Equipped with the 8-speed automatic transmission, this Corvette Z06 flies down the track in under 11 seconds at 10.41; about half a second quicker than the 10.95 time claimed by GM. This time sets the world record for fastest stock C7 Z06 1/4 run on stock tires, according to the publisher of the video.
Interstingly, this completely stock Z06 is only .2 seconds slower than the Vengeance Racing Z06, which was tuned to run partly on methanol, and has (approximately) 750 hp. This automatic Z06 also traps a speed of 134 mph, which is 8 mph quicker than this manual Corvette running the 1/4 mile.
The Chevrolet C7 Corvette Z06 has had its up and downs; from impressive feats in autocross and major comparison test wins, to frustrated owners facing engine failures. Despite it all, when you witness an alleged stock Z06 run the 1/4 mile in 10.41 seconds, it’s hard to stay a critic.
