^^^ Sorry but FORD GT gets my vote for the best car america made. I had a z06 as my track car, and that thing was a beast, but you just cant compare the 2.

Z06 C5 or C6.
C6 Z06 and Ford GT have been compared quite heavily.... and often in favor of Z06.
Although they are in a different price category.
But of course if we are talking about the best car and if we ignore the price, Ford GT might get my vote. Or perhaps Z06.

Well the Ford GT really isn't a high volume production car so I'd say Vette Z06 is probably one of the best in that respect.
The earlier Vette's are CRAP compared to the Z06's. Flame away but I have a few friends who are Vette owners who will side with me.
Sure they go fast straight but were always notorious for handling like crap.

I thought the Procede removed the speed limiter?

Even though, sorry ADHD, you would have lost in the end if it was a Z06. Top speed limitation is also dictated by total HP and the Vette had more

I just sold my C6 2006. The list was 59K I bought it for 8 maxed out with the GMS discount. Sold it with 7K on it one year latter for 44K so much for resale.
The vett will blow the 335 away in ever way. I have a 335 so I can really see the diference. Q control on the vett is fair, Never had a single arranty problem though. For the money you really can't bet them. Great MPH 31 on the highway 23 around town and very easy to service and great warr. I was just bored

LOL..the 31 mpg is great in theory, the problem is that everytime i used to drive my z06 i love to hear that engine roaring. So much for the 31 MPG.

I Instruct at PDA perfromance driving school, and the c6 z06 is a great track car but i will repeat myself again, there is no comparison between a FORD GT and a Z06. And i dont care what the magazines say. I know from my 12 years of professional racing experience.

Is it really that much fun to go over 160 is a 335? Guess you could calculate speed according to the tach, but what fun is that?

Just realized that this is going to cause so many problems when the limiter defeat comes out. "Dude, I was going at least 200, because my tach reading was X, which calculates to Y"

+1. You gotta work you're way up to that. Mine isn't quite at Z06 level(yet) and it's scared the crap out of me once or twice already and I've been driving for 20+ years
You want scary try running into the triple digits in a KB equipped 03/04 Cobra. Mine was a rocket ship but the front end floats like crazy in the triple digits...very scary. Speed doesn't scare me in the right vehicle...it's the wrong one u have to worry about.

I'm sure that was extremely unsettling and would take alot of fun out of the car.

The 1st night I had my C6 after the mods, I took it over to a street with no houses on it that's close to the house. It's about 1/2 mile long so you can get going pretty good.

I floored it in 1st and shifted into 2nd at about 55, within about a sec after shifting the back end broke rank and the car proceded to go from straight into about a 40 degree angle, it was too much power for even the traction control. I had to let off the gas to quickly recover and get it straighted out. It was fun but it got the heart racing just a little.

They are very close (the Z06 and the GT3). Some races the Z06 wins, some the GT3 wins but all are very close. Once you factor in that for very similar performance you could use the 40K you save on the Z06 to buy a 335 to go with it, the Z06 looks even better.

That's a C6 model, a Z06 to be exact. What you ran was mostly likely a base C6, they look almost identical except some body panel differences. The stock Z06 is running 505HP and 470 lbs of TQ, I can't hang with one (yet) even with my current mods.

here's the two together
