2015 Corvette Z06 reportedly armed with the 8-Speed Automatic Transmission was spotted testing on the Nurburgring.

We were pretty excited to hear that Chevrolet was testing the Corvette Z06 on the Nurburgring but after the seeing the yellow Corvette Z06 with the Z07 Performance Package had crashed, our hopes were dashed for a flying lap.
