Do you like Corvette Z06

saw brand new black Z06 !!! I think it's really beautifull and in future if they improve interrior that would be one sweet ride!!! i would take z06 over a viper (old one). Plus it has some mad performance, like 1-G in Cornering( dunno what the hell is that but it can't be bad) plus the car i pretty much light and handles pretty good, i say it's pure Racing car. What do you say?

Z06 is a very nice car, i like it more than viper too [the new viper is ugly IMO , but performance wise it's good]
oh, G is the pulling force that gravity appleis on you, so 1G while cornering is like if you time your wight by 1 in newtons, that's how much force you'll experiance, which also indicates that Z06 can take corners pertty fast [the main cuz is it's low centre of gravity] .......

I personally think the Corvette is a great overall car. I mean it's got ample power, handling, and nice interior. However, I can't stand those V8 engines.

I was born to love only one type of engine....Inline-6
I wouldn't mind driving that car, but given the choice, E36 M3 !!!

The new Z06 405hp V8 (all aluminum) is a killer engine!

Just look at what Lingenfelter can do to a Vette & Viper

My brother's best friend has a yellow Z06... One day last summer he threw me the keys so I can take it out by myself for a while. I was HELLA IMPRESSED. I honestly couldn't believe it was a domestic car. It handled and braked like a true European Exotic, but torque and power scream U.S.A. The thing that really disturbed me was that I felt like I was gonna be arrested just sitting at a red light... COP MAGNET.

I've always loved Corvettes, especially the Z06's.... its the only domestic car i'm really fond of.

now i prefer a porsche 911 turbo. the Z06 seems to be growing in size every new release.

the only bad thing i've heard about Z06 is that they start to rattle after 2yrs of normal driving... i guess its the crappy plastic interior they put on most domestics....
