Mary publicly declared she loves her Camaro SS to bits. A 6.2-liter LS3 small-block V8 and over 400 HP at one’s right foot is a recipe for fun. Truth be told, it’s somewhat hard to imagine the chief exec of General Motors hooning the Camaro’s rear, pulling 11s or getting into a drag race from traffic light to traffic light.
In an interview from late 2014, Mary Barra told the media that she plans to acquire a Cadillac SRX. If that actually happened, it’s mum’s guess, but we’re happy to tell you that the GM CEO’s garage will see the addition of a Chevrolet Corvette Z06. Not joking.
A worker from the Corvette factory in Bowling Green, Kentucky, sent the photographs featured below to CorvetteBlogger.com. The 650 horsepower brute is a convertible model. Probably en route to Mary as we speak, the 2015 Corvette Z06 is equipped with the 8-speed automatic and a Stage 1 Aero Package. In a sea of ominous black, the only contrasting hue is the bright yellow paint applied to the brake calipers.
When Mary Barra took the reigns of General Motors in January 2014, guess what Chevrolet nameplate debuted at then’s edition of the Detroit Auto Show. It seems like Mary’s first big automotive show as the helmswoman of GM also gave her the urge to put an order on Chevrolet’s most performance-oriented car. On an ending note, we’d love to see Mary challenge the Z06-driving blonde to a quarter mile drag race.
