Thanks to Winding Road, we have a brief article below, and a video. Unfortunately the video has background noise, no verbal descriptions, so best to turn the sound off completely. On the plus side, some closer-in interior views than we've seen before.

Multimedia Editor Chris Amos gives us a chance to ogle some of the finer details of the newly announced 2015 Chevorlet Corvette Z06, shown here at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show.

As part of the Z07 option package, the newest track-focused Corvette boasts a stunning carbon fiber aero kit which only hints at the performance potential held within. The heart of the new C7 Corvette Z06 is a supercharged, direct injected 6.2-liter LT4 V8, which is said to generate "at least" 625 horsepower and 635 lb-ft of torque. That twist can be sent to the rear wheels by way of either a seven-speed manual gearbox with a new dual-mass flywheel and dual-disc clutch, or GM's own all-new eight-speed automatic transmission.

On the inside, the new Z06 shares much of the driver-focused cockpit layout of the base Stingray, but new additions like the flat-bottomed steering wheel give the Z06 an even more purposeful look than the already very capable base C7.

What's with the big red battery cable with the Duct Tape running over the top of that pristine engine compartment?

Almost every State has Fire Marshall's requirements for displaying vehicles inside buildings. That was part of my "past life." Remember well, exactly what you noticed, gas caps being completely sealed/tapped (to prevent fumes from escaping -- especially from all cars before 1990), etc., etc.

The close up of the paint almost look like it had some metallic in it.
It does :) It's actually why a lot of the photo's give it a slight brown tinge, which it doesn't have in person.

Whether it's the color being lighter or the flakes being smaller but it's less noticeable than on CG.
