Background, features, prices, and specifications for the Chevrolet Z06 coupe.
The Chevrolet Division of General Motors has been an American sales leader since 1936 and specializes in powerful trucks, SUVs, and sports cars, backing up all vehicles for 3 years or 36,000 miles. Chevrolet's prized Corvette was first produced in 1953, and is built today exclusively at the General Motors assembly plant located in Bowling Green, Kentucky. The Corvette was the first all-American sports car, and is widely regarded as the 'poor man's super car,' en.wikipedia.org. Named after the maneuverable and speedy warship, the Corvette emphasizes simplicity and power in its engine design and styling. After a year's hiatus, the Z06 nameplate returns to the Corvette lineup with a 505-horsepower V-8 engine and a whole new look.
Chevy calls the Z06 'the most aerodynamically efficient Corvette ever,' and boasts that it will accelerate from 0-60mph in less than 4 seconds, reaching a top speed of 190 mph. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a new, stouter six-speed manual transmission, stronger brakes and a stiffer suspension than the 2005 Corvette. The Z06's style has the edgy ferocity of a Ferrari, and exterior changes include flared fenders, additional cooling vents, a fixed roof, and lighter-weight aluminum and carbon fiber components.
The Chevrolet Corvette Z06 starts at $65,000.
