A new eight-speed automatic gets the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 to 60mph in just 2.95 secs along with a quarter-mile sprint in just 10.95 secs - The 707hp Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat might have lost it's US Musclecar crown!
The Corvette Z06 accelerates from a rest to 60 mph in only 2.95 seconds when equipped with the all-new, available eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission – and achieves it in 3.2 seconds with the standard seven-speed manual transmission.
A quarter-mile sprint takes just 10.95 seconds with the eight-speed automatic and 11.2 seconds with the seven-speed manual. With both versions, the Corvette Z06 hits 127 mph at the end of the quarter-mile.
When it comes to braking performance, the Z06 can stop from 60 mph in only 99.6 feet. That’s the best braking performance of any production car GM has ever tested. Additionally, the Corvette Z06 achieves 1.2 g in lateral acceleration compared with the Corvette’s previous best 1.13 g.
The new Z06 is also the fastest production car ever tested at GM’s 2.9-mile Milford Road Course, beating the record set by the Corvette ZR1 by a full second.
All test results were achieved with Z06 coupes fitted with the Z07 Performance package, which adds Brembo carbon ceramic brake rotors and Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires. The Z07 package also features the most aggressive aerodynamic package available on the Corvette Z06, which delivers the most downforce of any production car GM has ever tested.
This is the problem. Too few people are willing to stand up and tell it like it is with regards to Apple. Any reasonable tech reviewer who looks at the iPhone 6 series objectively will come away unimpressed like Adam (and myself).
Instead you have people whoring themselves out to do gushing reviews of mediocre crap that costs twice what it's worth. (I'm looking at you you two dollar whores of Tech)
Then, when someone does have the guts to tell it like it actually is, the iFans flood them with hateful comments.
Well screw you guys. The truth is that the iPhone 6 /Plus are nothing special and would only begin to be worth buying at less than half the price. Even then, you'd be better off with a still cheaper Nexus 5 or an on contract S5, Moto X, or Note 4.
Oh, and BTW you forgot to mention just how ugly those plastic inserts are in person. You'd think for $800-$1000 they could have come up with a less tacky way to avoid another antennagate.
Be sure to read my follow up post here because it doesn't have to be this way.
