Dont freak out guys, I still have my SRT8 GC. I had this ordered before I bought the Jeep.Picked it up last night.
It pulls so hard from 3500-7000 it is amazing.

The little rear spoiler thing is taller, its bad ass, the air ducts in front of the rear fenders, its sex on wheels, air scoop in front bumper, wheels are different, some body panels are carbon fiber, interior is different, motor is 7.0L, slightly wider body... i think i covered most of it.

It's much faster than you. ;)

The C5 Z06's were easier to distinguish from the non-Z06's because they had the ducting for the brakes, but the C6 Z06's are not as easy to recognize. The rims are a pretty good indication, as well as the hood scoop. I think the Z06 has a badge on the front fender too.

I like when Top Gear let the Stig take the new Z06 around the power lap. The audience gasped when he posted the time of 1:22.xx. The brits couldn't believe how fast it was. Great video to DL and watch.

Very nice.

When I was in FL I rented a C6 Vert and I loved it. I thought that had tons of power. I couldn't imagine the Z06.

Zo6 was comin hm from the track in vegas and i was kinda bothering him as he drove as slow as (it seemed ) possible when finnally he step sided the clutch and @ 65mph it went sideways on the freeway!! what was crazy is that turning on a long 1/4 left bank .he took off and started loosing the back end.. i had a lil more roll on him, he couldnt get away from my blown cherokee through the turn ,and on my honor i push that same corner 10 mph faster ! every time he hit the gas it looked like he was stabin it just to much power and not enough grip!!!

Congrats on an awesome ride. That car also has an amazing support forum (I'm just not sure if I'm allowed to name it tho). In any event, that is truly a "Super Car"!

I hung up my fifefighting gear last year (after 12 years)in order to attend to my real company(plumbing) which has grown to 20 trucks.Its a full time paperwork job for me.

I use my SRT8 GC as a daily driver.I plan to have Arizona Speed do a turbo on the Jeep when they are ready.

Great looking ride. I sold mine about 8 months ago and made 10k more then I paid for it. I sold it because it was more of a dust collector then anything. I have two babys and they just wouldn't fit in it. But yeah fastest stock car I have ever owned.

I got a C5 Z06 and I have been dying to get into a new one. Is this your first vette? If not, how does it compare to the previous.

A preproduction mule with LS9/blown 6.2 put down 663rw on a chassis dyno a few mos. back. The same car ran easy high ten second passes as well. Actual flywheel HP of the production model will be at or over 700. They are currently testing it at the Ring. Imagine the faces of the German/Italian engineers when the new record holder ends up being a chebby. LOL.

Yep, it will be available in 10/08...Z07 "Blue devil" A buddy of mine just put 1,000 down to order one through the dealership this weekend. We were in the vettes today, the Z06 is awesome I can only imagine what the Z07 will be capable of.

You could easily surpass that with a C5/C6 and a turbosystem and save a lot of money.

Yes, and by the same logic, I could take a $5k Fox Mustang, put $25 into it an run 8s. Ergo a C5/C6 will never be a blue devil. This is of course ignoring the rest of the improvements between the base and top dog vette.
Regardless running 10s off the showroom floor with full factory warranty is pretty badass.

you could buy a trailblazer ss and sts turbo system and save lots of money instead of the srt8... but its still not the same

3rd Vette for me 89,2002 Z06, and now the O7 Z06. This car will spank the 02and I felt the 02 was a great car. It pulled strong and was a consistant 12.50 car stock.Traction was an issue in the 02 and will be in the 07.But the 07 pulls much harder.

Of course it's not the same, but then that wouldn't give him a chance to brag about his Vette.
