New 2015 Corvette Z06 detailed in Detroit

Supercharged V8 under the hood of a track day missile

Jalopnik has offered up some details and a nice picture of the 2015 Chevrolet Z06. After months of speculating, it’s nice to see the actual car. The Z06 has a LT4 V8 engine that is supercharged and produces around 625hp and 635 pound-feet of torque. GM has offered no performance numbers on the car.

GM did say that the new Z06 was faster around its test track than the old ZR1. The car is tipper to come in three trim levels with the top of the line called the Z07. Each version has different aero bits apparently including an adjustable portion of the rear wing to improve aerodynamics.

The car has a removable roof panel and has carbon ceramic brakes. The new Z06 is said to be 60% stiffer than the last version. The 2015 Z06 will come with an 8-speed auto or manual transmission. The auto isn’t a dual clutch unit like you might expect. Pricing and other details are unknown.

How To Ruin A Corvette Stingray, By SEMA And The KISS Frontman

Nov 4 2014 8:45pm CST | Source: Jalopnik

I think the show cars from SEMA only really work when they go all-in. The ridiculous shaggin' wagon and sword-filled concepts from Scion? You're doing it right! The ultra-conservative paint jobs on the Chevrolet cars ? You're doing it wrong! Read mor ...

Nov 4 2014 7:01pm CST | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Motorsports, SEMA Show, Coupe, Chevrolet, Racing, Autoblog Black Chevy introduced the fourth generation of its COPO Camaro at the SEMA show today; another limited run muscle car that should set drag racing fans' mouths to salivating. Just 69 examples of the 2015 COPO will be built (the same as the first three runs of the car), with customers able to choose between 350-, 396 -and 427-cubic-inch natural ...

SEMA: Chevrolet gives us a Sonic for show and one for go

Nov 4 2014 3:57pm CST | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Aftermarket, SEMA Show, Hatchback, Chevrolet Amongst the treasure trove of tuning that Chevrolet has brought to SEMA this year, this pair of Sonic hatches is perhaps the most accessible. With one car tweaked for show and the other go, both halves of the SEMA ethos are nicely represented. The Sonic Performance Concept has been fitted with the company's Performance Stage Kit, meaning cold-air induction for the 1.4 ...

2015 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible: First Test Numbers with GM’s In-House Octo-cog Automatic

Nov 4 2014 3:28pm CST | Source: Car and Driver

No sports car should have chrome wheels. The 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray convertible you see here does. It also has an automatic transmission, GM’s new in-house designed and -built eight-speed unit, which replaces last year’s six-cog piece carried over from the C6 Corvette. The new transmission has two things going for it: First, it has more speeds in an era where more is more, and second, ordering it doesn’t require thos ...

Official: First Corvette Museum sinkhole victim restored [w/video]

Nov 4 2014 3:00pm CST | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Coupe, Performance, Videos, Chevrolet When a sinkhole at the National Corvette Museum opened up in Bowling Green, KY and gobbled up eight important examples of the American sports car in February, videos almost made it look like the hole picked the perfect spot to do the most damage to as many vehicles as possible. None of the cars made it away unharmed, but some were luckier than others. The Skydome sinkhole quickly became a national sensation, and Chevrolet sma ...

Love Guns: Jimmie Johnson’s SEMA Corvette Is More KISS-tastic than Paul Stanley’s

Nov 4 2014 2:52pm CST | Source: Car and Driver

It’s not SEMA without eleventy-jillion styles of rolling stock, booths stocked with scantily-clad ladies who may or may not have other gigs in the Las Vegas “hospitality” industry, and, of course, good old Yankee V-8 power. The last item is, after all, the fundament upon which the show was founded in 1967. An era before VTEC. Hell, it was an era before CVCC. Thusly, at the intersection of the Chevy small-block, NASCAR, and good ol’ fashioned ...

Jimmie Johnson's '71 Corvette Has A New Stingray V8 And It's So Badass

Just when I think General Motors' SEMA offerings will be total duds this year, they go and totally redeem themselves with a very badass 1971 Corvette powered by a brand new LT1 crate motor from a modern Corvette Stingray . It's for Jimmie Johnson, a man who knows more than a little bi ...
