Developed alongside the Corvette C6.R race car, the Corvette Z06 uses advanced lightweight materials typically found only in the most exotic supercars.

Chevrolet made use of weight-saving materials such as carbon fibre, aluminium, titanium and magnesium.

Previous Corvette Z06 models, from the original 1963 model to the 2001-2004 editions, incorporated suspension and engine upgrades that complemented existing Corvette systems.
