Chevy z06 2015
2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06
The Z06 we photographed was fully loaded with the Z07 package, Stage 3
carbon aero trim kit, and optional carbon-kablooey interior. As you can
see, there’s a Z06 for, well, if not exactly everyone, then a wider swath
of humanity’s more impatient drivers, all of whom will be swamped by
admirers at parties. Prepare for the eager smiles of your audience to droop
slightly when you say you bought the automatic, as up to 70 percent of Z06
buyers are expected to do. This is a natural, instinctual disappointment,
conditioned by the expectation that real sports cars have sticks, mounting
evidence to the contrary notwithstanding.
We drove both the manual and the automatic Z06 and feel that the stick,
with its notably soft and seamless clutch takeup, is still the best choice.
Rev matching sounds like a hateful automation of the heel-and-toe skill
until you get used to it. Then you wonder why all manuals don’t have it.
Or just turn it off. Or use it to learn proper rev matching and then turn
Please pause here for an important message about tires. If you’ve
followed our preview coverage, you already know that there are now a lot of
Z06s to choose from. There are coupe and convertible body styles. There are
two transmissions, a seven-speed manual with automatic rev matching and an
eight-speed automatic. And there are three trim levels, dozens of options,
and three separate aero packages. Then there’s the mega Z07 Performance
package that further weaponizes the car with carbon-ceramic brakes, a
carbon-fiber aero package, a slightly revised suspension tune, and
different tires. The Z07’s run-flat Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 summer
almost-slicks replace the base run-flat Michelin Pilot Super Sports and
are, to borrow from Mark Twain, the difference between the lightning bug
and the lightning.
Back to the test numbers: Um, holy crap. Riding a Z06 through the first
four gears feels like putting a saddle on Superman, though the Z06 is 200
pounds heavier than the old ZR1. Obviously, there’s a squidge more power,
but this is down to the race tires and the fact that today’s automatics
are often faster than manuals in a
straight line. We didn’t even use launch control, a simple flat-foot drop
in full auto mode being all that was needed to produce these fireworks from
the test equipment.
A line that includes a 650-hp thunder wagon with the sophistication and
poise of the world’s best sports cars. There, we said it. The Z06 must be
ranked among the world’s best. You know that we here at Car and Driver
are not idle flatterers, our job being to find the faults for you in haste,
before you have to live with them at leisure over 72 months of payments.
However, the Z06 completely fulfills its mission to be a super Corvette. It
is an accessible American fantasy intended to inject joy and fascination
and, let’s face it, a healthy dose of awe into the driving experience,
such that there’s not much left to shout about except details.
Details such as a 60-mph nuking of three seconds flat, set by a Z06
equipped with the Z07 Performance package and an automatic. This car tore
the quarter-mile a new one at 11.1 seconds at 127 mph, scorched the skidpad
with 1.19 g’s of grip, and stopped from 70 in an astonishing 128 feet,
the latter two figures setting C/D records for a production car. We also
tested a slightly less potent manual-trans Z06 [see bottom of page 2].

1985 C4 Corvette-Kart vs. 2014 Lingenfelter C7! - Roadkill Ep. 35
On this episode of Roadkill, we hack the entire body off a C4 Corvette,
cage it, and call it a race car! Freiburger and Finnegan fulfill a dream
that began four-plus years ago when they first wrote the "Vette Hack"
article for HOT ROD magazine, slicing 900 pounds of ugly fiberglass off of
a 1985 Corvette to prove that it would handle better in the autocross. Less
weight means more acceleration, better cornering, and better stopping. The
idea is proven once again here as the guys add a 350-horsepower rat-rod engine,
rebuild the trans, remove more weight, and make it rigid, safe, and stylish
with a full rollcage. Next, they head into a shootout with a 2014 Corvette
upgraded by Lingenfelter Performance Engineering with an Edelbrock blower,
Kooks headers, and Corsa Exhaust for a
wicked-sounding 640 horsepower. And then, of
course, there's the off-road mayhem. The Vette Kart rocks!

2014 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta vs 2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7 vs 2013 Porsche 911 C4S! Head 2 Head Ep 42
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Carlos Lago and Randy Pobst restage our
annual Best Driver's Car competition with this year's winning Porsche 911
Carrera 4S plus two contenders that missed the initial dance, the all-new
Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and the explosive, exotic Ferrari F12
Berlinetta. The Ferrari is the most powerful car we've ever taken around
Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca with its ferocious 6.3-liter 731 horsepower V-12. The
Corvette comes packing the latest version of GM's venerable small block, a
6.2-liter cam-in-block V-8 that kicks out 460 hp and 465 pound-feet of
torque. The Porsche and its relatively tiny 3.8-liter flat-6 might seem out
gunned, but remember that for the last two years the 911 has beaten back
every BDC challenger we've thrown at it. Does the Corvette have what it
takes to dethrone the 911? Does the wailing Ferrari? Watch and find out!

2015 Chevy Corvette Z06 Convertible: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2015 Chevy Corvette Z06 Convertible made its
official debut at the New York Auto show just last night with an LT4 6.2L
supercharged V-8 engine expected to deliver at least 625 horsepower and 635 lb-ft of
torque. This is the first Z06 convertible that's been offered since way
back in 1963.
The supercharged LT4 comes with a seven-speed manual transmission with
Active Rev Match and has an available 8L90 eight-speed paddle-shift
automatic transmission. The seven-speed manual features rev-matching for
upshifts and downshifts and a new dual-mass flywheel and dual-disc clutch
improve shift quality and feel through lower inertia.
