ZO6!

20 posts in this topic

Hopefully someone is able to get it up to 200 MPH, that'd be sweet.

If you look at this picture (the one I used for my sig) you can see the license plate says 505 198 which I assume means 505HP + 198 MPH:

Yes, yes. And I'd like to add that the color of that Z06, Northie, is amazing...

I agree, I hadn't seen it in that color before. It's stunning. Omg I want one and a Confederate Hellcat parked beside it.

I THINK THE Z06 IS FASTER THAN 198MPH B)

I think it's much faster than that, extra 105 hp and it's only 12 mph faster? I don't know, it's damn cool though, 198 is super fast anyways

I could never quite understand why the vette could never surpass 200mph...all I gathered was that it was drag limited...Isn't the vette pretty aerodynamic? If the new M5 can surpass 200 mph, and it is a much heavier car, with about the same hp and less trq, then what's the deal? Then again, it does have a 7-spd...but that doesn't have to do with drag...

I saw a CTS in that color the other night, it looked good. Hopefully they offer it again. I really think it made the CTS look a little better, the color really went well with the lines.

a cars weight does not affect theoretical top speed. Aerodynamics and gearing do.

good point...all weight has to do with is the momentum...once you git er goin then you have nothing to worry about...but the 5 series has always had a pretty low drag coefficient (I know the e39 had .31 I believe)...what is the vette's?

I think the Z06 is .31 and the base Vette is .29, which I think is mostly due to the downforce on the Z06, and the extra hood scoops and side scoops probably hurt it as well.

it probably has to do witht he fact that the M5 is a DOHC so it makes mroe of it power at higher rpms...I am pretty sure the Z06 is drag limited but even if it is in higher rpms it wouldn't be pushing as much as the M5 would be in the same range...
