The Corvette is an American icon and Chevy’s 2015 iteration has finally been unveiled after lots of buzz. The Z06 has been one of the most capable sports cars around and this 2015 version now sports a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that pushes out at least 625 hp via an 8-speed paddle shift automatic (or 7-speed manual) transmission. It uses the same driving technologies that the Corvette Stingray has and also features the same aluminum frame that’s now being produced in-house at General Motors’ Bowling Green, OH assembly plant.
There’s also a track-focused Z07 package available that adds unique exterior components for addition aerodynamic downforce, Michelin Pilot Super Sport Cup tires and Brembo carbon ceramic-matrix brake rotors. During its first big outing at the track, the Z06 recorded some of the fastest lap times ever for a Corvette, even surpassing the ZR1.
