Stingray Z51 0-60 in 3.8 seconds

Saw on gminsidenews forum where GM released this info. Plus corners at 1.03g's. They had a pic of a white one on the track. It was beautiful. I'm on my phone or I'd post the link myself.

Since the C7 coupe they tested to generate those numbers only had the Z51 and FE4 Mag ride option (totaling $56590)... maybe one with the NPP option (+ $1195) added bump the acceleration times a tad bit better? For example, add the NPP and just maybe a 11.9 sec in the 1/4... sounds juicier than 12 flat.

I'm pretty sure when these things hit the streets people will crack 11's easy if they ran a 12 flat in it.

Damn! I knew it was going to be good, but WOW! Hmmm, don't want to trade the Boss - as I love it (so does the kid fitting in the backseat), but seriously need to figure out how to get my hands on a Stringray.

I am eager to see these figures as well. I'm going to predict either just as fast or just a hair quicker. Certainly no big difference either way. We shall see.

I agree Id imagine will be just as fast unless no launch control in auto and u have to launch off idle then u will lose a lil off the launch..

i havent seen anywhere if it said auto didnt have it.. of course i didnt see anything confirming it did..

I can't remember where I saw it, but I heard right from Tadge I think, both transmissions have launch control.
