0-100 is a regular C6 is 4.2 seconds whereas the Z06 is 3.7 seconds ...
they are very different cars on the road .. its kind of like a BMW 650 compared to the M6 ...

I mean, when your talking "corvette". the ZR1 is the impractical devil while the Hennessey is his trident!
anyway, its like the BMW 650 compared to the M6, both fast, but ones not fast enough .
Agreed ZR1 & Z06 are best of Corvette line up, but they do come with a price tag and are in a different league than the base C6.

Spotted the same copper coloured C6 at babulnath half an hour ago. The car passed really slow and thus could not hear the exhaust note. Must admit that the car seemed really clean and very well maintained but the chrome rims were were a little too shiny though. Just wished he would have revved her a lil.

Spotted the silver 'Vette outside the KalaGhoda festival. Unfortunately, whoever owns it now has plastered "CHIMP" all over it. Pics added to the opening post of the thread.

This is a friends car. Chimp is a brand created by him selling funky Tshirts. He had a stall at the kalaghoda fair just next to where the car was parked. He likes using the car to promote his brand and frankly I think it's a great idea. He's had the car for a long time now, unfortunately most of those years have been at a workshop in opera house. Has ended up spending quite a bomb on repairs but finally she's running well now.

Yup, saw this silver vette at the Kalaghoda Fest, right next to the chimp stand. Unfortunately, it looked pretty worn out from the exteriors. It definately needs an exterior detailing job & refurbishment of those alloys!

Really? The alloys actually looked new / recently touched up when i saw it!

I wonder if the fiberglass(?) body of the ZR1 makes it harder to repair dings etc?

In that case, it was probably just dirt & grime on those alloys perhaps. But yes, the body does need some TLC.

Oh ! Not aware of the ex Mehmood car.
The stingray you mention is the orangish copper car right?

It used to be silver with the original owner. The second owner had opened it up to restore it and was in Astar (orangish copper colour).
