If you can't beat'em...JOIN'em!!

Want a Z06? ZR1 even? Can't afford it?! If you can,....buy a Corvette 1LT, ....take it to supervetts ,slap this body-kit onto it for 6k and supercharge it, and this is what you get!

The ZR6X...

Too bad it doesn't come with the wheels which cost more than the body kit including tires. The kit itself is wicked.

That looks pretty sweet, except for the rear diffuser. It's a little gaudy in my opinion...

Tires- Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 - 245/40ZR-18 93Y MB B- $279 a pop.

Total without the wheels: $9398.99

I'd say,....to have my vett look like THAT, I'd pay the 9/10k in a heart beat. It's one of the most gorgeous corvettes I've ever seen. And this is nothing more than a supercharged 1LT with a bodykit. I say this has to be one of the best alternatives if you cannot afford a z06 or Zr1. This car definitely gives you the look, performance aside. There are some great prices on superchargers for Vetts anyway,....slap it on and you got your Z right there!

Base Corvette + supercharger + body kit + wheels is not the same as a ZR1

No, but considering it's supercharged with 622-rwhp, I highly doubt you'll tell the difference. And actually, thats more than what a ZR1 is putting down at the wheels. More power, go faster?? Anyone?

FAR LESS cheaper also.....

And what about the carbon fibre, MR suspension, aluminum frame, and brakes that were borrowed from the Enzo and FXX?

The ZR1 is about far more than straight line performance.

It's definitely awesome for what it is (), but if I was ever given the choice, I'd put the extra $$$ down for a ZR1.

Very true BUT you'll never notice at 100 mph as they say.
The body kits are the latest craze, they do look sweet !!
But your right the rest of the performance package doesnt come with the body kit. BUT again... its looks like a $100,000 car but half the cost.

While I do agree it lacks all of the performance parts as the ZR1, I wouldn't cry to much about the carbon fiber or aluminum, a base Corvette is lighter than a ZR1. The ZR1 just has better brakes, engine, and suspension, but not the weight advantage.

From Chevrolet.com

Base Corvette Coupe 1-4LT: 3,208lbs
Corvette Grandsport: 3,311lbs
Corvette Z06: 3,175lbs
Corvette ZR1: 3,333lbs

Interesting to note,....the base Corvette Coupe and the Z06 are only 33 pounds apart! The ZR1 seems to be the heaviest of the bunch. I love the ZR1, but I'd never buy one, even if I had the money when I can get to that level of performance with far less money. I'm too poor! lol. So I'd do better just buying my 1LT with THAT body-kit, get some engine work done(cam, headers, exhaust, supercharger), add better brakes and suspension, and I'd
die a happy man, at 200mph!!

Oh and BigDan, that Vett from Dallas performance is ridiculous dude!!! OMFG. It's exhaust opens the doors of hell! Oh and I love the little touch on the dash "ALWAYS ON KILL" lol. 1300rwhp! Bugatti-Killer.......

The supercharger, beefier suspension, and bigger brakes, and bigger wheels would account for north of 100 LB the ZR1 has on the base car. hell, the car in the pictures probable weighs more than a ZR1
