Remember, your Z06 was on a different chassis utilizing lighter weight materials than the regular C6.
From what I read on the forum, there is no official data yet as you said, but the C7 is supposedly 100+ lbs. more than the C6 ZO6. That would place it around 3,246 lbs. This was from a GM executive speaking to someone at the Detroit Car Show.

Current Stablemates:
'12 Porsche 911 GTS Cabriolet (MT); '11 BMW E93 335is (DCT); '08 BMW E60 535xi
Favorite Cars Gone But Not Forgotten:
'09 Corvette ZO6; '04 MB S600; '01 BMW 740iL; '01 Corvette; '90 Nissan 300ZX 2+2; '89 Jeep Grand Wagoneer; '79 BMW 320i; '79 MB 300D; '71 Pontiac Firebird Formula 400; '67 MG Midget
