Quotes

2005.10 – Motor Trend – First Drive: 2006 Chevrolet Corvette Z06

“In a straight line… the Corvette is Ferrari-fast, turning numbers quicker than the F430 F1…
0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds, and… the standing quarter in 11.5 seconds at 127.1 mph.”

2005.10 – Motor Trend – First Drive: 2006 Chevrolet Corvette Z06

“Nothing seems too great a task, and only your instinct for self-preservation gets in
the way of attempting the impossible.”

2005.10 – Car and Driver – Chevrolet Corvete Z06 Road Test

“By almost every performance standard, the Z06 is a supercar…it ripped to 60 mph in only
3.6 seconds, hit 100 in 7.9, and 150 in 17.5. That’s on par with or better than the performance
of the $153,345 Ford GT (and good luck getting that price) and $180,785 Ferrari F430.”

2005.10 – Automobile – 2006 Chevrolet Corvette Z06

“To those who would question the forward direction of man’s technological progress,
we point to the Z06 and rest our case.”

2005.12 – Road and Track – Rivals! Corvette Z06 vs. Viper SRT10 Coupe

“Throttle response is instantaneous and acceleration downright eye-opening.
From 4000 to the engine’s 7000-rpm redline, power seems to increase almost
exponentially, accompanied by an exhaust note that would sound at home in a Nextel Cup car.”

2005.12 – Car and Driver – 2006 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 vs.Dodge Viper SRT10

“The brawl was over before the teachers broke it up. In every performance category except one,
the Vette won or tied the Viper… We’re still buzzing over the Z06’s ferocious
3.4-second burst to 60mph.”

2006.09 – Car and Driver – 2006 Z06 vs. 2006 F430 vs. 2007 911 Turbo

“The Z06…accelerates as quickly as the 911 Turbo through the quarter and wastes both the Porsche
and Ferrari at speeds above 120 mph. How about 0 to 150 mph in 17.7 seconds? That’s up there in
Ford GT territory, if not as stupid fast as a McLaren F1… The Z06 has the most grip at 1.01 g
and the best braking performance.”

2006.09 – Road and Track – World Superpowers

“the Z06’s greatest strength, quite literally, is its monster V-8 that forces a continuous,
chunky torrent of torque to the rear tires, fueling Le Mans fantasies to 7000 rpm. Just
treat the throttle like a rheostat, not an on/off switch.”
