2015 Corvette Z06 0-60 in under 3 seconds

When the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 dropped earlier this year I might have called it the greatest car ever. Now we have numbers to back that up. It turns out the new Z06 will do 0-60 in 2.95 seconds which is pretty damn fast. Who needs AWD? Not the Corvette Z06. Nissan GTR fanboys better watch out because the Americans are coming. Then there’s that little issue of quartermile. Well we speculated it might be a ten second car right out of the box and it is. The quartermile comes in at 10.95 seconds. That’s stupid fast for a factory car.

Let’s not forget the price. Coming in under $80,000 it begs the question. Why the hell does a slower, less reliable, less efficient Ferrari cost nearly $300,000? I have no clue, I’ll take the Z06. Readers, this is best car in the world. It’s American, and it’s obtainable. We live in amazing times. More after the jump.

Is the Camaro Z/28 the best drivers car? Motor Trend Says so.

The Best Driver’s Car contenders are selected from all new or significantly revised performance cars launched in the 12 months prior to the test. To pick the winner, the editors of Motor Trend conduct objective and subjective testing – including digitally instrumented laps at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, and high-speed driving up and down a 4.3-mile hill climb on a closed rural highway – to determine which car delivers the most engaging experience behind the wheel.

After completing that battery of tests, the editors of Motor Trend wrote:

“The transformation of the fifth-generation Camaro from ‘muscle car that handles pretty well’ to Best Driver’s Car winner is astounding. You feel the superior engineering in how the car responds to inputs both internal and external. From within, the car reacts immediately and precisely to your commands but doesn’t punish your mistakes. From the outside, the Z/28’s suspension attacks bumps and dips with an unbridled passion for keeping the tires on the pavement.”
