Hint: it won't be called "Z07."
The official reveal of the new Chevrolet Corvette Z06 takes place next Monday. It'll be a wonderful day no doubt, and Chevy has been doing its best to keep the car's official specs a closely guarded secret. Then someone at GM messed up. While the official Z06 reveal website is up and running ahead of Detroit, the meta data managed to leak online yesterday. It revealed the new Z06's output of 620 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque.
Damn impressive, although it didn't say which exact V8 is under the hood. All of the answers will come in just a few more days, but we're saying it now: if you thought the new Corvette Stingray was a mighty impressive piece of raw performance, the new Z06 may just be America's greatest threat to Italian and German street legal track cars. Epic comes to mind. Hat tip "Dark Knight."
