Chevy has taken the wraps off the “most track-capable Corvette in the brand’s history,” the 2015 Corvette Z06. Chevy says that the new Corvette Z06 “stretches the performance envelope for Corvette with unprecedented levels of aerodynamic downforce” and of course its supercharged 625-hp engine helps as well.

“The new Z06 delivers levels of performance, technology and design that rival the most exotic supercars in the world,” said Mark Reuss, president, General Motors North America. “And the Z06 leverages the engineering expertise of GM, offering the choice of two world-class transmissions, supercar performance without supercar fuel consumption and technologies that make it easier to fully enjoy the incredible experience of driving it.”

The 2015 model is the first Corvette Z06 to offer a supercharged engine, an automatic transmission and a removable roof panel. The 201 Corvette Z06 is powered by the all-new LT4 6.2L supercharged V-8 engine, expected to deliver an estimated 625 horsepower and 635 lb-ft of torque. It can be matched to either a seven-speed manual or an all-new eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters.

A track-focused Z07 Performance Package is available and adds Michelin Pilot Super Sport Cup tires for enhanced grip, and Brembo carbon ceramic-matrix brake rotors that improve braking performance and contribute to greater handling through reduced unsprung weight. Although development testing is ongoing, Chevy says that the Z07 package has already recorded some of the fastest lap times ever for a Corvette, surpassing even the ZR1.
