2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Allegedly Leaks onto Internet Ahead of Debut
There seem to be very few surprises left with modern auto shows. Back in the day, journalists would go to a show, scribble as much down as they could about a new vehicle, and file copy with life-or-death urgency. Today, most of us have pre-released information waiting for us. And as has become tradition, most of it leaks before the auto show. The latest alleged example is the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06, the sportier Corvette that promises upwards of 600 horsepower via a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 engine, allegedly named the LT4. Seen here after they were leaked by another site earlier today, the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 boasts carbon fiber aerodynamic bits throughout its body work. What looks more surprising than its racy looks is what's on the inside. One picture of the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette's interior shows an automatic transmission. Yup, that's a first for the Z06 line, and we're sure it more has something to do with expanding market share for the nearly six-figure Corvette Z06 than anything. No word yet on how many gears it has, but we wouldn't be surprised if it has eight speeds instead of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray's six-speed automatic. Of course, a seven-speed manual should also be available. Gawk at this lovely yellow Vette for as long as you need. We'll have more pictures of it in the carbon fiber and fiber glass as soon as it's officially revealed next week at the Detroit Auto Show. In the meantime, check our our coverage of the 2014 North American International Auto Show here.
