Much like its predecessors in the fifth– and sixth-generation models, the 2016 Z06 Corvette was the continued embodiment of track-ready, uncompromised high-performance driving and handling. Its return for the 2016 model year would provide consumers with more options to personalize their cars, but it would also finally pay homage to Corvette’s racing heritage with the introduction of a special, C7.R Edition model.
The Chevrolet Corvette’s revered C7 generation marked a significant milestone with the introduction of the first-ever supercharged Z06 model. Setting new standards, this iteration also offered the choice of an automatic transmission and a convertible top for the Z06 variant. Under the hood, the formidable “LT4” 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine roared to life, unleashing an impressive output of 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque.
