We now have one of the first videos of the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 running down the quarter mile, and it’s every bit as epic as you’d expect for a 650-horsepower, rear-wheel-drive rocket like the latest Z06. The video comes to us by way of HorsepowerPhotos, and it shows the driver of the Z06 first warming up the tires with a quick burnout and then proceeding to run down the quarter mile.

His time was a reasonable 11.7 seconds at 120.5 mph, which isn’t bad considering this was a manual-equipped car but still a bit off the official times. Chevy’s quotes a time of 11.2 seconds with the manual and an incredible 10.95 seconds with the new eight-speed automatic. Admittedly, there looks to be a lot of wheelspin in this video.
Now that the Z06 is being delivered to eagerly awaiting customers all across the country, hopefully we’ll see some quicker times posted soon. If you’d like to see one these beauties parked in your own driveway, pricing for the 2015 model starts at $78,995 for the coupe and $83,995 for the convertible. Both prices include destination.
