Chevrolet Corvette Z06X Track Car Concept

From Chevrolet Press: Chevrolet teamed with Pratt and Miller, partners in Corvette Racing in the American LeMans Series, to create the 2011 Chevrolet Corvette Z06X track car concept. The Z06X concept is based on the Corvette Z06 with the 1LZ equipment package, along with the Z07 Performance Package and CFZ Carbon Fiber Package. The 2011 Z06 with the Z07 package creates the lightest production Corvette and includes carbon ceramic brakes and Magnetic Ride Control, while the CFZ package offers body components that enhance aerodynamic down force on the race track, including a front splitter.

The 2011 Corvette Z06X Track Car Concept features competition-oriented modifications including: an adjustable carbon fiber rear wing, a polycarbonate rear window, roll cage, racing seat and safety harness, racing wheels, suspension enhancements – including coil-over struts with fully adjustable camber plates – racing-spec cooling system and more. The radio, carpeting and sound-deadening material are also removed.

The Corvette Z06X wears a low-gloss Icy White Metallic exterior color, accented with exposed carbon fiber body components and red trim. It rides on black racing wheels and racing tires. The interior is all business, with a racing seat, window net and roll cage-mounted camera system. It includes a racing pedal kit, a Genuine Corvette Accessory.

The 2011 Corvette Z06X features the LS7 7.0L V-8 engine and Tremec six-speed manual transmission; a low-restriction air intake system; and a high-capacity radiator and enhanced cooling system. The Z06X also includes the Z07 Performance Package, featuring Brembo carbon ceramic brake rotors and special brake pads; lightweight racing wheels in black, 19-inch (front) and 20-inch (rear); Michelin racing tires; mono-ball control arm bushing; adjustable stabilizer bars; and coil-over struts with adjustable camber plates.
