Pricing has been released for the new 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 lineup that will arrive in January. The new Corvette Z06 Coupe will base at $78,995 while the Corvette Z06 Convertible will open at $83,995. Both variants are power by the same supercharged 6.2-liter LT4 V8 engine that makes a stout 650 horsepower - the most of any GM production model ever - and 650 lb-ft of torque. Like the naturally aspirated 6.2-liter LT1 V8 in the standard Corvette Stingray, the more potent LT4 uses the same cylinder deactivation and continuously variable valve timing technology to enhance efficiency and is mated to a 7-speed manual or optional 8-speed automatic gearbox.

The new Corvette Z06 will be available in 1LZ, 2LZ and 3LZ trim levels that will allow buyers select touches that range from leather upholstery and competition-style sport seats to carbon fiber trim and aero elements as well as navigation and the Performance Data Recorder. All versions will come standard with the latest Magnetic Selective Ride Control dampers and an electronic limited-slip differential plus Performance Traction Management and Launch Control when the car is toggled into its "Track" setting using the Drive Mode Selector.

Chevy will offer two major option groups for the 2015 Corvette Z06 Coupe and Convertible. The $2,995 Carbon Fiber Ground Effects package improves high-speed downforce by adding a functional carbon fiber front splitter, carbon fiber side sills and a larger rear spoiler. Buyers who desire the most track-capable version of the Z06 can move on to the Z07 Performance Package. This $7,995 go-even-faster upgrade includes adjustable front/rear aerodynamic elements for the Carbon Fiber Ground Effects splitter and spoiler, ultra-grippy Michelin Pilot Super Sport Cup tires and Brembo carbon ceramic-matrix brake rotors for ultimate in sure, fade-free stopping power.
