 listings for the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 coupe and one for the 2015 Corvette Z06 Convertible. From those 3 coupe listings, we see one that has a stunningly low price and two that have predictably high prices, while the sole Z06 convertible has a price that is well above the base price, but it is not a “base model” Z06.

The 2015 Corvette Z06 Coupe Under MSRP
The most interesting listing for the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 coupes is the one that is currently way, way below MSRP. The Arctic White Corvette Z06 being sold by eBay user platinum66 is currently listed with a bidding price of just $10,000, although the reserve has not yet been met. This car is loaded to the hilt with the Z07 package, the 3LZ trim level, a bunch of optional aesthetic goodies and an Adrenaline Red interior – a car which the person listing this Z06 claims which has an MSRP of $105,730.

We do not know what the reserve price is right now, but this listing could... [Read More]

Lingenfelter/ACS Stingray C7s Steal SEMA 2014

Nov 24, 2014 - 10:55 AM - by NickJ

Arguably the world’s craziest car show, Las Vegas’ SEMA 2014 lived up to the hype with some staggering exhibits and one of our very own Supporting Vendors, ACS, were there to enjoy the madness. SEMA boasted everything from super wide-bodied Ferraris and Mona Lisa paint-jobs to insanely camouflaged monster trucks but two Corvette C7s stood out from the show to show class and performance.


Mechanically speaking both cars are the same – 2014 Chevrolet C7 Corvette Stingray and both are equipped with a range of our stunning RTM and carbon fiber parts to boost performance and style, while similarly both cars have been through the Lingenfelter mill receiving one heck of an engine upgrade as detailed below.

Lingenfelter C7 Corvette Stingray 378 CID Edelbrock E Force TVS2300 Supercharged LT1 700 Horsepower Engine Package

This engine upgrade gifts each C7 700 HP and 665 FT LBS of Torque, which when you consider that even the basic Stingray C7 is one beast of a performance car, is more than enough to whet the appetite of even the most demanding performance car enthusiast. This is the second level of a range of three packages (the third offers 750 HP!) and it starts with the supercharger, adding CNC ported cylinder heads along with a custom camshaft, which combined elevates the LT1 up to 700 horsepower.

In essence the Lingenfelter bring the following to the table:
  • Edelbrock E-Force TVS2300 intercooled supercharger system
  • Lingenfelter CNC ported LT1 Cylinder Heads
  • Lingenfelter dual valve springs, titanium retainers
  • 10 degree locks
  • Lingenfelter supercharger camshaft by Competition Cams
  • High Flow Green Air Filter

Z06 7-M Convertibles Moving To Production!

Nov 19, 2014 - 11:44 AM - by elegant
Thanks to Mike Furman @ Criswell Chevrolet, we have confirmation that Z06 7-M convertible orders are not only being accepted, but now are significantly moving forward, with status 3000 just around the around. Criswell already has, right now, five customer Z06 orders at status 2500, where GM's defines status 2500 as:

2500 = Order Preferenced (or "Picked Up" or "Imaged"), Sent to Production

This will do several really good things, first and most importantly, obviously, confirm that Z06 convertible orders are proceeding, and now that this "cat is out of the bag," will confirm what I and others all saw in person during last week's public BGAP tours, that there were two Z06 convertibles with the 8-speed auto transmissions going down the assembly line, with these two convertibles intermixed with saleable VIN customer cars (one was right after mine). One could tell that they were automatics, even from 20+ feet away, with their "chassis main line" build tickets having a very large "A" in its top center box -- as opposed to all the rest which had a large "M" in that box. It is highly unlikely that these were GM test cars at this point, and most probably were for Rick Hendrick who bought the rights to GM's first Z06 convertible, and/or for GM's internal collection --- however, no employees were willing to publicly talk.

Additionally, having another batch of Z06 customers (7-M convertible orderers) who have been on dealer's Z06 internal priority lists for months, some over a year, now getting their cars' orders moving forward, will help relieve the stress that even the top 5 dealers have been having in selling 7-M coupes, i.e., now another customer group who will soon be happy.

And, having taking this step, we learned a few weeks ago, though the exact date is yet still unknown, that the biggest Z06 customer group who have been waiting, those 80+ percent of Z06 customers wanting an automatic, the next and last Z06 group will start to be orderable sometime next month (as soon as on December 4th, though most believe not until December 11th); however, we just...

Best Car to Buy according to Kelly Blue Book is the STINGRAY

Nov 17, 2014 - 6:20 PM - by jsvette
CNN ran a short article today citing the Kelly Blue Book of the "12 vehicles [that] provide the best value for your dollar according to the car experts at KBB." The Corvette Stingray was picked as the best sports car because it "offers power and performance as well as value with its good fuel economy and low depreciation."

Corvette Enthusiast's Dream!

OR, Ten Days In Corvette-Heaven!!!

Was asked to write about my ten day adventure in Bowling Green. To summarize, for those who want the punchline first, met and "helped tour" three Florida StingRay friends who had never been to Bowling Green before; got out onto NCM's Motorsports Park track at speed; ate at Rafferty's and many other good BG restaurant; stayed at the home of long term Corvette friends (they have owned 30+); spent hours and hours at the National Corvette Museum; meet with StingRay Forums (SRF) members either getting their StingRay via Museum Delivery, or visited with them at the Bowling Green Assembly Plant (BGAP) while they were doing their Z06 Buyers Tours; saw and reported back as to their Z06's assembly progress for a couple of SRF members who's Z06's were being made (but were unable to do the Tour); spent 12 1/2 hours walking along side my Z06 while it was put together; had dinner with the BGAP Performance Build Center (PBC) Team Leader Barry Dennis; and, took seven (7) BGAP public and private Plant tours in addition.

If that is enough detail for you, please stop here, but if a BG Corvette addict, you may enjoy reading further. Here goes...

Way back around mid July, some of our Florida friends, who coincidentally own '14 Z-51's (SRF members "CyberVette," "LagunaVette" and "Ambrut"), all of whom had never been to Bowling Green before, decided they were going to have a long weekend adventure, to visit "Corvette heaven." A month later, they had made their plans, including buying the BGAP "private tour." They booked their flights, set to arrive in BGAP on November 6th. They told me about their plans, to which I casually and jokingly responded, "wouldn't it be nice if my Z06 were made around then, so when I do my NCM Buyer Tour, we could meet there? LOL." Fat chance of that, as likely as when pigs fly. At this time, still had not ordered my Z, nor had any real idea when I would be going to BG. Later learned that there could be a remote possibility of my being there around their trip, and a month ago that my Z06 build start estimate was November 12th. Annie said to me, "why don't you extend your trip, arrive in time to see them." Yep, you guessed it, for they landed at Nashville, an hour after I did on November 6th, and here is their arrival gate.

1st Z06 Completed: 9:26 AM Today!

Nov 10, 2014 - 9:57 AM - by elegant

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.
