2015 CHEVROLET CORVETTE Z06: Chevrolet’s 2015 Corvette Z06 enters supercar territory with race-proven design, advanced technologies and world-class performance. The Corvette Z06 is the most capable, world-class Corvette model, ever. It’s the first Z06 since 1963 offered in coupe and convertible models. This is the first Corvette Z06 to offer supercharged engine, and thanks to a stronger aluminum frame, a removable roof panel. The heart of the 2015 Corvette Z06 is the all-new LT4 6.2L supercharged V-8 engine, expected to deliver an estimated 625 horsepower and massive 635 lb-ft of torque to the rear-wheel drive. Standard seven-speed manual transmission includes the Active Rev Match feature, or there is an all-new eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission designed to enhance both performance and MPGs. Strap-in tightly, as the Z06 blasts from 0-to-60 mph in 2.95 seconds with the eight-speed automatic and 3.2 secs. with the seven-speed shifter. To balance performance and efficiency, the LT4 leverages the same trio of advanced technologies introduced on the Corvette Stingray: Direct injection, Active Fuel Management, or cylinder deactivation, and continuously variable valve timing. These technologies – combined with the fuel-efficient multi-speed transmissions, aerodynamic design and lightweight construction – help make the new Z06 surprisingly fuel efficient. The 2015 Corvette Z06 with the available Z07 package adds larger winglets to the carbon front splitter, along with an adjustable, see-through center section on the rear spoiler for track use; with this package, the Corvette Z06 delivers the most amount of aerodynamic downforce of any production car that GM has tested.
