In a press release issued by Chevrolet today, the official pricing for the new 2015 Corvette Z06 has been announced.
As the most powerful and technologically advanced model in the Corvette’s 62-year history, one would expect the new Z06 to hold a hefty price tag. Surprisingly, the historic model has a suggested retail price of $78,995 while the convertible starts at $83,995. With the base model starting at $53,000, for around $25,000 more, you can get the most impressive Corvette yet.
“The 2015 Corvette Z06’s performance and technical capabilities place it in the elite fraternity of supercars,” said Harlan Charles, Corvette product and marketing manager, in the press release. “Very few cars in the world deliver 650 horsepower, true aerodynamic downforce, carbon fiber and performance technologies such as Magnetic Ride Control, Performance Traction Management and an electronic limited slip differential – and none gives the driver a transmission choice or the choice of a coupe with a removable roof panel or a full-power-top convertible.”
There are, of course, options that can be added to the Z06. For added aerodynamics and downforce, customers can opt for the $2,995 Carbon Fiber Ground Effects package. This package includes a front splitter, rocker panels and a rear spoiler. There is also the Z07 Performance Package that adds Brembo carbon ceramic-matric brake rotors, adjustable front and rear aerodynamic components to the Carbon Fiber Ground Effects package and Michelin Pilot Super Sport Cup tires.
“The Z07 performance package enhances overall performance to make the Corvette Z06 one of the most track-capable cars you can buy off the dealership floor and still drive it to work every day,” said Charles in the press release.
The Z06 will also be offered in the 1LZ, 2LZ and 3LZ trims, which offer a range of features, including:
- Premium Package with leather-wrapped interior
- Aero-enhancing carbon fiber ground effects package
- Performance Data Recorder and navigation
- Competition sport seats offered in leather or sueded microfiber
- Carbon fiber interior trim and carbon fiber convertible tonneau cover inserts
- Visible carbon fiber roof panel (Coupe)
- Tintcoat exterior colors, several available wheel finishes and several available brake caliper colors.
