Watch this C6 Corvette Z06 Take a Bite out of the Texas Mile
Look at the picture above and notice how you can see the curvature of the Earth. While the curvature is just an illusion created by the camera, it adds to the profound effect you’ll feel when you watch this 2010 Corvette Z06 eat up the Texas Mile, Cookie Monster-style. The way this video was shot, it makes you feel as though the Z06 is 3,000 meters long and is traveling across the entire state of Texas in less than 30 seconds. While the car’s actual speed across the Texas Mile is far less than the 96,120 mph it takes to rocket across Lone Star State in 30 seconds, the Z06’s recorded Texas Mile speeds are still impressive.
The C6 Z06’s speedy tendencies begin with a fully built and forged LS7 topped with ported heads and an Edelbrock supercharger. The engine also underwent an E85 conversion. The cherry on top for this build would have to be the direct-port nitrous system. When the N2O is activated, the Corvette is producing 960 rear-wheel horsepower, and 775 to the wheels at 11 pounds of boost without nitrous. All the mods were put together and tuned by Serious HP in Houston, TX.
