The Corvette ZR1
This is another brilliant example of a true speedster. The vehicle goes from 0 to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds. This is absolutely astonishing, but it’s not something that should actually surprise you. If you took a look under the hood, you’d be pleasantly surprised by a 6.2 liter V8 boasting 628 horsepower. Up until the Z06, this was by far the fastest engine of Corvette. However, it also comes with a hefty 6-figure price tag so it might be a good idea to check for a used one.
The Z06 2011 Carbon edition
This one, much like its current counterpart – the Z06, is going to get from 0 to 60 mph in about 3.7 seconds which is almost a second slower than the current model. Of course, this is due to the proper optimization of the newer model. Even though the Carbon Edition boasts a 7.0 liter V8, it comes with 505 HP. However, for a few years, the car definitely managed to break a few records.
The Corvette Z06 – The Winner
We won’t keep you waiting. The answer to what Corvette engine is the fastest is pretty straightforward – it’s the one under the hood of the Corvette Z06. From 0 to 60 in about 3 seconds, the sport 6.2 liter V8 engine is definitely going to provide you with the adrenaline rush of driving a beast. It boasts an incredible 650 horsepower under the hood and 650 pound-feet of torque.
