I'd rather have the last gen. The new one is a hair slower, but that'* not it. It'* that the old one was so menacing. Kind of had the GNX look going, looked like an ordinary car, but with something evil inside...

Not to mention the modified ones could do a quarter mile in like 9 seconds

But this one looks so sexy compared to previous gen.
But with a 0-60 in 3.5, 11.7 sec quarter mile and top speed of 192 mph, STOCK, I wouldn't mind having those numbers.

Ya, I'm with Ryan, the ZR-1 is a fabulous car, I'd take it over the GT-R.

I'll take the ZR1 over your ZR-1 guys....

(ZR-1 is the 90'* one with an LT5 screamer, which i do love..)

No dash in the new 'vette...

The Corvette will cost much more, doesn't have a dual clutch gearbox, but it'* much lighter, ah trade-offs...

I was going to mention the new ZR1 also. Faster than a 3.5 0-60, and a much better looking car than the new Skyline too (I like the back end of it better). But the Vette is perfect IMO (and my desktop on one of my monitors ).
