2017 Chevrolet Corvette Z06
A Driver's Car With No Equal
Z06 is a true world-class supercar. Conceived on the track and engineered alongside the C7.R race car, Z06 features a lightweight and rigid aluminum space frame, as well as a supercharged 6.2L aluminum V8 engine delivering 650 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque.
Cut From the Same Carbon-Fiber Cloth
Z06 and the C7.R race car were developed in tandem and share many features 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.
A Supercharged Supercar
Z06 is powered by an LT4 supercharged 6.2L aluminum V8 engine delivering 650 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque. With a choice of transmissions as well as Direct Injection, Active Fuel ManagementTM and Continuously Variable Valve Timing, Z06 brilliantly combines extreme power with efficiency.
Defined by Precision
Z06 is the first 650-horsepower supercar available in both coupe and convertible, as well as in 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.
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 by using the key fob ‐ even while driving at speeds up to 31 mph. Using this innovative hands-free latching, the top hides beneath a body-colored tonneau cover behind the seats.
Technology and Stuff
With available 4G LTE Wi-Fi® connectivity, the latest Chevrolet MyLink 8-inch diagonal color touch screen, easy-to-use driver modes and an industry-exclusive Performance Data Recorder, Z06 is a technologically advanced supercar.
Reconfigurable Instrument Cluster
The 8-inch diagonal LCD display features three customizable themes with varying levels of information, from G-force to temperature and more.
Z06 helps to prevent potential danger with features like Active Handling and 4-wheel antilock brakes to keep you in control, while standard Xenon high-intensity discharge headlamps help 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.
You're never alone with OnStar® Automatic Crash Response. Built-in sensors can automatically alert an OnStar Advisor, who is immediately connected into your vehicle and can request that emergency help be sent to your exact GPS location ‐ even if you're unable to respond. Standard for the first six months.
This available Display projects data near your line of sight on the windshield, helping you stay informed while you focus on the road ahead.
Z06 employs a host of safety technologies to help keep you safe before, during and after a possible collision.
