Review Comments:

Road and Track, Feb., 2012:  "In the Corvette lineup, the Z06 is the track rat. It lacks the ZR1's power overkill but has the same suspension that's honed to a razor's edge and aided by a menu of electronic stability programs to match your talent and self-preservation instinct. Add in the ceramic brakes and the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup quasi-slicks— the fronts being nearly the size of the (Porsche) Carrera's rears— and you've got a car that excels in three key areas: entry, apex, and exit."
