2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Price Starts at $78,995 UPDATED: Hard Performance and Acceleration Numbers for 0 to 60 mph and Quarter-Mile

UPDATE: The 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 has the unbelievable performance we were hoping for.  Acceleration from 0 to 60 mph passes in blink at 2.95 seconds.

Chevrolet is officially unveiling the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 in Detroit at the North American International Auto Show at 10 am EST on Monday.  But, thanks to an oopsy by Left Lane News, a sharp eye by car guy Jarrod and the diligence of Jalopnik, we know it will look like this…   Stunning, no?  And, it will have an asphalt rippling 620 horse and 650 pound-feet of torque.  Oh, goodness.  To put that in perspective, the C6...

2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 Takes on the Nurburgring [Udpated: Price]

After ten hours and 1,000 miles of Nurburgring track testing, a 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 driven by Adam Dean lapped the Nurburgring Nordschleife in an astonishingly quick 7:37.47.  Yeah, 7:37.47… That’s quick.  And, it was in the wet.  The track was slick, and by the end of the run, it was raining.  I know what you’re thinking… “Isn’t a Chevy Camaro Z28 a muscle car?  And, aren’t muscle cars...
