The 2006 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 (C6) is the first model year introducing a high performance variation of the Corvette (C6).

Chevrolet gave the Z06 a power increase with the installation of the 7.0L LS7 engine. Other improvements included carbon fibre front fenders, magnesium alloy engine cradle, and aluminium frame.

Visual differences from the regular C6 were larger front and rear fenders, and an intake inlet on the front bumper.

Games

Need for Speed: Carbon

The Corvette Z06 appears in Need for Speed: Carbon as a tier 3 muscle class car.

Handling is its biggest drawback; it will usually oversteer when entering corners, requiring gentle acceleration to exit a corner without breaking traction. While it can be difficult to control, its lap times can rival - or even surpass - those of grippy cars with an effective set up.

Stock

The stock Corvette Z06 is unlocked for purchase in the Career mode depending on the player's chosen career path:

Once unlocked, it can be purchased from any Car Lot for 175,000 cash.

Need for Speed Carbon: Own the City

The Corvette Z06 appears in Need for Speed Carbon: Own the City. It is purchasable by $130,000 and is unlocked after defeating Scotty. The car is also driven by Clutch.

Need for Speed: ProStreet

The Corvette Z06 appears in Need for Speed: ProStreet as a tier 3 car with a price tag of $80,000. The car can perform well in turns despite being equipped with a 7.0L V8 engine. It is unlocked upon the player winning Super Promotion's Showdown II: Autopolis race day.

The acceleration of the Z06 is better than that of other tier 3 cars. Grip events are the best events for the Corvette to participate in, although Speed races are also recommendable as well as drift events.

Need for Speed: Undercover

The Corvette Z06 appears in Need for Speed: Undercover as a tier 1 car with a price tag of $200,000. It is unlocked upon the player reaching Wheelman Level 13.5. It appears in the PlayStation 2 and Wii releases with a price tag of $110,000.

The Z06 has the second best acceleration in the game just behind the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 and can hit 248 mph (399 km/h) with fully upgraded performance.

Dominator

The Dominator is unlocked upon completing 30 events of the Need for Speed: Undercover/Challenge Series Expansion.

It is upgraded with performance parts that increase its top speed to 247 mph (397 km/h). It has powerful acceleration and responsive handling even when at high speeds.

Need for Speed: Shift

The Corvette Z06 appears in Need for Speed: Shift as a tier 3 vehicle with a $210,000 price tag and a 11.10 car rating. It is unlocked upon the player earning 80 stars and is capable of a Works conversion.

Its strong acceleration trait remains a key aspect in the Shift series although it tends to oversteer in turns under hard cornering. The Z06 has also been known to have difficulty accelerating from the start line.

Need for Speed: World

The Corvette Z06 was added to Need for Speed: World as a tier 3 vehicle on June 28, 2010 during the final closed beta stage. Since August 22, 2012, it has been featured as an A class vehicle.

The car used to be competitive in tier 3 due to its strong acceleration and high top speed comparable with the BMW M3 GTR before the 5.00 update. As part of patch 5.42, the Z06 received improved performance to make it more competitive against newer car additions to the game.

The Corvette now handles better and has an acceleration similar to the Ford GT. The top speed was also increased to 190 mph (305 km/h). However, due to having a lightened weight, it seems to perform worse in pursuits than before. Its handling is still less precise than higher-priced in-game cash cars such as the Lamborghini Murciélago LP 640 as well as possessing a weak nitrous boost.
