2019 Z06 Corvette

WOW!!!! The only way to describe this car is “Supercar”.  I’ve referred before to the fact that Chevrolet has made continuous improvements to the Corvette over the years.  This time, they nailed it.  This car does everything perfectly.

I really liked the looks of the 2019 Z06, so when I ordered it, I was really looking forward to it.  I picked it up from the dealer in Detroit and drove it about 200 miles home.  The next day, I put another 300 miles on it.  I was amazed at just how well this car does everything.  From the moment I start it, it’s just exciting.  Great exhaust sound, great ride, unbelievable acceleration, smooth shifting and an all around amazing car.

With the 8-speed automatic transmission, it’s just as smooth as butter accelerating.  It took me a while to realize it, but if you tune out the sound of the motor and exhaust, you can hardly feel the car shift.  Get into the throttle, and it’s smooth as silk.  Everything this car does is effortless.

I have been looking at the new C-8 Vettes, and so far I’m not a big fan.  Maybe it wil grow on me, but for now I just love the looks of this car.

I drove this car back to Arizona from Michigan.  As I usually do, I tried to stay off the expressways and use nice 2-lane roads wherever possible.  This is usually a lot of fun going through Texas, New Mexico and Arizona.

Once again, I found a nice deserted straight road while I was going through New Mexico.  The car has a Performance Data Recorder which includes forward looking video, so I decided to check it out.  The road was a little rougher than I was comfortable with, so I didn’t take it as fast as I would have liked, but check out this video.
