  1. quit hitting on him by being so complimentous
     
  2. waay overdone. especially those side scoops. i dont like anything thats shiny on it
     
  3. Plan unfolded

    moving on
     
  4. only car designers are allowed to have opinions about looks
     
  5. mind your own business needle dick <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  6. well I design & sell park architecture for my career but I've been working on a car sketch for the past several weeks, so..........

    I'm going to go out on a limb and say your opinion sucks balls
     
  7. You are such a wanker.
     
  8. okay this account has to be hacked. there is no way someone is that stupid
     
  9. I thought the Z06 was supposed to be a hotter version of the C7 for the street. This looks like a C7R. How much is that front splitter going to cost to be replaced when someone ruins it on a curb?
     
  10. it's a Corvette.


    Someone WILL ruin it on a curb.
     
  11. Lyme disease ate some of his already previously damaged brain.

    Its all him
     
  12. i'm actually not joking. i hope it's some troll picked up the account and he doesn't literally have brain damage or anything. i can't argue with and make fun of someone with brain damage
     
  13. wow antipimpage is sooo mean
     
  14. The same guys in this forum who regard the C7's interior as cheap/crappy/substandard consider Nissan GT-R's interior very high quality and worthy of a high end sportscar.
     
  15. whilst i don't agree that the GTR's interior is supercar quality - it just isn't - I'd be willing to bet it's better built.
     
  16. I've been in both, the GT-R has a better interior. I think it's good enough for the car and Nissan obviously put their budget into other parts of the car.

    I can't imagine that GM's development costs came anywhere near the GT-R's considering the parts they use have been available for some time now and all they really did was add a supercharger.
     
  17. the gtr is pretty shitty too, but at least the ergonomics are right.
     
  18. the ergonomics in this corvette are actually alright. I'm slightly shorter and the C5's and C6's are basically made for those of over 2 meters. the C7 isn't but its just too ugly.
     
  19. Care to be more specific? I really don't see anything horribly wrong with it.
     
  20. the older one was better

    2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Can Hit 60 MPH in Under 3 Seconds.

    When Chevrolet announced the Corvette Z06 earlier this year, we knew it would be fast, but did you expect numbers like these?

    Chevrolet says that a fresh-from-the-factory Z06 ‘vette can hit 60 mph from a stand still in just 2.95 seconds. That time comes with the eight-speed automatic, while seven-speed manual equipped models can do the sprint in 3.2 seconds.

    The 1/4 mile times don’t disappoint either as the eight-speed did a 10.95-second time, while the 7-speed manual clocked in a 11.2. Both models featured identical 127 MPH trap speeds.

    The Z06 also boasts some impressive braking and handling numbers, stopping from 60 mph in just 99.6 feet. According to GM, that’s the best braking performance of any production car they have ever tested. The Corvette Z06 also achieves 1.2 g in lateral acceleration, besting the Corvette’s previous top performance of 1.13 g.

    A 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine lies under the hood of the Z06, making 650 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque, helping deliver those impressive speeds. These numbers were all achieved with the option Z07 performance package which delivers the most downforce of any production car GM has ever tested.

    Chevrolet also mentioned that the new Z06 is a whole second faster than the old ZR1 around the Milford Road Course, but these numbers point to a car that’s as fast as supercars that cost almost twice as much as the ‘vette. For example, an Audi R8 does the 0-60 time in 3.2 seconds and costs $188,995, while the Z06 costs just $78,995. Of course, there’s more to sports cars than just straight-line speeds, but so far the Z06 seems like a great value for the performance.
