8.69 seconds at 153 miles per hour. These are unfathomable numbers for most of us mere mortals who have never built anything like this take-no-prisoners C6 Corvette Z06. It is immediately obvious that this ‘Vette pulls no punches with a lumpy-lopey idle that sounds like it is chanting along to a chorus of frat bros going “Chug Chug Chug Chug Chug.”

Spool up your turbos and smoke your meats, because you’re about to go for the ride of a lifetime in the video below. Plant your right foot, and as the boost builds you see the tree go green. Release the brakesĀ and hook. The wide sticky rubber provides an unparalleled transference of rotational energy into forward motion.

Just 8.69 seconds is all it takes for you to set a personal best. The crowd gives an impressed “wow” as they see the number flash across the boards. How long until the pride of this run fades and you’re back at it, chasing an even lower number?
