I like the 550 better. The Z06 is my favorite car under $80,000, but you can't beat the Ferrari's classic 12 cylinder engine, great sound, and that beautiful styling!

What kind of a comeback is that??
Nice car you got there. 4.27 sec is pretty damn good. How did you lauch your Z06? I think it's capable of better times (stock). I was on CorvetteForums and a guy ran his Z06 to a blistering 4.08sec! He said he revved it up to 2000-2500rpm dropped the clutch and floored it.

Back on the topic. The Ferrari Modena looks good but not that good. In fact every time I look at the car it looks uglier for some reason. It's kind of bubly and I hate the way the front looks. The Z06 looks much better. It might be a Ferrari but it ain't perfect. Did anyone read R&T latest issue where they have the batte of the brands. They tested all the cars on the track and Z06 came .6sec behind the Modena and 2.4sec in front of the Porsche 996TT. I don't know but that says a lot to me. The racetrack was ThunderHill Park. I don't know jack about ThunderHill Park, is it a tight track or one with straights?

I don't care about numbers, I like the Ferrari's rarity, styling, engine noise, and quality. A few seconds aren't worth it to me. How often will you race you $150,000 car?

Yes 4.08 is pretty fast but I have been hearing really great numbers on the strip. I think the Z06 gets 12.3-12.4sec @113-116mph. Guys don't get me wrong I never said the Z06 looks better than the 550, I said it looks better than the 360. The 550 is just beautiful, and the 360 really isn't (to me at least). If I was offered a ZR1 I'd take that over a 550 or a 360.

I wouldn't take any Corvette over a New 360 Modena F1 or 550 Maranello. Maybe only a 1967 L88 'Vette, but that's it, cause it had like 600 HP and did the 1/4 mile in 12 seconds. The 550 Maranello is just a fantastically designed car, the 360 is just a cooler car. The 550 has all those nice features, but the 360 has a clear engine bay and the F1 paddles, making it a bit cooler.
