With a 0-60 mph time of 2.95 seconds and a quarter-mile time of just 10.95 seconds, the 2015 Corvette Z06 is anything but slow. Chevy has released all the specs for the latest Corvette Z06, including its starting price that starts at $78,995 for the Z06 Coupe, while the Z06 convertible is priced at $83,995.
The Corvette Z06 is powered by a supercharged 6.2L V8 with 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft. of torque that can be mated to either a seven-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission. It reaches 60 mph in only 2.95 seconds when equipped with the eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission – and achieves it in 3.2 seconds with the seven-speed manual transmission.
A quarter-mile sprint takes just 10.95 seconds with the eight-speed automatic and 11.2 seconds with the seven-speed manual. With both versions, the Corvette Z06 hits 127 mph at the end of the quarter-mile. Chevy also says that the new Z06 is also the fastest production car ever tested at GM’s 2.9-mile Milford Road Course, beating the record set by the Corvette ZR1 by a full second.
“The defining aspect of driving the Z06 is seamless integration of power, technology and aerodynamics,” said Tadge Juechter, Corvette chief engineer. “As a result, the Z06 delivers ferocious acceleration, tenacious handling, and high-speed stability that few cars can match.”
