2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 to debut in Detroit - report

 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 to debut in Detroit - report
The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Z51 20.6.2013 [20th Jun, 2013] [20th Jun, 2013]

Could have up to 600 bhp (447 kW)

The North American International Auto Show is six months away but a new report is indicating the 2015 Corvette Z06 could debut in Detroit.

Citing a reliable source, Jalopnik says the Corvette Z06 and C7.R race car will debut together at an upcoming auto show. The website goes on to speculate that both models will debut in the Motor City.

Little is known about the Z06 but previous reports have indicated it could keep its naturally-aspirated 7.0-liter V8 engine. While the current model produces 505 bhp (377 kW), rumors suggest the new Z06 could have up to 600 bhp (447 kW) which would make it 38 bhp (24 kW) less powerful than the outgoing ZR1. If these numbers pan out, the model could easily accelerate from 0-60 mph in less than 3.7 seconds.

First C6 was 400hp. New C7 is 455hp. +14% hp. I dunno, but I don't see a ZO6 getting 600hp. More like 575hp (+14%). ZR1 might get 700hp. Or 727hp(14%)! Most likely not :P

Looking forward to a projected price of around £90-100k which will make the 991 GT3 and GT2 look like overpriced lashings of German arrogance.

As an european, can't wait to see the new performance variants of the new Corvette... Real drivers car, RWD, manual transmission, not overly complicated and overegeneered, and still as fast as the top performance cars on track
