Yesterday when we posted the dyno graph from Vengeance Racing which showed the new C7 Corvette Z06 generating 585 rear wheel horsepower and 617 lb-ft of torque, we speculated that more dyno tests would be needed to see if Chevrolet was
sandbagging conservatively estimating the power numbers for the new supercharged super car.
We now have a new video from the guys at High Tech Corvette which features a black 2015 Corvette Z06 on a Mustang 1100 dynometer and those results were equally impressive.
If you take into account a standard 15% drivetrain powerloss, the dyno numbers from Vengeance Racing would translate into 688 hp and 725 lb-ft at the crank. So how did the Corvette Z06 do on the dyno in Texas?
High Tech Corvette reports that the Black Z06 produced 572 horsepower and 589 lb-ft of torque at the rear wheels. They claim their dyno was calibrated to include the weight of the car as well as the current weather conditions, and the Corvette Z06’s LT4 engine was already warmed up to simulate actual driving conditions.
Running the math on HTC’s dyno results by taking into account the 15% drivetrain powerloss, the Corvette Z06 produced 658 horsepower and 677 lb-ft of torque at the crank. Not quite as high as the Vengeance Racing dyno, but more than the 650 hp/650 lb-ft torque advertised by Chevrolet.
Check out the video below and crank up those speakers to hear the glorious sound of a 2015 Corvette Z06 on the dyno:
