With the Corvette’s 50th anniversary right around the corner in 2003, GM gave the 2002 Z06 a little tweaking that resulted in horsepower just over the 400 mark. It wasn’t rocket science that delivered the boost either, they just let the LS6 breathe a little freer and gave it a higher lifting camshaft. The rear shocks were slightly modified to improve handling even further. Overall, the Z06 has more performance than the average driver will ever tap. The notchback form is exclusive to the Z06, and while it may hinder those looking to hike their golf bag around, the look sets the Z06 apart. Most Corvette owners aren’t necessarily chasing value but, for the price, there is simply nothing else in the same class as the Corvette Z06.
