Corvette Stingray: 3.8 seconds from 0 to 60 mph
Turns in 2:51.8 lap at Virginia International Raceway 'Grand Course'

DETROIT – Chevrolet released official performance estimates today for the 2014 Corvette Stingray, the most capable standard Corvette ever. Equipped with the available Z51 Performance Package, the new Stingray is capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds, braking from 60 to 0 in 107 feet, and sustaining 1.03 g in cornering.

Cumulatively, the acceleration, cornering and braking capability of the Corvette Stingray enable it to lap the Virginia International Raceway's (VIR) 4.2-mile "Grand Course" in 2:51.78.

"For the new Stingray, we set out to elevate every aspect of the Corvette's performance," said Tadge Juechter, Corvette chief engineer. "Considered alone, the acceleration, braking and cornering performance of the Corvette Stingray is truly impressive. More significant is how well they work together, resulting in a lap time at VIR that places the new Stingray in the upper echelon of all sports cars."

2014 Corvette Stingray Z51
Acceleration from 0-60 MPH: 3.8 seconds
mile acceleration: 12 seconds @ 119 mph
Braking distance from 60 to 0 MPH: 107 feet
Maximum lateral acceleration: 1.03 G
VIR 'Grand Course' Lap: 2:51.78

The lap around VIR was conducted in Stingray equipped with the available Z51 Performance Package and Magnetic Ride Control. The vehicle that conducted the lap was modified only with safety features like a racing seat and harness, and fire extinguisher system.

"The new Stingray constantly communicates feedback to the driver, which makes you feel incredibly confident behind the wheel," said Jim Mero, Corvette vehicle dynamics engineer. "That confidence encourages you to attack each corner because the Stingray drives so well: the tire grip is incredible; the steering response is some of the best I've ever experienced; the Magnetic Ride dampers allow little body roll through the corner, while still soaking up the rumble strips when you clip the apex," he said. "It's just addictive on the track."

The 2014 Corvette Stingray coupe goes on sale in the third quarter of 2013 for a suggested starting retail price of $51,995, excluding tax, title, and license fees. The $2,800 Z51 Performance Package includes an electronic limited-slip differential; dry-sump oiling system; integral brake, differential and transmission cooling; as well as a unique aero package that further improves high-speed stability. Magnetic Ride Control with Performance Traction Management is a $1,795 option. A Corvette Stingray equipped like the test car used at VIR would cost $56,590.

Founded in 1911 in Detroit, Chevrolet is now one of the world's largest car brands, doing business in more than 140 countries and selling more than 4.5 million cars and trucks a year. Chevrolet provides customers with fuel-efficient vehicles that feature spirited performance, expressive design, and high quality. More information on Chevrolet models can be found at www.chevrolet.com.
That's a pretty fast car.

Is that accurate? That's basically dead even with the current ZR1 on PS2's and a second slower than the Z on Sport Cups.

Yes it's accurate. Don't compare to Car and Driver's times because they are slower than Jim Mero. I think the Z06 on GYII's ran something like 2:50 and the ZR1 on PS2's was in the high 2:40's with GM drivers.

107' for 60 is actually good for a car. My guess is there is a difference in tires. The compound or something is different because the lateral G force is lower too. The tires matter quite a lot in braking performance. There could also be a difference in the surface they were stopping on or the track temperature. A lot of things affect stopping distance.


EDIT: The Centennial Edition Z06 has upgraded brakes over a C6.

Tire Size, Front: 285/20ZR19
Tire Size, Rear: 335/25ZR20
Brakes, Front: 15.5-in vented, drilled, carbon-ceramic disc/6-piston, ABS
Brakes, Rear: 15.0-in vented, drilled carbon-ceramic disc/4-piston, ABS

A base 2012 C6 is something like 128'

11.90's for a Z06 is a horrible time. What did they do, drag an anvil behind it?! Just check the Z06 fast list, it's gone much quicker than 11.90

11.9 is okay for a average driver on stock tires. There are traction issues with the Z06 at launch and it takes a lot of practice to get it right. I have raced many C6 Z06 in my modded C5 at the drag strip and they will get down to mid 11's with practice and down into the 10's with real tires.

If you think those times are bad, you would be stunned with what the ZR1's turn in the 1/4 mile. They are not much faster than a lot of the Z06s because they have no traction in the first two gears.

Usually the magazine are a better representation of your average driver in a car, not people like Ranger or Fartpipe that can put a ZR1 in the 10's bone stock.

The Z06/Z07's were a good bit heavier than the early Z06's.

The numbers look good, but I'm surprised at the stopping distance. I would have thought it would be about the same as a current GS which most list at about 101 feet.

I knew this car was going to be a beast!!

Cant believe people doubted it. Like I've been saying from the start.. C7 will deliver C6Z06-like performance (12 sec 1/4, 1.03G skidpad, 3.8-60 and VIR in 2.51.7)

I never expected the C7 to outperform the C6Z. But it definitely makes it a drivers race between the two vehicles.

Thanks for sharing! As long as it's better than the Grand sport I guess this makes since. Can we confirm or deny that it is in fact better at stopping than the GrandSport?

What I found interesting is that the Z06 Carbon/Centennial was essentially only one of 20 cars that can do 60-0 in < 100'

That brings another interesting point out: The Base C7's rear tires are the same width as the C6 Z06's front tires.

Doesn't it really matter at this point? On the road or track, the C7 is going to be the quicker car.

The official GM number for the Z06 is 11.7 @ 125 mph. Plus on the fast list there are 20 drivers who have run 11.60's or better, stock car on stock tires.

No doubt about it the C7 with the Z51 package is very fast, 12 flat for a "base" car is nothing to sneeze at. Makes you wonder what they have in store for the higher performing versions.

I totally agree - I'm sure we will have people in the high/mid 11's with the C7 on a good day with a good driver. 119mph trap is almost what I wanted
