|Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Yellow|
Chevrolet on Tuesday launched the 625 bhp , supercharged new Corvette Z06 at the Detroit International Motor show . This Corvette model will keep things fresh for GM , until the much awaited ZR1 comes out later this year . The official pricing and other details have not been released, as of now
The new Z06 will be powered by a 6.2 liter , supercharged V8 and is expected to churn out 860Nm of torque . The standard Z06 comes with a seven speed manual gear box . But the high performance , Eight speed automatic-paddle shift transmission is available as an optional , and claims to provide better fuel economy figures . The 8-speed Auto-transmission seems to be a better bet , as it provides the best of both worlds. For Track day , the paddles, that are integrated with the Steering wheels can be used for manual shifts and the transmission can be easily switched to full automatic mode for the best cruising experience.

GM claims that the new Z06 provides better Steering feel , handling and traction , much of which is possible due to the smart electronic limited-slip differential (eLSD) which now comes as standard .
