and then I'm sure some GTR nut swinger will say now.. "Imagine the GTR with a 7.0 weighing 3250" :eyes:

I love all three of those cars, if you ask me they are for different things and should not really be compared like this.

That's already been done, hence why they used the new model.

Great race, the GTR is very impressive but its not for me because I think its ugly. Poor GT500 might as well rest up for the ZL1 that's coming. But in the end I still would rock the Z06 that thing hauls but that's expected with a N/A LS7 monster under the hood. :)

Come on guy. The GT500 would still be left behind lol. The reason they are testing the 2012 GT-R is because it comes out next week.

kinda expected from a dig that the GT-R would win that one. I didn't catch the trap speeds for the 3 but i'm betting the Z06 was about 5-6mph faster than the GT-R. if that's the case lets do a roll race and see if the outcome :D I actually like the GT-R's but i do think they are kinda ugly from some angles. Also why did they waste their time with the Z06 Carbon? It only weighs like 50lb's less than the Z06. It inflates the price nearly $10k so it makes it seem like it is more money and can't beat the cheaper GT-R when in fact the Z06 is nearly the same price with a better warranty :D

Think the z06 top speed was just a little over 1 mph more at the traps than the GTR.

The nissan is an impressieve overall package. I think its a tad too heavy though. It would be off-the-charts if it weighed in with the Zo6. However, I still like the looks/engine and the heritage of the Vette ten times more.

TriGuy
02-17-2011, 08:02 AM
but here is my question....I know the HP ratings are all pretty close for the 3 cars but in the first video did you see the "price as tested" and "base price"....

_________price tested______base price
gt500.........$55k...................$49k
z06............$98k:eek:............$75k
gt-r............$91k..................$91k

REALLY?!?!?! Yes the GT500 lost fair and square but look at the price difference as well. Don't get me wrong yes I am a fan of the GT500, but I am also a fan of the LSx vehicles hence the DD...I have loved the GT-r since I first saw the old styles. What I have to look at is if you were to get a GT500 that is closer in the "price as tested" range to the Z06 and GT-r you won't be getting the base GT500 but more in the super snake models.

I wonder how much room Nissan could save if they made it a true coupe and did a back seat delete?

x2

the professional race car driver said it himself, "the nissan felt numb, boring. no, not numb, just boring". that's not what i want to experience from a 90k supercar. If i was to spend that much money on a car I would want an exciting car that tested my driving skills, not a do-everything-for-you car like the GT-R.

with an unlimited amount of money and a choice between the three; the z06 would be my first choice, the beastly gt500 next, and then i might try out the gt-r just for kicks...

it's obvious that newer technology performs better than the older ways, but i think it lessens the whole experience that enthusiasts get when driving; i guess the only way i can put it is that it seems to take away from the personality that cars used to have. I might not always view it this way, but to me, a manual transmission with the traction control turned off will produce more grins and enjoyment than a automated computer driven manual car ever will; and that's why i got into this hobby of cars, the enjoyment and excitement they bring...

Holy hell, how could you pick any besides the Z06 after seeing all of them lined up to race?? It makes the other two look like freakin' tanks! I really don't get the new fad of making these gigantic sports cars, +1000 to Chevy for keeping the Corvette nice and slim. And why did they go for a fully loaded Z06 over a ZR1? Aren't they just a hair over $100k?

i know a local guy with a GT-R and like i said they are cool cars but they look HUGE in person and of the 3 i think it would be the most boring to drive unless you turn off the nannies and really push it. Just like when Top Gear did the race with the ZR1 vs. R8(V10 version) and Jeremy said that the R8 was boring and that the ZR1 was a far more fun car to drive and that's why he'd pick the ZR1

A dual clutch transmission is not an Auto. It requires you to shift therefore not an auto. That is how you get the maximum performance out of the car. It uses the same style transmission that F1 cars use. And the GT-R beat the Z06 one handed lol. Pretty crazy if you ask me.

This race is total bull shit man

That z06 has the complete ZR1 package. Yes its faster on a road course but 150 pounds heavier and 20K more expensive that a base Z06.

How about they race a base model 3100 pound Z06 at 75K against the 90K nissan..

It aint gonna trapp 123 mph in the 1/4 like this heavier one did and will hit 125 mph and shortly pass the 1/4 zip around the nissan like nothing

Zac_Speed
03-04-2011, 05:09 AM
Killemall nailed it. The only thing holding that car back is those fucking wheels. $98k for a Vette and it better have some fucking Carbon wheels or some shit. I understand the advantage of the suspension and brakes and Carbon Fiber body panels. With those wheels though it just ruins the idea...

Also that Vette woulda stopped waaaay under a 101ft. with the brakes warmed up.

If they put the base model Z06 against the GT-R it wouldn't be anywhere close on the road course portion. And while the trap speed is higher the E.T. that motor trend got would get with the Z06 would only shave off 2 tenths at best because their drivers suck. This isn't only about the 1/4 mile in this vid its about the whole package.

Willow springs is in California. Besides Florida its one of the warmest places in the area right now. They tested all the cars factory stock, and no car was given advantages beyond their factory features. You sound mad that the Z06 lost. Its an incredible car, it just didn't come out on top this time.

Were you there when they tested? Didn't think so...101ft isn't far off what some other tests have put it at anyway.

The only problem I have with the test is the use of a $98K Z06 over a $110k ZR1. I'm not sure there are many people that are going to shell out ZR1 money for a Z06. I would take any Corvette (besides the vert) over the pig that is the GTR anyway.

WWWAAYYY to much extra heft gained from the R34s (which were big to begin with) for me-

The comparison was 5 figure supercars. The MSRP on a ZR1 well over 5 figures as you already know. Thats why they did the comparison.

I hate these comparisons because they are driven by editors who honestly cant drive for shit and thus the gtr which takes no skill to drive will win every time because the z06 and the gt500 take skill to launch and drive. Especially with the gt500 I mean with all that torque down low and street tires = FAIL period. 1st and 2nd are pointless. I mean they trapped 115 in it lol that shows how bad it is.
