Cut from the same carbon-fiber cloth

Z06 and the C7.R race car were developed in tandem and share many features and components, including chassis architecture, engine technologies and aerodynamic strategies. With Stingray as a foundation, the Z06 and C7.R were codeveloped to push the envelope of performance beyond expectation.

2017 Corvette Z06: performance driver mode dial

A mode for every road

With the turn of a dial, everything changes. Five distinct, selectable driver modes electronically calibrate up to 12 performance variables to customize your Z06 for any road.

Performance Data Recorder

2017 Corvette Z06 Performance Data Recorder

The available Performance Data Recorder logs video of your drives 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 captures video and data for additional peace of mind.  

Defined by precision

Z06 is the first 650-horsepower supercar available in both coupe and convertible, as well as in 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 planted firmly to the road.  

2017 Corvette Z06 Design: front

Engineering in design

The track-inspired Z06 features a precision-sculpted exterior design that’s as functional as it is beautiful, for improved grip, aerodynamics and better 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 from Stingray for aggressive stance and enhanced handling

Safety

2017 Corvette Z06 Super Car Safety: frame

PREVENT

Corvette helps to prevent potential danger with features like Active Handling, four-wheel antilock brakes and Traction Control. Standard Xenon high-intensity discharge headlamps emanate 900 lumens of light. And if tire pressure is ever lost, run-flat tires enable safe functioning at a moderate speed until the tire can be repaired.

PROTECT

In the event of a collision, Corvette is designed to help keep you and your passengers safe with seat-mounted head and thorax air bags and a rigid aluminum frame structure that is lighter and stiffer than that found in previous-generation Corvette models.

RESPOND

You’re never alone with OnStar® Automatic Crash Response. Built-in sensors
can automatically alert an OnStar Advisor, who is immediately connected into your vehicle and can request emergency help be sent to your exact GPS location – even if you’re unable to respond. OnStar Guidance Plan standard for the first six months
