Call it whatever you like: a sports car, a muscle car, or a supercar. The legacy of the Chevrolet Corvette remains the same. Plus, the incredibly long and rich history that it possesses is almost completely unparalleled in the automotive world. The Corvette is one of the few nameplates that’s stood the test of time, constantly winning over new fans while continuing to (mostly) satisfy the purists.
A few missteps notwithstanding, the Corvette has grown more competitive with each successive generation. And in its current iteration, it isn’t just the fastest production car to ever come from General Motors. It’s also one of the fastest cars in the world. While it has seen its share of competition from its Detroit rivals over the years, Chevrolet has spared no expense to ensure that its performance car is first and foremost a global contender — and we wouldn’t want it any other way.
But with Corvettes getting faster by the year, and a number of special edition models muddying the waters, it’s no small task figuring out which cars are the fastest of all-time. So we crunched the numbers and we came up with a list of the 10 quickest Corvettes, ranked by acceleration time from zero to 60 miles per hour. We’ve excluded modified models, concepts, and racing-spec cars (including the Z06-R, C7.R, and others), and stuck with production models. So without further ado, here are the 10 fastest Chevrolet Corvettes of all time.
