Thanks to a friend, we have the latest version of the 2015 Corvette Order Guide which now includes all the ordering and package information about the Z06 (except the price!). One of the most interesting specifications we’ve been waiting on is the curb weight of the new super car and now we know. The 2015 Corvette Z06 Coupe will come in at 3,524 lbs while the Z06 Convertible comes in at 3,582 lbs.
It’s not nearly as challenging to build a high-powered car if you don’t have to worry about gas mileage.
But the engineers at Chevrolet do, thanks to government mandates, so they are buckling down and taking it a step further for the upcoming supercharged Corvette Z06, according to a story from Automotive News.
The good news is police found a red 2003 Corvette that was stolen in Moses Lake, Washington last Thursday morning.
The bad news is by that time, the alleged thief had crashed the car through a fence and into the back yard of a house in the 8800 block of Hillcrest Drive in Moses Lake.
What Top Gear magazine once called the fastest police car in America apparently will remain the property of the Wake County Sheriff’s Office in Raleigh, N.C., for the foreseeable future.
The sheriff’s office has been using the black 2007 Corvette Z06 for the past five years after seizing it from a drug dealer convicted of felony schedule II possession.
The new 650-horsepower, 6.2-liter V8 monster engine that will power the upcoming 2015 Corvette Z06 will be assembled in two locations.
But only the engines that are put together at the Corvette assembly plant in Bowling Green, Ky., will be eligible for the build-your-own program, according to a report on Edmunds.com.
Production is ready to gear up, literally, for the slick new eight-speed transmission that will power some 2015 Corvettes, including the highly anticipated Z06.
GM expects to start building the high-tech automatic gearbox by the end of July, according to Ray Wood, president of United Auto Workers Local 14.
If you’ve ever wondered what the inside of a C5 Corvette door looks like, here’s your chance.
This black Z06 was involved in a two-car collision in Canada a couple weeks ago. The crash sent the Corvette through the backyard of a Nepean home, leaving the front half of the car under the fence like a dog trying to dig his way under.
