BIRMINGHAM, Mich. – Nowicki Autosport has launched the all-new ConceptZ range of styling and aerodynamic aids for 2015+ Corvette Z06 models – and showcased them on a stunning,
black Michelin-themed 2016 Z06.
The car is a nod to the more than 25-year relationship Nowicki Autosport founder Jeff Nowicki has shared with the tire company, using Michelin tires on his race cars and tuner cars, while also serving as a Brand Ambassador and specialty driver for Michelin events.
“We’ve had a tremendous relationship with Michelin over the years and this new ConceptZ Z06 honors that successful partnership,” said Nowicki. “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.”
In 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 such as Purifoy Chevrolet, Brembo, BASF, Mobil 1, Adam’s Polishes, Hotchkis Sport Suspension, Hawk Performance and Image Quest Graphics.
The new ConceptZ components showcased on the car build on the successful range of Concept7 Corvette Stingray components Nowicki Autosport pioneered at the launch of the Corvette’s seventh generation.
The lineup includes:
ConceptZ carbon fiber hood vent insert – It replaces the factory insert, enhancing the Corvette’s appearance with a rich-looking, racing-inspired aesthetic. Made from high-quality, lightweight 3K twill carbon fiber material that matches the OE carbon fiber, along with vinyl ester-infused resin, for exceptional strength and appearance characteristics, the insert is hand-polished for a deep luster. Installation takes less than 30 minutes and uses factory fasteners supplied with the kit.
ConceptZ carbon Fiber OE-style front fender flares – Offered in exposed carbon fiber that matches the production weave, they provide extra coverage for wider wheels and a more aggressive appearance.
ConceptZ rear spoiler – The ideal accessory for enhancing cornering capability and high-speed stability on the track, this new spoiler matches the GM carbon fiber specification and features an adjustable, downforce-enhancing wicker (also known as a Gurney flap). Use it with Nowicki Autosport’s front splitter and new ConceptZ rockers for the maximum aerodynamic benefit. The rear spoiler and wicker are sold separately.
ConceptZ carbon fiber rockers – Adding high-performance visual distinction, these rich-looking rockers also help generate more downforce at higher speeds. They’re most effective when used with Nowicki Autosport’s C7 carbon fiber front splitter (sold separately). The rockers are available in 3K 2x2 twill and factory GM carbon specifications – and they also fit the Corvette Stingray.
ConceptZ rear brake ducts – Based on the design of the production Z06 brake intake and rear cooling ducts, they add visual distinction with the premium appearance of authentic carbon fiber.
ConceptZ rear quarter intake ducts – Based on the design of the production Z06 ducts, these aerodynamically optimized accessories complement Nowicki Autosports other carbon fiber components. They also fit 2014+ Stingray models, enabling a 50-percent increase in airflow over the Stingray’s ducts.
ConceptZ carbon fiber front fender inserts – They replace the factory “gills” in the Z06 front fenders, enhancing the car’s appearance and complementing additional carbon fiber accessories. The inserts easily replace the original components using the factory fasteners.
