New Leak Exposes Just How Fast the 2022 Chevy C8 Corvette Z06 Really Is
Believe it or not, the C8 Corvette Z06 is apparently just as fast and the C7 Corvette ZR1!
A new leaked image of a c8 Corvette Z06 product board has exposed just how fast it really is from 0-60 mph and down the quarter mile.
It’s as fast as the last-gen C7 Corvette ZR1, taking just 2.6 seconds to 60 mph, and it’ll run the quarter-mile sprint in 10.6-seconds, making it 0.3-seconds faster than the last-gen Z06 down the quarter-mile.
Outside of how much we’re wondering about the performance of the upcoming C8 Corvette ZR1 and E-Ray, we are also curious about how it stacks up with other supercars
Compared to the Ferrari F8 Tributo, which starts at $276,550, the C8 Z07 is faster to 60 mph by 0.3 seconds, but the F8 will still win a quarter-mile race as it takes just 10.5 seconds and hits 139.3 mph.
As for the even more expensive Ford GT, well it’s definitely slower, taking 3.0 seconds to 60 mph. It runs the quarter-mile in 10.8 seconds with a trap speed of 134 mph.
The gimmick here is that the C8 Corvette Z06 is expected to start out at around $90,000 and should max out at around $110,000 – a far cry from what both the F8 Tributo and Ford GT cost, if you can even find a Ford GT at MSRP these days, which is doubtful.
It should also be pointed out that there’s a footnote regarding the Z06’s performance, but so far, nobody has been able to make out what it says. Likely, this performance requires premium fuel, the Z07 package, and special tires at the very least.
