    seriously this thing is going to become a legend. Supercar performance, american attitude done right, and a great value, especially when depreciation kicks in.

    I think it's a great car, but remember, it's a corvette and produced by GM

    It will never become a legend

    Remember there are other street cars with 500+ HP, that will have an advantage, they arent a mass produced Piece of plastic.

    Impressive performance yes, but hardly the baddest street car ever

    How many of them are affordable to a lot of people. If you give me a price of a 500+ HP car that is in a normal person's price range, then I'll shut up, but hell, not everyone can spend 200k on a supercar.

    btw i agree that the new z06 will be legendary to an extent, or at least the LS7 will. I'm just saying its way out of most everyone's price range, and the people who can afford them can usually also afford something much more expensive as well.

    I am a normal person and I wouldnt call 70-80k in the normal persons price range.
    Its a big engine in a regular car.

    Viper gives you the same thing.

    Trust me when you say baddest street car ever produced you didnt specifiy a price range, so the statement isnt even close to being true...

    When it comes to bad ass street cars

    Agreed, but you don't have to be a rich bastard to own one of these cars. If you save up some money and make payments on it, it could become affordable. In my opinion the ZO6 looks better than the Viper and could compete in every category for quite a bit less money.

    Looking at the HP wars that are going on right now and where they could potentially go, I don't think it's safe to assume anything with 500hp is going to be a legend let alone the baddest street car ever.

    Actualy they are. :mamoru:

    and you can talk about your cousins, uncles, friends ____ that makes 800hp, but none of them will even be nearly as balenced or reliable as the Z06.

    as for not being a legend because it's GM. :rofl: One needs only to look at history to see a ridiculous number of "legendary" GM cars, some of those less than 10 years old. The GN, ZR1 and Impala SS just to name a few.

    you fools, when I say STREET i meant out in the streets, actually likely to get a run with one. Because its a GM and because they will become closer to affordable I think this. I don't really count lambo's, p-cars, ferrari's etc etc with carbon chassis because you rarely run into them at your local meet, this car is gonna be the big dog on the street for years and years to come.

    I see Ferraris, Lambos, Porsche, Vipers etc on the street all the time. I have even heard a person claim to see a McLaren in this area which is possible. So your statement about it being the baddest street car ever produced is not accurate, since there is bigger and better.. Funny how you exclude a mile long list of cars since you dont see them :rofl:
    Funny also how you say street at first and then talking about running them at the track.

    Again, its impressive in its performance, but hardly top dog as you say.

    Funny how people still insist an 80k is affordable to the average person :mamoru:

    There is quite a bit of Carbon Fiber in the C6 Z06. You do realize that this car weighs less than the Ferarri F430 and has almost the same curb weight as the $450K Carerra GT?

    The C6 Z06 Outperforms Ferarris, Lambos, Porsches, and Vipers. The Enzo probably has the upper hand, but thats about it. And it stickers below $70K. Give it 2-3 years and reap the benefits of depreciation.

    Aside from the badging on the new Z06, it looks like a stock vette. IMO that's not a bad thing, but not a good thing either. The strong points of this car reside under the hood and price tag, not it's looks. Cars like Ferarri 430, Lambos, and Porsche GT just look like amazing. And they should for the $$$.

    Except cast block/wet sump.
    pulley+exhaust+tune = 638whp.
    For $22,000 less than the Corvette, The Mustang Shelby gt500 with a few modifications can produce 133 more hp than the corvette z06.
