2003 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Coupe
By now, we all probably know the kind of incredible performance Corvette Z06's are capable of. Introduced way back in 1963 as the ultimate track package for America's favorite sports car, the marque has spent the better part of the last 20 years embarrassing much more expensive competitors.
As the successor to the C4 Corvette ZR1 extreme performance option, the C5 Z06 took horsepower and handling to another level. Using a tuned version of the standard LS1 Corvette engine, the Z06 produced 405hp and was weighed considerably less than its high-powered predecessor. Available only in hard top configuration due to the added structural rigidity, improvements included upgraded FE4 suspension, larger wheels and tires, revised gear ratios, functional brake ducts, titanium exhaust, thinner glass, lighter wheels, and less sound proofing materials. These improvements allowed the Z06 to accelerate from 0-60 in just 4 seconds and 12.4 seconds in the quarter mile.
Presented is a beautiful black 2003 Corvette Z06. With just 34,500 two owner miles, this Z06 has been lovingly cared for and it shows. Always garaged and covered and never driven in inclement weather, this rocket ship comes with all options. At first glance, this Z06 doesn't look like much more than a stock Corvette, but then you see it next to a standard Corvette and notice the wider fenders, more muscular look, and chrome aluminum wheels, with a hint of the red brake calipers peeking out. Where the standard Corvette looks aggressive, this one looks downright nasty, as if it would just as happily devour stray birds that got too close as it would the high octane in its twin fuel tanks.
Behind the doors you'll find an Ebony leather interior that balances modern convenience with a fair amount of style. The car's power-adjustable seats are supple and supportive. A “CORVETTE” branded dash hangs electroluminescent telemetry between a small Heads Up Display and optional infotainment, which pipes sounds through a 7-speaker Bose sound system. Below that dash, a broad console balances a short-throw shifter between clean carpet, metal foot pedals and “CORVETTE” branded sill plates. In front of the driver, a leather-wrapped steering wheel laps a standard tilt column. And naturally, all the luxuries you'd expect in a high dollar sports car are present and accounted for including: power windows, climate control, power steering, cruise control, and push button traction control.
The Z06 uses a high-output (LS6), a tuned version of the standard Corvette's (LS1) producing 405hp . Although the Z06's total output was less than that of the last ZR-1's, the Z06 was much lighter and faster than the ZR-1 in every category except for top speed. It is backed by an M16 transmission
Very clean and absolutely rust free, and a plethora of lightweight materials in use. Vented disc brakes, and a drip free engine and differential.
Wrapping Le Mans-inspired athleticism in the sensory allure of timeless black on black aesthetics.
Just Pennsylvania inspected, this Corvette needs nothing more than a new owner to love, care and enjoy as its previous two owners obviously have. Unbelievable performance and value for what certainly will be one of Corvette's most coveted models. When you see this car, you know it's something special, I don't care who you are.
