PERFORMANCE DATA RECORDER

The available Performance Data Recorder logs video of your driving sessions, along with real-time performance data, onto an SD memory card so you can analyze your technique and improve your driving abilities. And when someone else is driving the car, Valet Mode can capture video and data for additional peace of mind.

Art in engineering  

Its flowing lines and integrated aerodynamics draw you in before the exhaust note from its 650 horsepower engine blows you away. And because Z06 was designed from the beginning to be open-top, performance stays high when the top goes down.

  • Convertible models feature fully electronic convertible top that can be lowered remotely at speeds of up to 30 mph
  • Wide fenders accommodate massive wheels and tires for a confident, aggressive stance
  • Lightweight architecture and carbon-fiber components contribute to overall aerodynamics
  • Rear spoiler provides downforce to help keep Z06 planted to the track
