Chevrolet Corvette Z06
MSRP: $79,400
Horsepower: 650
Often referred to as America’s sports car, the Corvette has been in production since 1953. Just one year after taking the wraps off an all-new seventh-generation Corvette in 2014, Chevrolet debuted the most powerful production Vette ever — the Z06. This extreme Corvette boasts a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine that puts out 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque, making the Z06 more powerful than any General Motors production vehicle ever made. And with all that power, the capability of the Z06 is nothing but extraordinary — 60 mph comes up in about 3 seconds, a quarter mile gets easily eclipsed in 10.95 at 127 mph, and top speed is in excess of 200 mph. The Z06 also achieves 1.2 g in cornering acceleration, and braking from 60 to zero mph takes just 99.6 feet.
