How bout that Z06

I haven't had a chance to drive one (probably a good thing), but if anyone who has would like to share about how they like it, I would be very interested.

My son has one, it's a real hoot to drive, and it pulls pretty hard. It's an 03 with 405hp, the new Zo6's with 505 must be a real blast. Check this You Tube video for a ZO6 spanking a Ferarri F430

not trying to sound like a jerk but.. the video only proved that money and poor driving skills don't make you fast... ferrari was way late on power take up after apex. the vette driver was also taking alot more chances then the 430 driver...the 430 driver needs to learn apexs and the track ..sebring is very technical..

True, but you can't ignore the way the Vette walked away time after time from the F430 on the straights.

Wasn't it the Syclone Chevy truck that also beat a Ferrari in the 1/4 mile?

hence the earlier power take up after apex... ferrari made 480 horse to 505?

4.3 liter to 7 liters torque being a big factor.. the 430 needed to be revving and up on the cams not the way that guy was driving it...

not saying the zo6 is not a great car.. i would buy one tommorow.. but the 430 is way to cool to drive.

a freind out qualified a 430 and two vipers in his t1 corvette last year at the scca runoffs.

Then you have the price diffential. It just chaps the Ferarri camp that a $70K American sports car can wax the legendary Ferrari.
