Chevrolet Corvette Z06X Track Car Unleashed at SEMA


GM invited us out to Vegas a day early to treat us to a sneak peek at some of their SEMA Show cars. We met at Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch, home to the Ron Fellows Racing School – along with one of the best private member tracks in the world. The first car that GM showed us looked right at home in this setting – The 2011 Chevrolet Corvette Z06X Track Car Concept.

This white and black ‘Vette was developed by Pratt and Miller, the firm that prepares most of the Corvette race cars for Chevrolet – just like the C6R.S parked next to it. The Z06X concept starts as a Corvette Z06 with the 1LZ package, the Z07 Performance Package and the CFZ Carbon Fiber Package. Sounds like a perfect showroom selection from your local Chevy dealer. It goes a few steps further than that dealership darling however.

It uses a lot of off-the-shelf parts from General Motors Performance Parts to create a club racer of sorts. The Z06X Concept gets some full competition mods including an adjustable carbon fiber rear wing, a polycarbonate rear window, roll cage, racing seat and safety harness, racing wheels, suspension tweaks that include coil-over struts with fully adjustable camber plates, a racing-spec cooling system and more. It does lose a few things in the process, however, like the radio, carpeting and sound-deadening material. They won't be missed.

Will they build it? Nobody is saying just yet, but if enough gentlemen racers show up with blank checks in hand, we can't see any reason why they wouldn't. Live pics and media pics below, along with the full press release.
