Interesting match up since I have some experience with both. The 0-100 km/h for the Z06 should be 4.8 and the 0-200 km/h for the Mustang should be 15.9. Use FastestLaps acceleration calculator and to convert from mph to km/h use Georg\'s calculator and it should confirm this. I haven\'t checked it yet, but my extrapolations are usually close. The Corvette runs out of 5th gear (6th is too tall and used for fuel economy) and the Mustang is governed, so neither is as good at top speed as it could be.
