2001 Chevrolet Corvette

2001 CHEVROLET CORVETTE BACKGROUND
Other than the new Z06, not much changed on the 2001 Corvette. Chevrolet bumped the horsepower of the base LS1 to 350 horsepower by using the freer-flowing intake manifold from the Z06's LS6. Active Handling (AHS) became standard on all Corvettes. New chromed exhaust tips and a transmission fluid level sensor were added.

2001 CHEVROLET CORVETTE Z06
Chevrolet launched its highest-performance Corvette yet in 2001, the Z06. Intended as a track car, the Z06 came with a hotter version of the 5.7 V8, dubbed LS6, making 385 horsepower and 385 pound-feet of torque, a 35-horse bump over the standard LS1-powered 2001 Chevrolet Corvette. It also came with revised suspension, bigger brakes, bigger wheels and tires, enhanced cooling and much more. Interestingly, Chevy elected not to give the Z06 a more distinctive look, so they're hard to spot. They look very much like a standard Corvette, except that they're always made from the Fixed Roof Coupe (FRC) and the big giveaway: the big brake cooling ducts just ahead of the rear wheel openings.
