The Chevrolet Corvette Z06 (C6) is a high performance variation of the Corvette (C6) released in 2005 for the 2006 model year.
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.

Need for Speed: Carbon
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.

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.
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 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.
