The Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is the most powerful and technologically advanced model in the iconic car's 62-year history. The Z06 rejoins the Corvette lineup in 2015 with a strong aluminum frame, an aero package designed to produce performance-enhancing downforce and an all-new, supercharged 6.2L V-8 engine producing 659 horsepower (485 kW) and 881 Nm of torque. The all-new Corvette Z06 is the most powerful production car ever from General Motors and one of a few production cars available in the U.S. that delivers more than 600 horsepower. With the available Z07 package, the supercar accelerates from 0-100 in 3.4* seconds with the eight-speed automatic and in 3.8* seconds with the seven-speed manual transmission.
