Chevrolet just spilled the beans on the 2015 Corvette Z06, which apparently will come with 620 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque.
The company hasn’t officially released information on its latest hardcore sports car, but a Jalopnik reader spotted that running a “Google search” on the term “2015 Corvette Z06 supercar reveal” brings up a URL directly from the brand citing those numbers.
With the official debut set to take place next week, more details are sure to slip out.
Unfortunately, the link shown in the screen shot here directs to a blank page. Leaked images reportedly showing the LT4 V8 show a supercharger and Chevrolet’s “oopsy daisy” seems to back that up. Regardless, 620 hp is a healthy increase over the old Z06 with 505 hp and a thick margin above the current Stingray’s naturally aspirated 455-hp LT1 V8. Perhaps most impressively, that also means the new Z06 has more torque than the ZR1 halo ‘Vette.
