DETROIT – The all-new 2015 Corvette Z06 is the most powerful production car ever from General Motors and one of a few production cars available in the United States that delivers more than 600 horsepower.
The Z06’s LT4 supercharged 6.2L V-8 engine is SAE-certified at 650 horsepower (485 kW) at 6,400 rpm and 650 lb-ft of torque (881 Nm) at 3,600 rpm.
“The LT4 Small Block sets a new benchmark for power and torque at GM,” said Steve Kiefer, vice president, GM Powertrain Engineering. “The engine also puts the new Corvette Z06 on par with the most powerful supercars offered in America, while delivering performance with impeccable manners that make it suitable for daily driving.”

The Authorized Biography
Blue is a very popular color on first-generation Camaros, and for good reason – it looks fantastic! We are currently working on three different blue Camaros in the V8 Speed & Resto Shop. The '69 in the foreground is Jet Stream Blue, the '69 on the lift is in Lemans blue, and the '67 in the background is a custom mix. We might have the Camaro blues, but we dig it!
The 1955 Chevy gasser "Mr. Chevy" has finally been reunited with it's restored hauler and they are both ready for action! The vintage '55 race car is sitting on the actual '55 Chevy hauler that used to carry it to the races back in the day, and until recently, they have not been seen in this formation since 1976. Look for a full video feature on the car and hauler coming to V8TV soon. The car remains true to it's last-raced form in '76, and the hauler was recently restored by it's owner, with bodywork and paint handled in by the V8 Speed & Resto Shop.
