    Only the Z06 has a LS7 V8 Engine

    Inside every Z06 is an LS7 aluminum-block V8. It puts out an SAE-certified (Society of Automotive Engineers) 505 hp and 470 lb.-ft. of torque. Hand-built at the GM Performance Build Center in Wixom, Mich., the LS7 engine contains a litany of racing-derived components, such as an eight-quart dry-sump lubrication system, titanium valves and connecting rods, forged-steel crankshaft with six-bolt main bearings, high-profile cam, and Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC) machined heads for better air/fuel flow. Even with its performance, the engine does not incur a federal government gas-guzzler penalty.

    BTW this is a coupe not a Z06 there fore it has a LS2 engine

    LS2 V8 Engine
    This aluminum-block powerplant, standard in Corvette coupe and convertible, produces 400 horsepower @ 6000 rpm and 400 lb.-ft. of torque @ 4400 rpm. Yet the LS2 6.0L engine achieves a remarkable EPA estimated MPG 18 city, 28 highway with the standard six-speed manual transmission. Even with its performance, the engine does not incur a federal government gas-guzzler penalty.

    @sparky_spank
    Your figures are a bit wrong

    @storm
    Although you got the figures from the official Chevy website but your assumptions are a tad bit off as well.
    This car indeed is the Z06, you can tell that by the bigger fender flairs, the nostril in the front bumper the wheels. Also the biggest give away that it is a Z06 is the little emblam on the left fender right before the wheel in the last picture it says "Z06" if you look closely.

    ^^Here is that badge up close.

    ^^Compare this picture to the last picture sparky posted.

    The reason why you cant tell by looking at the motor that its a LS7 motor is because he has taken the plastic cover off of the engine that goes on either side of the motor. Compare the following two pictures.

    @JnC
    Thanks for pointing that out to me. I was under the assumption that this was just a kitted-out C6. Specially after sparky_spanky pointed ot that it only punped out 423 hp (close to the 6.0L LS2 engine output figures).
