This was taken at Road Atlanta running with NASA on March 16, 2008. I am driving a relatively stock C5 Z06 Corvette trying to keep up with a highly modified MTI Corvette Z06. I was able to keep up in the corners, but it had a lot of power to pull away on the straights. I am on Nitto 555R2 tires that are now due for replacement. The owner of the MTI Z06 is a very nice guy and has a very cool car. It was a lot of fun trying to keep up.
2015 Corvette Z06 - Top Speed Acceleration & Sound
2015 Corvette Z06 with Z07 performance package. 659 PS and 881 Nm of torque
from a 6.2 liter supercharged pushrod V8 and a soundtrack like no other ;)
as you can see, the aerodynamic downforce generated by the Z07 Performance
Pack is holding back the car at high speeds, but it´s also the reason for
it being an absolute monster on the track! It destroyed our fastest
production car lap (991 turbo S) at
Sachsenring by TWO seconds, the track performance was just unbelievable!!
1200hp Turbo STREET MONSTER Corvette!
Footage from THE HUNT DVD -
One of the most impressive CRAZY street cars we've seen in the past few
years, and it's so damn simple! Slap a giant turbo on a C5 Corvette, put a giant tire on the
back, and hold on for dear life! OK, so maybe it's not that simple to lay
down 1200hp + on the street, but we think you'll agree that this

2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 (Z07 Package) at Smokey's Dyno & Performance
This week we bring you a walkaround, POV Test Drive, and a few Dyno pulls in the new 2015
Chevrolet Corvette Z07 Package at Smokey's Dyno & Performance in Akron,
The heart of the new C7 Corvette Z06 is the supercharged, direct injected
6.2-liter LT4 V8, generating 650 horsepower and 650
pound-feet of torque – the most powerful production powerplant in GM’s
history. That twist can be sent to the rear wheels by way of either a
seven-speed manual gearbox with a new dual-mass flywheel and dual-disc
clutch, or GM's own all-new eight-speed automatic gearbox. Our tester today
is equipped with the seven-speed manual gearbox.
The new Z06 also offers three separate aero packages. The first includes
all the pieces found within in the standard Stingray outfitted with the Z51
performance package, while the second level of aero upgrades adds a carbon
fiber front splitter with aviation-style winglets, carbon fiber rocker
panels, and a larger rear spoiler with a fixed wickerbill. The third aero
kit - part of the Z07 package - will add even more downforce capability to
the Z06 package via larger winglets added to the front splitter, along with
an adjustable, see-through center section on the rear spoiler for track
This particular example is equipped with that Z07 package, which also
includes the extremely sticky Michelin Sport Cup 2 tires measuring
P285/30ZR19 in front and 335/25ZR20 in the rear, along with Brembo
six-piston calipers up front and four-pistons in the back, which clamp down
on 15.5-inch front and 15.3-inch rear carbon ceramic-matrix brake rotors.
All told, the Z06 is a formidable performance package, and made even more
compelling with a price tag that starts at $78,995. Another $2,995 will get
you the Carbon Fiber Ground Effects package, which adds the functional
carbon fiber front splitter, carbon fiber rocker panels, and a larger rear
spoiler, while the Z07 package with its carbon-ceramic brakes, upgraded
tires and even more aggressive aero will set you back $7,995.
