Corvette Of The Day: 2016 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition
The 2016 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition is a road-going, track-capable homage to the Corvette Racing C7.R racecars. Only 500 units of this particular model were manufactured, and is offered in Corvette Racing’s signature yellow livery – or black – with coordinated exterior and interior accents.
Beneath the hood, the Z06 boasts a supercharged 6.2-liter LT4 V8 engine, delivering an impressive 650 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft of torque. Power is transmitted to the rear wheels via an 8-speed automatic transaxle and an electronic limited-slip differential. This configuration enables the Z06 to achieve 0-60 MPH acceleration in a mere 3 seconds. The Z07 Performance Package further enhances the car’s performance, incorporating a specially tuned suspension with Magnetic Selective Ride Control dampers and upgraded Brembo ceramic brakes.
With the 650-horsepower supercharged LT4 engine, genuine aerodynamic downforce, and advanced performance technologies like Magnetic Ride Control, Performance Traction Management, and an electronic limited-slip differential, the Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition delivers a level of capability that rivals only a select few supercars in the world. Its exclusive status as a special-edition model ensures its place as a sought-after collector’s item.
