2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Priced from $78,995

GM has announced pricing for the range-topping 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06, with the entry ticket for the most powerful and technologically advanced Corvette ever being set at $78,995. That’s the price for the coupe version, as the convertible starts from $83,995. Both prices include destination charges.

If the standard package which includes a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine producing 650 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque (881 Nm), a performance aero kit and numerous chassis tweaks isn’t enough, GM also offers optional packages that enhance the Corvette Z06 both aesthetically and in terms of performance.

The Carbon Fiber Ground Effects package, priced at $2,995, adds a functional carbon fiber front splitter, carbon fiber rocker panels and a larger rear spoiler for increased stability at high speeds. The Z07 Performance Package, available for $7,995, adds Brembo carbon ceramic-matrix brake rotors, adjustable front and rear aerodynamic components to the Carbon Fiber Ground Effects package and Michelin Pilot Super Sport Cup tires for better grip.

The 2015 Corvette Z06 is offered in three trims: 1LZ, 2LZ and 3LZ. Optional features include the Premium Package with leather-wrapped interior, 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) as well as tintcoat exterior colors, several available wheel finishes and several available brake caliper colors.
