It’s not an auto show without some sort of highly anticipated vehicle leaking before its time, essentially spoiling the surprise and excitement that the model had going for it. The latest machine to fall victim to this folly is the 2015 Corvette Z06, but damn, does it look mean.
Also leaked were the power figures of the 2015 Z06 earlier this week, rating the race car for the road at a stratospheric 620 horsepower and ground shaking 650 pounds-feet of torque. Visually, you could fool us into thinking this is actually the Corvette Racing C7.R we’re looking at, as see about as much aerodynamic work as any given GT race car. So while the power figures are impressive, we’re sure that the downforce and cornering abilities on the 2015 Corvette Z06 will be on that same level of extreme performance.
Lastly, it appears as if the interior of the photographed Z06 showcases an automatic gearbox over the Stingray’s seven-speed manual. Is it a dual-clutch unit? Or is it an eight-speed? We’ll have to wait until Monday, January 13 for the official details to be released. In the meantime, enjoy the eye candy.
