GM revealed today the new Chevrolet Corvette Z06X Concept, a new car that showcases how an enthusiast can create its full-on track car. Set to make its debut at the 2010 SEMA Show, the new car was created by Pratt and Miller, partners in Corvette Racing in the American LeMans Series.
The car is based on the Corvette Z06 with the 1LZ equipment package, along with the Z07 Performance Package and CFZ Carbon Fiber Package.
For those who don’t know, the 2011 Corvette Z06 fitted with the Z07 package creates on the "lightest production Corvette and includes carbon ceramic brakes and Magnetic Ride Control. In addition, the CFZ package offers body components that enhance aerodynamic down force on the race track, including a front splitter.
As you can see from the photos, the Z06X Concept comes with a an adjustable carbon fiber rear wing, a polycarbonate rear window, roll cage, racing seat and safety harness, racing wheels, suspension enhancements, a new racing-spec cooling system and more. And because we are talking about a full-on track car, the radio, carpeting and sound-deadening material were also removed.
The concept version features a low-gloss Icy White Metallic exterior color, accented with exposed carbon fiber body components and red trim. The design is completed by the black racing wheels wrapped in high-performance tires.
Inside, we find a racing seat, window net and roll cage-mounted camera system, as well as a racing pedal kit and a Genuine Corvette Accessory.
