0-100 kph time needs to be slower than 0-60 mph time, 100 kph is 62 mph.

@ Everyone in here: Snake Skinner is a tuning option from GM for C4 ZR-1 Corvette. The first production car is prototype and GM executive think that this car is too fast and too dangerous to drive so they decide not make this model into a production cars. But after ZR-1 came out a year later, it become very popular and receive a great success so they decide to release Snake Skinner specs as optional tuning for C4 ZR-1 Corvette. 83 cars are fitted with this optional tuning pack and until the first C6 came out, Snake Skinner ZR-1 still the fastest Corvette ever produce by GM. Only C6 Z06 and C6 ZR1 that can match this car performance in both tracks and straight line acceleration.

When this car first came out in 1989, they said it will never became a production car. Only prototypes. But after production version of ZR-1 give a great success to GM, they decide to release Snake Skinner as a tuned option for someone who think ZR-1 is not fast enough. Only 83 cars that fitted with this factory tuned option. One of them sold at Barrett-Jackson for about $176,000.00 USD in 2009.

A very rare C4 Corvette. Only 83 produced around 1990 to 1991. Featured lighter chassis and Walker Dyno Max Mufflers produced 475 hp @ 6800 rpm. It named Snake Skinner because it's so fast and faster than Dodge Viper.
0-60 mph is 3.6 sec
0-100 mph is 7.8 sec
1/4 mile is 11.8 @ 123 mph
0-100-0 is 12.8 sec.
Top Speed: 192 mph.
Some of executives think it's too crazy to become a production cars so, they decide to make this car as tuned option not factory option.
