Tuning company Katech have come to the party with a lightweight version of the popular Corvette Z06. The Z06 Clubsport incorporates an array of aftermarket products that, in unison, reduce curb weight to 1,322 kg, while improving grip, cornering, braking and downforce.

“The Z06 is already light weight,” commented Jason Harding from Katech Performance. “We knew, however, that we could improve the power-to-weight ratio with several select modifications. Lamborghini has its Gallardo Superleggera, Ferrari its F430 Scuderia and Dodge its Viper ACR. Now the Corvette Z06 has the ClubSport package.”

To keep weight down Katech have made some serious modifications to the basic vehicle. A Brembo brake kit with 14-inch rotors replace standard brakes, 15-spoke alloy rims connect power to tarmac, a performance exhaust system and a complete Moton Clubsport suspension set up take over from the stock offering. Carbon fibre has replaced body parts at the rear and front and a new Exedy twin-disc clutch reduces drivetrain weight.

So what’s the final verdict? A power-to-weight ratio of 2.47kg/horsepower, and one hot looking Vette.
