    Z06 comes out on top for speed

    Weekly British automotive mag Autocar recently shut down the London City Airport because they wanted to find out what car was the fastest in London. Amidst a field that included hometown hero Bentley's Continental Flying Spur, as well as a Ford GT (it lost to the British-built SLR by nary 1.4 mph, fix!), Corvette Z06, Shelby Daytona Cobra, Porsche 911 Turbo, BMW M6, Alpina B5, and Vauxhall Maloo, the SLR McLaren was able to post the fastest time of 175.7 mph on the one-mile long airport runway. No word on how fast the bike in picture went, though.

    The record attempt marks the fastest a car has ever been driven legally in London and will be submitted to the Guiness Book of World Records. Here are the final trap speeds of the other contestants.

    Mercedes McLaren SLR - 175.7 mph
    Ford GT - 174.3 mph
    Corvette Z06 - 167.0 mph
    Porsche Turbo - 162.6 mph
    BMW M6 - 162.5 mph
    Shelby Daytona Cobra - 159.7 mph
    Alpina B5 - 155.4 mph
    Bentley Flying Spur - 157.4 mph
    Vauxhall Maloo - 160.8 mph

    That M6 is quite close too the Turbo. Very close actually

    Re: Z06 comes out on top for speed

    Standard questions...was the 997 Turbo a Tip or 6-speed? Did it have SC?

    Standard questions, but as of now yet unanswered.

    Re: Z06 comes out on top for speed

    Like i said in a review,the turbo will not run away from an m6,especially after 100mph,the m6 only just gets going then.
    I was suprised how fast my m6 felt after driving the turbo.
    Put a few bends in the road and you'll be a lot quicker in the turbo.

    It seems the powerkit will be the way to go.

    I believe the bike is Kawasaki's new ZX-14; a MONSTER!

    Not too much of a suprise. They're close in weight and power. Considering the trick tranny the M6 has i'm sure that makes up for the sligh weight difference.

    I wonder what the margin between those cars and your F430 would have been?

    Not relevant. Anything over 60 is impossible for Nick, anyway .

    I would like to see what a Tip with Sport Chrono would do. Seeing how it has extra boost, I think it would be as fast as the C6Z. I gotta hand it to chevy, though. They made a rocket.

    What are you saying? Was the turbo tested not equipped with sport chrono or are you saying you'd like to see results with sport chrono?

    He's saying he's getting one without it. That's one man who will HAVE TO go to a tuner.

    Somethings up with that number. Motor Trend tested a 996 Turbo in the standing mile and recorded a speed of 161.58 mph.
