Chevy’s new C7 is extreme, and for the first time, maybe a little too much:

Chevy made the reveal not too long ago – the new C7 Z06 is definitely supercharged, with a 620 HP V8. The Z06 will (as usual) get a few more go-fast bits that the 460 HP base Corvette won’t.

Still, all of these numbers are far separated from the average roadcar, and the extra bodywork on the Z06 makes it appear more the boy racer. When even the base Corvette gets a dry-sump lubrication system, the extra $40K for a Z06 starts to seem less and less palatable.
