Click above for high-res gallery of the Corvette Z06 in Europe

How do you follow up filming the ultra rare Lamborghini LP 640 and Wiesmann GT? If you're Supercarmovies.com, you pay homage to the best supercar value this side of the Atlantic: the Corvette Z06. Our pals over at Supercarmovies.com continue to amaze (and embarrass) us by making auto-centric cinematic masterpieces with production values that put everything else on the internet to shame. What we're trying to say is that these aren't your brother's YouTube vids.

Available to view in standard def or High Definition, the newest video lacks a plot like the memorable LP 640 film, but stars the Z06 tackling twisty roads somewhere in Europe. With that raucous V8 bouncing off the Old World's topography like a little kid in a library, you half expect the American icon to punt a MINI Cooper right off the mountain. But this is a movie, and the Z06 has no other traffic with which to contend, so it accelerates and brakes at leisure just like any American would on vacation. Click the gallery below courtesy of Supercarmovies.com for some excellent eye candy and hit the Source link to view the film itself.

      Computer nerds are amazing...

      Oh my goodness. These guys are good.

      I have not had time to check out the video, but the photos are absolutely stunning.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Well, most professional photos go through some editing process. In any case, you don't need photoshop to make this car look good.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Yeah, it's amazing what Photoshop can do to your photos.

        Could have at least taken that pimple of a front plate off for ALL the photos.

      Ferrari the original rich mans “Look at how cool I am” car. Looks fast and shiny but for its level of performance its massively overpriced. The interiors were always very nice but the car is still unacceptable for the price you pay for such performance. This car was never truly built for pure power and performance, mostly “class” or luxury.

      However when it comes to the Ferrari community they are really a divided bunch. You have the respectable Ferrari drivers who appreciate and respect other cars and don't have the typical more expensive equals better car mentality. Then you have the elitist, over the top richards who hold on to the Ferrari likes its the second coming because it's overpriced and has a neat little “my little pony” badge on the side that makes the owner better then everyone else. For them it's more like a flag. They go around saying "My Ferrari car is shinier and automatically better than any other car form any other manufacturer!" The sheer arrogance of these "richards" is embodied by ferrari fanboys. It's quite funny.

      I do not endorse the above statement or claim that its even a particularly well written hack job of johns trolling.

      This shots/vid must have been taken in Southtyrol/Italy close to the Austrian border. Great place; I've been born quite near there actually ^^

      I haven't seen the supercarmovies.com videos before.. Impressive stuff to say the least!

      Also, Dolemite, interesting avatar choice. :)

      wooo! car pwrn. mega hot. i just got me an 08 Z06! ..i think i'm going to strap a camera to the dash and maybe get the same results.

      Also, I don't know if it was intentional or not (given the cupholder humor context), the car (and editing) looks a bit slow pace compared to the other videos they've done. No drift around the hairpins, looked like grandpah on a leisurely Sunday dive... with his favorite can of soda (x3).

      The original poor mans supercar. Looks uninspired and cheap but it has a beast of an engine which provides amazing performance. The interiors were always cheap and hideous but still acceptable for the price you pay for such performance. This car was never built for class or luxury, just power.

      However when it comes to the Corvette community they are really a divided bunch. You have the respectable corvette drivers who appreciate and respect other cars and don't have the typical more power equals better car mentality. Then you have the rednecks, over patriotic Americans who hold on to the Vette likes its the second coming because it's one of the few, if not the only performance cars we can hold to other cars from the Europeans. For them it's more like a flag.. They go around saying "My American car is faster and automatically than any other car form any other country!" The sheer brashness and "American ignorance" is embodied by corvette fanboys. It's quite funny.

        Yea John....you really are a stupid man. Saying that car looks uninspiring and has no class tells us all we need to know about you.

        Poor man's supercar??? Please analyze that statement....you write it like its a bad thing.

        Boasting about the Z06 the way you describe above is justified...because less than a handful of cars perform better than it. I don't recall any Vette fans proclaiming that the 1982 Vette was a world beater.

        When it comes to the Z06 though, the so called Vette fanboys can get right in your face and talk all the smack they want about it and you have no option other than to agree with them.

        You forgot to mention one more type of Vette fanboy.....and that is the one who lives in your head and drive you nuts. Cudos to that type! When the ZR-1 hits the street, it won't be your head they live in either.

        John, when I think of American retards, I think of people like you.

        Oh, we're being "honest here." Whew!

        You said that, "In comparison to the majority of European performance/luxury cars the Vette is downright UGLY and cheap looking." Well, that's your opinion, and everyone has their opinion. You made a valid point about Vette fanboys, but in my opinion, you're the reverse. You think the Z06 is "ugly" and "cheap looking," but others disagree, and yes, it's a matter of opinion. More to the point, the silly "let's be honest here" is a cheap rhetorical trick. You know it, I know it, and probably most people here know it.
        • 6 Years Ago
        LOL. I hit a nerve huh? The vette fanboys have come out the woodworks. I see Dolemite represents the typical Vette fanboy who uses laughable insults in the place of a proper argument.

        As for Chris, you basically admitted your a fanboy yourself. I mean you actually defend the immature and vile Vette fanboyism.

        Michael well first off I'm not an European fanboy. I like a lot of American cars, but let's be honest here. In comparison to the majority of European performance/luxury cars the Vette is downright UGLY and cheap looking.

        The car's handling is decent but nothing to write home about. Anyways if any of you are vette owners I apologize for coming down on your car. It is a great performer and I never once said it wasn't. My post was directed at the idiotic vette fanboys.

      Neff, your praise of Supercarmovies.com is well-deserved as their cinematography is outstanding - dramatic and well-paced. Even the accompanying score is well-suited to the visuals and doesn't detract from the Z06 intake/exhaust sounds in the film.

      I can't help but wonder if only there had been a few major explosions and possibly a car chase if this would have come off as a Jerry Bruckheimer production?
      • 6 Years Ago
      That is absolutely beautiful. Uninspired Design? What is that guy up above thinking? Corvettes have always looked better than they ran, now they run as good as they look.

      Woooohoooooo!!!

      Oh, and the pics are stunning. Great stuff.
