Officially unveiled at the ongoing Detroit Motor Show 2014, the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is an absolutely incredible supercar more than capable of taking the right to its European rivals. While we’ll have to wait a few months for the first performance tests of it, the following clip shows the new 625 hp American supercar idling and it sounds absolutely beastly!
When compared to the yellow one which also was revealed, this grey 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 also features more traditional silver wheels and is also equipped with what’s believed to be the optional Z07 package.
Under the hood, the Corvette Z06 gets a new, LT4 supercharged 6.2 litre V8 engine which delivers at least 625 horsepower and a staggering 861 Nm of torque. The aluminum frame carries over from the Corvette Stingray and will be shared, pretty much as it is, with the Corvette Racing C7.R. It is a stiffer design which allows for a removable carbon fiber roof panel to be added.
The Corvette Z06 gets two gearbox options. The first is the standard seven-speed manual transmission comes equipped with Active Rev Match. The automatic transmission is an all-new 8L90 eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission designed to enhance both performance and efficiency. Performance data and pricing will be announced closer to the start of production.
