Engine & Performance

The essence of the 2015 Corvette Z06 is under the hood. There you will find an all new LT4, 6.2 Liter supercharged V8 capable of generating 625 horsepower.

The engine is paired with a 7 speed manual transmission featuring Active Rev Match. This "super car" will accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.4 seconds while reaching a top speed of 200 mph.

Exterior

In a somewhat odd move, Chevrolet Corvette Z06 designers began with the tires and worked their way up. Following the decision to go with wider wheels to accommodate the vehicles high standard of performance, they had to enlarge the front and rear fenders which created a more intimidating stance.

A splitter can be found at the front wheel wells. While in the rear, there is a spoiler on top and the taillights have been spaced an extra few inches apart.

The rear view looks suspiciously like the current Camaro, and may be best described as "a Camaro on steroids" with its quad exhaust tips prominently visible on the center bottom.

However, there is no mistaking the Corvette emblem on the rear façade.

Interior

Two types of seats are available. The first is a GT version and the other is the "Competition Sport" option. Both manufactured using magnesium to make it lightweight and durable.

The rest of the interior is made from fine Napa leather, micro suede, carbon fiber and aluminum. The round gauge instrument display is set off by a unique flat bottomed steering wheel.
