What happens when you race this mid-engine masterpiece? You win. The C8.R race car did just that, bringing home back-to-back IMSA GTLM manufacturer championships. And now, that same engine comes to the streets with the all-new Corvette Z06. It’s purpose-built to dominate the track and boasts the most powerful naturally aspirated V8 in production, pumping out even more horsepower than the race car.
A testament to unrelenting craftsmanship, the hand-built LT6 5.5L engine features an all-new flat-plane crankshaft that gives it a signature growl. Strike fear in your competition as it hits a redline of 8600 rpm – 2000 rpm higher than Stingray. And with a balanced mid-engine design, more of its impressive power is directed to the rear wheels where it matters most.
A car this capable requires some serious braking ability, and its standard 6-piston front/4-piston rear brakes are designed to give you just that. Available 4-wheel antilock, 4-wheel disc carbon ceramic brakes provide state-of-the-art braking performance for track demands.
The striking exterior of Z06 is as commanding as it is functional. The standard ground effects and spoiler optimize aerodynamic drag and powertrain cooling efficiency. Replaceable spoiler wickerbills, rear brake cooling ducts, removable front fascia panel and front underwing stall Gurneys increase downforce, keeping Z06 poised and planted as you round the track.
After the win comes the wind. The retractable hardtop roof flows seamlessly into the body design, so performance stays high when the top comes down.
This standard advanced damping system reads the road every millisecond and adapts in as little as 10–15 milliseconds, giving you the confidence and control to push harder while staying planted to the asphalt.
