What a time to be alive – Chevrolet unveils the beastly 2017 Camaro ZL1, Lingenfelter is making over nearly double the factory power with the current Camaro ZL1, Hennessey sets a new record for world’s fastest convertible with the Venom GT Spyder, and now Callaway Cars shows us the capabilities of a C7 Corvette Z06 equipped with its SC757 package.
Under the hood of Corvette Z06 sits the powerful LT4 V8, married to an 8-speed automatic transmission. Callaway’s work on the Corvette allows it to reach a top speed of 202.3 miles per hour at the Mojave Magnum event in Las Vegas, Nevada — a longer version of the Mojave Mile.
For those who may not be familiar, the Mojave Mile is where racers head to compete for the highest top speed. The difference between the Mile and the Magnum is an extra half-mile of runway. The SC757 Callaway Corvette Z06 may or may not have been the fastest car at the event, but in any case you have to admit that it is pretty impressive.
