    seems to me that they did not know how to drive the GT2.....

    Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary... That's what gets you.

    Re: GT2 vs ZR1 vs 599 vs GTR

    Oh boy, the GTR finished last!!!!

     It usually kills the Z06, Turbo and GT2 around the track Smiley

    Pic from Corvette enthusiast of some of his current cars with recent Ferraris and Porsches in and out of his Texas garage also , so you could say he has this thread pretty much covered.


    Re: GT2 vs ZR1 vs 599 vs GTR

    I have to say, that black colour on the ZR-1 hides all those slants and ripples but underlines the stance and proportions very well. I like it...

    Re: GT2 vs ZR1 vs 599 vs GTR

    Does anyone knows of some magazine performed tests of the ZR1 with figures? (0-60, 0-100, ecc...)
    IMHO here in Europe that car seems a little to flashy and large... But the figures are outstanding! And the eventual mods even more... Smiley

       Interesting how Corvette ZR1  (176 inches long/ 76 in wide ) is perceived as "large" when it's similar in length  to 997 GT2 ( 176"L /73" W ) and shorter than Ferrari F430 ( 178 " L /76" W ) . 

    That may have been true 20 years ago, but the Porsche 911 and  Ferrari V8 models have gotten , IMO, too big and heavy . Geez, a 997 Turbo Cab is pushing 3900-4000 lbs fully loaded , 1300 lbs more than my first 911 in 1987- like carrying 8 extra passengers on every ride , which you feel when you corner or brake.
