A mathematician named Kyle Marsh was able to determine the acceleration time of the sports coupe Chevy Corvette C8 Z06 from 0 to 100 km / h just by watching a video that shows the fast driving of the prototype of the novelty. According to the forecasts of the mathematician, it will take 2.5 seconds for a car to sprint to the first hundred.
The C8 Corvette Z06 was recently spotted during test runs at the Milford Proving Grounds (USA), which made it possible to hear the menacing roar of its engine. A mathematician named Kyle Marsh states that a simple calculation can roughly determine how fast a vehicle can accelerate to 100 km / h using the same footage.
After counting the numbers, Marsh calculated that the Chevy Corvette C8 in the more powerful version of the Z06 could overcome the first hundred in about 2.5 seconds. It should be noted that these are still approximate calculations.
Since the footage gives a clear view of where the car starts to accelerate, Marsh was able to create a formula to calculate the speed of the car. While this may seem like a relatively straightforward endeavor at first glance, there are many external factors that can affect the bottom line. First, the car did not start at the same point for every ride, and the sound waves used to calculate gear shift points were quite distorted.
It is rumored that under the hood of the Z06 will be a less powerful variant of the 5.5-liter V8 engine used in the C8.R race car. While it’s hard to be sure, the footage shows the car using all of first gear to accelerate to 100 km / h.
While highly speculative, a 0-60 mph figure of less than three seconds will put the Z06 next to supercars such as the Ferrari SF90 Stradale, Rimac Concept_one and the Ford GT.
