A convertible version of the Corvette Z06 will also be offered, costing upwards of $83,995.
Based on current exchange rates, that's approximately £48k and £51k respectively – but, if personally imported into the UK, expect the coupé to set you back around £68k and the convertible £72k.
Bauer Millett, a specialist UK importer of several American manufacturers, will also be offering the Z06 to customers in 2015. Exact pricing has yet to be confirmed but is expected to be in the region of £80k.
The Z06 features a supercharged 6.2-litre LT4 V8, producing 650bhp and 650lb ft. Modern engine features include direct injection, cylinder deactivation and variable valve timing.
As well as additional power, the Z06 benefits from improved aerodynamics, flared arches, wider tyres and six-piston front brake calipers.
Several upgrade options will also be offered, including a carbonfibre aerodynamic package, competition sport seats and a carbonfibre roof panel for the coupé.
Other highlights for the Z06 include magnetic ride control, launch control, an electronically controlled limited-slip differential and a variety of drive modes. Many of these options, including a heads-up display, are shared with the standard C7.
Chevrolet has also announced that 2015 model year Corvette C7s will feature a new paddle-shifted eight-speed automatic transmission, which also available in the Z06.
In the standard 460bhp C7 the new transmission cuts 0.1sec off the previous six-speed automatic's 0-60mph time of 3.8sec. Economy is also up, by 3.5 per cent, with the C7 now reputed to average 24mpg.
