    That body, in that color, is pure sex.

    Great power numbers, but .87g? Its still a straight line rocket. The teggy pulls .88 from the factory. NSX .93. Hell, the viper even pulls a .96.

    There are tuned civics out there pulling 1.0+, you can't tell me that a room full of engineers can't make the vette handle better. Maybe its a production cost thing. But with the new vetts being priced over 106k, its time it becomes more than a straight line acceleration machine.

    I just went to the site, fully loaded, the 2009 corvette 3zr-zr1 is $119,270.

    ...except it will destroy just about anything on a road course. Don't just be a stat whore, believe me this handles far better than an integra from the factory.

    also wondering about the brakes, they said from Ferrari's, does GM own a part of Ferrari now?:eek:

    although the vette is awesome, give me 119K and I'll be searching for a used Mine's R34.

    Probably a patent thing. Couldn't make them so they had to purchase them from ferrari.


    What if this car could pull 1.0+ in a corner? It would absolutely dominate today's market. Being fast is awesome, but if you have to rely on sheer horsepower to get you through a race via straights and hold on to your ass tire burning cornering, its all for not.

    Not to say I wouldn't have a total fucking blast flogging one of these things.
