Chevrolet, amid a lot of speculation and leaks, finally revealed the 2015 Corvette z06 at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show. The top feature of the Corvette is the V8 6.2 litre LT4 supercharged engine equipped with a 1.7 litre Eaton supercharger and an intercooler. This gives the automobile a power of atleast 625 bhp, a huge performance breakthrough, and 635 lb-ft torque. Other features include a choice between a 7 speed manual gearbox or an 8 speed automatic transmission. In the automatic, one finds four gear sets and five clutches yet occupying the same amount of space as the Stingray but being 8 pounds lighter, therefore being up to 5% more efficient. Opting for the Z07 package gets the Z06 coming with Michelin Pilot Super Sport Cup tires, see through centre section on the rear spoiler and carbon ceramic – matrix brakes. The massive steel brake rotors (14.6 inches diameter in front and 14.4 inches in rear) are clamped by six piston front and four piston rear callipers.

In wheels, the vehicle sports 19 inch front alloy wheels surrounded by P285/ 30ZR19 tires and 20 inch rear wheels surrounded by 335/ 25ZR19 tires. While other vehicles use aluminium, this automobile goes down in history to become the first Corvette Z06 to have a removable roof panel made of carbon fibre. This increases the structural rigidity of the vehicle by 60% from 20% without the panel. The downforce of the vehicle is increased by winglets and other aerodynamic appendages such as a substantial front splitter and an enlarged hood vent.
In the automobile, one finds a comfortable cabin, complete with stitched soft touch materials and buyers can go for full Napa leather with micro suede and carbon fiber accents. The vehicle also sports a unique flat bottomed steering wheel and an optional Performance Data recorder.
