The winning bidder will receive the first retail production vehicle. The all-new 2015 Corvette Z06 was created to elevate the driving experience to the next level. This next generation of the Corvette Z06 was engineered to be lightweight and rigid with an aluminum space frame, carbon fiber hood and removable carbon fiber roof panel. It was also designed to be powerful, with a supercharged 6.2 Liter aluminum V8 engine delivering at least 625hp and 635ft/lbs of torque. The 2015 Corvette Z06 is one of the industry's only supercars to achieve over 600hp and offer a choice of two transmissions - a 7-speed manual or an all-new paddle-shift 8-speed automatic. The driver-centric Z06 elevates the experience even further with technologies like a Driver Mode Selector, which allows for customization of vehicle performance dynamics with the turn of a knob. And Corvette owners can relive their drives on or off the track with the available industry-exclusive Performance Data Recorder, which records high-definition video with telemetry overlays on playback. One hundred percent of the winning bid will benefit Karmanos Cancer Institute.
