In any case, 53 miles represents a 35 percent bump in EV range compared with the first-gen Volt.

From the outside, this Z06 is about as wild as they come. Screaming yellow paint, black wheels and stripes, the back end looks like a KISS mask to me. I love the wickerbill spoiler. It looks like a race car.
