Oh Toyota failed. For $400K you get C6 Z06 performance and get completely embarrassed by a $110K ZR1.

GM is good, but not good enough to beat a GT500 for $45K. The Z28 will be around $55K MSRP.

Any chance GM can play some similar tricks with Aluminum vs Steel in the Z28 as they do in the Vettes? Can you do a unibody in Aluminum?

I know. That's what I said in #156. I thought all the base Vettes have the Z51 suspension now that the GS is here.

GS = Z06 with an LS3 and Base = Z51, no?
