    2008/09 Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1

    The latest Car and Driver has an article on the $100K production supercar Corvette.
    600+ hp and they think unlike the regular vettes, it will qualify for the gas guzzler tax.
    Wish I could afford one...
    Wow!!!!

    Just ordered a Benz E550 4Matic Black/Black...loaded.
    Looked at the 'Vette, however, needed 4 doors.
    This particular 'Vette is very, very impressive.

    It looks the same. I'd rather have a Ford GT.

    The ZR1 is the most expensive and most powerful production Corvette in history, with a price of about 100 grand ($110,000 for the loaded 4LZ trim level) and an estimated 620 horsepower at 6500 rpm and 600 pound-feet of torque at 4000 rpm from its supercharged LS9 6.2-liter V-8.

    It is the first factory-built Corvette to feature forced induction, and it will also be the first Corvette to top 200 mph off the showroom floor. The idea that such a Vette could exist is certifiably bonkers.



    If you parked one next to a normal C6 or Z06 you'd see the differences.
    I remember when the C6 generation came out and folks claimed it looked like the C5s.
    Once you put the two together, you saw a lot of differences.

    Way to much money to be spending on a car but it still looks sweet.

    We working slobs can't imagine what it would be like to drop the check down for one of those rockets!
    I'll stick with my 06 MINI Cooper JCW convertible...

    Sweet.
    Although I like fast cars my insurance doesn't.
    Maybe, just maybe I will get something to restor (probably a Mustang) when I retire and I have paid off my current hunting vehicle.

    Come to think of it, wonder how I would get a Dog box strapped to the back of a Stang and how it would do in the mud.
    Better keep the F-150 for stuff like that and to pull the boat.

    A truck is always a good choice, and you are safer in it than a car

    I'm looking into and '08 one of these
