Enjoy your car.

If someone needs a title like "supercar" to make them feel better about their choice, you'll likely never be satisfied because the goal-posts move every model year. That's the marketing game.

I posted in this thread to possibly read objective comparisons about fine automotive specimens (that I admit I will never afford) and how our amazing piece of GM kit really stacks up. It seems to have devolved into silliness. Unsubscribing because this has become nonsense in many ways.

Carry on...

I think a Super Z fits that statement. You can get ZR1 power levels and more and there are many ways to get there.

With mods to your C7 Z06.
Many many of them on the forum. These cars will do 200 mph and more
and run 9's and 10's doing 130-150 mph depends how much you want to spend.
That is a SUPER Z! When you do that on pump gas I call that a "Supercar".

Much like say a Hennessy car which is build put together and tuned but anyone can do it. The tune being the most important part!
