The ultimate Chevy pays Jay a visit.
As Leno is keen to point out on several occasions while reviewing the 2015 Corvette Z06, buyers of this phenomenal sports car will enjoy plenty of bang for their buck. Basing at under $80k, the Z06 Coupe is one hell of a performance bargain, but it’s the drop-top variant the Denim Chin is looking at today. Popping the carbon-fiber hood, Leno marvels at the 6.2-liter LT4 V8 unit, which despite its compact frame and low center of gravity is still potent enough to deliver 650 hp and an equal number of pound-feet of torque.
Wearing the Z07 Performance Package (a must-have at $7,995), it comes with added aerodynamic parts and carbon-ceramic brakes, and as you’ll hear sounds like a dream on the road. Just beware, if your foot is as heavy as Leno’s, you’ll attract plenty of attention from the boys in blue.
