Default Chevrolet Corvette Z06X

Chevrolet Corvette Z06X Concept – Click above for high-res image gallery

Chevrolet was kind enough to give us a sneak sampling of what the company has planned for SEMA 2010, and the star of the show looks to be the car you see above. Called the Corvette Z06X, the bruiser is effectively a race-ready behemoth with a host of suspension tweaks and a slew of weight-reducing materials on board. Built by the Corvette legends at Pratt and Miller, this Satin White machine started its life as a Z06 with the CFZ carbon-fiber package. Throw in an adjustable rear wing borrowed straight from the C6R along with a full SCCA roll cage and you've got the bones for go-fast trackday goodness.

Under the hood, the standard LS7 V8 benefits from a new low-restriction intake and a more robust coolant system. The suspension wizards at PFADT were so kind as to supply a set of mono-ball control arm bushings, adjustable stabilizer bars and a complete coilover suspension, too.

Chevrolet has also bolted on a new raised carbon-fiber hood along with carbon headlight housings to shave a few pounds. The biggest weight savings, however, has to come from the polycarbonate rear window which is also lifted straight from the C6R. Hit the jump for the full press release and check out our gallery below.

I am assuming this will not be a production car but a car, if you have some money, can obtain. This is probably their design to compete with the rumored (non-production) 1000hp Mustang.

What a beautiful car!! The Z06's only previous flaw was its suspension on the track at speed, not with that fixed whats not to love? Are they going to be for sale?

If the camaro was about 500 lbs lighter it would be excellent! Why couldnt GM build a muscle car that doesnt weigh as much as a boat?

Cool car. Too bad it'd probably be $100k+ if it ever made it to production.

So the only thing I'm iffy about are the GM cabon brakes... If they were HUGE honking brembo units... I'd jump for joy.

The rest of the car is amazing.. and I'd price it at ~150K

The carbon brakes on the ZR-1 are Brembo units.

Pretty sure we got to see this car run at closed VIR session last month. It didn't have the pretty labels and such, but it was fast. It was there with 4 other GM Stealth cars.

I think this is in response to the viper ACR-X.. The x should give the less deductive of you a big hint.

Actually the rear brakes of the zr1 are reported as front brakes from the enzo and the front brakes are reported as off the FXX (even bigger).

Alll I know for sure is watching them being assembled in bowling green KY, they look almost Comically large.

I thought the white/red accents scheme on Corvette special editions was being reserved for racing legend Ron Fellows special edition models?
