Whatever you may say, the Corvette is still the epitome of American Muscle all across the world. With its seventh generation, the Corvette C7, the American carmaker produced yet another striking high-performance machine that can battle it out with the best high-performance sports cars out there. This is especially true with the Corvette C7 Z06, an even more performance oriented model that’s fine-tuned for the racetrack. The C7 Z06 is powered by a supercharged aluminum 6.2 liter V8 engine, delivering 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft. of torque. The engine is mated to an eight-speed paddle shift automatic transmission. In turn, the vehicle is able to accelerate from 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in just 2.95 seconds.
However, for our friends at Speed Society, even that wasn’t enough.
Their view of a Corvette C7 Z06 differs a bit from what the manufacturer envisioned in the first place. Their vision includes several performance, visual and safety upgrades, making the already impressive Z06 a vehicle not to be trifled with. This Corvette Racing Yellow Z06 churns out a whopping 850 horsepower and 880lb-ft of torque. It looks more aggressive as well. It will handle corners like a champ, while shooting out of them with raging fury, all the while looking good parked on any Starbucks parking lot out there.

Naturally, what kind of an aftermarket build this would be if it weren’t finished off with a set of custom-made aftermarket wheels. For this Corvette Z06, Speed Society chose a set of ADV5.0 M.V2 CS Series two-piece forged wheels. These wheels offer the best of both worlds, allowing that highly-coveted monoblock look for the wheel face while allowing for the modularity & fitment options of a true three-piece wheel design. The resulting wheel is lightweight, offers a great visual upgrade for the vehicle, while also, provides the utmost perfect fitment. For this build, these wheels are machined in sizes of 19×10.5 and 20×12 in the front and rear, respectively. The wheels are adorned with a Matte Black finish and a Hidden Titanium Hardware option, giving them a clean look. Furthermore, the OEM Colormatched ADV.1 center cap logo and etched lettering, complete the detailed look.
Finally, the wheels are wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, allowing the Corvette to slice up those tight corners & allow for improved grip in high-performance driving situations.
