Breaking Views – The new 2015 Chevy Corvette Z06 Convertible
From GM Media
The most powerful convertible ever produced by Chevrolet, the new 2015 Corvette Z06 Convertible offers at least 625 hp and can go 0-60 in under 3.5 seconds. It is the first Z06 convertible offerred by Chevrolet since 1963.
“Until recently it was not possible to create a lightweight, open-roof structure strong enough to cope with the braking, cornering, and acceleration of Corvette’s top performance models,” said Corvette chief engineer Tadge Juechter. “The frame for the Z06 convertible leverages advancements in computer-aided engineering, metallurgy, and manufacturing techniques – many of which were not available just five years ago.”
The Corvette Z06 Convertible represents the culmination of more than four years developing an all-new, all-aluminum structure for the seventh generation Corvette. That structure, built at General Motors’ Bowling Green Assembly plant, was designed to the specifications of the Corvette Stingray, Corvette Z06 and the Corvette Racing C7.R.
