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.
