2012 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 And Z06 Getting Performance Upgrades: Report

Follow Viknesh

The 2012 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Centennial Edition has already made its debut but apparently there are a host of other upgrades planned for the 2012 model year that will be applied to the rest of the Corvette range.

The information was revealed by a dealer source who spoke recently with Inside Line. The source revealed that both the 2012 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 supercar and Z06 will be receiving new performance packs for 2012, including a ‘High Performance’ package for the ZR1 and a new ‘Z07 Ultimate Performance’ package for the Z06.

The ZR1’s High Performance package is said to feature black cup-style aluminum wheels measuring 19-inches up front and 20-inches in the rear, as well as Michelin PS Cup tires and a six-speed manual transmission.

The Z06’s Z07 Ultimate Performance package, meanwhile, is said to get Performance Traction Management (previously a ZR1 exclusive), Michelin PS Cup tires, black cup-style aluminum wheels as well, Magnetic Selective Ride Control and Brembo carbon ceramic brakes.

Finally, expect to see a new ‘Technology’ package featuring a Bose premium sound system, a head-up-display, Bluetooth and USB connectivity and satellite navigation. Carlisle Blue Metallic is also being added to the Corvette’s color palette and the Corvette Convertible should also be available with a new blue soft-top roof.

It sounds like Chevrolet’s updates to the Corvette range should keep buyers happy until its successor, the C7, drops by sometime next year.
