What’s better than a new Corvette Z06? A new Corvette Z06 doing a hella-good burnout — that’s what. And what could make it better? Gratuitous slow motion!
Whoever said we’re in the twilight of horsepower and performance cars hasn’t looked outside recently. If anything, we’re in the new golden age of both.
Just take the following video of a race between a C7 Z06 and a motorcycle as proof.
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.
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.
According to forum member “lawdogg149″ who posted this PDR footage to YouTube, it only took a few attempts to get down to a 3.16-second 0-60 time. Best of all, lawdogg149 had his brother in the car.
