REPLY: Oh man...this is aweful ; is the car okay ?!
Probably not from the looks of it.
This 1st model year 2006 Corvette Z06 like the 2001 1st model yr Z06
might have some problems.
Alot of the car mags have reported that the suspension, etc have a

to the driver very well.
Even with Active Handling, etc this might be one dangerous vehicle

car hits a bump while cornering that the ass end will come around in a
I'd imagine any car with 500 HP in the hands of a non-pro would be a handful
near the limit. As for the bump issue, that's why I always turn off the ASR
in my car. I hit any bump in a corner at speed and the slip-reduction kicks
in, which I find it really annoying. YMMV.
