Now that the embargo is lifted on reviews for the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06, all of the buff books’ articles are out. Also out is Motor Trend’s latest episode of Ignition, with Carlos Lago driving the new Z06 Corvette Road Atlanta and putting it through their standard performance testing. The numbers are amazing.
The manual-equipped Z06 is the slowest of the two transmission options, but still managed to get the Z06 from zero-to-60 in 3.2 seconds and sprints through the 1/4 mile in 11.3 seconds. You might be thinking, “The Challenger Hellcat is faster.” But that’s on a NHRA-prepped surface. On a non-prepped surface, Motor Trend was able to get the Hellcat from 0-60 in 3.7 seconds and the 1/4 mile in 11.7 seconds.
What is even more impressive is the cornering forces, braking performance, and the simple fact that this car can be ordered as either a coupe (with a removable roof panel) or a convertible. We don’t want to spoil the video for you, but it’s fast. Make sure you have you speakers turned up for this one!
We can’t wait to drive this thing!
