BORN ON THE TRACK
Located at the intersection of Le Mans and the autobahn, you’ll find the 2016 Corvette Z06. A true world-class supercar, Z06 was conceived on the track and is engineered with a lightweight and rigid aluminum space frame as well as a supercharged 6.2L aluminum V8 engine delivering 650 horsepower and 881 Nm of torque.
Z06 and the C7.R race car share unprecedented levels of engineering and components, including chassis architecture, engine technologies and aerodynamic strategies. With Stingray as a foundation, the Z06 and C7.R were co-developed to push the envelope of performance beyond expectation.
Z06 is powered by an LT4 supercharged 6.2L aluminum V8 engine delivering 650 horsepower and 881 Nm of torque. With Direct Injection, Active Fuel Management™ and Continuously Variable Valve Timing, Z06 is a powerful, efficient supercar.
An available adjustable transparent wickerbill available with the Z07 Performance Package allows for varying levels of downforce, helping to give Z06 the most aerodynamic downforce of any production car that GM has ever tested.
Z07 Performance Package contributes to 136kg of downforce.
With the turn of a dial, everything changes. Five distinct, selectable driver modes electronically calibrate up to 12 performance variables to customize your Z06 for any road.
Z06 is the first 650 horsepower supercar available in both coupe and convertible as well as automatic or manual transmission. Since Z06 was developed from the start to be an open-top vehicle, coupe and convertible share the same aluminum frame structure, and are designed to reduce drag and keep the vehicle firmly planted to the road.
Virtually every exterior element of Z06 was designed to serve a function, all adding up to improved grip, aerodynamics, air flow and overall track performance.
Wider wheels and tires provide more grip than Stingray
Large vents provide cooling air to the engine, brakes, transmission and differential
The rear has been widened by 80mm and the front by 56mm for aggressive stance and enhanced handling
Standard Michelin® Pilot® Super Sport ZP summer-only tires enhance grip even more
Designed from the start to be an open-top vehicle, no additional reinforcements were required for the Z06 convertible. The fully electronic drop-top can be lowered with the press of a button or remotely using the key fob — even while driving at speeds up to 80km/h. Using this innovative hands-free latching, the top hides beneath a body-colored tonneau cover between the seats.
Z06 features a number of unique color schemes to emphasize the driver-centric cockpit, as well as a unique flat-bottom steering wheel. The standard Grand Touring seat and available Competition Sport seat each feature a lightweight magnesium frame and cradle the driver for optimal comfort and support.
Both seats are available in Grade A Napa leather with 3LZ trim level
Competition Sport seat is built for cornering, with pronounced side bolsters
Available sueded-microfiber inserts add an additional level of refinement
The available Z07 Performance Package takes the Z06 to the next level of design and performance.
With the latest Chevrolet MyLink 8-inch diagonal screen, easy-to-use driver modes and an industry-exclusive Performance Data Recorder, Z06 is a technologically advanced supercar.
Z06 keeps you connected and entertained with a retractable 8-inch diagonal high-definition MyLink color touch-screen. Using steering wheel controls, hand gesture recognition and voice recognition capabilities, you can talk, text and stream music and videos without taking your hands off the wheel.
Premium BOSE® 10-speaker with bass box audio system
Audio input jack and Bluetooth®
Z06 employs a host of safety technologies to help keep you safe before, during and after a possible collision.
Z06 comes with a powerful Xenon high-intensity discharge headlamps to help with visibility by emanating 900 lumens of light. And if Z06 ever loses tire pressure, run-flat tires enable safe functioning at a moderate speed until the tire can be repaired.
In the event of a collision, Z06 is designed to help keep you and your passengers safe with seat-mounted head and thorax air bags and a rigid aluminum frame structure that is stiffer than that found in the previous-generation Corvette models.
Z06 helps to prevent potential danger with features like Active Handling and 4-Wheel Anti-Lock Brakes to keep you in control.
