There is a new reason to celebrate one of America’s favorite cars. The 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 has just been established as one of the fastest cars on the market – achieving sub-3-second 0-60 performance as well as a sub-11-second quarter-mile time. “The Corvette has long been known as America’s sports car,” stated Mark Reuss, General Motor’s executive vice president of Global Product Development. He now feels that the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette will be “America’s Supercar.”
The new Corvette will be able to accelerate from a rest to 60mph in 2.95 seconds when it is equipped with the eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission. A supercar like this deserves a supercharged engine, so the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 will be the first of its kind to come with an engine that is SAE certified at 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. “The defining aspect of driving the Z06 is seamless integration of power, technology and aerodynamics,” states Tadge Juechter who is a chief engineer for Corvette. “As a result, the Z06 delivers ferocious acceleration, tenacious handling, and high-speed stability that few cars can match.”
This fast car will go on sale in early 2015. The 2015 Corvette Z06 coupe will be priced at $78,995, while the 2015 Corvette Z06 convertible will be priced at $83,995.
