Unfortunately DF they do now, so cant really say that about them. The current Z06 is one hell of a weapon and handles beautifully on track from what i have read. Its one capable car now.

I suppose it's a typical american 'muscle car' but not pretty. Sure it'll sound nice although lacks the European pedigree. Don't you think it's a 'pimp my ride' Chris? Less is very often more.

Carlos is right ... the Z06 is superb in corners and a rocket on the straights. It's a proper supercar for very little money.

I think that was quite an unflattering angle in the first photo as well. This is better:

Lot of car for the money, that beat the Porsche Carrera GT round the ring iirc.

One in the pic looks like Calloway might have fettled it.

It starts when you order bespoke tax disc holders ... then you are on the slippery slope to all out bling and 22 inch rims with revolving hubs and neon

Bling!! Have you moved areas Chris? .

Think it's the colour that reflects the 'pimp' ride, maybe they look better in the flesh or it's just an image they have, (not helped by Clarkson BTW). Besides I KNOW you are a respectable chap and not like that. Tell you what, WHEN you get one, you'll have to promise to take me out in it, you know where I am.

What about this one ..

http://www.pistonheads.com/sales/528076.htm

Steering wheel is slightly in the wrong place but thats a 7.0 litre supercar for 49K. Stick a calloway conversion on and your away.

(slightly off topic) This was the first entry in the corvette section on pistonheads:

http://www.pistonheads.com/sales/529445.htm

That is a fine looking ve-hicle

I disagree about the Vette being ugly. Hey, the Corvette guys don't rank on the BMW.

Ever driven one? Probably the most fun I have ever had.

I like it in both pictures - if you're going to have something loud and silly then go for it and make it look like a toy - afterall thats what fast expensive cars are.
