The 2015 Corvette Z06 is touted by General Motors as the most powerful production car built in the company's history and one of a few production cars available in the United States that delivers more than 600 horsepower.
According to the company, the 1.7L supercharger spins at up to 20,000 rpm - 5,000 rpm more than the supercharger on the Corvette ZR1's engine. The rotors are smaller in diameter, which contributes to their higher-rpm capability - and enables them to produce power-enhancing boost earlier in the rpm band. That boost is achieved more efficiently via a more direct discharge port that creates less turbulence, reducing heat and speeding airflow into the engine.
The 2015 Corvette Z06 will be available for sale in the fourth quarter of 2014.
