This HAS to be my next bargain auto purchase:
The 2015 Chevy Corvette Z06 will come out of the box with a sub-3-second 0-60 time and sub-11-second quarter-mile time. That puts the approximately $80,000 Z06 on par with the outgoing $180,000 Lamborghini Gallardo, the $1.5 million Ferrari 599XX, the $1.2 million McLaren P1 and the $103,365 Nissan GT-R. Is it the deal of the century? Signs point to yes.
The 2.95-second sprint time comes courtesy of the company’s new eight-speed automatic transmission, which we tested a few weeks ago. The seven-speed manual can only achieve a slug-like 3.2 seconds.
