zo6 or f430.......performance aside, this is a no brainer
So the vette was fastest, but finished last due to horrible interior?
poor interior quality on the z06? what the fuck do they want berillium plated shift knobs, or diamond encrusted steering wheels, what a bunch of fagmos
i hate that "accleration in top gear" shit. who the fuck is using 6th to go from 30-60 or 50-70.........who the fuck is using 6th at 30 or 60 anyway
ferrari > *
So the Z06 pretty much dusts the floor with the rest of the cars and gets 3rd place? I'm not a Corvette fan at all, but the Z06 probably should have gotten 1st place...2nd at worst.
saw a 430 in person. wasnt too impressed. seems really boxy and high, 360>430. also engine didnt sound as orgasmic
Sounds like there are lot of subjective factors that didn't make it into Trishield's recap.
Because the only thing that matters, of course, are times achieved by professional drivers on a course that only a handful of drivers will ever drive.
I got a ride in a C6Z last night and I have to say that it's an absolutely spectacular car.
Would I love a 997 911 Turbo or an F430? Hell yes. Will I ever afford one? Nope.
so wait, car mags finally think that refinement > ballzoutmuscle again?
most practical, cheapest, fastest, quickest and still comes in last.....oh well what can ya do
edit: fucking spelling
How the fuck does that Z06 Rape everything else in the comparison, and come in last.
Have you ever been talking on your phone while trying to merge on the highway?
to me 430 > 360. Something about the 360's front bumper doens't do it for me
i would buy the zo6
lol @ corvette 50-70 in top gear
The Z06 is like the extremely smart ugly kid who gets straight a's at school but has no friends, the f430 is the cool kid who is naturally talented in the cooler classes but gets B's and looks like god.
because, aside from an awesome drivetrain, it sucks as a people mover.
Lazy ppl that don't want to drop a gear
Well, they give you the performance figures, but that wouldn't make very good reading by itself, would it? I think if you read the recaps they sum it up pretty well.
Vette = best bargain (but with the baggage that a "bargain" entails)
911 = sedate, best for bad weather
Ferrari = best all around dream car
"hey hold on I have to merge" phone down, clutch in, rev match, downshift, clutch out, WFO, merge, shift, "ok, I'm back. Where were we?" Or get a headset. not hard
@ you. Thats the same gear the vette goes 198mph.
