1,000-HP Corvette Does A Quarter Mile in 9 Seconds
The C7 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is an amazing machine. The $80,000 price tag? Not so amazing. While there are many affordable supercharger cars on the market, few are quite as fast as the Z06. A close runner-up is the Callaway C7 Corvette, a supercharger which produces 610 hp. It can hit 0-60 in 3.4 seconds and do the quarter-mile in 11 seconds. Sure, that’s pretty fast, but doesn’t come close to the monstrous procharged C7 with over 1,000 hp.
The car was fitted with drag radials when it conquered the quarter-mile in 9.69 seconds at 143 mph. Making it one of the fastest Corvettes we’ve ever seen. See for yourself:
