The Top 10 Debuts of the 2014 Detroit Auto Show
Chevrolet Corvette Z06
The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is by far the fastest and most competent base Corvette in history. So for the last year or so, the question on everybody’s lips is, “How much more amazing will the new Z06 be?” As it turns out, the C7-based Z06 is pretty freaking amazing. The bulging hood conceals a supercharged, direct injected 6.2L V8 projected to pump out at least 625 horsepower and 635 lb.-ft of torque. Power reaches the rear wheels through either a 7-speed manual transmission or a brand new, lightning-fast-shifting 8-speed automatic. And in case the regular Z06 isn’t enough, you can order it with the Z07 package that bundles (barely) street legal tires, carbon-ceramic brakes and even more extreme and functional aero appendages. Be afraid, Supercar Establishment. Be very afraid.
