All-New Chevrolet Z06 – The most epic Corvette yet

Corvette has been the hallmark of performance in General Motors ever since its maiden debut back in 1953. The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is beautiful, breath taking and delivers great performance. However, when it comes to ultimate performance there is no other Corvette that can deliver better than the all-new Z06. The latest version of the Z06 is the most dramatic performing Chevrolet Corvette in the company’s history. Chevrolet has not only focused on the power from the engine but has also fine tuned the aerodynamic capabilities of the two door coupe. 

All-New Chevrolet Corvette Z06

Exterior add-ons
The overall design of the car is inspired by the standard Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. However, the addition of numerous tweaks and added extras enhance the look of the car and also increase the car’s overall capability. To deliver the levels of grip needed for the all-new Z06’s performance targets, the car is fitted with larger Michelin tires. The P285/30ZR19 front tyres are 1.5 inches wider than the tyres on the Stingray, while the 335/25ZR20 rear tyres are two inches wider.

Wider rear lights

To cover the wider tire tread, the fenders of the all-new Z06 were extended by 2.2 inches at the front, and 3.15 inches at the rear. These extensions give the all-new Chevrolet Corvette Z06 a wider, lower appearance further emphasized by a unique rear fascia. The rear also incorporates the same lamp assemblies visible on the Stingray, but are pushed approximately three inches farther apart, toward to edges of the body. 


Large bonnet opening

The tyres are mounted on lightweight, spin-cast aluminium wheels, which are also wider than the Stingray. Their open, ultra light design showcases the massive Brembo brakes, which are part of the design aesthetic.

Wider than the standard Corvette Stingray

To harness the cornering and braking grip afforded by the larger tyres and brakes, the exterior of the all-new Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is tailored to produce aerodynamic down force that presses the tyres to the ground at high speeds. The unique front grille features dedicated brake-cooling intakes and wider grille outlets on the bottom serve as air diffusers. The grille is complemented with a larger bonnet opening, which vents hot air from the engine compartment. The large vent also contributes to down force by allowing air driven through the grille to exit through the bonnet rather than being forced under the car.


All-new 8-speed transmission

Epic performance
The heart of the all-new Corvette Z06 is the all-new LT4 6.2L supercharged V-8 engine, which delivers an impressive 466 kW (625 hp) and 861 Nm. The supercharged LT4 is offered with a standard seven-speed manual transmission, or an all-new eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission designed to enhance both performance and efficiency.

Larger tyres for more grip

Sporty interior
Inside, the all-new Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is distinguished from the Stingray by unique colour schemes that emphasize the driver-focused cockpit, and a unique, flat-bottomed steering wheel. Like the Stingray, the all-new Z06 is offered with two seating choices: a GT seat, for all-around comfort, and a Competition Sport seat with more aggressive side bolstering. This particular seat provides greater support on the track. The frame structure for both seats is made of magnesium, for greater strength and less weight than comparable steel frames. They’re also more rigid, contributing to the enhanced feeling of support during performance driving.


The all-new Chevrolet Corvette Z06 also benefits from interior details designed for high-performance driving, first introduced on the Stingray, including a steel-reinforced grab bar on the centre console for the passenger and soft-touch materials on the edge of the console, where the driver naturally braces during high-load cornering. The performance-supporting elements inside the all-new Chevrolet Corvette Z06 are complemented by unprecedented attention to detail and build quality. All models feature a fully wrapped interior, where every surface is covered with premium, soft-touch materials. 

Tweaked rear for added aerodynamics

The all-new Z06 delivers unprecedented performance that is unseen on past Chevrolet Corvette models. With impressive power, dynamic handling and aggressive styling, the two door sports car lets the whole world know that its build for one purpose; delivering outright speed.
