The Z06 has to feel like A jet 0-60 2.9 seconds.
I wouldn't doubt if you put wings on it,that it would come off the ground.

My model was quite old so the technology was pretty outdated. My Bose speakers were terrible and there was never enough bass. I was really upset because I also missed the Bluetooth integration by one model year. I do think the seats were a bit more comfortable, but the quality of the leather didn't look as good as the vette.

I always felt that it swayed quite a bit past 80. My 6MT also came with the Sport tuned suspension, 19" wheels and tires so they were slightly larger than the regular model. But with the vette's wider tires and frame, it just feels safer. I guess it would just feel kind of strange to buy one again after having a vette. If I need to haul people, I have an SUV for that.

I upgraded from a G37 Sport. Trust me I thought the G was a sporty car...it's not. You will be pleased. Congrats on the purchase.

Actually 3.3 for the 7-sp, 3.8 for the 7-sp Stingray..per GM numbers, We keep up pretty good.

That astonished me. The Stingray is only .5 second slower to 60???? I'm still waiting for mine to arrive, I guess I didn't fully realize how fast the Stingray is!

The C7 is absurdly fast (I'm coming from a V6 Mustang, not the fastest thing but still decent at 300hp at the crank). The main issue I have is that it's so well planted and relatively quiet at ridiculous speeds that you don't realize you're getting to felony-level speeding territory by leaning on the gas pedal a little bit. Basically if you want the car to sound and FEEL like it's going fast, you either have to hoon it by keeping it in low gears while doing sane speeds or you have to break the law in a very substantial way.

Most folks don't realize that if they get caught doin' triple digits they are going for a ride in the back of a police car and their baby is getting towed.

Not to bad.Many states see the commissioner get out on your own reconssiance.I haven't heard when they tow your car that they keep it,
Not for reckless driving.Go from comm office to impound lot and away you
Go.

Exactly, I was having fun on an on ramp to umm a highway in Mexico thinking cool that was fun, must be doing 90ish, I was doing 110. I look in the rear view and a pimped out mustang GT was trying to hang.
