The ZO6 is the new one right? Either way, for the value, the car is a beast, You probably wont find anything better in that price range. ZO6 supposedly performs fairly well and look nice. I am not sure hwo their reliablity goes though.

yes, yes it is!
it's fast and powerful, but watch this --- every p*ssy will have one...
so i'd rather stick with m5 or m6 cuz then you'll be the only one, riding with style and comfort GM will never be able to provide

lol ya the new ZO6 is going to be insane...they arent for sale yet but the C6 is so i think thats where the confusion up top with "everyone having them"

the new c6 is a incredible car already, the handling is the best of any vette yet(like thats saying much but the C5 wasnt bad by any means)but now its acually not as long so it is a little more agile. The plus side to this...you can get a C5 for less than $20k now...woot lol

Perform relatively well? Ha, that's an understatement. Those cars are crazy fast and if you can get one. The thing I read about it is that it's so powerful that you can't really lay into the throttle, you have to nurse it. If you get one drive safe
