New corvette Z06 is simply rediculous

Internet-forum debates are about to get a lot more real. GM released the first factory performance figures for the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06, and the car appears ready to invalidate every import-supercar argument ever made against America's sports car.

You already know that it's blown LT4 makes 650-hp and 650 lb-ft. That potent engine, when paired with the new 8-speed paddle-shifted automatic, delivers a 0–60 time of 2.95 seconds. The quarter mile is vaporized in 10.95 seconds at 127 mph. That's with the available Z07 package, which includes the max-downforce aero kit, Brembo carbon-ceramics, and Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 rubber. It also pulls 1.2 g on the skidbad. The previous best for any Vette was 1.13 g.

You prefer three pedals? With the seven-speed stick, the Z06 races to 60 in 3.2 seconds and hits the quarter in 11.2, again at 127 mph. The top speed has not been anounced, but 200+ mph is a foregone conclusion at this point. 

With the available carbon-ceramic brakes, the Z06 drops from 60 mph to zero in 99.6 feet. The car will demolish road circuits—it's already a second faster around GM's Milford Road Course than the old ZR1. 

Here's the best part: the starting price for the Corvette Z06 coupe is $78,995. Want to humiliate Ferraris in a convertible? The ragtop Z06 opens at $83,995.

For the sake of comparison, the Ferrari 458 Speciale starts at around $300K, the McLAren 650S starts at $265K, the Porsche 911 GT3 starts at $130K, the 911 Turbo S starts at $182K, the Lamborghini Huracan starts at $237K, and the GT-R NISMO starts at $150,000. Figure a loaded Z06 coupe with all the go-fast stuff should come in right around $100K.

The games begin in Q2 2015, when customer deliveries kick off and bench racing gives way to the real thing.

Well gm just released the final factory specs of the new c7 z06 corvette ant it looks like it will be an absolute monster! This thing looks like it is going to give the Nissan gtr a run for its money. The 2.95 second 0-60mph time is absolutely astonishing from a rear drive 650hp sports car.

If only it didn't look like someone drove a Ferrari 599 through a Sonic fanfic enthusiast's Myspace page.

True, but i would not doubt, that that new corvette will be very nice aswell.

But the RB26DETT engine sound is just amazing.

You sure? I've owned a Z06 for years and it's still in one piece.

Still would rather have a McClaren, Ferrari or a Pagani. It just doesn't fill me full of confidence when I see a car with incredible performance really cheap. To me it seems they either skimped on something, or it just will not turn corners at all. I may be wrong, but I'd rather get a super car from the European masters instead.

Take your rice rockets and shove it! Also, that's not the truth, it's your opinion.

 

Seriously though. The Nissan GTR is the only car that's worth the money. Personally, I've never been a fan of four/six cylinder engines.

Tiny cars are awesome... Especially if you drive somewhere with really tight roads... The Mitsubishi Mirage (2013) hatchback is a close competition though... The only thing that I didn't like about the Mirage was its power steering... Too soft for my tastes... The steering felt floaty even at low speeds...

I really like their new design direction. The new corvettes look like they've just taken the early 2000s corvette body and sprinkled a lot of the old 72 style stingrays design on top^^
