Car of the Month

2016 Corvette Z06 C7.R (Coupe)

C.O.M. September 2020

The Z06 was originally designed as a convertible, and the same aluminum frame of that design was adapted for the coupe; therefore, there was no palpable difference in rigidity between the two. Aerodynamic features include a front splitter and a carbon fiber hood with a cooling vent as well as a rear spoiler that incorporates an optional wicker-bill to maximize downforce.
