Chevy releases Performance Figures for 2015 Z06 Corvette
Chevrolet released performance specs for the 2015 Corvette Z06 and they are impressive. The LT4 engine produces 650-hp and 650 lb-ft and has an 8 speed paddle shift gearbox. The newly announce 0-60 times of 2.95 seconds puts it up in the class of some major players in the super car world.The quarter mile time is just as impressive running 10.95 seconds at 127mph. This is with the available Z07 package which includes an aero kit, Brembo carbon ceramic brakes, and Special Micelin Pilot Sport tires. The 2015 also pulls 1.2g in the skid pad with this setup.
If you are not a fan of the paddle shift 8 speed you can get the 7 speed gearbox and a clutch peddle. This will drop the 0-60 time to 3.2 seconds and the quarter mile to 11.2 secods at 127 mph.
Pricing for the Z06 coupe starts at around $79,000 and the convertible will start around $84,000.

From an early age my parents used to take me to car shows and a few automotive museums and that is where I got the car bug. Ever since then I have had mainly cars that were more go than show until 2008 when I bought my 2005 Silverado. I started showing the truck and soon after started taking pictures at the shows. In early 2012 I put a call out asking if any sites needed a photographer and here I am, A proud member of the Carshowz family.
