BAY CITY, Mich. - Although the North American Auto Show is still a few months away, it is believed that the 2015 Chevy Corvette Z06 will be unveiled in Detroit. The seventh-generation Corvette was revealed this last January at the Detroit Auto Show, so unveiling the 2015 Corvette Z06 at the same event would make perfect sense. Along with the 2015 Corvette Z06, the Corvette C7.R race car is expected to debut as well.
As for specifications of the 2015 Corvette Z06, not much is known. However, many have speculated that the Corvette will keep the 7.0-liter V8 but that the horsepower will increase to about 600 hp! With that kind of horsepower, the corvette would be able to accelerate from 0-60 mph in less than 3.7 seconds. Now that's fast!
The current 2014 Corvette has a 6.2-liter V8 engine that produces 450 hp and more than 450 lb-ft of torque. It also goes from 0-60 in less than 4 seconds and the EPA highway mileage is around 26 mpg. The decrease in 0-60 time is due to reduced weight and increased performance - the weight will probably decrease even more as the 2015 Corvette is expected to go even faster.
