Chevrolet has shown off the ultimate Corvette to the masses at Detroit's motor show. The 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 carries on the tradition of being an out-and-out performance supercar which is brimming with technology. The Z06 is claimed to be the most track-capable of all the Corvettes and while its cornering prowess is untested, you can be sure that it's going to be blisteringly fast in a straight line too. Think of this then as the hardcore and ultimate version of the current generation of Chevrolet Corvette.
