The Chevrolet Z06 has been a performance staple for the past 15 years, and for 2015 not much has changed. Jeremy Formato, the owner of Fasterproms Tuning is also the proud owner the worlds first 9-second 2015 Z06. “Honestly, I just wanted to prove to the world that our parts work,” explained Jeremy. “I’m just a small guy in a small shop, so to have the world’s first 9-second C7 Z06, is quite the ridiculous blessing.” Jeremy’s Z06 ran an impressive 9.872 at 138 mph quarter-mile on February 12th at Bradenton Motorsports Park.

Jeremy expects the car to do much better in the future. “We are still working out a few bugs and testing the limits of the fuel system,” Jeremy explained. “We dropped a couple of miles per hour in 3rd and 4th gear, as the car should run about 142-143 mph.” Check out the parts list below to see how Fasterproms pulled off this incredible feat.
