2017 Chevy Corvette Z06 vs. 2017 Acura NSX
Over the last several years, Chevrolet has established a strong foothold in the high-performing, carbon fiber-wearing supercar world with the Corvette Z06. Sharp handling and several hundred horsepower are second nature to the new Corvette Z06. But how does it stand up to new competitors? Examining the 2017 Chevy Corvette Z06 vs. 2017 Acura NSX gives new life to the old automotive adage, there is no replacement for displacement. In addition to hosting the most powerful engine GM has ever placed on the Corvette platform, the 2017 Z06 also offers everything a driver would need to nearly take the car from the Don Wheaton showroom to the nearest race track.
Owning a supercar like the 2017 Chevy Corvette Z06 or the 2017 Acura NSX is all about performance. There is just no other way around it, the 2017 Corvette Z06 can blow the doors off of the 2017 NSX. The Chevy-built supercar comes standard with a supercharged, 6.2-liter, V-8 engine making an incredible 650 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. According to Chevrolet, this amount of available power will push the 2017 Corvette Z06 from zero-to-60 mph in 2.95 seconds. The 2017 NSX posts a three-second time in the same category. The difference could lay in Chevy’s choice to use supercharging versus the Acura turbocharging technology. When a driver puts his or her foot into the throttle of the 2017 Corvette Z06, the supercharging unit instantly pulls more air into the engine to boost power output. Turbocharged engines do this as well but rely on air pressure to pull the air into the engine, resulting in a short delay.
Features of the 2017 Corvette Z06
Another advantage the 2017 Chevy Corvette Z06 has over the 2017 Acura NSX is its ability to more easily function as a daily driving vehicle. This means having all of the creature comforts one would expect to see in a high-end Chevy coupe. Future owners of the 2017 Corvette Z06 can count on having more mundane features like keyless ignition, heated mirrors and automatic climate controls as standard equipment. Additionally, the new Z06 comes with all of the latest Chevy connectivity technology like the 4G LTE Wi-fi hotspot which can help upload information collected by the standard Performance Data Recorder. Both vehicles share the ability to integrate smartphone applications into their native infotainment systems.
