Chevy Teases 2015 Corvette Z06 Ahead of Detroit Auto Show

The new Corvette Stingray is one of the biggest, baddest rides of the year. But that doesn’t mean it won’t get any bigger or badder. For instance, there’s the forthcoming Z06, set to make its first world appearance at the Detroit Auto Show in only a month’s time (January, 2014).

Naturally, Chevy isn’t giving out any details just yet on its more hardcore version of the Corvette, but they do promise that, “It will be the most track-capable Corvette ever.” Does that mean more potent than the ZR1? Perhaps.

At any rate, we expect the new Z06 to put out more than 500 horsepower from a tuned version of the V8 under the hood of the new Stingray. If you recall, the previous Corvette Z06 was fitted with a massive 7.0-liter (427 cubic inch) V8, cranking out 505 horsepower. Considering the current C7 Corvette Stingray makes 460 horses (when you select the optional dual-mode exhaust), output could be even higher.

This runs against previous rumors that Chevrolet was ditching the Z06 naming for the name “Z07.” Those rumors also suggested that the Z07 would have a twin-turbo V8, capable of 600 horsepower. We’ll just have to wait until it hits the stage in Detroit — oh how we will be waiting.
