Earlier this week at the Detroit Auto Show, Chevrolet introduced its all-new 2015 Corvette Z06 in showroom-glorious Velocity Yellow. But that wasn't the only example on the automaker's stand. Opposite the new C7.R racecar sat a completely exposed Z06 – methodically opened to bare all of its detailed mechanicals.

Vehicle cutaway displays offer fascinating insight to the hidden engineering typically buried beneath layers of body panels and glass, so we eagerly snapped and analyzed these pictures of the naked Z06 to share with you. The end result is a high-resolution photo gallery with two dozen images, each carefully captioned to describe the inner workings of Chevrolet's newest supercar. Click through our gallery for a closer look at the new king Corvette's inner workings, including its unique carbon-fiber torque tube, exhaust system and suspension engineering – it's an amazing effort.

      Thank-you Mr. Harley. Only car nuts would love stuff like this.

      I would love to see a 1953 Corvette cutaway parked next to this one. Comparing the engineering and material technology between the two would be educational and highly fascinating.

      My mind is blown by how much car and tech you can get in a base '14 Vette for $55k, and the upcoming Alfa 4C

      LOVED the summaries under each picture. This was great journalism, informative.

      These pictures will come in handy 50 years from now when my great-grandson is rebuilding one of the last great gasoline powered sports cars. By then the fuel-cell will rule and most cars will drive themselves I just hope the joy of driving will still be found with cars like this..

      I saw a Stingray in person for the first time, and the car looked even more stunning.

      I saw one of those for the base model at the Baltimore GP and must have spent a total of 3 hours looking over in detail. They do a great job making them.

      For a car that is intended to showcase the Z06's superiority, why would you put tires on it that are obviously worn out with poor camber settings?

        I was going to comment on the "bald" tires as a joke, but Thom wins!
