When Chevrolet revisited its past to introduce a new Z06 two-door hard top in 2001, it also added $7,000 to the base car’s $40,475 sticker price.
The new Z06 offered a new, more powerful engine, the 386-hp LS6. The LS6 had a new block, new intake and exhaust manifolds, new cylinder heads, unique camshaft profile, and higher capacity fuel injector. All Z06s had titanium exhaust systems and came with 6-speed transmissions.
They didn’t have run-flat tires or a tire pressure monitoring system, but they did carry a larger front sway bar and stiffer rear springs. Interiors were leather, and the tach redlined at 6,500 rpm, instead of the LS1’s 6,000 rpm.
By 2003, horsepower was up to 405 hp. This car features Quicksilver exterior paint—an original Z06 color—black leather interior, memory package, electro-chromatic mirrors, head-up display, air conditioning, power windows, power locks, and more; it is described as having every option. It also has an aftermarket Borla exhaust, exhaust panel dress-up plate, and tinted rear window. It has never seen rain and has been stored inside.
