The pace car's brakes, wheels and tires are all stock. 2006 Chevrolet Corvette Front Climate Controls 2006 Chevrolet Corvette Armrest 2006 Chevrolet Corvette Detail of Suspension Controls Wider fender flares, unique side scoops, and a functional cold-air hood differentiate the Z06 from standard-issue Corvettes. Supporting the LS7's case is one of the coolest exhaust notes we've ever heard. Think Ferrari with monster cajones. All C6 Corvettes corner well, but it's tougher to find the sweet spot in the engine's torque curve to accelerate out of the corner when using the paddle-shift automatic. It just takes too long to respond to driver requests. 2006 Chevrolet Corvette Rearview Mirror 2006 Chevrolet Corvette DVD/CD Loader The Corvette automatic's six forward gears can operate in three different modes — Drive, Sport and Paddle Shift. None of those modes is a good substitute for a manual transmission. The Z06 rumbles through four big exhaust pipes and wears the largest wheel and tire package ever fitted to a Corvette. With 427 cubic inches and 500 hp, the LS7 is the largest and most powerful Chevy small-block engine ever. Thanks to extra gummy Goodyear F1 S/C performance run-flat radials and the sophisticated Competition Mode traction control system, the 2006 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 not only makes quick work of corners but is startlingly easy to drive fast. The Z06 package includes seats with more aggressive bolsters and available contrasting gray panels, but we still weren't satisfied with their ability to hold our backside in place. The entire chassis has been converted from steel to lightweight aluminum except for the roof rails and engine cradle, which are magnesium. Despite losing almost 200 pounds, the chassis is stiffer than the stocker's steel version. 2006 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Seating
