Corvette Z06 Gifted An Extra Second Against Chevy Camaro ZL1

By  | 

Many would say that the arrival of the latest generation Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE has made it harder for the Corvette to shine and this is due to a lot of component-sharing across the two monikers.

Well, the Z06 may be hurt knowing that the Camaro ZL1 1LE is running on the same V8 that it relies on but Chevrolet is not going to let it slide. As an answer to the critics, Chevrolet had just released a mild upgrade for selected Corvettes and it will hand the affected vehicles and extra second around the track.

We say extra second because a demonstration of the Z06 with the upgrade on a track saw the vehicle completing the challenge a full second faster than before.

What’s best about it is that the upgrade costs only $350 and you can check with Chevrolet on if your Corvette can obtain it.
