Chevrolet Shows Off New Z06 Concept Parts for the Corvette Stingray at SEMA

The figures for the soon-to-be-on-the-road-and-track 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 are astounding.

Like going from 0 to 60 in 2.95 seconds with the new optional eight-speed automatic transmission and 3.2 seconds with the standard seven-speed manual.

Like covering the quarter-mile in 10.95 seconds with the automatic and 11.2 seconds with the manual.

But Chevrolet Performance is ready to gear it up a notch or two further for “ordinary” Stingray owners, with several aero, chassis, and suspension concept parts from the Z06 on display at the SEMA show in Las Vegas.

Over the last decade automakers have used ‘Ring lap times as a means to define the performance of their latest creations. Back in 2011 Corvette test driver Jim Mero lapped the Nordschleife (“North Course”) in 7:19.63 in a C6 ZR1. But what will the new 2015 Z06’s lap time be?

I will never get tired of hearing the exhaust note of a 2015 Corvette Z06 on a track. The fact that it’s tracking the Nurburgring is the icing on the cake.

More of the 2015 Corvette Z06 at the Nurburgring. The original poster of this video claims the car is equipped with an F1 Gearbox but it’s most likely the new 8-Speed Automatic as has been previously claimed.

With all the attention given to the outstanding C7 Corvette these days, the C5 seems to have taken a back seat in the public’s eye.

But not everyone has given up on the fifth generation 1997-2004 Corvette.

Take the owner of this C5 over in Greece, for example, who apparently had all the money and desire to create the lightest version of his car that is humanly possible, hiring Carbon Fiber Customs to create all new body panels out of carbon fiber.
