Corvette Z06

Chevrolet is working on a serious machine for 2015. The 2015 Corvette Z06 is still in its initial stages of development. As of Jan. 2014, it has been out on the track once – and it broke the track record set by the ZR1. As of this time, Chevrolet has not released any specifications including weight, performance and price, though the auto manufacturer says it has a minimum of 625 horsepower, so you’ll have to keep your eye out on our blog or visit Classic Chevrolet to learn more as the information becomes available.

The suspension is the only thing that is not new for this vehicle. The 2015 Z06 has bigger brakes, wheels, tires and steel rotors. It also features an electronic differential and an expanded performance envelope.

It also has a different look including a new grille texture that allows more air to help cool the engine with the grille in place and ductwork on the sides to help cool the front brakes. The Z06 also has a new custom hood for more airflow to the engine.

Because the downforce in the front has to be counteracted, the rear features large spoilers that are manually adjustable so that the driver can adjust them for the driving experience he or she likes best.

The engine is a supercharged LT4. The supercharger is smaller but has more force. The engine also has variable valve timing, direct injection and cylinder deactivation. This is the first time that a supercharger has been paired with cylinder deactivation.

Something has to get all that power to the rear wheels – Chevrolet will give you a choice of a seven-speed manual transmission or an eight-speed automatic transmission specifically designed for the 2015 Z06.

The Z06 debuted at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show and it was there that Tadge Juechter, Corvette’s chief engineer, stated that the Z06 had “at least” 625 horsepower. Autoblog also got some great pictures of the new Z06 and it looks fast just sitting there.

Keep your eye on this space or visit Classic Chevrolet for more information about the 2015 Corvette Z06 as it becomes available. If you feel the need for speed and don’t want to wait until the 2015 is available, stop by the dealership to test drive the Stingray.
