The Chevy Corvette line is pretty well rounded at this point, starting with the plain old Stingray up to the beastly, hardcore ZR1, with the Grand Sport and Z06 filling in the gaps.

It's the ultimate iteration of what Chevy's been building for 65 years. Thanks to CorvetteBlogger.com and Corvette Production Manager Harlan Charles, we finally have the official figures: 0-60 mph in 2.85 seconds, 0-100 mph in 6 seconds and the quarter-mile in 10.6 seconds at 134 mph.
