2 different cars, which would you choose.

I am thinking of adding to the stable.

I have found an 2008 Z06 manual trans and an 2011 CTS-V coupe Auto . Both low miles both in immaculate condition. About the same cost.

Give me opinions on what you would choose and why.

Since you already have great looking Hennessey, I would probably go with the CTS-V. Really like the styling of the performance luxury coupe.

I agree with this.

You already have a fast car with an average interior lol. Go for the badass luxury ride.

(no offense to the Z06, I really want one too)

Thanks for the complement. The back seat would be an added bonus. I love performance that is first and foremost. The thought of a 700 hp Cadillac is just... well I don't have to explain.

By the way neither would stay stock HP.

I'll pay for one, If you will pay for the other.

That gives me both.

If you don't need the backseat, then get the Z06. But the Caddy is newer and gives you the added bonus of a back seat. The Z06 would still tromp all over the CTS-V, but it's a matter of whether you're okay with giving up a little performance to get the luxury

C6 Z06 with 355/25/19's on stock rims all day.





To me the caddy is just another daily driven car you see on the road everyday and will look dated just like the previous V. A properly done Z is a more special car that gets taken out when you really want to enjoy life and shouldn't go out of style thanks to its amazing sounding NA 427ci LS7 banging gears at WOT. It's real man's car compared to a CTS coupe especially with an automatic.

The C7 Stingray is nice and all but only traps 117mph and is about 300lbs heavier then a C6Z.

CTS-V Coupe! (hands down)

Edit: I can't believe people on here are saying that the CTS looks like every other car on the road. You do realize it was the CTS that brought life back into Cadillac? The CTS-V coupe will prove to be a historic car, similar to the 5th gen Camaro.

And for those who think they are just plain, here's one I guarantee any of you would take in a heartbeat...

Z06 is the superior performance car out of the 2. Go with the vette and don't look back.

Z06 gets my vote. First Vettes are amazing and second it's a true sports car because it has a manual

Out of those two choices, I'd go for the Z06.

Although styling is totally different, CTS-V and Camaro are too similar IMO... (both 4 seat coupes). With the Z06 you at least get a "change"...
