Watch How Fast A 2022 Chevrolet C8 Corvette Z51 Can Go In A Standing Mile
Marketed as “the most powerful Stingray Sports Car produced, ever,” the 2022 C8 Corvette continues the legacy that started in 2020 with the arrival of the mid-engine platform. The car certainly delivers the goods: a 495 horsepower, 470 lb./ft of torque V8 engine mated to an 8-speed automatic transaxle that, paired together, delivers a 0-60 time of just 2.9 seconds, a quarter-mile time of just 11.2 seconds, and a top track speed of 194 MPH!
This video from the Johnny Bohmer Proving Grounds YouTube channel demonstrates the top speed achievable by a standard C8 Corvette equipped with the Z51 Performance Package in a standing mile.
For an an additional cost of $6,345 over the base price of a C8 Corvette, the Z51 package includes several key components, most notably the performance exhaust, which increases the engine’s output to 495 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. Additionally, it incorporates an electronic limited-slip differential and an extra radiator to enhance cooling. The suspension features manually adjustable threaded spring seats, while Brembo brakes enhance braking performance. These vehicles are equipped with Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires, with a 19-inch diameter in the front and a 20-inch diameter in the rear.
