better then the 2002 ZO6!

Discussion in '1993 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe ZR1' started by ilovefastcars, Aug 9, 2002.

  1. I think that this is way better then the 2002 zo6: its faster,nicer, great hp and torque personally i'd rather own this then the zo6 althought the zo6 is a very nice car as well.<!-- Signature -->
     
  2. Re: better then the 2002 ZO6!

    actually no this is not faster, but it is still a nice car... (z06 does 0-60 in 3.9secs compared to 4.9secs)
     
  3. Re: better then the 2002 ZO6!

    Looks, i'd have to agree(just my opinion). faster? mmmmm no. But not the slowest car ever by any means//
     
  4. Re: better then the 2002 ZO6!

    ok so the three most powerful 'Vettes were the 1967 435HP/427, the 1993 405HP ZR1 and the new 405HP ZO6 (IMO)...the ZR-1 is kickass, and would easily lay waste to (or keep up with) most performance cars of today, including the ZO6...gotta love the minds that are working at the Bowling Green, Kentucky Corvette plant!!

    btw..the ZO6 label first debuted in 1963, FYI

    Ohhh christ guys you would never notice the difference on the street.
     
  6. Re: better then the 2002 ZO6!

    well i dont know about zo6s being faster i have a 93 zr1 coupe(but mines a brighter red) and i got it up to 188 mph!!!! and the accel was a bit slower than the z06 but im no professional driver so i dont know. No after market products accept for a sport hood, and a small camp kill yourself decal on the bottom left hand corner of my window,
     
  7. Re: better then the 2002 ZO6!

    nah it not faster champ.
     
  8. Re: better then the 2002 ZO6!

    I don't really know about that, both the ZR-1 and Z06 are great cars. I would like one of both. The ZR-1 will always be the King of the Hill. A race between the two would be very close. I personally would rather have the LT-5 out of the ZR-1.
     
  9. Re: better then the 2002 ZO6!

    i know i wouldnt know the difference
     
  10. Re: better then the 2002 ZO6!

    Difference in what?
     
  11. Re: better then the 2002 ZO6!

    Between the 2 cars.
     
  12. Re: better then the 2002 ZO6!

    First off Z06 does not do 0-60 n 3.9Seconds
    and the most powerful vette to date was the 69 ZL-1
     
  13. Re: better then the 2002 ZO6!

    actually i think the '67 L-88 is the most powerful vette. It was rated at only 430 hp, but actually could pump out much more than 500! It was rated lower to discourage the public from considering it, as it cost much more than the supposedly 5 horsepower more 427/435.
     
  14. Re: better then the 2002 ZO6!

    The most powerfull corvette is the Corvette ZL1 (60's-70's)
    550hp 0-100km/h=4seconds Topspeed=330km/h
    Exactly the same engine had also the Camaro only difference; topspeed:325km/h
     
  15. Re: better then the 2002 ZO6!

    the 1967 vette with 435HP, would have a have (about) 348HP, because after 1972 they changed it to net HP, so the 2002 ZO6 has the most HP in any vette.
     
  16. Re: better then the 2002 ZO6!

    Corvettes never have been renound for their drag capabilities. The independent suspension is heavy compared to a solid rear axel (In the actual drag race world). Therefore the comparison would have to be on handling, where the technology and 50/50 weight distribution of the Z06 is by far superior. The 2002 Corvette is almost 400 lbs lighter as well.

    Not to mention it is far more beautiful.

     
  17. Re: better then the 2002 ZO6!

    i think Corvettes r well suited 4 the strip. They r LIGHT cars with a powerful engine and other componits. What else do u need for the strip?
     
  18. Re: better then the 2002 ZO6!

    This car was the "quickest" Vette ever made until the new Z06. I do own a ZR1 and it is very quick and easier for a novice driver to handle. The Z06 has stupid electronic crap that limits your shifting and certain RPM's and it is very expensive to upgrade with aftermarket bolt ons. I HATE COPMUTERS IN CARS
