If you're about to rent this car, congratulations =) you are about to embark on a journey unrivaled by anything you've ever experienced before. Be warned, this car is an absolute MONSTER:
- 650 HP (Horsepower) SUPERCHARGED LT4 6.2L V8 engine
- RWD (Rear-Wheel Drive); 8-Speed Automatic with Manual Paddle Shifters option
- Torque: 650 Lb-Ft. (Torque RPM: 3,600)
Its Competitors are Few
Z06 is singular in its focus of challenging the greatest supercars in the world. Developed in tandem with the C7.R race car and offering 650 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque, the Z06 is the supercar they never saw coming.
To win on the track, you need power. A lot of it. Z06 features a supercharged 6.2L V8 capable of a staggering 650-horsepower. It can rocket to 60 mph in fewer than three seconds. With a dry-sump oil system, Direct Injection and Continuously Variable Valve Timing, this supercharged powerhouse is engineered for extreme speed and acceleration.
Z06 and the C7.R race car were codeveloped and share many features and components. With Stingray as their foundation, Z06 and C7.R were engineered to dominate the racing competition. Some of the shared components:
- Carbon-fiber removable hard-top roof and hood
- Dry-sump oil system
- Titanium intake valves
- Composite floor panels
- Hydroformed aluminum frame
It comes with Magnetic Selective Ride Control™ system, a real-time damping system that reads the road every millisecond and can adjust in under 15 milliseconds. An innovative suspension fluid contains metal particles that align and become rigid in an instant, giving you the control to push harder while staying planted. Rear spoiler provides downforce to help keep Z06 planted to the track.
Its flowing lines and integrated aerodynamics draw you in before the exhaust note from its 650 horsepower engine blows you away -- and believe me, you will be BLOWN away by how she ROARS, turning into what sounds like a rocket ship with the slightest tap of the throttle. And because Z06 was designed from the beginning to be open-top, performance stays high when the top goes down.
The car features a driver-oriented cockpit, with a flowing design made from premium materials. Intuitive instruments help you stay focused on the drive, while available heated and ventilated front seats and dual climate control make for a refined drive.
The 8-inch diagonal LCD display features three customizable themes with varying levels of information, including g force, tire temperature and more. There's an on-windshield display which offers three different views and projects data near your line of sight onto the windshield, helping you stay informed while you focus on the road ahead.
With the turn of a Driver Mode Selector dial located in the center console, everything changes. Five distinct, selectable driver modes electronically calibrate up to 12 performance variables to customize your Z06 for any road, and allows drives to tailor virtually every aspect of the Corvette based on road conditions and your driving preferences. Modes include Weather, Eco, Tour, Sport and Track, which adjusts steering and Magnetic Ride Control for race settings, optimizing everything from steering to throttle control for peak performance in every environment.
And, you can connect to more than just the road... you get the entertainment that you love and the information you want with available built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi. And with a Chevrolet MyLink touch-screen display, you can send and receive texts, play music and more.
Music has never sounded so good than with the premium Bose audio system, SiriusXM Satellite Radio, and a center screen that drops down to reveal a storage area with USB port Audio input jack and Bluetooth® 3.0 wireless technology for easy streaming.
Finally, this vehicle is incredibly safe. With technologies like Active Handling, Traction Control, standard Bi-Xenon headlamps, and 4-wheel antilock brakes, the Corvette Z06 is designed to help you stay safe through performance. And should a collision occur, a light aluminum space frame provides added stiffness, while OnStar Automatic Crash Response sends help.
All in all, get ready for one of the absolute most thrilling and surreal driving experiences you'll have all Summer! Also, pictures do NOT do this car any justice.
