Are you an owner of a C7 Chevy Corvette and looking for some extra performance? Perhaps, you take your Vette to the track and looking to improve your lap times? Well, Chevrolet has something to help you. The 2015 Chevy Corvette Z06 coupe and convertible are not on sale yet. These come out in early 2015. What do you think about installing some of the Z06 parts onto your C7? Chevrolet wants to hear your feedback.
The concept parts include:
- Z06 stabilizer bars, control arms and the Z06’s unique composite transverse leaf spring
- Unique Bilstein shocks, tuned to match the chassis components of the Z06
- Z06 front and rear brakes (steel rotors) – featuring Brembo aluminum six-piston front calipers and four-piston rear calipers; and 14.6-inch-diameter front rotors and 14.4-inch rear rotors
- Z06 front and rear brakes (carbon ceramic rotors) – the brakes from the Z06’s available Z07 package include 15.5-inch carbon ceramic matrix front rotors and 15.3-inch carbon rear rotors
- Z06 front brake ducts
- Z06 600-watt radiator electric fan for superior cooling capability
- Z06 front grille, which offers 17-percent greater airflow than the grille on the Stingray with the Z51 package – and it includes inlets that match the Z06 front brake ducts
- Z06 rear transmission oil cooler – a larger cooler assembly that replaces the one used on the Stingray’s Z51 package for about 15-percent more cooling capacity
- Z06 front auxiliary transmission cooler that essentially doubles the overall cooling capacity
- Z06 rear quarter-panel vents that provide approximately 25-percent greater airflow than the Z51 vents at track speed
- Z06 carbon fiber torque tube that is about 13.2 pounds lighter than the Stingray’s torque tube
- Z06 drive shaft couplers that are designed to stand up to higher exhaust heat than the Stingray and Z51 couplers
- Z06 carbon fiber underbody braces are 17-percent lighter than the Stingray’s aluminum braces, while offering comparable stiffness
- Z06 high-wing rear spoiler with wicker, based on the available carbon fiber aero package.
We do not have pricing for the components. However, please let us know in the comments section below which components if any you think would be worth the upgrade. Of course, you can just buy the Z06 next year, right?
