The Z06 sparked the second half of the C5’s life span with a Corvette model for the extreme performance enthusiast.

LS7 engine

"The all-new LS7 of the ’06 Z06 reintroduces the 427-cubic-inch engine to the Corvette lineup. Unlike the previous 427 engine, which was a big-block design, the new 7.0-liter LS7 is a small-block V-8 – the largest-displacement small-block ever produced by GM and a tribute to its 50 years as a performance icon.
With 500 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque, it also is the most powerful passenger car engine ever produced by Chevrolet and GM. The LS7 is easily identified under the hood by red engine covers with black lettering. "

The second pic is my fav! The most impressive stat there , imo, is the 7000rpm redline and the 0-100mph in 7.7seconds which matches the mighty porsche 959.


Holy shit, that's a 10 second car with drag radials.
