2015 Z06 Corvette seems to be the most waiting for car since the concept has been released by Chevrolet. It's wide and low, yellow and black, and absolutely menacing to look at, even if it doesn't have an engine under its hood. Or an interior, for that matter. The 2015 Corvette Z06 sitting here in a stark white Michigan photo studio is just a styling buck, a body with wheels and tires designed to give us the visual impression the Z06 will make when it hits Chevy showrooms in late 2014.

Release Date and Price
Meanwhile some rumors told that 2015 Z06 Corvette release date will be in late this year. There is no purpose why you should be eventually missed when it comes to the high-class and relaxation that comes with Chevrolet vehicles. This car is made in a way that they will provide you even more than you predicted. We promise that we will update soon after Chevrolet announces 2015 Corvette Z06 release date.
Exterior and Interior
The aluminum structure of the standard Stingray is used in the Z06 and will be essentially unchanged for C7.R duty. Chevy is claiming that the 2015 Z06 Corvette and C7.R were developed together. When equipped with the Z07 performance package, Chevy claims that the new Z06 has been recording lap times that are faster than their times for the outgoing Corvette ZR1.
Some of that on-track speed comes from the Z06's optional aero packages. While the standard car's bodywork has already been modified for more speed, downforce and stability, buyers have the option to upgrade to a carbon fiber aero package with a new front splitter, rocker panels and a larger rear spoiler. If that's not enough, the Z07 performance package comes with larger winglets for the the front splitter and an adjustable center section for the rear spoiler that allows the driver to look through it.
Chevy's new supercharged LT4 (a 6.2-liter V8) will debut in the 2015 Z06. The preliminary — and likely conservative — output estimate is 625 horsepower and 635 pound-feet of torque from the new mill.
Two transmissions are available: a carryover seven-speed manual from the Stingray and a new GM-designed eight-speed automatic. According to Juechter there isn't a dual-clutch transmission that packages in the Corvette's rear-mounted transaxle space and can handle the LT4's torque. Plus, he says, the torque converter improves drivability when in four-cylinder mode, which allows more aggressive cylinder deactivation.
Probably the biggest news with the 2015 Z06 Corvette is its price. Final pricing isn't announced yet, but GM insiders insist that its cost will be comparable to the outgoing Z06, which started at $76,595.
