It appears the new Z06 is going to come in as the heaviest Corvette ever at 3,524 lbs. for the coupe. Compare that with 3,175 lbs. for the 2013 Z06. That’s a difference of 349 lbs.
Here’s a sight to behold – what appears to be the new 2015 Corvette Z06 getting some test time in on a public road.
The guys at SuperVettes are inching closer and closer to unleashing their modified version of the C7 called SV7. Initial images released indicate that the Florida-based team is definitely shooting for a much wider body with their reinterpretation of the new Stingray.
So how does this sound? Chevy: “We’ll give you a few hours to photograph the new 2015 Convertible Corvette Z06 for a chance to win $5,000.” Well, that’s exactly what happened, and a New York-based college student by the name of Dan Wang walked away with the cash and the opportunity of a lifetime.
Well, you can add the first retail model of the 2015 Corvette Z06 to the coveted car collection of motorsports king, Rick Hendrick. The chairman of the Hendrick Automotive Group paid $1 million for the car at the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction in Palm Beach, Florida this past weekend. Not that it really should come as a big surprise: Mr. Hendrick, an avid Corvette enthusiast, also paid $1 million for the first production model of the 2014 Stingray last year at a Barrett-Jackson auction.
