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.

Wtf does that have to do with anything?

Some cars have independant times some dont, Simple as that.

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!


User avatar

saxy  6y ago

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


User avatar

uptownfunker  6y ago

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

uptownfunker  6y ago

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.


User avatar

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  9y ago

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


User avatar

Аnon  9y ago

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  9y ago

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.
