The 2001 Chevrolet Corvette

2001 Navy Blue Corvette

The new Corvette Z06 was introduced in 2001. It included the new LS6 engine that produces 385 horsepower and a new manual transmission to transfer the power. RPO Z06 could not be ordered with an automatic transmission. The transmission is geared more aggresively and torque is used more efficiently. RPO Z06 also included the Z51 suspension as standard equipment. New larger brakes with a new cooling vent for the rear brakes. The vents are located on each side of the car in front of the rear wheels. Z06 also included tires that were 1" wider than the coupe and convertible. Because the tires are not EMT (run-flat) they are 23 pounds lighter. This also added the requirement for a jack and tire repair kit because there is no room for a spare tire. The front and rear glass in the Z06 was made thinner to reduce weight in the Z06. The exhaust system is constructed of titanium to decrease weight, it was also redesigned to increase flow and create a more aggresive sound. These two weight saving measures removed 40 pounds from the car. The base coupe and convertible Vettes also received a power increase to 350 horsepower by utilizing the intake from the new LS6. New chrome exhaust tips, standard active handling and a transmission fluid sensor were added to the base model as well.
