How a century sprint timing of 3 seconds and a quarter-mile run of 10.95 seconds sound to you? Yup, that's how fast GM's new Z06 Corvette is when paired with its eight-speed automatic. The seven-speed manual will do the above two runs in a slightly slower 3.3 seconds and 11.2 seconds respectively. Still not too shabby I guess!
It shouldn't be when you have a supercharged 6.2-litre V8 pushing 650bhp and 880Nm of torque. GM says the Z06 is also very good at stopping with them claiming it having 'the best braking performance of any production car it has ever tested'. It comes to a stop from 96km/h in 30.36 meters if you are wondering.
So it goes and stop very well. How about turning then? The Z06 is claimed to be able to achieve 1.2g in the corners and again, GM says it is 'its fastest production car ever tested at its own Milford Road Course, beating the record set by the Corvette ZR1 by one whole second'.
