Default C7 Corvette Z06: 650HP/650TQ

Quote:
General Motors has released official output figures for its 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06, revealing that the sports car is even more powerful than suggested by the initial estimates.

The Z06's LT4 supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine is now SAE-certified at 650 horsepower at 6,400 rpm and 650 lb-ft of torque at 3,600 rpm. Breaking down the specs further, the powerplant produces 457 lb-ft of twist just off idle and gets up to 625 lb-ft by only 2,800 rpm.

GM gladly points out that the V12 engine in the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta produces 28 percent less torque, despite providing 12 percent more horsepower, and its peak twist is not reached until 6,000 rpm.

"The LT4 maintains 90 percent of its peak torque, or 592 lb-ft, all the way from 2,500 to 5,400 rpm," the company said in a statement.

The Z06 specs also beat the Porsche 911 Turbo S' peak power levels by 90 horsepower and 134 lb-ft of torque.

"It's also worth mentioning that the LT4's supercar performance numbers are achieved with an engine that is nearly the same size as the very compact LT1 engine introduced in the 2014 Corvette Stingray," said GM's chief engineer for small-block engines, Jordan Lee. "The power density of the LT4 makes it one of the smallest and lightest 650-hp engines in the industry."

More power than the C6 ZR1. Expected to be well under $100K. Good grief.

Thumbs up

And will they even bother with a ZR1 edition in the coming months?

Good gawd that is so much power.

GM does a good job of new models upping the ante, thereby watering down the used market for those patient enough to wait.

Not in the coming months. Remember the C6 ZR1 debut came four years after the introduction of the C6 in 2005, which itself is really a C5.5. The ZR1 was basically a send off for Bob Lutz, who asked the engineers "If you can do this (Z06) for $70k, what can you do for $100k."

Next ZR1 is a long way off, if ever.

Wow that is insanely good value, but not sure how responsive with the supercharger

I don't think there will be a ZR-1 for this generation though

I'm pretty sure this car will be around 100k, maybe a little north of that. Regardless, what an amazing thing GM has done.

No give me a C7 Grand Sport model, with the C7 Z06 widebody and aero, with less aggressive suspension settings and for less $$$ and I'd be all over it

ZR1 is dead for now...Z06 is replacing it from what I last read...The Z06 will pretty much have performance packages that build on top of the base Z06. So essentially you can build the equivalent of a ZR1 and if you don't need ceramic brakes etc...you can do without that stuff and still get into a vehicle with the same power for less...I am guessing this car will cost less than $100k and you'll probably be able to option it up over $100k.

Correct me if i'm wrong but the previous Z06 was naturally aspirated and the ZR1 was forced. Since this new Z06 is supercharged they should actually just call it the ZR1 IMO. I don't see the point of later coming out with a ZR1 that is also supercharged.

Having a few friends on the inside makes me even more excited about this car. There are "features" in this beast they haven't talked about yet. This will be even more of a monster than the Zr1 with better track manors.

Nope. It is positive displacement and a big engine there will be no compromises in performance due to throttle latency.


C6 Z06 was better than the zr1 because it is lighter and had conventioal suspension and 505 hp is "enough" anyways.

Good thing you put "enough" in quotes, otherwise I would think you meant it.

Just think of the ROI on $100k if invested properly over 5 years vs a 0%-1% loan. Oh, wait, you can't.

You can probably get at least a 3% return on $100k without even trying over 5 years which after taxes and all that would net you $14k.

A 1% loan would be about $2500 over 60 mos.

Profit after 5 years by investing instead of paying cash on a depreciating asset? $11.5k if invested properly.

IMHO? Buy a $30k car for cash and invest the other $70k. You can thank me later.
