For those who feel like this seems a bit earlier than planned, you're correct. When the new Corvette Z06 was announced GM said deliveries would take place in the spring of 2015. Well, things moved ahead of schedule and now the latest American supercar has hit the streets.
A quick refresher on the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06: It's powered by a supercharged 6.2-liter LT4 V-8 engine rated at 650 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels through either a seven-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission. Opting for the Z07 Performance package adds things like Brembo carbon ceramic brake rotors and Micheline Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.
Performance figures for the new 2015 Corvette Z06 or nothing short of mind boggling. It'll hit 60 mph from a standstill in 2.95 seconds with the automatic transmission, and 3.2 seconds with the manual transmission. The quarter mile can be covered in just 10.95 seconds at 127 mph with the auto (11.2 seconds with the manual), and it takes only 99.6 feet to stop from 60 mph. Note: All those figures are when equipped with the optional Z07 Performance package.
Priced from $78,995 in coupe form and $83,995 for the convertible, the new 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is nothing short of a performance bargain. In fact, it just might end up being the definition of a bargain supercar.
