With that huge MPH difference? Doubt it. Also, since we get to modify the ZL-1 with gears, can we also tune the Bimmer for a few extra extra pounds of boost?

Actually you can buy a brand new 2013 ZR1 for ~$110k easy.

Cadillac CTS-V

Would fit the demographic better, and is still better

No we don't. I'm coming to Huston this weekend, you drive the ZL1, I'll drive the M5 and we can test them in acceleration, braking, around the track, and then I can test your M5 by taking my girlfriend out to dinner in it. I'll let you know what she thinks of the car as well. See you Saturday!

Now I see what trump mean by "Fake News", Loved my Z while it lasted R.I.P but some of you guys are smoking &*^%. the M5 will walk the Z point blank period....... I just bought one, the proof is in the pudding (no pun intended). can you say DCT? not to even mention the wow factor of the M5, I can smoke your Z, all while listening to my 11 speaker Bang and Olufsen system, being massaged by my seats & being caressed by some of the finest leather available. my former ride (2013 ZL1), with all the mods I still couldn't hit 200mph but stock with just the governor disabled, the M5 does it..... IJS.

The M5 is better than it was a few years ago, but still no match for a ZL1. Keep up the good work Chevy.
