About the C5 Z06..
The 5th generation Corvette, produced from 1997-2004, was originally available only in a coupe body style. Subsequent years added the convertible and the fixed-roof coupe (FRC) to the lineup, but all used the same aluminum small block engine, the LS1 V8. The game changed in 2001 when Chevy refined the FRC with weight-saving components and additional power in the form of the LS6 V8 engine. This exciting package was dubbed the Z06 – a nod to the ultra-rare, high horsepower beast of the 2nd generation Corvette. By 2003, the LS6 produced 405 hp and 400 lbs-ft of torque.
