Chevrolet offers big discount for Corvette Z06 amid disappointing sales

Even as Chevrolet is making a huge splash in the industry with the recent launch of the new Corvette ZR1, there may be trouble brewing. Chevrolet has announced huge discounts on its 7th generation Corvette, particularly the Z06. Why is this so? We’re thinking that this might have been brought on by the brand’s 20% overall sales drop in the first ten months of 2017.

Chevrolet has only delivered a total of 1,345 Corvettes this October, a 49% drop compared to the same month last year. Sales have been really bad since January up to October of 2017 as the company has only sold 20,236 units against 25,345 units sold last year. The less than stellar figures majorly contributed to this year’s 20% sales decline.

But then, the Corvette Z06 continues to be one of the most potent muscle cars in the market thanks to its 6.2–liter supercharged V8 engine that generates a massive 650hp (485 kW) and 650 lb-ft (485 Nm) of torque. Not to mention, Chevy offers its customers a choice between an eight speed automatic and a seven speed manual transmission.

Black Chevrolet Corvette Z06 from ACG Automotive has over 1,000 hp of output, Brixton Forged wheels

Sweet and impressive. This is how we could describe the Chevrolet Corvette Z06. As a world-class supercar, the Corvette Z06 is conceived on the track and is engineered to achieve race-like attributes. Its supercharged 6.2L aluminum V8 engine provides up to 650 hp of output and up to 650 lb.-ft. of torque, allowing the Corvette Z06 to sprint from zero to 60 mph in less than three seconds.

But tuner ACG Automotive of San Diego, California, along with forged wheels specialist Brixton Forged of Los Angeles, has managed to make the Corvette Z06 sweeter and more impressive by wrapping it in an matte black package (carbon fiber) and pushing the performance of its V8 engine to a whopping 1,000-plus hp of output. With this, a standard Corvette Z06 pales in comparison, as this black Corvette Z06 project ACG Automotive is at least 50-percent more powerful.

To achieve this, ACG Automotive implemented a full ECU (engine control unit) tune on its supercharged 6.2L aluminum V8 engine. Not only that, ACG Automotive installed a new Halltech intake system on the Corvette Z06. These tweaks allowed the powerplant to deliver more output than it normally does to more than 1,000 hp. But of course, the now more powerful Corvette Z06 needs to be tweaked further to handle all that excess power; and ACG Automotive exactly knows what to do.

Chevrolet resumes Engine Build Experience for Corvette Z06 customers

Once again, Corvette Z06 customers will be able to assemble the supercharged LT4 V8 engine for their cars at the new Performance Build Center located inside the Bowling Green Assembly Plant.

Priced at $5,000, the package includes a full day with a Performance Build Center engine assembly technician who oversees and instructs the build, as well as a personalized engine plaque identifying the owner/builder and the date of the engine build, but also a professional photography of the experience.

Once the package is ordered, personnel from the National Corvette Museum will handle concierge services for the customer, as well as the scheduled built date and handling logistics on the day of the build. Still, the bad news is that the customer will pay the travel costs to Bowling Green and lodging.

Ok, we have to admit that we expected the 2015 Corvette Z06 to be fast but we didn’t now any official numbers. Until today, when the manufacturer revealed the fact that their new vehicle is able to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 2.95 seconds when using the new eight-speed paddle0shift automatic transmission.

When equipped with the standard seven-speed manual transmission, the 2015 Corvette Z06 is a little bit slower, as sprints from naught to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 3.2 seconds. In addition, the sports car runs the quarter mile in 10.95 seconds with the 8-speed automatic and in 11.2 seconds with the 7-speed manual.

Both models hit 127 mph or 205 km/h at the end of the quarter-mile. Still, the Corvette Z06 has also plenty of stopping power and can brake from 60 mph (96 km/h) in 99.6 feet or 30 meters. Corvette Z06 achieves 1.2 g in lateral acceleration, which is better than Corvette’s previous best 1.13 g.

The engine is bolted to a standard seven-speed manual transmission with Active Rev match but as an option, Chevrolet offers the all-new 8L90 eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission.

The 2015 model is the first Corvette Z06 to offer a supercharged engine, an automatic transmission and, thanks to a stronger aluminum frame, a removable roof panel.

Chevrolet has just announced that it will bring the 2015 Corvette Z06 in January, at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show. According to the official press release, this Z06 was designed to deliver supercar levels of performance through unique powertrain, chassis and aerodynamic features.

For the 2015 model year, the Z06 will not only be again part of the Corvette range but it is expected to be the most capable yet in the 62-year history of this iconic vehicle. This new model manages to expand the performance of the Corvette through aerodynamic downforce at unmatched levels. In addition, this will be the first Corvette Z06 to be fitted with a supercharged engine paired to the automatic paddle-shift eight-speed transmissions.

Playing a role as well is the use of a stronger aluminum frame and the removable roof panel. Like how it was in 1963, the Z06 will again come in the convertible or the coupe variant.

If you thought that a hybrid Chevrolet Corvette Z06 (C6) is just a dream, you’d better think again as Quanta has just revealed an add-on hybrid kit for the American supercar. Still, don’t think that the Corvette Z06 is now a fuel-efficient sports car as the hybrid kit boosts the vehicle’s performances and does not improve the fuel consumption.

Quanta Corvette QHP770 uses the same 7.0-liter LS7 V8 engine developing 505 bhp (377 kW) but also a couple of YASA 750 axial flux electric motors built into the rear differential.

The motors generate 134 bhp (100 kW) and get their energy from the lithium-polymer battery pack, which has a capacity of 11.3 kW.

The updated Corvette platform, which is offered in stock trim from subtle to extreme, comes with remarkable capabilities as it easily adapts to revisions providing outstanding performance. This is what Geiger has done with the Corvette Z06 biTURBO. The modifications involved the cylinder block, heads and crank, while the displacement of the 7.0-liter LS7 was raised to 7.6-liters.

The team at Geiger proceeded to install a couple of high-yield turbochargers and an additional airflow at both the intake and exhaust ends to squeeze out the maximum capabilities of the powerplant. The consequence is an 890hp (664kW) at 6,100rpm and 694lb-ft (940Nm) of top torque at 4,500rpm.

These numbers, Geiger claims, will propel the car to 220mph (354km/h). The modifications did not end there, however, as Geiger painted the biTURBO an extremely attractive shade of green finish.
