Default How racing inspired the design of the C6

Check out Jason Giacchino's recent homepage article which shows exactly how racing has inspired the C6, specifically the ZR1 and the Z06. What else would you like to see in the street version that only the race cars currently have?

Definitely tops my wish list.

Especially if chrome wheels are included in the package.

I can say the design was strictly MASSERATI!!Saw one on the highway the other day I thought was a c6 from the headlights until it got close enough....then the side view and rear end were almost dead ringers for the c6!
