Imagine the Z06 with all-wheel drive... GAME OVER!!!

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

I guess you dont need anyone to tell you then

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

As expected.

Because the '12 GTR is lighter and has 60hp more.

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


I like how people only bitch and complain when the LSX loses. There's always someone faster.

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.

I like the review that Randy had on the Z06..."It's a beast"!

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 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

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