First thing’s first: we know the 2015 Corvette Z06 in bone-stock form makes 585 horsepower and 617 lb-ft of torque at the wheels. Why do we know this? Vengeance Racing just got their hands on a brand-new Z06. They are the first tuner we know of to do so, and they immediately got the car on the dyno once they got it back to the shop. But it’s what they did before they drove the car off the lot that has a lot of people going crazy on Facebook right now.
If you’re an American worried about the price tag of the new Z06, it could be a lot worse, like $42,000 worse.
Corvette Forum member WELEPRO took home a brand new Z06, and he’s already given us video of the first start-up and a glowing drive-home report.
Aside from winning the Heisman Trophy, eradicating world hunger and discovering the cure for cancer, there are few things more victorious than seeing your 2015 Corvette Z06 getting delivered to the dealership so that it can head to your garage.
