There were some differences to the normal C6 Corvette in the Z06: Among other things, a 7.0-liter LS7 V8 aluminum engine with sodium-filled exhaust valves and titanium connecting rods, wider fenders and an aluminum frame were used.

After consultation with the current owner, he has assured that there are no defects in the exterior of the Corvette with its CFRP elements, which could cloud the very well-maintained and well-preserved body condition. Only the GRP sill under the passenger door was repainted, otherwise this Corvette still proudly wears its first paint dress. Modifications deviating from the original condition are not to be determined.
In addition to the exterior color, the ZR1 rims with 19 inches on the front axle and 20 inches on the rear axle also cause a sensation.

It is also worth mentioning that all original parts such as camshaft, air filter, seats and rims are available and can be added to the Z06 on request.
