The Z06 traces its origins back to 1963 (C2) when 199 were built under the development lead of Zora Arkus-Duntov. Since 2001 and the release of the C5 Z06 the Z has been on an ever increasing power and performance curve. With the C5 Z06 and its LS6 power plant the Z06 delivered 405HP to the crank. The C6 Z06 is where the platform really came into its own sporting a HUGE 7.0L LS7 naturally aspirated power plant and new body style. This NA Z06 put down 505HP - again, without any forced induction. The C7 iteration of the Z06 married a 1.7L blower to a newly minted 6.2L aluminum LT4 motor making over 640HP and sporting yet another new modern body design. We'll admit it - we're fans of all of the Z06 variants - even the C2.
