Chevrolet wowed the automotive world when it unveiled the 2015 Z06 in Detroit last January, but it turns out the brand was only getting started.
Starting in the upcoming model year, the company’s most performance-oriented car ever will also be offered as an open-air model. Just like its hardtop sibling the supercharged 6.2-liter V8 will deliver “at least” 625 hp and 635 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels. It will also launch from 0-60 MPH in 3.5 seconds.
“Only a handful of convertibles in the world bring more than 600 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque. Even fewer can match the advanced technologies, aerodynamic design, and visceral driving experience of the Z06 Convertible,” product development boss Mark Reuss said.
The is the first time Chevrolet has offered a convertible version of its higher-performing Corvette nameplate. At the end of the C6 life cycle, the brand did offer the limited edition 427, which is a convertible and uses the same 7.0-liter engine, but it isn’t nearly as performance focused as the Z06.
As close to an auto-industry crystal ball as any single page on the internet can be, we've launched a new Future Cars section dedicated to reporting on the latest in what's coming next.
There's an old belief that concept cars never make it to production. On the contrary, they almost always do; they just often change enough over time, evolving significantly from wild design studies to more practical people movers. The new AutoGuide Future Cars pages will let you track the development of your favorite model or keep tabs on what new an exciting cars are coming down the pipe.
From early rumors to spy photos our Future Cars pages will follow the development of highly-anticipated new vehicles until they reach the market sometimes years from now. We aim to give you the straight facts and plenty of enticing rumors on exactly what we do know about these cars, along with photo galleries of concept cars and, of course, video previews of the near-production vehicles before all the hard specs have been confirmed.
Keep your eye on the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, where we'll see plenty of exotics including the McLaren 650S and Koenigsegg One:1. Also expect to see other new cars like the Lexus NX, Audi TT, BMW X4 and the Alfa Romeo 4C Spider. Coverage starts on March 4, so be sure to stop by.
