Default 8-Second Twin Turbocharged Corvette Z06 Redefines Fast



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.

Wow! That's fast.

Any more details on this car? I don't really follow these kind of builds, but I'm curious about the transmission. You couldn't even hear it shift.

Car is built by D3 Performance Engineering. It's a twin turbo automatic car. Owner is a great guy and has been in the scene for awhile (S. Dunn).

Sounds good. I heard 3 shifts during the pass. Maybe its a power-glide transmission. Is that car street legal?

I suppose that depends on what streets you drive
