DNA of a Supercar – Chevy shows off their Z06 & ZR1 all-aluminum frame.
Click the images to see the REALLY BIG version.
The August 2011 issue of Motor Trend Magazine arrived in my mailbox today with a special treat from Chevrolet. Starting on page 35, there’s a 6-page, fold-out, tear-out, double-sided ad for the 2012 Corvette Z06 Centennial Edition Corvette. You are first greeted with a passenger side front 3/4 view of the latest Special Edition Corvette at speed on a lonely road.
The flip side shows Corvette fans a view of the Z06 that we don’t get to see very often… the bare, hydroformed aluminum frame used on the Z06 and the ZR1. The ad copy is peppered with detailed descriptions of the LS3 and LS7 engines, the carbon-ceramac brakes, the new and improved interior, and the to-die-for Michelin Pilot Sport Cup Zero Pressure tires.
Chevrolet pitchman, Tim Allen, tells us that “Chevy runs deep.”
Now we get to see what’s deep under all those beautiful fiberglass and carbon fiber body panels. SHWEET!
