2016 Chevy Corvette Z06At For Car Fans, we know that many of our readers have a love of high-performance vehicles, which is why we know you’re as excited as we are to talk about the Corvette Z06. When it comes to cars, there are few that can dream of comparing to a Corvette, and the 2016 Chevy Corvette Z06 performance specs now have the supercars of the world in their crosshairs. Priced at just $79,400 (MSRP), the 2016 Corvette Z06 is more powerful and more fun to drive than cars that cost two or three times as much, and it’s due to the combination of the supercharged aluminum V8 engine and the sport-tuned engineering. Let’s take a look at the specs of the Z06. Rest assured, you’ll want to get behind the wheel for yourself, but this is a good start.

Performance Specs

  • Under the Hood – Each of the 2016 Corvette Z06 models is powered by a naturally aspirated supercharged 6.2L V8 engine with 650 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque.
  • Transmission – Go old school with a 7-speed stick-shift manual transmission or embrace the latest in auto tech with an advanced 8-speed automatic transmission that gets the most out of the supercharged engine.
  • Suspension – Standard Magnetic Ride technology adapts every 10 to 15 milliseconds to adjust for current driving conditions and ensure a smooth ride.
  • Aero Package – The standard Z06 aero package comes with a unique carbon fiber hood, a new front splitter, a unique rear spoiler for improved downforce over the normal Corvette, and spats around the front wheel openings.
  • Performance Data Recorder – Show off your fiercest maneuvers with the built-in performance data recorder, logging video and real-time performance data as you drive.

These features are just a few that allow the Z06 to leave hotrods and sports cars in the past and go toe-to-toe with the best supercars in the world.
