While driving to the grocery store today, I noticed a car transporter parked along the road. Of course, I pulled over to get a closer look, and discovered a white Z06, and a yellow Zee. I've heard over and over, that GM was not offering a white C6 Z06, but here's pics of one.

Here's another pic showing the Z06 side scoop....take a close look and you'll notice the roof and side view mirrors are yellow. I don't know why it's painted that way..but it's quite interesting.

looks like blisters on the door.
Ustab: There not blisters...Bowling Green applies plastic film on the doors (and other areas) to protect the paint from scratches. Dealer then removes it during pre-delivery prep.

Wow, cool find man!!

The yellow one is definitely an export version, probably the one we'll soon see spyshots of tearing up the Nurburgring GT2 record..... ;)

At first I thought maybe the white one was an export version too, just with the side turn signal repeater lights not installed..... since we know that GM likes to send white c6's to the 'ring........ But the white one is *NOT* an export version. Look at the rear side marker lights (just behind/above the rear wheels). Euro laws state that those lights have to be orange... on the yellow car, notice that those ARE orange.... whereas on every other us-bound c6 and c6 z06 we've seen, including this new white z06..... they're red.

So...... why did GM build a white z06 if not for nurburgring testing? Hmm.............. maybe it's a surprise...... or maybe it's just another test car they're gonna use for testing at the Lutzigring, aka Milford road course........
