Corvette Z06

Corvette Z06

The Corvette Z06 arrived as a 2006 model in the third quarter of 2005. It has a 7.0 L (7,008 cc/427.6 in³) version of the Small-Block engine codenamed LS7.

The Z06 achieves 16/26 mpg (city/highway), and the output is 505 hp (376 kW).

Dave Hill, the chief engineer for the C6 Corvette, says that it is a much further departure from the standard Corvettes, and more like the C6-R that GM is building for the American Le Mans Series.

In the summer of 2005, GM and Corvette Racing driver Jan Magnussen brought the new Z06 to the Nürburgring in Germany. Magnussen drove the Z06 to a time of 7:42.99. Car and Driver recorded a 0-60 mph time of 3.6 seconds in their March 2007 comparison test. In addition to the larger engine, the Corvette Z06 has a dry sump oiling system, and Connecting rods made out of titanium alloy.

The primary structural element of the sixth-generation Z06 is aluminum instead of steel as on the non-Z06 cars. The hydroformed aluminum frame remains dimensionally identical to its steel brethren but are significantly lighter. The front fenders are made of carbon fiber to reduce weight, while wider rear fenders allow for the wider tires necessary to deal with the engine's increased power. The Z06 officially weighs 3132 lb (1421 kg), giving it a weight to power ratio of 6.2 lb/hp (3.8 kg/kW
