Corvette Z06

I think 650bhp should be enough, what do you think?

It’s official: the Corvette Z06 wants to tear your face off. Chevrolet has today revealed that the new supercharged Vette produces a nice, round, terrifying 650bhp.

That 650bhp is matched by a monster 650lb ft of torque, too – 457lb ft of which is produced just off idle.

“Torque is the pulling power of an engine,” explains Jordan Lee, Chevy’s small block chief engineer, “and the LT4’s abundance of it at every rpm in the engine’s speed range helps the 2015 Corvette Z06 accelerate quicker and respond nearly instantaneously.”
