C6 Z06 = GTR Killer

Discussion in 'American Cars' started by Spyder757, Jul 17, 2008.

  1. The Z06 is faster in the straightline. The GTR is faster around a track. By outperform, I always mean a track. The thing with bends.

    Cherish that handycam vid, that'll be the Z06 crowning glory against the GTR.

  2. zr1 takes care of it at the track (not to mention makes the GTR look like a one legged whore in a straight line)
  3. Absolutely correct.

    Am I wrong?
  4. It makes more sense to compare the GT-R to the Z06, where the GTR is the faster of the 2, and then compare the ZR1 to the GT-R V-Spec, which we know little about right now. I'd be willing to bet that the V-Spec will be faster than the ZR1 anywhere except on a 1/4 mile.
  5. the z06 is three years old. guess it makes more sense to you to compare the z06 to the r34 then?
  6. Who brought the ZR1 into? How preditable are you guys, pulling out the ole ZR1 card.

    I thought this thread was about the "C6 Z06", the "GTR killer" ... or has it suddenly become a pussy and needs its bigger brother ZR1 to fight its battles.

    Yes the ZR1 is faster around a track. Too bad it has nothing to do with the original point raised in this thread.
  7. original point was that the gtr (baby veyron LOL) was the z06's (a three year old car no less) #%!@ in a straight line highway race. and it is.
  8. baby veryron, lol i still laugh at the bastard who said that. the gtr is more like an even uglier, fatter version of the 350z
  9. Well if that video is the pinnacle of performance benchmarking techniques. Good for the Z06.
  10. Its all relative. I can imagine why its not popular with the GODZILLA fans.
  11. Fatter yes. However personally i would say its the less uglier of the two. Still ugly.

    However I love the R34 GTR shape and most people think thats ugly anyway.

  12. Just like all the articles, reviews showing the GTR outlapping a Z06 in the media. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/tongue.gif"></A>
  13. Damn Im like the only one that actually thinks the GT-R looks real nice. And, I'm a Vette fan boy o_O
  14. I am not the one that started the comparison.
  15. Comparing the GT-R to the Z06 makes sense because they're both semi-track-oriented. Comparing the V-Spec to the ZR1 doesn't make sense because the V-Spec is very track oriented and the ZR1 ia a GT. The V-Spec should be compared to the GT3 RS and the ZR1 should be compared to the 911 turbo.
  16. If stereotyping a group of people is the only way that you can support your arguement then you probably are wrong.
  17. Shut up 2nd account twat
  18. If you just wanted to drag race, why bother with the new GT-R when an R32,33 or 34 would be just as good?
  19. For most, it is not a sense of patriotism, but in general bang for buck. Take cars, readily available, and debate them. Corvettes are not readily available in europe, look at the zr1 premium. The new Skyline that is sold here is very americanized, far from the origins of the original. If chevrolet europeanized the vette and changed it's image, much like Nissan did in the americas after renault took charge, you would get the same arguements over there. While statisically and performance wise, it is not the greatest car, for many it is one of the greatest bvecause it is a car that is readily available to the public unlike most supersport cars. The new GTR is high competition for this now, much like the Z and the Infiniti are alternatives to base corvettes. Nissan offers what north americans want, so people will argue what is better since there is no clear victor.
