Awwww hellllll my bro's seen one of these and he says they look WICKED.

Sorry, but he saw the standard one, not the Z06.

But coming back to the topic, this car looks awesome, and, gong by the quoted figures, is DAMN fast.
Now where did those stupid little italians with their puny, high-revving engines go???!!!!

Vettes have always appealed to me. Heres why = With the Z06' price : performance ratio, you really cant go wrong. It gives you almost supercar performance at like a fraction of the price. Add superb ride quality, everyday driveability and reliability to that equation. I knew a couple of guys in boston using their Z06s (previous gen) as daily drivers.

The only grudge that most had against teh Vette was the interiors design and quality. I guess thats been addressed in the latest gen.

But the oversteer is vicious...and they hated track days.
