Might want to proof read that article a few more times. Last time I checked there were no 3.5L engines in Vettes, and the '16 Z06 is a little faster to 60 than 22.95 seconds.

I agree. Back to the drawing board Bassem. 3.5L???? Time to get a rope!

Also, "Curated Content Editor" needs to be changed to "New guy learning, but hired to help promote forum traffic".

Sorry if I missed the boat on any of this, no offense there, Gassem Fashur.

Actually looking at "the list", I am wondering if Corvette Forum wasn't hacked by the Russians. ??

Don't worry it managed to drop 20 seconds off that estimated time. That must have been without using the PTM. With PTM it apparently managed a 0 to 60 in 2.295 seconds?!! I may have to go out and pick up a C7Z now. Showing Veyrons, 911 Turbo S, and GTRs it's tail lights!

And what a lame list of "7 Most Powerful Corvettes". A base C5 and the Hertz C6? I'm starting to wonder why I continue to read the home page.

this list doesnt make much sense at all.. Especially being in Drag racing Thread it makes zero sense since the slowest has been picked..

the 50th anni was no more powerful then standard ls1s,.and it loaded with options makes it even Slower and wheres the ls6?

the c6 grand sport has base ls3 which makes it less power to weigh.. the 427 same thing the c6z is lighter. and its a convertible why would anyone drag race it (lol I do, I did, Ill do it again ).. and the 2012 centi. would arguable be slower then standard z06 since its aero package and wheels are heavier

and where is the zr1?

sure the c7z is there but thats becasue its fresh on the mind...

Its a good list but sorry By far the title is Sooooo off...
