Chevrolet has just announced that its 2007 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 muscle car will come to the market at a significantly higher starting price. The problem is: for a 10 percent bump in price, the American car manufacturing brand offers you very little in return. Perhaps, some person in Detroit has decided that the marque is legendary enough to charge an extra premium just for the loud name.
While the yesteryear 505 horsepower Chevrolet Z06 started at only $65,690, the next iteration of the vehicle will sell for $70,000.
And for these $4,310 extra dollars you will get nothing. Absolutely nothing new.
Well, maybe not ‘absolutely’, since Chevrolet promises to add to the package larger glove compartment and offer the Corvette Z06 in a new Atomic Orange Metallic Tintcoat color which is definitely to be highly appreciated by Duke Nukem fans.
The options list now also includes an OnStar tracking service subscription, as well as an enhanced acoustic package.
This seems to be all.
