At the 2014 Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto, attendees got up
close to the 2015 Corvette Z06 - most track-capable Corvette in the brand's
history. On the opening day of the show Corvette Exterior Design Manager
Kirk Bennion got to meet Corvette enthusiasts and talked to Chevrolet
Canada Youtube host Shantelle.
Chevrolet introduced the most track-capable Corvette in the brand's history
-- the 2015 Corvette Z06. It stretches the performance envelope for
Corvette with unprecedented levels of aerodynamic downforce, at least 625
horsepower from an
all-new supercharged engine, and an all-new, high-performance eight-speed
automatic transmission -- all building on the advanced driver technologies
introduced on the Corvette Stingray.
"The new Z06 delivers levels of performance, technology and design that
rival the most exotic supercars in the world," said Mark Reuss, president,
General Motors North America. "And the Z06 leverages the engineering
expertise of GM, offering the choice of two world-class transmissions,
supercar performance without supercar fuel consumption and technologies
that make it easier to fully enjoy the incredible experience of driving
The 2015 model is the first Corvette Z06 to offer a supercharged engine, an
automatic transmission and, thanks to a stronger aluminum frame, a
removable roof panel. The new, supercharged 6.2L engine is expected to
deliver at least 625 horsepower (466 kW), and can
be matched with either a seven-speed manual or an all-new, high-performance
eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters for manual control.
The aluminum frame carries over from the Corvette Stingray and will be used
essentially unchanged for the Corvette Racing C7.R.
Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 Canadian Debut | 2014 Canadian International Auto Show
The new-for-2014 Camaro
Z/28 made its Canadian debut at the 2014 Canadian International Auto Show
in Toronto. Auto Show attendees also got to experience the Chevrolet Camaro Challenge racing
simulator for fun and a chance to win prizes.
The 2014 Camaro Z/28 is
the most track-capable model in its history, building on the legacy of the
original SCCA Trans Am-series contender introduced in 1967. While the new
Camaro Z/28 is not
intended to compete in a specific race series, it is solely focused on
track capability. In fact, its unique exterior is designed like a race car
to produce downforce that presses the tires against the track for greater
grip -- up to 1.08 g in cornering acceleration -- and faster lap times.
The aerodynamically optimized design helped the Camaro Z/28 log a 7:37 lap on
Germany's legendary Nürburgring road course -- four seconds faster than the Camaro ZL1, and faster than published times for the Porsche
911 Carrera S and the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640.
Additional contributors to the car's track performance included greater
stopping power -- the Z/28 features Brembo carbon ceramic brakes capable of
1.5 g in deceleration, and consistent brake feel, lap after lap -- and
reduced curb weight. The naturally aspirated Z/28 weighs 300 pounds less
than the supercharged Camaro ZL1, with changes ranging
from lightweight wheels to thinner rear-window glass. In fact, 100 percent
of the un-sprung mass (suspension, wheels, tires and brake system) has been
changed from the Camaro
SS, dramatically enhancing the balance and overall driving feel of the
CIAS'12 Special year for Chevrolet Camaro's at Auto Shows across Canada
Chevrolet features The Camaro at the Auto Shows across
Canada in a special year for the iconic muscle car. It's the 45th
Anniversary of the Camaro also in a year Chevrolet
produced the all-new Zl1 - the highest performance Camaro ever built.
ABOUT THE Camaro:
The Chevrolet Camaro is
an automobile manufactured by General Motors under the Chevrolet brand,
classified as a pony car and some versions also as a muscle car. It
went on sale on September 29, 1966, for the 1967 model year and was
designed as a competing model to the Ford Mustang. The car shared its platform
and major components with the Pontiac Firebird, also introduced for 1967.
Four distinct generations of the Camaro were developed before
production ended in 2002. The nameplate was revived again on a concept car
that evolved into the fifth-generation Camaro; production started on
March 16, 2009.
