There is no such thing as "too excited" with a car that looks like this.

And the headlights... meh. Put some silverstars in those bad boys... man I'm so excited that they brought back the 427 for this car... that'* going to make a lot of nostalgic Vette-heads happy!

First you'd have to get rid of the $600-700 HID system :P

WHy spend $40 on a bulb that outputs just as much light as a $2 bulb, but is white/blue?

The Body of the C6 Z06 is mainly Carbon Fibre, notably the hood and quarter panels (some others too). That'* part of the huge cost jump.

If those are the first #'* out for it, beating Ford GT'* and 911'* won't matter, It'* how it'll take on an Enzo that'll show us what american engineering can do.

i think the 500hp/tq is also a shot to BMW that needs a V10 to do it. And a rev limit of like 9000, a TB for every cylinder, and iDrive. THe vette did it and is alot less complicated. Rockers on that bad boy would be like +50hp!

With boost it would be insane. 700hp anyone? That would OWN just about anything.

the vette is lighter, cheaper, and doesnt have an SC...yet

Spend half as much on a vette, SC or turbo it, and you are the king of the road.
