Just for the record, it's the same power plant that's in the Corvette Z06, although it's tuned down slightly to 640 horsepower and 630 pound-feet of torque.

Power goes to the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission. An electronic limited-slip differential helps out when the road gets curvy.
