2015 Corvette Stingray ZO6 Unveiled at The North American International Auto Show
Last January, Chevrolet unveiled the all-new 2014 Corvette Stingray, a stunning instrument of precision that went on to become the industry’s most awarded car of the year. This January 13 The 2015 Corvette Stingray ZO6 Was Unveiled at The North American International Auto Show, Chevrolet revealed the car that launches the seventh-generation Corvette into supercar territory.
Dominant on legendary race tracks around the world, Corvette was the most-awarded racing nameplate in the American Le Mans Series and a seven-time winner at 24 Hours of Le Mans. The next generation C7.R race car will debut this season in the new TUDOR United SportsCar Championship Series. The C7.R and the 2015 Corvette Z06 share unprecedented levels of engineering and components including chassis architecture, engine technologies and aerodynamic strategies.
The all-new Z06 is the best example yet of the technology transfer between racing and production Corvettes. First, engineers took what they learned on the Corvette Racing C6.R and applied that knowledge to the 2014 Corvette Stingray. Then, using the Stingray as a foundation, the Z06 and C7.R were co-developed to push the envelope of performance on the street and the track.

The 2015 Corvette Stingray Z06 is powered by an LT4 supercharged 6.2L aluminum V8 engine delivering at least 625 horsepower† and 635 lb.-ft. of torque. The engine incorporates a more efficient, more compact next-generation supercharger†, as well as a dry sump oil system, lightweight titanium intake valves and connecting rods for reduced reciprocating mass. And while advanced engine technologies enable supercar performance, Corvette engineers have managed to increase LT4 fuel efficiency by leveraging the same trio of advanced technologies introduced on the Corvette Stingray powertrain: Direct Injection, Active Fuel Management™ and continuously Variable Valve Timing.
