2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 – Motor Trend

The all-new 2015 Corvette Z06 is sure to be a gem of a supercar. The stats alone don’t tell the full story, or do they? The new Corvette Z06 is remarkable as the very first test drive reviews have concluded making the case that this vehicle is a contender among those that cost nearly 10 times as much as its price of admission.

To capture the full brevity of what the new Corvette Z06 has to offer we will have to get one in for a full review ourselves very soon. Until then, we have some exclusive footage of the Z06 playing on the race track with its intoxicating sound. What you will see is a vehicle that can do 0-60 mph in 3.2 seconds, bend turns at well over 1g, come to a full stop from 60 mph in just 91 feet and do it all over and over for a starting price of about $79,000.
