Chevrolet has given a big Christmas present to all of the 2015 Corvette Z06 enthusiasts. General Motors announced that the Z06 would be making its debut at the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit next month. However, that wasn't the only information that came with the highly anticipated confirmation. A teaser photo of the Z06 was also leaked! Chevrolet took to Twitter to share the picture just days ago. Now, Corvette enthusiast can put an authentic visual to all of the vehicle's alleged specifications!
Unfortunately, the teaser photo only revealed one wheel of the 2015 Corvette Z06, but it's enough to heighten the level of anticipation even more. The automaker is already boasting that the high-performance vehicle may be "the most track-capable Corvette ever, designed to deliver supercar levels of performance through unique powertrain, chassis and aerodynamic features."
The Corvette Z06 is slated to be the high-end model of the new Corvette stingray line. However, that classification excludes the supercharged/turbocharged models that will also arrive later on down the road. While the automaker remains tight-lipped about the Z06's definitive statistics and specifications, one can only assume that it will garner as much as 600-horsepower from some sort of V-8 engine. It's been rumored that a twin-turbo 4.5 liter will be included. However, the 6.2 liter and 7.0 liter may also be options.

The Detroit Auto Show is scheduled for Jan. 13-26, 2014. According to ABC News, the 2015 Corvette will be included in the automaker's 'Performance Car Line-up' along with the 2014 Corvette Stingray Convertible, Camaro Z/28, and SS sedan.
Chevrolet Senior Vice President Alan Batey expressed his high regard for the automaker's precision and expertise where performance cars are concerned. "No other manufacturer will be able to match the breath of performance cars from Chevrolet," he said in a statement.
