CORVETTE HISTORY

The Z06 name finally returned in 2001, for the fifth generation Corvette. Instead of the base model’s 350 horse LS1 engine, it came with a 385 horsepower LS6 engine but buy 2003 the horsepower was increased to 405hp. Instead of having a removable Targa roof, its ceiling was fixed in place for extra rigidity and handling performance. Bigger brakes were fitted, too, along with a titanium exhaust system. In 2004, a carbon fiber hood was bolted on for added lightness. While it wasn’t a Corvette meant for the track like the original Z06 was, it was certainly track-able.
