2015 Chevy Corvette Z06 Performance Stats Released

Follow Nelson

The 2015 Chevy Corvette Z06 is coming, and it has already put the supercar world on notice with its 650 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. Now, it claims some very important performance figures as among its feature set, too.

Headlining the new stats released today: 0-60 mph in just 2.95 seconds—when equipped with the 8-speed automatic transmission. We’ve driven this transmission in the standard Stingray, and found it to be a remarkable option--one that can, in some conditions, compete with and even beat Porsche’s PDK dual-clutch system.

If you should opt for the seven-speed manual in the 2015 Z06, however, you’ll ad 0.25 seconds to the 0-60 mph time, bringing it to 3.2 seconds total. That’s just the reality of rowing your own cogs these days.

At the drag strip, the Z06 is good for a 10.95-second run with the automatic, or an 11.2-second trip with the manual, both crossing the traps at 127 mph.

When it’s time to shut it down, the Z06 comes down from 60 mph in just 99.6 feet; in the turns, it can pull 1.2 g lateral acceleration—an improvement of 0.07 g over the previous Corvette best.

The 2015 Chevy Corvette Z06 goes on sale early next year with a base price of $78,995. Keep up with all of the latest Corvette news here.
