New Chevy Corvette Z06 Goes 0-to-60 in 2.95 Seconds
Yes, you read that correctly: the 2015 Corvette Z06 has clocked in at under 3 seconds in the 0-to-60 time test, making it the fastest car ever sold by GM. On top of that, the beloved sports car completed a quarter-mile sprint in just 10.95 seconds, topping out at a speed of 127 mph. For the safety-conscious among us, the car can also come to a stop from 60 mph in just 99.6 feet, which GM says is the best for any production car it has ever tested.
“The Corvette has long been known as America’s sports car,” said GM executive vice president Mark Reuss. “With the capability of the new Z06 rivaling the best performance cars in the world, we will also be America’s Supercar.”
The Corvette is powerful, fast car any day, and the Z06 is the high-performance model of the Corvette, meaning it’s the best of the best. The Z06 that put up these exhilarating numbers was a coupe equipped with an 8-speed automatic transmission and the Z07 performance package, which nets the car add-ons such as Brembo carbon-ceramic brake rotors and Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires. Under the hood was a supercharged LT4 small-block V-8 engine that boasts an incredible 650 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. With that kind of power, it’s not hard to believe the 2015 Corvette can put up such big (well, little) numbers, but this year’s Corvette is also heavier than past models, making it all the more impressive.
The 2015 Chevrolet Corvette comes in several body styles, with the Z06 being the top of the line. Also available are the Stingray Coupe and Stingray Convertible, each of which comes in a myriad of trims so that speed enthusiasts may customize their Corvette to best suit their tastes and needs. A 6.2-liter V8 DI engine that generates 455 horsepower and produces 460 pound-feet of torque comes standard on all Stingray models.
The 2015 Corvette Z06 will be hitting dealerships in early 2015, but the Stingray models are on lots now. To get a taste of the power and speed offered by these one-of-a-kind cars, visit our Lakewood, NJ Chevrolet dealership and test-drive one today!
