(CNN) – Chevy announced on Friday that the new Corvette Z06 will pack a whopping 650 horsepower.
That puts the storied American muscle car in some distinguished company, power-wise.
The new model will now be on par with certain models of Ferrari, Lamborghini and MacLaren.
The crowd-pleasing announcement comes at a sensitive time for GM. The company is facing public embarrassment and hefty fines over a fatal ignition switch problem.
Pricing for the super car has yet to be announced, but fans have got to be drooling over the specs.
