Chevrolet Z06 X Corvette

During SEMA 2010 Chevrolet has come up with a brilliant racing beast geared up for the roads. The 2011 Chevrolet Z06 X Concept car is made for adrenaline pumped guys ready for some action. The Chevrolet Z06 X is a Corvette which stands alone in its terrain when it comes to superior technology and capability.

 

With its racing inspired power train and suspension features, its svelte aluminum frame and carbon fiber fenders and floor panels, it achieves exceptional levels of capability. Not only this, it weighs just 1440 kg and is the lightest, best balanced Corvette to come on the scene.

The car has taken an ordinary Chevrolet Z06 concept and equipped it with a roll cage which is SSCA approved, a racing seat and a harness and fire suppression system. The car has carbon fiber body panels which make it significantly lighter and easier to maneuver. It has been provided with a polycarbonate rear window. The radio system, carpet and sound deadening material have been removed in the concept. Of course, this is just a concept but it looks like the perfect car to stand up to the Dodge Viper ACR-X.

It is hard, as it is, to find fault with the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Concept, but the designers have basically come up with a car which takes the best of both the Z06 and Z07 to come up with a concept that enables it for a round around the race course.

General Motors has done an extensive overhauling of its system. A largely improved cooling system as well as a heavy duty radiator and a low restriction air intake system have been added.

The suspension setup has been modified including adjustable stabilizer bars, mono-ball control arm bushings and coil-over struts. In addition to that, these struts have adjustable camber plates. The concept has been given light weight racing wheels and Brembo carbon-ceramic brake rotors. These car rotors are also part of the Corvette Z07, but these wheels which have been touched up in a dark shade and capped with Michelin's racing rubber are exclusive only to the Z06 Corvette concept.

The black finish complements Z06's exterior design beautifully. Most body parts are essentially stock, but General Motors car has been painted in a white metallic color with a black racing stripe and red fascia, and some red highlights. The interior of the Z06 X is equipped with an interior trim and insulation, so that the SCCA roll cage can be installed.

Though the car is touted to be the best in terms of race functionality, it is possible to use it as a daily drivable performance oriented vehicle. Comfort and convenience have been kept to a very great standard in the 2011 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 X. The standard features in this car include high or all of its race-inspired functionality.

The Z06 is designed to be a daily-drivable, high-performance vehicle. To that end, comfort and convenience are held to a very high standard. Standard features include high-Intensity discharge lighting, fog lamps, leather seating, dual-zone air conditioning, cabin air filtration and head-up display (HUD) with track mode and g-meter.
