Crown is excited to welcome this modified 2007 Chevrolet Corvette
Z06! In 2007, this was the fastest, most technologically advanced
production model in Corvette's 54-year history. The 2007 Corvette
Z06 offers an unprecedented level of capability and technology,
making it one of the best performance values on the market. And
with an exterior design incorporating aerodynamic features that
were co-developed with the Le Mans winning C6.R race car, the '07
Z06 has a visual attitude that always looks ready to demonstrate
Corvette's winning attitude to any challenger around the globe. And
the modifications to this Z06 take this Corvette to a whole new
level! This 7.0L engine delivers 1,057 horsepower with 776 of
torque, in a 3,500-pound package - a combination that delivers a
top speed of 198 mph. Crown Concepts will be happy to provide any
interested buyer with a detailed document of all modifications to
Chevrolet reintroduced the 427-cubic-inch engine to the Corvette
lineup. Unlike the previous 427 engine, which was a big-block
design, the 7.0-liter is a small-block V-8 - the
largest-displacement small-block ever produced by Chevrolet and GM,
and a tribute to its 50 years as a performance icon. The LS7 shares
the same basic Gen IV V-8 architecture as the Corvette's 6.0-liter
LS2, but it uses a different cylinder block casting with pressed-in
steel cylinder liners to accommodate the engine's larger diameter,
104.8-mm-wide cylinder bores. Compared with the LS2, the LS7 also
has a different front cover, oil pan, exhaust manifolds and
cylinder heads - among many other components. Internally, the LS7's
reciprocating components make use of racing-derived lightweight
technology, including titanium connecting rods and intake valves,
to help boost horsepower and rpm capability.
The LS7's CNC-ported aluminum cylinder heads are designed to meet
the high airflow demands of the engine's 7.0-liter displacement, as
it ingests approximately 100 cubic feet more air per minute than
the Corvette's 6.0-liter LS2 V-8 - an 18-percent increase in
airflow. Consequently, a hydraulic roller camshaft
with.588/.593-inch valve lift is used to allow plenty of air to
circulate in and out of the engine.
In terms of the drivetrain and chassis, the Z06's powertrain and
drivetrain systems are matched to this Corvette's performance
capability. The light, four-into-one headers discharge into new,
close-coupled catalytic converters and through to new "bi-modal"
mufflers. The mufflers each feature a vacuum-actuated outlet valve,
which controls exhaust noise during low-load operation but opens
for maximum power.
At the rear of this Corvette is a single-mass flywheel and
lightweight, high-capacity clutch channel torque to the rear
transaxle. The six-speed manual transmission has been strengthened
to handle the increased torque load. The transmission includes a
pump that sends transmission fluid to the front radiator for
cooling. Upon its return, the fluid removes additional heat from
the differential lube before returning to the transmission. The
six-speed transmission connects to a limited-slip differential,
with enlarged ring and pinion gears. Stronger axle half-shafts with
tougher universal joints transmit power to the rear wheels.
Comfort and convenience are held to a very high standard.
High-Intensity Discharge lighting, fog lamps, leather seating,
dual-zone air conditioning, cabin air filtration and head-up
display (HUD) with track mode and g-meter are included. Runs/drives
