Chevrolet and drivers from the Ron Fellows Corvette high-performance driving school at the Spring Mountain track recently demonstrated Corvette Stingray models enhanced with components from a new lineup of Z06-based performance parts.
They’re designed for 2014+ Stingray models, including Z51-equipped cars.
Ron Fellows, champion Corvette Racing driver, collaborated with Chevrolet Performance engineers on the all-new portfolio.
Many will be used in cars in the new Michelin Corvette Challenge racing series, which was developed with Fellows and will run a 15-race schedule starting in February 2016.
“Here at Spring Mountain, we drive the Corvette Stingray and Z06 at their limits nearly every day, so we’re in a unique position to recognize the parts that are most effective,” said Ron Fellows. “
The effect of the new, Z06-based parts on the Stingray’s track capability is dramatic.
They take the Stingray’s already great stopping and cornering capabilities to yet another exciting level of stability and precision.”
Most of the Z06 parts are offered as direct replacements for the Stingray’s original parts.
Performance is driven by the standard LT1 6.2-litre V8, rated at 460 hp and 465 lb/ft of torque with the available exhaust system, and backed by a seven-speed manual transmission with Active Rev Match.
