This is it! The spectacular 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06.
Looking stunning in an appropriate shade of yellow (the official color of Corvette Racing) the Z06 promises to be the most track-capable Corvette ever with 620 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque!
Exactly how that amount of power will be generated isn’t confirmed but it’s believed Chevy will use a supercharged V8 – the high torque number seems to suggest forced induction.

Either way, the power bump is a significant increase over the factory 455 hp in the Stingray and that torque figure actually puts the new Z06 ahead of the ZR1.
But the Z06 is far more than just a horsepower upgrade. Notable design elements featured in the leaked photos show a massive carbon fiber rear spoiler, while perhaps more dramatic is the carbon fiber front splitter that integrates into the front fenders, pushing air over the front wheels to improve downforce.
The front angle of the Z06 also reveals large air intakes, likely used to cool what are no doubt up-sized brakes.
