The C6-generation Chevrolet Corvette Z06 was launched for the 2006 model year and equipped with a new 7.0-liter V8 LS7 engine, the largest-displacement small block engine ever produced. This launch year example comes finished in Black over a Red interior and is now being offered for auction by its third owner out of Ohio showing just over 12k miles on the odometer.
Compared to a standard C6 Corvette, the Z06 is differentiated by wider carbon fiber front fenders, wider fiberglass rear fenders, functional brake cooling ducts, an intake scoop on the front bumper, and a larger rear spoiler and front splitter. This example is finished in Black with red brake calipers and factory 18”/19” forged aluminum wheels dressed in Nitto tires from 2014. Noted imperfections include scrapes on the front plastic lip spoiler, a chip on the rocker below the driver’s door, and some general signs of road-going wear. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.
This Corvette sports a Red interior featuring a 6-way power driver’s seat, a tilting leather-wrapped steering wheel, dual-zone electronic A/C, and a head-up display. Other accessories include keyless access with a pushbutton start, power heated outside mirrors, an electronic rear window defogger, cruise control, leather seating surfaces, and an AM/FM stereo. All features are said to be working properly and some wrinkles are noted on the driver’s seat.
Producing up to 505 HP, the naturally aspirated 7.0-liter V8 LS7 engine drives the rear wheels by way of a 6-speed manual transmission with a limited-slip differential and 3.42 rear axle ratio. Standard performance features include the Active Handling system, traction control, speed-sensitive power steering, a transmission cooler, and stiffer shocks, springs, and sway bars compared to a standard Corvette. The Z06 also receives larger 6-piston front and 4-piston rear brake calipers paired with cross-drilled rotors. An aftermarket remote exhaust valve switch has been installed and the seller states routine oil changes have been kept up to date.
This sale will include the original window sticker and a clean title.
