18 posts in this topic

I JUST SAW THAT IN THE CAR AND DRIVER MAGAZINE TEST THE 2006 CORVETTE Z06 AND HIT THE 60MPH IN 3.6 SECS AND THE 1/4 MILE IN 11.7 SECS WITH THAT SPECS I THINK THAT THE CORVETTE Z06 CAN EASILY BEAT THE DODGE VIPER,FORD GT AND FERRARI F430 WHAT DO YOU THINK' Edited by superstreet

In my mind, it already has. It's under 100 grand, and beats cars that cost 5, 6 times as much. And apparently it handles like a dream. CAR & DRIVER of all people said it's great. Z06 is the winna.

the vette wins due to its tremendous value and i'd bet all dynamically it might even win. And I'm a HUGE GT fan.

I think it probably will beat them in a race. The GT might slightly beat it in acceleration, but it's also possible that the conditions were superb when the tested the GT 0-60 in 3.3. MT got 0-60 in 3.5, so that's pretty close, and the 1/4 mile is really what matters since 0-60 comes so fast.

OMG - These are sports cars children, you know road course cars, LeMans, Sebring......ring any bells yet ???????? THese are not stupid little 1/4 mile cars that have little further use, I dont think the Corvette was designed to prove itself at local so called "speedways". Dont know much about the replicas road worthyness but its original already proved itself decades ago. The Corvette has proved itself for the last 4 years. S7 just doesnt have it going on and the Viper has proved that it can disturb more tire barriers than Nascar laps run under caution. hoy boy, a real magazine shoot out :unsure:

your totaly right.

but the vette has it beat its smaller and more agility.

i think a lap around Nurinburg germany

Its funny how the z06 is a "supercar" it doesnt look like one its more of a sleeper.

Yep, no matter how fast the Z06 is, it's still a hyped-up sports car. The GT, on the other hand, is a rare supercar with pedigree. Both excellent vehicles, just in different classes.

I was just slightly razzled when I came to this topic thinking the GT was on the track turning laps with Corvette and company, instead I see a bunch of talk about 0-60 times and that the 1/4 mile was the "real" test :rolleyes: yes indeed my reaction was "OMG".

empowah - Supercar is identified mainly by styling it seems or perhaps it needs to be midengined, or perhaps it is a price tag. Im not really sure. Under these unstandardized rules I would assume the Ferrari Enzo is a Supercar but the Maranello is a sportscar ? This would mean the S7 is a "Supercar" while the Corvette is a sportscar, yet they both includeing Maranello compete in GT1 the former GTS catagory. This is all so open to interpretation. SO where does all this leave the Modena, Aston Martins, Viper and ___ fill in the blank car?

So while we may not want to think of the Corvette as a "Supercar" it surely has proven to be one and one of the most "Supercars".

Now for "pedigree"

The Corvette has a pedigree, the GT is a clone bred from frozen semen and has a pedigree with a 40 year void in it. Thereby not entirely recognized by the "Supercars Breeders and Judges Association of the World". That would be SB&JAW to those in the know. :CG_all:

I could give two hoots about what Corvette does in 0-60 or the "big" 1/4 miler. So long as it keeps sales high and the rest of the pack in the chase on the "real" tracks it will remain a Supercar of high pedigree.

the Corvette Z06 (427) has managed to B!tch slap just about any sports car costing less than half a million dollars. And yet it costs $69 grand. Insult to injury. I love it. Rub that salt into Ferraris' wound. Now ask yourself: how fast would cars like the Enzo & Ford GT & Merceliago be without the Z06's presance? How abouot 650HP Mercedes Benz sedans? Do you think they would eve even exist if it was not for the fact that a $50,000 car spanks their $80,000 cars. Competition is a great thing. Edited by Sixty8panther
