New Chevrolet Corvette Z06 – The Fastest Corvette
The new Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is, without a doubt, the most sophisticated sports car in the GM portfolio. The car was declared faster than any other Corvette model ever produced.
Chevrolet Corvette Z06 was presented in a new improved version, at the Auto Show in Detroit. The American automotive legend was transposed into the most sophisticated sports car produced by General Motors and its details speak for themselves. Not for nothing this car has been declared the fastest Corvette model.
The beast is a true statement of power of those from Chevrolet. Inside, the Z06 offers two versions of seats: GT, which offers more comfort and Competition Sport, which is oriented to better support the body in demanding conditions. The materials used for the interior design are high quality, from Nappa leather and aluminum to carbon fiber.
Equipped with a 6.2 liter LT4 V8 engine that develops 625 horsepower, a maximum torque of 861 Nm, the new Corvette Z06 benefits from additional 100 hp, compared to the previous version. The transmission is available in two versions: 8-speed automatic or 7-speed manual. The first one has four sets of stages and five clutches, but occupies the same space as the 6-speed automatic on the Stingray model, being 4 kg lighter and up to 5% more efficient due to reduced friction.
Its speed is given by the design improvements that make it more aerodynamic: front spoiler, side skirts, front fenders extension, trunk aileron. The new Z06 has 19-inch front alloy wheels and 20-inch rear alloy wheels and is the first Corvette Z06 with a removable carbon fiber roof, which leads to an increased rigidity of the car.
The model will hit the market in early 2015, so we can start the countdown.
