According to Chevrolet specs, the Coupe and Convertible are 51/49. The Z06 is 53/47.

I got this information from the GM website.

I would think it would be just the opposite...can't imagine what would account for more weight in the front and less in the back on the Z06.

Frabk and Agent Z06 are both correct,

Front 53% Rear 47%

The lighter (by ~18 lbs) Ti exhaust on the Z is part of the reason for the slightly worse weight distribution. Also, the hardtop design due to lack of the long glass hatch is inhererntly slightly lighter on the rear.
