2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Convertible was just introduced. Like its coupe sibling it delivers 625 horsepower (466 kW) and 861 Nm (635 lb-ft) of torque, making it the most powerful convertible ever produced by Chevrolet. The car is built on an aluminum structure, which is 20 percent stiffer than the previous. Its curb weight is nearly identical to the Z06 coupe. Both cars share the same chassis tuning, powertrain output, driver technologies and equipment options, including the Z07 Performance Package. The latter adds Brembo carbon-ceramic matrix brakes, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires and adjustable front- and rear-aerodynamic components.

Corvette Z06 Convertible features an electronic top that can be lowered remotely via key fob. The top can also open or close on the go, at speeds of up to 30 mph (50 km/h). The thick fabric top is offered in four colors along with sound-absorbing padding and a glass rear window. Behind the seat backs there are dual accent panels in either Carbon Flash-painted or with exposed carbon fiber.

2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is finally and officially here. The car was just revealed at the North American International Auto Show with its full specifications. This is the most track-capable Corvette in the brand’s history which is capable of producing 625 horsepower from a new supercharged engine and is equipped with and new, high-performance eight-speed automatic transmission.

Precisely, the new supercharged 6.2L engine is expected to deliver at least 625 horsepower (466 kW), and can be matched with either a seven-speed manual or a high-performance eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters for manual control. The aluminum frame carries over from the Corvette Stingray and will be used essentially unchanged for the Corvette Racing C7.R.

The interest of how the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 will look like is undoubtedly very high and we are pleased to announce that the first images of the car have leaked. After the unofficial release of the horsepower the car will produce, Chevrolet obviously didn’t manage to keep the total secret of car’s visual appearance before its debut at the North American Auto Show in Detroit.

The rumors state that the Corvette Z06 will be capable of producing 620 horsepower (455 kW) and 650 lb-ft (480 Nm) of torque. This makes almost 200 hp added over the 450 hp and 200 lb-ft over the 450 lb-ft of torque of the base model.

The pictures that were going around the Internet show not only the external appearance of the car – front and back, but also the interior that it will sport.

Romeo Ferraris Supercharged Corvette Z06 - Muscle Cars BlogWe’ve always had a special attraction for performance runner-up vehicles. We are referring to those cars that are included in the “go-fast segment” but have a “Number two” status in their range. One example is the Chevrolet Corvette Z06, which was the king of the ‘Vette range until GM released the ZR-1 model.

It seems like our sympathy for this kind of vehicles is shared by Romeo Ferraris. The Italian tuner has released a complex modification pack that is aimed at placing the Z06 above the factory stock ZR1.

The vehicle’s 7 liter LS7 V8 engine received a Vortex supercharger, an air-to-air aluminum intercooler, a blow-off valve, high-capacity fuel pump and injectors, as well as an ECU remap. The Italian tuning house has also added a custom exhaust. Read more!

Chevrolet to auction first retail Corvette Z06 Carbon at Barrett-Jackson, Palm Beach

DETROIT – The first of 500 retail 2011 Corvette Z06 Carbon Limited Edition coupes will go to the highest bidder at Barrett-Jackson in Palm Beach, Fla., on April 3.

The winning bidder will also be given the unique opportunity to tour GM’s Performance Build Center in Wixom, Mich., home of the hand-built LS7 and LS9 engines found in the Z06 and ZR1 respectively. The winner will also have the opportunity to watch the car going down the line at the famed Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green, Ky.

“The Corvette Z06 Carbon will surely be an instant collectible,” said Jim Campbell, U.S. Vice President, Chevrolet Marketing. “For that reason, we see Barrett-Jackson as the premiere venue to sell the first retail Z06 Carbon.”

The Corvette Z06 Carbon was designed as a tribute to the 50th anniversary of Corvette’s first race in the 24 Hours of LeMans. As such, it continues the technology transfer between the production Corvette and racing.
