Those lucky individuals impatiently awaiting the arrival of their 2015 Corvette Z06 will be delighted to hear Chevrolet officially begun to ship the first examples of the 650 horsepower supercar today, just in time for the start of the Christmas season.
The first run of Corvette Z06s will all be coupes equipped with the seven-speed manual transmission. The convertibles will follow in the next month or two and eventually the eight-speed automatic models. Chevrolet says it has already received 5,600 orders for the car, and that’s just for manual Z06 coupes. Automatic Corvettes have historically sold in greater numbers, meaning the waiting list for the Z06 may be even longer than the standard C7 Stingray’s.
