A brief history of the Corvette Z06
New 625bhp Z06 follows a great – but short – tradition of really fast ‘Vettes. We chart them all

2014 Corvette C7 Z06
And finally, we come to this - the 2014 Corvette Z06. Chevy says its 6.2-litre V8 produces "over 625bhp" - almost as much as the frighteningly rapid C6 ZR1 - and a handy 635lb ft of torque. Given the old Z06 could reach 60mph in 3.9 seconds, this new Vette, with over 100 more bhp, should be quick enough to tear a hole in time. To keep all that power in check, it's got adaptive dampers, ceramic brakes, and countless other parts and systems designed to make the C7 Z06 the best Corvette yet.
And it looks the business, which is always helpful.
