    The new 2015 Z06 will be among the fastest vehicles on the road, ever. Today Chevrolet announced the new 650-horsepower Corvette flagship equipped with an 8-speed automatic will accelerate from zero to 60-MPH in only 2.95 seconds.

If purchased with a 7-speed manual, the car will be slightly slower, making the dash to 60 in 3.2-seconds.


Quarter mile times are quick; just 10.95 seconds for the automatic and 11.2 seconds with the manual.


Braking performance is also exceptional. 60-MPH to zero only takes 99.6-feet. Lateral acceleration tops out at 1.2G.


These figures were achieved with the optional Z07 performance package, Brembo carbon ceramic brake rotors, and Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.


The 2015 Corvette Z06 starts at a bargain $78,995 and goes on sale in early 2015.



“The Corvette has long been known as America’s sports car,” said Mark Reuss, General Motors’ executive vice president, Global Product Development. “With the capability of the new Z06 rivaling the best performance cars in the world, we will also be America’s Supercar.”
