Why not just get the Z06? If it's just going to be a weekend car, it's pretty pointless to spend the money on the C63 or the M3 when you're only getting luxuries and practicality that you don't really need in a weekend car. Not to mention that an ESS M3 dynos around 460... which is what a Z06 does.. stock, and it's a few hundred pounds lighter.

Yeah, you could stage 4 an evo, but the only downside about the corvette is its interior, and the evos is even worse.

In gas mileage? 0-60? Quarter mile? Around a track? OP, kind of a broad question.

Do you have track experience? I hear corvettes are difficult to wring out their full potential.

a Z06 is more common than a C-class or a 3-series? I mean, yeah, it's a C63... but it's still a C-class. And yeah, it's an M3... but it's still a 3-series. If you're trying to stand out, I'm not sure a C or a 3 is going to do that for you at all.


I do like the GTR idea though

You'll have a hard time finding a car than whoop a Z06(especially in its price range). The LS7 is also one of the most efficient big hp power plants made. No gas guzzler tax for a car with its power #'s is phenominal.

The new Z06 comes in at #9 on the Official Nurburgring lap times. Do let us know when you buy a car that can beat it. There are some out there, Im just curious what you end up with, especially since an evo is on the wish list.

Cobb tuned Nissan Gtr-R with HKS exhaust. 2 mods costing a total of $2500 will allow you to run 10's in the 1/4. A stock Z06 can't do that... but they can be modified as well.

If you think of it that way. I barely see any m3 or c63 but I see lots of mustangs and corvette.

Stock Z06's with drag radials have broken into the tens.

I agree, this is why a Z06 is aiming very high. I doubt even a fully modded C63 or M3 without spray will be able to keep. The MHP C63 which holds the American Benz record without spray was only running 11.2@125. I say good luck OP because a Z06 is a fast car... Consider a fully built evo with a massive turbo lol

Isn't the 2012 GTR faster than a ZR1?

If you're not willing to spend the money on an exotic then you're choices are very limited...
