General Motors Co. has recently unveiled the Chevrolet Corvette Z06X Concept, a new car that displays how an enthusiast can create its full-on track car. This concept, which made its debut at the 2010 SEMA Show, 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. The 2011 Corvette Z06 fitted with the Z07 package refers to the lightest production Corvette and includes carbon ceramic brakes and Magnetic Ride Control.
Furthermore, the CFZ package offers body components that boost the aerodynamic down force on the race track, including a front splitter.
The Z06X Concept features 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 other elements. Since this is a full-on track car, the carmaker removed the radio, carpeting and sound-deadening material.
The concept version features a low-gloss Icy White Metallic exterior color, accented with exposed carbon fiber body components and red trim.
It is fitted with black racing wheels covered in high-performance tires. It is equipped with a racing seat, window net and roll cage-mounted camera system, as well as a racing pedal kit and a Genuine Corvette Accessory.
