Chevrolet has released the final output numbers for the 2015 Corvette Z06 supercar. As you already know, the U.S.-based supercar will go on sale in the fourth quarter of this year and was officially revealed at the 2014 NAIAS.
“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.”

Back in January, at the official launch of the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06, the U.S. officials told us that the new supercar will offer “at least” 625 HP and 816 Nm peak of torque. Now, we know for sure that the all-new V8 6.2 liter LT4 supercharged unit which features a 1.7 liter Eaton supercharger can deliver 650 horsepower at 6.400 rpm and 880 Nm of torque at 3.600 rpm.
The engine resources of the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 are put to the ground via a six speed manual transmission or via an 8 speed paddle shift automatic gearbox.
