Below are the results of performance testing 2001 and 2002 Z06 Corvettes by Auto Performance Test Lab located in Atlanta, Georgia. These results were published in the February 2002 edition of Vette Vues Magazine and we would like to thank Stan Adelman and David Fulcher of Auto Performance Test Lab for allowing us to include their test results here.

As stated on page 34 of the Vette Vues Magazine article:

Our test method employed is a simple "time to speed" application. Over the last 17 years of consumer testing, we have found that this method is more reliable than the testing of "time to distance".
Drivers we employed were not professional. All had drag strip experience....all cars tested were stock except for two. Only the stock cars results are listed in the final average numbers. the two after-market cars and their test results are listed separately.

Test Conditions

  • Weather:  60 to 73 degrees, Humidity - 35% to 48%, Wind - None that affected test results.
  • Road Surface:  Highway black tops with testing done in both directions.
  • Vehicle Setup:  Stock. Fuel - 1/2 tank. Tire Pressure - manufacturer's recommendation.
  • Test Dates:  November, 2000, September 2001, October 2001, November 2001.
  • Location:  Atlanta, GA and Rosewell, GA.
