2016 C7 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Beats A BMW & Dodge Challenger Hellcat In A Drag Race

With the new C8 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 getting all the attention right now, the C7 Corvette Z06 is likely to become more affordable in the used market. The previous generation Z06 is a robust American sports car with only 20 fewer horsepower than the new Z06 (650 hp vs. 670 hp). Its significant advantage lies in producing almost 200 lb-ft more torque than the new C8 Corvette Z06 (650 lb-ft vs. 460 lb-ft).

In this video from Wheels YouTube channel, we get to see the full potential of a 2016 C7 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 as it completely destroys a Dodge Challenger Hellcat and an E92 BMW 335i at the drag strip.

The video shows the remarkable value proposition of a C7 Corvette Z06 in the secondhand market. Priced between $65,000 and $80,000, there are few sports cars that can rival the performance offered by the C7 Z06 within this price range.
