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 650 lb.-ft. of torque.
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 Management™ and Continuously Variable Valve Timing, Z06 is a powerful, efficient sports car.
Designed to dominate
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.
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 30 mph. Using this innovative hands-free latching, the top hides beneath a body-colored tonneau cover behind the seats.
