[VIDEO] Brembo Shows Off Its Stopping Power in the 2015 Corvette Z06

Chevy released the amazing 0-60 time of 2.95 seconds for the 2015 Corvette Z06, the fastest time ever for a GM production car.

Equally as amazing is how quickly the Z06 can go from 60 to 0 mph – in 99.6 feet with the Z07 package!

Brembo is the brains behind that stellar performance, and the company recently released a neat video explaining how its carbon ceramic brake system does the trick.

Doug Kinsman was just following orders when one of the judges at a prestigious car show asked him to see if the windshield washers worked on his 1962 Corvette.

Kinsman’s car was being judged last month at Cobble Beach when judge John Ballard requested the operation of the washers.

Kinsman had never tried them so he said he didn’t know if they would work or not.

He soon found out that they did squirt washer fluid, lots of it, in fact – just not in the right place.

2015 Corvette Z06 reportedly armed with the 8-Speed Automatic Transmission was spotted testing on the Nurburgring.

We were pretty excited to hear that Chevrolet was testing the Corvette Z06 on the Nurburgring but after the seeing the yellow Corvette Z06 with the Z07 Performance Package had crashed, our hopes were dashed for a flying lap.

But now we know that Chevy took a Laguna Blue Corvette Z06 for testing on the Nurburgring as well, and according to unsubstantiated reports, this one is armed with the Stage 2 aerodynamics package along with the new 8-speed automatic.

We’ll keep checking back with Bridge2Gantry for any more updates.
