You'd be forgiven if you thought that this is the new Corvette C7.R race car, and not the 2015 Corvette Z06 . From the aggressive winglets on the front wheel openings to the low carbon fiber air splitter to the see-through high spoiler out back, this thing screams race car. Apparently when members of the race sanctioning body for the new C7.R's series came to GM to view the car, they thought the Z06 was the racing version of the Corvette too.
Whereas the last Z06 was barely discernibly different from the regular 'Vette, this puppy is obviously something special. The Corvette Stingray is already a ridiculously good-looking car, but the Z06 treatment takes it a step further. The grille is more menacing, the heat extractor in the hood is bigger, the badges are on the sides, NACA-style ducting tops the rear fenders and all of it screams race car.
