Chevrolet introduced the Corvette Z06 (C6 generation) at the
North American International Auto Show. At the time of its introduction
it was the fastest, most powerful car ever offered by Chevrolet
and General Motors. It was also one of the greatest performance
bargains on the market.
With 500 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque, The ZO6 is the
most powerful passenger car engine ever produced by Chevrolet
and GM. The LS7 is easily identified under the hood by red engine
covers with black lettering.
The Corvette Z06s powertrain and drivetrain systems are
matched to the LS7s performance capability. The light,
four-into-one headers discharge in to new, close-coupled catalytic converters and through to new bi-modal mufflers.
The mufflers each feature a vacuum-actuated outlet valve, which
controls exhaust noise during low-load operation but opens for
of the Corvette Z06s exterior were shaped by the experiences
of the Corvette racing program, where high-speed stability and
cornering capability are paramount. And while the racecars use
large rear wings, the Z06s elevated spoiler provides sufficient
downforce to balance
the road-worthy front splitter without adversely affecting aerodynamic
drag. The Z06s Cd is 0.31.
For all its race-inspired functionality, the Corvette Z06 is
designed to be a daily drivable high-performance vehicle. To
that end, comfort and convenience are held to a very high standard.
HID lighting, fog lamps, leather seating, dual-zone air conditioning,
cabin air filtration and Head-Up Display (HUD) with track mode
and g-meter are standard.
