Corvette Product Manager Harlan Charles broke the news on his personal facebook page Thursday night announcing that the 2015 Corvette Z06 will have 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft torque.
That’s 25 more horsepower and 25 more lb-ft of torque than was previously estimated. Chevrolet has always said those numbers with a plus (+) after them so we’re glad to see the 650 hp threshold met.
At 650 hp, this will make the Corvette Z06 the most powerful vehicle that GM has ever sold. 2015 can’t come soon enough.
Here was Harlan’s short and simple announcement:
A post on the Corvette Forum confirms that these are indeed the SAE certified performance numbers for the LT4.
We’re sure the Corvette Team will be following up with an official announcement soon. Stay tuned for details!
