Re: What handles better a M5 or a Z06 Corv

As an owner of both cars...a 2001 Torch Red Z06 and a 2002 LeMans Blue M5...it's not a fair comparison question. The Z06 is revelled about as being the best BANG for the buck performance car and the M5 compared as the ultimate sports sedan...RB

Re: What handles better a M5 or a Z06 Corv

shouldve been a little bit more specific with the yrs..but if we compare e60 to a c6..there is a weight difference of almost 1000pds and a c6 is a real proven track car..the new vette isnt a joke and its performance surpass's most of its exotic predasessors. on a beautiful Sunday..go to church in the 5..and later that evening take the c6 out on a long whindy road.

Re: What handles better a M5 or a Z06 Corv

z06 is made for the track, it can't handle because of the tremendous wheel spin it produces. m5 on the other hand has DSC, Dynamic Stability Control. DSC Greatly reduces the chance of spinning out or losing control. Performance wise= the corvettes LS1 engine is great, but compared to the m5's 500HP v10 engine with a 7 speed transmission, you can't compare. especially in handling.
