The 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Enters Supercar Territory

Chevrolet enters supercar territory with the most track-capable Corvette in the brand’s history, the 2015 Corvette Z06. It pushes the performance boundaries for Corvette with unprecedented levels of aerodynamic downforce, an all-new supercharged engine with at least 625 horsepower and an all-new, high-performance eight-speed automatic transmission, while bringing additional capabilities to the seven-speed manual transmission.

Bowman ChevyThe Corvette Z06 leverages the same driving technologies from the Corvette Stingray and also features the same aluminum frame, which will be produced in-house at General Motors’ Bowling Green assembly plant. The stiffness of the stronger frame also allows the Z06 to be offered with a removable roof panel for the first time. The advanced driver technologies and race-proven design all contribute to increased capabilities and world-class performance.

An available track-focused Z07 performance package adds unique components for true aerodynamic downforce, Michelin Pilot Super Sport Cup tires for enhanced grip and Brembo carbon ceramic-matrix brake rotors that improve braking performance and contribute to greater handling.

During its first outing at the track, the 2015 Corvette Z06 recorded some of the fastest lap times ever for a Corvette, surpassing even the ZR1.

Production for the Corvette Z06 will begin at the end of 2014 and will begin shipping to customers in early 2015.
