Wait - he'* got fogs in the lower air damn openings that come on the coupe, but aren't there on Z06 (because it'* behind the mesh). So what, he basicaly put a type R badge on his Vette? Z06 badges, wheels, the fake brake ducts, and grill mesh.

EDIT: Doesn't have the brakes, and the exhaust isn't titanium atleast. I'll bet he doesn't have an LS6 either.
wow you totally caught that. VERY GOOD EYE!!!

i have got to agree with that... what does gm think they are doing with the corvette, they cant decide what kind of racing it is for, i would have to say that gm is making huge mistakes with the corvette...

Thanx, i could tell you all the differences in ridges between my car and say willwren'* on the lower body. I dunno why. And the Vette is my favorite car. I read a book on the C5 development "All Corvette'* are Red". They gave the author more leeway in GM then damn near every VP. Really teaches you about the designing of modern vehicles.

I like where GM is going with the performance of the Vette and it is still a beautiful looking car, but you can't beat the curves of the C3.
