Convertible model gets $90,595 base price

If you’re looking for a supercar-beating performance bargain, General Motors is offering up the newest Z06 with a starting price of $85,095 for the fixed roof model.

Powered by a 6.2-litre supercharged V8 making a stellar 650 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque, the new Z06 will rocket up to 60 mph (96 kph) in 2.95 seconds when gears are managed by the new eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission. If you desire a more connected approach, you can get to 60 mph in 3.2 seconds with the seven-speed manual.

On top of it all, the Z06 will also be offered as a convertible with the same transmission options starting at $90,595. Both models incur a $1,800 destination charge.

The new Corvette Z06 is expected to go on sale in early 2015 in Canada.
