An aluminium structure for the new Corvette Z06
The famous automaker endowed its new car with an aluminium structure, making it 20 percent stronger than the previous Z06.
“We wanted a frame that was lighter than the steel frame of the previous Corvette, yet strong enough for both a 600-horsepower convertible and a 24-hour endurance racer,” said Ed Moss, engineering group manager for Corvette structures. “That would not have been possible without […] improving strength and stiffness, while reducing mass.”
The Z06 Convertible’s weight remains the same as the hardtop Z06 since the aluminium structure did not need further reinforcements. Furthermore, the new Chevrolet sports car has a droptop which can open and close up to 50km/h (31.069 miles per hour).
