2016 Chevrolet Corvette Z06
2016 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 in Royal Oak, MI
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.
- Wider wheels and tires provide more grip than Stingray
- Large vents provide cooling air to the engine, brakes, transmission and differential
- The rear has been widened by 80 mm and the front by 56 mm for aggressive stance and enhanced handling
- Standard MichelinÂ® PilotÂ® Super Sport ZP summer-only tiresâ€ enhance grip even more
Z06 features a number of unique color schemes to emphasize the driver-centric cockpit, as well as a unique flat-bottom steering wheel. The standard Grand Touring seat and available Competition Sport seat each feature a lightweight magnesium frame and cradle the driver for optimal comfort and support.
- Competition Sport seat is built for cornering, with pronounced side bolsters
- Available sueded-microfiber inserts add an additional level of refinement
- GT seats available in Napa leather with 3LZ trim level
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 Managementâ„¢ and Continuously Variable Valve Timing, Z06 is a powerful, efficient sports car.
Z06 offers the choice of a 7-speed manual or an available 8-speed paddle-shift automatic. The standard 7-speed with Active Rev Matching enhances the driving experience by simulating heel-toe shifting perfection. The available 8-speed paddle-shift offers the smooth control of an automatic but with quick, precise shifts and manual mode for track driving.
Z06 keeps you connected and entertained with a retractable 8-inch diagonal high-definition MyLinkâ€ color touch-screen. Using steering wheel controls, hand gesture recognition and voice recognition capabilities, you can talk, text and stream music without taking your hands off the wheel.
- Premium Bose audio system with SiriusXMâ€ Satellite Radio with 3 months of service
- Audio input jack and Bluetoothâ€ 3.0 wireless technology for easy streaming
Apple CarPlayâ€ takes the iPhone features that are useful to use while driving and puts them on the vehicle’s display in a clean, simple way. This allows you to make calls, send and receive messages and listen to music right from your touch-screen or by voice using Siri. Apple CarPlay supported apps include Phone, Messages, Maps, Music and compatible third-party apps.
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 bagsâ€ and a rigid aluminum frame structure that is stiffer than that found in the previous-generation Corvette models.
