The Z06 shines through with striking looks, exciting sound and palpable interaction, all due to the very high levels of focus it experienced. With sleek new front and rear fascia designs that contribute to a confident stance and unparalleled proportions, as well as a luxuriously appointed interior, the Z06 certainly creates the ultimate super sports car experience.
The Z06 stands out with its beating heart – the all-new naturally aspirated 5.5-liter LT6 V-8 engine with the highest horsepower on the market compared to any other naturally aspirated car.
An all-new flat design encourages drivers to depress the accelerator pedal even more to see the tachymeter scale up to 8,600 rpm, while delivering a whopping 670 horsepower. The engineers spent two years creating a distinctive, roaring exhaust note that had never been heard from a Corvette.
The Z06’s performance is built on the foundations of the Stingray, as is its design language and meticulous detail. An expanded choice of available premium materials, new interior packages and the unique characteristics of the Z06 enable customers to create their own customized American sports car.
Each unique exterior detail in the Z06 can be considered to serve a specific purpose in the field of aerodynamics, handling or cooling, with design touches that enhance the sense of movement and power that it gives the car.
For wider wheels and tires, there are 20 x 10 inch (50.8 x 25.4 cm) front wheels with 275/30ZR20 tires, and 21 x 13 inch (53.3 x 33 cm) rear wheels with 345/25ZR21 tires. Michelin® Pilot Sport 4S ZP tires are standard equipment from Michelin, and Sport Cup 2 R ZP tires are also available with the optional Z07 package.
Premium materials in the driver-centric cockpit continue to elevate the premium look and feel introduced with the Stingray. This is complemented by an optional carbon-fibre trim package that expresses the track-centric lightweight philosophy.
Unique features include an optional carbon fiber-wrapped steering wheel and paddle shifters, and a new Level 2 carbon fiber interior package. The Z06 also features hand-wrapped leather interior options, including the optional all-new leather interior in Adrenaline Red.
