C6 Corvette Z06 vs. C7 Corvette: Can Old School Kill Stingray Cool?

Explosive acceleration and grin-inducing handling are features of the C6 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. 

It could struggle to compete with its base-model replacement, however.

The sixth-generation Chevrolet Corvette Z06 was one of the lineup's most brutally ballistic vehicles. 

It didn't get much better for the 'Vette until the seventh-generation model arrived, with the exception of the limited edition ZR1. 

The C7 Corvette, in contrast, introduced new technology, refinement, and elegance over the earlier "Plastic Fantastic."
