This car USED to weigh 3131 lb as a matter of fact, but in the later years it would be heavier assuming the magazines have ordered options, etc, that made the car heavier. The heaviest I found for a C6Z was 3320 lb.

This might not be a confirmed magazine run, but the C6Z, to be honest, is almost automatically a 10-second car:

No, @saxy but the 0-110mph/0-180kph time sure wasn't listed!

You know that acceleration is not linear right? Assuming you know what linear means


User avatar

uptownfunker  2y  

0-180 kph = half 0-100 mph (7.6 s)/half 0-120 mph (10.4 s) = 0-110 mph: 9.0 s


User avatar

0-200 kph = half 0-120 mph (9.3 s)/half 0-130 mph (11.0 s) = 0-125 mph: 10.15 s

130Bhp more, and 700Lbs lighter has its advantage weither you want to bring up tyres and tech or not.

It isn't that amazing that it beat an f1 considering the f40 from 1987 smashed both

tires are a lot less durable now and a much stickier. That's the difference of a lot. Plus the F1 had no downforce and too much power to corner.

@Apathy
Can't really go wrong with either a GS or Z06, as long as your first mod is a tire swap. Seriously, the Goodyears on the C6Z and GS are crap for the track. Frankly, I'm amazed the Z06 did so well in skidpad tests and such in magazines.

I'd say go with the Grand Sport. It's easier, less expensive and less risky to mod, and you can get a better deal on a low-mileage example. The only reason I bought a Z06 was because I knew the guy who was selling it and I got the "friend rate". But stock for stock, it's almost impossible to beat a clean used C6Z.

But whatever you do, don't pull the trigger until after the C7 is officially on the market. When that happens, it's pretty much guaranteed that C6 values are going to drop like rocks and dealers will practically be giving them away, though the 427 Vert will likely retain its value better than anything else. I mean, you can already get relatively low-mile(under 10k)ZR1's for less than $80k, so just imagine the deals you could get on a Grand Sport once Stingrays are on the street.

@Apathy, Wow, GrandSports are very close to the track performance of a Z06. VIR lap-times are especially close ...tough choice indeed! You can't really lose with either. My advise would be: drive both! :)


User avatar

Flabernat  4y  

@CoolShirtGuy, Exaclty my thoughts. It's tough to beat a C6 Corvette, especially the Z06(...and ZR!) ;)


User avatar

GS is definitely a bigger performance bargain than Z06, especially if you don't need to overcome complexes with the size of your motor


User avatar

Shaggy  4y  

The Corvette is a great high end performance car bargain, it has everything a sports car buyer wants, great road manners, decent fuel economy, reasonable price (for what it is), good reliability, raw power, nimble handling, excellent brakes, and blistering performance, what's not to like? It's one reason the model has been with us for 60 years.

I am torn between the C6Z and the Z51 or Grand Sport C6 with the LS3.

The Z06 is lighter, but I can get a newer and lower mileage LS3 C6 for the same or less money.

Also, the LS3 is incredibly mod friendly. I have seen full bolt on LS3 cars outrun stock C6Z's.

Right now I'm leaning towards an early Grand Sport with low miles.

@American Classics Rule

Those cars will never be approved.
They are not accepted under the site's rules.

You're wasting your time.

Thankfully it only takes me seconds to delete all of the damage you attempt to do.

PS: I'll bet you I can beat any of your cars on Forza. Any class, any track, any racing type.:P

@coolshirt

Not only are they a bargain price but the service/repair costs are the same as a normal car excluding a few high end parts like carbon rotors.

In a few years I will be looking to buy a C7 Z06 or ZR1. I could afford a used gallardo which would be a far more rare car where I am from and get a lot of attention. But I just couldn't bring myself to waste the money it costs to service a gallardo. I am willing to buy nice things but I don't waste money and the ridiculous service costs on a lambo are something I think are a waste.

@Flabernat
The Z06 is the performance bargain of the century when you get right down to it, especially if you want a track-day toy that won't devour your wallet. Throw on some Brembos, swap out the seats and put some decent rubber on it, and you've got a car that very few would be able to touch around a racetrack. And if you want ZR1 power, you can a supercharger kit from Katech that'll take you up to 700hp for just under $10k. If you can pick one up for $43k, you could end up with a car that'll take a ZR1's lunch money for less than $70k.

But I will say that the ZR1's road manners are something a Z06 can't really match, not without those Magnaride shocks. Those, the carbon-ceramic brakes and 638hp with a factory warranty very nearly convinced me to go for a ZR1. But in the end I decided that it was just too much cash to blow on something that would be a downgrade compared to my current car.

Hopefully the C7 variant will have me singing a different tune when it arrives.
