America – land of the free and home of the 1,320. We like our meal portions big and our quarter mile ETs low. And when it comes to engines, we want eight cylinders arranged in a vee, with a big-ass blower sitting on top creating all those whining noises.

These are just a few of the things that make the new C7 Corvette Z06 so awesome. Click the link to read our full review. The car is like a Patriot missile with Johnny Cash riding shotgun – brutal, ruthlessly effective, and undeniably cool in a does-it-look-like-I-care kind of way.

Once this thing gets off the line, it simply squats and rockets down the lane.
