Get ready to listen to the beautiful sounds of the world’s fastest half-mile C7 Z06 on this Auto Evolution video.
The super Corvette, based in Georgia, has been tuned by Vengeance Racing, no strangers to the world of Corvette performance. They had to add some extra downforce to keep the car stable at high speed, which generated drag and slowed things down.
To make up for that, the 6.2-liter V8 – with its boost already dialed up – had to receive a 150 shot of nitrous, and the result was just what the doctor ordered to increase the car’s top end to a whopping 177 mph in the half-mile – best ever recorded by a C7 Z06.
Don’t expect that record to last long, though, as tuners are really starting to get it in gear as far as increasing the performance levels of the Z06. We expect to see those top-end numbers to keep on climbing, at least we can hope.
