It's torque that gets you going, whether launching from a standstill, or accelerating out of a corner. At 85, last year's Z06 was already in an elite class. For 2002, we've upped the ante with another 15 pounds-feet of torque, for a total of 400 pounds-feet at 4,800 rpm. The result is one that must be experienced to be appreciated,"
