First Drive: 2006 Chevrolet Corvette Z06

When is comes to American sports cars, the Corvette is the ultimate icon. The latest C6 Corvette is easily the best ever, with a rare combination of style and relatively affordable performance. Even though the standard C6 nearly matches the C5 Z06 in power, for some Chevy enthusiasts, even 400-bhp isn't enough. For these power junkies, Chevrolet re-introduces the Corvette Z06, with a 505-bhp all-aluminum V-8.
