As far as speed and acceleration is concerned, get ready to hold onto your hats, this beast reaches 0 to 60 in a very quick 3.7 seconds and still in first gear!  And expect this car to reach speeds of 190 mph+.  Obviously with speed comes control and the Z06 has a very nice chassis and suspension that consists of upper and lower A arms- just like world class race cars.  The engine is hand built and body consists of an aluminum body structure and carbon fiber body components.  Overall this vehicle is a true sports car and at less than $80K, it is not only one of the most powerful vehicles available, but a great bargain.
