If money was no object, then definitely the ferrari, but if I'm spending my own money then I'm not going to pay $200,000 for a car, I'd take the ZO6.

Well the Z06 rapes the Ferrari in most performance aspects, while still costing $150,000 less. I think that says enough.

Well, you see, NO! I read that the z06 does 0-60 in 4. It's hodge-podge. BAH! Ask a little child which car they like more. Put the Ferrari (either one) next to the Z06. Who gets more looks. Ask anyone. "Well, the Z06 is cheaper..." Is that all you can say? BAH!

GNX makes me want to vomit all over my self while shoving snakes up my ass and having horses stomp on my genitals. Could that car be any uglier?

Actually no, that's not all I can say. If you can read, you would noticed that I also stated that the Z06 is an all around better performer. And personally I think the Z06 looks almost as good as the Ferrari, so a car that out-performs another, while looking almost as good, and still costs WAAAAYYYYY less, has good reason to be chosesn over the other. I would take the Z06 any day, unless I was spending someone elses money.

Oh, and if the ASC would have built the GNX off a AMC Pacer....yeah it could look ALOT uglier. Is all you look for in a car good looks? Maybe you should re-consider your title as a car enthusiasts, because I would trade speed for looks pretty much any day.

I would probably pick the Z06 for performance and looks... in my opinion the Ferrari has too many little slots and slits in the body. Without them it looks great, better than the Corvette. But that's not the case, so I'm forced to take the cheaper car.

I'll take the Z06. Almost as good and a lot cheaper too.

MBTN...you are a dumbass. First of all, the Z06 doesn't go 0-60 in 4 flat. Stock, mine did it in 4.27. After mods it ran closer to 3.6. Second, you are acting like a three year old

Lizard King@af- Absolutely, that's likely the best example of a Z06 I've seen to date. Stunning!

MrCorvetteZ06- How do you like the Penske's? Are they external reservoir or internal? That's quite a modification list considering the car is a 2001 model!

the Z06 has tons of power options. PW, PS, PL, AC, CD Player, memory package, and Power Driver seat. there is plenty of power options in the car. It has more than my Stratus does. trust me a Z06 over a 550 hands down!

Cool

I would still take a 550 over one of my dream cars (ZO6). Anyway, can I just ask that guy (sorry I forgot your name ) how you got 4.2 0-60? I test drove one and timed it too. My time was closer to 4.5 seconds. How did you time your ZO6? The old fasion way? BTW, where do you live? Your car looks like a challenge to race. I have a modified R33 (Skyline GTR).
