The 2015 Corvette Z06 Hits 0-60 In 2.95 Seconds
We all knew the 650 horsepower 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 would be fast. That’s the whole point. Now we know it’s gonna be crazy fast: reaching 60 mph in 2.95 seconds, and it will run a 10.95 second quarter mile. Now that’s fast.
2015 Corvette Z06 Is A Deal At $78,995
These mind-blowing numbers come to us from Hot Rod magazine, who today came out with the most detailed reports on the upcoming Z06’s performance that anyone has seen yet.
There’s a catch here, and it’s a big catch: those crazy numbers are with the new 8-speed automatic. The 7-speed manual-equipped Z06 ONLY does zero to 60 mph in 3.2 seconds and the quarter mile in 11.2 seconds. Just keep in mind thats the same with all the much pricier competition… and you’ll be hard pressed to find another car that even offers a manual.
Hot Rod’s report says that the new Z06 is quicker to 60 mph with that gearbox than a Dodge Viper TA and an Audi R8 V10. It’s not quite as fast as the Nissan GT-R Track Pack to 60 mph but it has a better quarter mile time, and is almost on par with the quarter mile time of the Porsche 911 Turbo.
More importantly, the Z06 is vastly cheaper than all of those cars. The Z06 has always been a giant-slayer, but the new one may just be the best performance bargain around.
