A need for speed
DETROIT, MICHIGAN- A new version of the classic Chevy Corvette can go from zero to 60 miles per hour in under three-seconds. General Motors says the 2015 Corvette Z06 can hit 60 mph in 2.95 seconds and can travel a quarter mile in under eleven-seconds. Top speed in the quarter is 127 mph.
The Z06 goes on sale next year and will sell for $80,000. GM says it will be the first front-engine rear-wheel drive production car to break the three-second barrier. The one that achieved the time was equipped with an eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters and a supercharged V8 engine that puts out 650 horsepower.
