Corvette Stingray Z51 Does 0-60 MPH In Mere 3.8 Seconds

With a 455-horsepower, 6.2L V8, we already know just how performance-worthy the new Corvette Stingray really is. And at only $51K, it's pretty thrifty as well, if we do say so ourselves. But tack on Chevy's new Z51 performance package, and you'll find it loaded up with an electronic limited-slip differential, dry-sump oil system, integral brake, differential and transmission cooling systems, racing seats and a handsome new aero package. But what does that all get you on the track?

Corvette Stingray Z51 Does 0-60 MPH In Mere 3.8 Seconds

If you willing to dish out this extra $2,800, you'll find your Corvette raking in a 0-60 mph time of 3.8 seconds, including an impressive lap around VIR (Virginia International Raceway) in only 2:51.78 seconds. For reference, that's just about quicker than the Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera (2:51.80). You can own all this Corvette sexiness for a measly $56,590, when it goes on sale sometime in the fall.
