C6 Corvette Z06 Takes on 1,160 Foot Hillclimb
Despite the well-known capabilities of the C6 Z06, you just don’t typically think, “hey, this would be a great car for hill climbing at 100 mph.”
Yes, you read that headline correctly. We’re talking about a C7 with a whopping, earth-shattering 4,000 horsepower!
We knew it was only a matter of time. Now it’s official: The Corvette Z06 has gone from being an American icon to gaining global Prince status.
With a modified 2009 C6 ZR1 pushing 730-horsepower, ol’ Rocket Man is edging ever closer to having a 200-mph run for a standing mile at the Texas Mile high speed shootout.
A day at the strip with this Lethal Performance ZR1 proves the old adage remains true: too much is never enough. Except, perhaps, when trying to get a clean launch.
