    GM reveals '06 Z06 price!

    Well, it's official. The new Corvette Z06, the fastest Corvette ever, has been revealed! For months, people could only see the Z06 at car shows or online. Now people have an idea of what it will cost. And truly as the fastest Corvette, the price is quite expensive. Rivaling the Dodge Viper at a $65k base price compared to the regular C6's base price of a little under $50k.

    More info can be found here: http://www.digitalcorvettes.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=38421

    So what do you people think? Is it worth the wait and all the hype?

    Nice, but for the same price i can get a brand new Evolution VIII MR upgrade the turbo, modify the hell out of it, spank the vette, and still have enough money to take my girl out for a nice meal :)

    I would not touch a mitsubishi with a 10 foot pole. If anything I would take a WRX Sti over it any day. Also the Evo has nowhere near the looks of the Vette or even the WRX.

    I don't know much about cars (modding and such...im a disgraceful asian) but getting
    for about 65k doesnt sound too bad to me. Plus it puts out the same amount of performance as some of the exotic 6 figure european cars for a much less price. Good deal if i had the $. But until then i think ill just cruise around in my very very stock 2000 civic ex woot!


    EDIT: some more info :

    Putting a stock car agianst a custom is hardly fair under any curcomstance, not to mention the Vette would blow you away on a racecourse. Any car can become a dragster. Plus a new corvette can get you more girls if your shallow enough.

    This Corvette is freaking sweet. the fastest built so far. Compared to exotics it beats all the competition when it comes to the bang for the buck.

    Well they better do something..or they'll be calling up the government to bail them out. GM is hurting according to the news and such. And I don't really see how a car with a base price of 50k+ is gonna help them much.

    GM called me a couple weeks ago and just wanted to try somethin out, since they heard I was having trouble anyways.

    Its decent.

    I think its worth it. And I agree with several points, anyone can make a drag car but the corvette would embarass the dragster on a track. Too bad I can't afford one ;). At least I have a 2002 Camaro SS with a 2003 Z06 motor :thumbsup: .

    Like Honda's, the Corvette has a very loyal fanbase. Small, but loyal. it is also the testbed for new technolegies GM develops. If anything, Vette sales will go up. its the mainstream cars that need to sell to help GM.

    $50,000 is a fair amount for a car, and over here in britian (where cars generally cost waaay more than anywhere else due to taxes and shipping) it'll be even more expensive. Also, how many people who own these high speed cars have regular access to race tracks big enough to get up to 180 or 190mph? top speed is irrelevent for most people...
