Today I went for a Vette performance training and I had my camera with me.

Here`s a picture of doing 282 kph/175 mph with my XLR.
The analog speedo always stops at 260 kph / 162 mph but the HUD goes up.
Too bad you can`t see the HUD numbers, I think the sun is make it impossible.

I´ll try again some other day!!!!

BTW the Z06 is a real beast!

Hans, did you get some seat time in one of the C6's to compare to the Z06?
Marc, I drove a stock C6 first (all european models are equipped with the Z 51 package, only not if they have the magnetic ride system)so I had the Z51 with six speed manual first.
The handling and the brakes got alot better than my C5`s was. Acceleration was great in this C6 and the shift ways got a little shorter compared to the C5. - great car!!!!!:thumbs

But now, after about 50 minutes hard ride with the C6 they offer me to take the Z06 and I did.

Boy, this car is NO sports-car it`s a racing-car, I took sharp turns with almost the double speed what a regular type of car would be able to do. On a curvy uphill passage I´ve had it in a sharp right turn at about 50 mph - 100 yards straight line then a sharp left-turn, I got it to over 100 mph before this left turn.

The handling, braking and accelertion-power of this car is unbelievable. At the end of my 60 min. drive with this one I went for a 10 mile ride on the Autobahn and I knocked the 200 miles just like nothing. (german speedo goes up to 320 kph (200 mph) but HUD shows 339 kph (211 mph). What a car!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

C6 is the sports-car - Porsche 911 similar, but I prefer the Vette over the 911
XLR is the luxury sports car - SL XK or SC similar, but with the best look
Z06 is the racer - Ferrari Lambo or SLR like for an unbeatable price

Five stars is the highest rating what in german mag. car tests is possible - the Z06
made ***** stars, I know now why:thumbs :thumbs :thumbs :thumbs :thumbs

Sounds like you had a great time, and it appears your thoughts are about like mine. I have a good friend with an 06 Z06 and I've driven it several times now and loved every minute of it.
