You know I can respect a good chevy when I see one and 100% of the time they are classics. This new ZR1 is a pretty good car but when you put the specs and price up against a Shelby Super Snake you are really wasting money on the ZR1. The numbers are not that high for the hp per liter, hp per dollar, and the general performance. Yes, it is Chevy's supercar but it has no relavence to Chevy's old Corvette supercar. On the other hand you get what you pay for when you get a mid engine 2005 Ford GT supercar with amazing numbers from a supercharged 5.4 on the strip, dyno, and road track. A+ for chevy's idea of building the ZR1 but a C- in the thought process of pricing with sub par numbers compared to other supercars.

Ranting over... LOL... The only corvette that I can stand to look at is the classic Stingray becaus that was how a Corvette should have been remodeled.

Oh I enjoy burnouts, especially crazy ones like that stang and when the tires are ripped to pieces. That was just my take on the ZR1. If those were stock tires then he just burned off enough rubber that he could have probably come close to buying a new Mustang GT.

I'm also a big Ford guy, but I have to say that I think that the ZR1 would outperform the new Shelby GT 500 Supersnake on the a road course. It would be a close race on a drag strip I think though and I would put money on the Stang for 1/4 mile times. The Vette may not have as impressive numbers, but it definitely has a far superior suspension. Its got a 50/50 front/ rear weight ratio with the trans being set back near the rear and independent rear suspension. The Stang is still a solid axle out back which limits its cornering ability. The front/ rear ratio for the mustang probably also has a way heavier front end then rear end. I don't know the exact numbers though.
