The Year of the Z06

The most track-capable Corvette ever

Things were getting serious at racetracks everywhere as manufacturers had been constantly upping the ante with offerings that were boggling the performance car imagination. The C7 Corvette ticket to the party is the Z06, introduced to the world on January 13, 2014 as a 2015 model.

The 2015 Z06 had a lot in common with the C6 ZR1, last produced in 2013. Both have supercharged engines with horsepower well north of the 600 hp mark but with 650 hp on tap, the 2015 Z06 beats it's older brother by 12 hp.

As with the C6, the first year for the C7 - 2014 - did not have a Z06 in the lineup, giving the product planners and engineering staff time to get it right.

As with the C2, C5 and C6 iterations of the Z06, the C7 version comes with serious street and racetrack credentials. All aspects of the Z06, including the chassis, brakes, drivetrain and aerodynamics got the full performance treatment.

Similar to the C6 Z06, the C7 Z06 features a new "wide body" look which accommodates wider tires both front and rear. The fenders are 2.2 inches wider in the front and 3.15 inches wider at the rear.

On August 22, 2014 GM announced pricing for the 2015 Z06: $78,995 for the coupe and $83,995 for the convertible. This was comparable to $76,575 for the 2013 Z06 and far less than the $112,575 for the 2014 ZR1 which had a similarly supercharged engine.

The exact height difference is not known but was needed to accomodate the supercharger located in the center of the engine. The 2009 thru 2013 ZR1 required a similar hood bulge for its supercharger.

Right: The Z06 hood vent, with updated extractor vanes is larger than found on the C7 Stingray allowing for increased cooling of the higher output engine.

Amongst the many visual cues that identify the C7 Corvette Z06 is a wider, more aggressive front brake vent which offers a "Z06 Supercharged" emblem.

2015 Chevrolet Corvette lineup: (front) Z06 coupe and convertible; (rear) standard coupe and convertible
For 2015, the Chevrolet Corvette lineup consisted of four models: (front) Z06 coupe and convertible; (rear) standard coupe and convertible.

The Z06 is definitely nothing like some of the previous models. Finally starting to get that exotic car image. Would love to take for a test drive. We recently shipped one for a customer, boy was the customer happy to get behind the wheel!
