2009 Corvette Z06 Blazes the Texas Mile
It stands to reason that Colorado Performance Unlimited’s work on this 2009 Corvette Z06 is top notch. Cause that’s the only way a rocket ship like this exists.
Check out this 11-second quarter mile by a Hennessey Performance C7 with a small 2.3L supercharger, new heads and cams, and a slight ECU tweak to give the Corvette over 700 horsepower.
It looks as though forum member “Lawdogg149’s” blown-engine troubles with his Corvette Z06 are behind him. You may recall Lawdogg was the first Z06 customer to experience engine failure with only 891 miles on his odometer.
Believe it or not, there are still folks out there who think that the new Z06 is slow. As evidence to the contrary, we submit this video of a stock Z06 racing against a Lamborghini Gallardo Super Trofeo Stradale.
The inspiring video, “Why We Race,” highlights racing’s impact on the production of the Corvette, while suggesting that any performance improvements to be made to the C7 and Z06 will likely come from the racetrack as well.
