Video: Ear-Porn – Matt Farah Tracks An Angry-Sounding ’16 Z06

The C7 Z06 has been around since January of 2015 – just over a year and a half now – and yet it still never ceases to amaze and impress us. Both the machine and its fans have become quite accustomed to its position as one of the most (if not, the most) elite domestic sports cars on the road today, but by no means has its wow-factor faded.

Naturally, then, when we came across this One Take from Matt Farah’s YouTube channel, TheSmokingTire, we plugged in our headphones and basked in the 14 minutes of Corvette-glory without a second thought.C7ZThe Corvette in question here is a 2016 Z06 model, sans Z07 package (withholding the carbon-ceramic brakes, upgraded tires, and more aggressive aero). However, this ‘Vette is equipped with DSC Sport’s V2 Controller, which works with the factory magnetic-ride suspension to create a more adaptive driving experience.

But while the DSC suspension controller is a piece of unquestionably wicked hardware, our butts aren’t the ones in the driver’s seat. Unfortunately, that means that we can only appreciate the technology so much, without actually feeling it firsthand.ControllerSo if we’re being honest with ourselves, there’s really only one thing commanding our attention throughout the video: the show-stopping snarl of that supercharged LT4. Despite Farah’s relatively conservative driving (which he expressed and justified multiple times), the concert of the Corvette’s singing V8, undertones of the supercharger twirling away, and the sharp retort of the exhaust as he rows through gears is enough to get our adrenaline flowing from behind our keyboards.

Even after more than a year and a half of gawking, we’re still every bit as blown away by the Z06 now as we were when we first met it. Sometimes, all it takes is a short video of it catapulting down a road-course for us to fall in love all over again.Z06
