Chevrolet has released the official performance numbers for the 2014 Corvette Stingray Z51, and just like the car’s exterior styling, the numbers are going to impress.
The all-new Corvette with the Z51 Performance Package is capable of achieving 0-60 in a rapid 3.8 seconds. It can brake from 60-0 in only 107 ft, and sustain 1.03 g in cornering grip.
Altogether, the acceleration, braking, and cornering grip helped the Corvette Stingray Z51 lap the Virginia International Raceway (VIR) 4.2 mile “Grand Course” in 2:51.78, putting it in the upper tier of all sports cars.
Take a look at the performance numbers for the 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray Z51:
- 0-60 MPH Acceleration: 3.8 seconds
- ¼ Mile Acceleration: 12 seconds @ 119 MPH
- Braking distance from 60-0: 107 ft
- Maximum lateral acceleration: 1.03 G
- VIR “Grand Course” Lap: 2:51.78
The tested Corvette sported the Z51 Performance Package as well as Magnetic Ride Control. The Corvette conducting the tests was only fitted with safety features like a racing seat and harness and a fire extinguisher system.
“Considered alone, the acceleration, braking and cornering performance of the Corvette Stingray is truly impressive. More significant is how well they work together, resulting in a lap time at VIR that places the new Stingray in the upper echelon of all sports cars.”
– Tadge Juechter, Corvette Vehicle Dynamics Engineer
