The ConceptZ is a nod to a relationship Nowicki Autosport founder Jeff Nowicki has shared with the Michelin tire company. They have been using Michelin tires on their race cars and tuner cars for over 25 years, while Jeff also serves as a Brand Ambassador and specialty driver for Michelin events.
'We've had a tremendous relationship with Michelin over the years and this new 650 horsepower ConceptZ Z06 honors that successful partnership. Michelin tires are standard on the regular-production Z06, making this tribute vehicle all the more appropriate. The new ConceptZ components help make the most of the exceptional grip the tires offer.'
This unique Z06 features Michelin-inspired graphics, including a 'ghosted' image of Bibendum, the company's famous mascot, in the hood graphic. It also incorporates elements and input from additional Nowicki Autosport partners including Purifoy Chevrolet, Brembo, BASF, Forgeline Wheels, Sonic Tools, Hotchkis Sport suspension and is filled with Mobil 1.
The new ConceptZ components showcased on this car build on the successful range of ConceptZ Corvette Stingray components Nowicki Autosport pioneered at the launch at the SEMA Show in 2013 in the Mobil 1 display. The lineup of carbon fiber includes: heat extractor, A-pillars, front fender flares, ConceptZ rocker panels, fender gills, lower brake duct intakes, rear quarter intake ducts, targa bar, rear spoiler, 3 piece rear wicker, tail lamp bezels, and a rear lower diffuser. It also features the Nowicki Hotchkis adjustable stabilizer bars for track duty.
