Corvettes for Sale: 3K-Mile 2008 Corvette Z06 in Atomic Orange at BaT
A very low-mileage example of the 2008 Corvette Z06 in its rarest color is currently being offered on Bring a Trailer.
So far, the high bid for this Atomic Orange Z06 with just 3,000 miles has climbed to $36,000, with five more days left in the auction.
Only 516 of the 7,731 Z06s made that year left the Bowling Green factory in that color, and this one is an absolute beauty with its complementary Ebony and Cashmere leather interior.
Needless to say, with such low mileage, this car remains in like-new condition inside and out, with the seller taking a step further to keep the exterior looking showroom new by applying paint protection film over the entire front end.
This Corvette, of course, features the LS7 7.0-liter V8 engine that produces 505 horsepower (possibly more since a K&N cold-air intake has been added to this one) and is hooked to a six-speed manual transmission.
The small block-based LS7 has the same 427 cubic-inch displacement as the “big block” 1966-69 Corvettes and was assembled by hand at GM’s Performance Build Center in Wixom, Michigan and features 4.125-inch cylinder bores in an aluminum block with pressed-in cylinder liners, titanium connecting rods and intake valves, an 8-quart dry-sump oiling system, 11:1 compression, 7,000-RPM redline, and 0 to 60 times of 3.7 seconds.
A potential buyer would be wise to remember that a small number of 2008-11 Z06s have a defect in the valvetrain, but unfortunately it’s impossible to know exactly which cars are affected. Since a new LS7 crate engine will set you back more than $16,000 – not counting labor, that’s something to think about.
This car is nicely equipped with the top-of-the-line 3LZ equipment package that added $6,545 to the $71,000 base MSRP and includes leather-wrapped interior trim, heated seats, power adjustable steering column, and side airbags.
Originally purchased in Texas, this Z06 has been driven 3,000 miles since new – with 450 of them coming after the seller’s purchase in July 2022.
