To make things clear about this car:

Discussion in '2002 Chevrolet Corvette Z06' started by lurbo, May 26, 2003.

  1. This car is fast, is great and it's gorgeous.But this great acceleration it has is not only from the torque, the role that the torque (for the acceleration) plays is only the 15%-20%.As you see this car is very aerodynamic (first reason)hence no difficulty to accelerate.If you know, the topspeed of this car is only 280km/h which is very low for a 405hp car, so as you understand the gear changes of the gearbox are very fast hence low topspeed (second reason).If the torque made this car to have great accelerations it wouldn't lose any topspeed as it does.
    For example here are the specs of other supercars:
    Ferrari 360 Modena:300km/h 0-100km/h:4,4seconds
    Porsche 911 turbo (993):295km/h 0-100km/h:4,4seconds
    Porsche 911 turbo (996):305km/h 0-100km/h:4,2seconds




    BTW:A car that has great acceleration and topspeed for its hp is the TVR Tuscan S:
    390hp 0-100km/h:3,9seconds Topspeed:295km/h
    This car (Z06) IS quick but not the fastest for its hp, so please stop saying all these things about its acceleration because there's also another car wich is MUCH quicker, with lower hp, the Tuscan S!!!

    well said the tuscan s can take any stock 'vette. too bad theyre only available over here in the UK...

    btw have you seen the tuscan R? that's even faster than the s.

    oh ok
     
  6. Re: To make things clear about this car:

    I've only seen the Speed 12 in person, none other
     
  7. Re: To make things clear about this car:

    woah! you've seen a speed 12???????
     
  8. Re: To make things clear about this car:

    The Tuscan S might be faster, but that comes down to its light weight. And it's light weight because it doesn't have some of the luxury and safety items the Z06 has.
     
  9. Re: To make things clear about this car:

    true. tvr's have no abs or other electronic aids, they're completely raw. this is part of the appeal for some. and the tuscans are fairly luxurious, albeit in their own tvrish way.
     
  10. Re: To make things clear about this car:

    Yeah they had it here once at this car show in Montreal
     
  11. Re: To make things clear about this car:

    ya ill bet that 180 mph is too slow for you. when is the last time you acually went past that?-----Ya, thats what I thought.
     
  12. Re: To make things clear about this car:

    Ya because you all know we dirve around at 220 MPH

    What the hell?! You know absolutly nothing about physics in any way, shape or form.
     
  15. Re: To make things clear about this car:

    my dad has this car in torch red!!! i love it.. i belieive the accel is 3.9 cause i rode in it enough.the car accelerates fast from like 60-140 and so on just the topspeed is low but the car is made for road racing so it needs good accel and not a high topspeed
     
  16. Re: To make things clear about this car:

    Who street races at nearly 300km/h?!?!
