Today, Chevy revealed the price of the new 2015 Corvette Stingray Z06 with its 650 hp engine, and it’s still well below $100,000 —but not as much as before.
Chevy says the base Z06 for 2015 will start at $78,995 including destination charges. The convertible version for the wealthy and confused will start at $83,995.
The major options: a $2,995 Carbon Fiber Ground Effects package for extra doses of downforce and the Z07 Performance Package — namely Michelin Pilot Super Sport Cup tires, adjustable aero bits and carbon ceramic brakes — runs $7,995.
A full-boat Z06 will edge toward $100,000, but with the new, highly competent Stingray chassis, the modern interior and tech like the Performance Data Recorder, you can still make the argument a new Vette Z06 is a performance bargain. Just a tip to those whose significant others might need convincing.
