2001 Corvette lineup
As with any serious performance car, light weight was the goal for the Z06. Towards that end, thinner glass and less insulation along with other sacrifices resulted in a weight loss of 100 lbs compared to the coupe. Still on the menu however was air conditioning and the premium sound system.

All hardtop Corvettes were equipped with the Z06 option and the only transmission available was the manual six speed, which said something about the new 'vettes intentions.
