Corvette enthusiasts took notice when Chevrolet said the Z06 would be the most performance-ready Corvette of all time. That’s quite a claim, after all. It’s a claim that definitely motivated customers, though, and now the first new Corvette Z06 models are on their way to owners this very week. Soon, you’ll see these beautiful new ‘Vettes zooming past you on the highway—unless you are in one yourself.
“It has been an incredible opportunity to work on Chevy’s most capable model,” said Jeff Lamarche, plant manager of General Motors’ Bowling Green Assembly plant, “It truly is an amazing car, and we’re thrilled to get them into the hands of our eager customers.”
The Z06 gets no less than 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft. of torque from its all-new LT4 engine. Come see us here at Wiesner of Huntsville to learn more about the all-new Z06, to check out the remaining 2014 Corvettes in inventory, and to talk to our friendly staff about all things Chevrolet!
A few months back, the 2015 Corvette Z06 was revealed as the bowtie’s most track-capable Corvette ever. Much of that power comes from the muscle car’s all-new LT4 engine, a 6.2L V8, which easily eclipses the numbers of its predecessor, the LS7. The LT4, in fact, churns out 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque, incredible numbers for a production vehicle. It’s the most powerful engine ever put on the roads by Chevrolet.
“The LT4 Small Block sets a new benchmark for power and torque at GM,” said Steve Kiefer, vice president, GM Powertrain Engineering. “The engine also puts the new Corvette Z06 on par with the most powerful supercars offered in America, while delivering performance with impeccable manners that make it suitable for daily driving.”
The LT4 accomplishes all that with a remarkable sense of efficiency as well; it’s barely any larger than the Corvette Stingray’s LT1 engine, despite its much higher capability. The 650-Horsepower Z06, therefore, features one of the smallest and lightest engines in the exclusive supercar segment. Come by Wiesner of Huntsville to see the Z06 and the rest of the Corvette lineup today!
