You might have heard that the Detroit economy is on the upswing and so is the North American International Auto Show.
You could say the COBO Center just got a mid-cycle refresh and as you can guess it’s bigger, better and more efficient (sort of) than ever before. But time is short and what you really care about is inside, so what are you waiting for?
This year’s Detroit Auto Show is shaping up to be one of the largest in recent memory in terms of product reveals.
Major debuts include the new Chevy Volt, Nissan Titan, Toyota Tacoma, Cadillac CTS-V, Acura NSX, Honda FCV Concept, Hyundai Sonata Hybrid, Infiniti Q60 concept, Lexus GS-F, Audi Q7, Mercedes GLE and two new products from Buick including a crossover and a convertible. Some other reveals are still a mystery, but we expect to see a huge performance announcement from Ford, including the introduction of the Focus RS to North America, as well as a possible Raptor successor and even a new flagship sports car!
The first time I saw the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06, I couldn’t wait for the day to come when I’d be able to finally drive one.
As the months went by, specifications began to surface. The new Z06 would get a supercharged V8, a choice of transmissions, the most down force ever applied to a street car by Chevrolet and some of the stickiest road-legal tires known to man. My anticipation grew and I began to wonder if there’s any possible way the new Z06 could live up to my expectations? The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray with the Z51 package is so good, how much better could the Z06 really be?
It was finally time to answer these burning questions. I was whisked away to Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch to sample the 2015 Z06 where it belongs; on the track. In a few short laps I had my answers – there is no disappointment in the Z06’s performance and it’s in an entirely different league than the Stingray.
