saw the literature a few days back.

lol @ intercooler viewing portal and raw carbon fibre. maybe it will grow on me but i doubt it. disappointed in the general at this time. he can keep his addition 115 horsepower and north of 100k price tag. current Z06 looks better and can make ~620 horse for $6000. i doubt i'll notice the difference in brakes/suspension/so on fron the Z06 to the Zr1.

i guess it doesn't matter much as i cannot afford a c5 z06 let along the currnt gen zr1 varient.

Add that $6000.00 to the 2009 ZR1 and it will get well over 750 hp. It'* all relative, isn't it? The increase in price isn't dedicated to hp only. Talk about possible colector'* item. Look at what the Ron Fellows Vette were/are going for. In my opinion, it not as easy to notice the differnce in bhp after you've gone pass the 500 hp mark since it'* hard to control it when let loose, at that point anyway, especially with that gearing.

I've been in a C6 Z06 and declined to drive it. I must say though, it'* one awesome adventure riding in one.

Modifying any car will be cheaper than getting an "upgraded version. It'* about more than HP though on this..
