I don't see an '02 road test but here's a little tidbit:

"Top GM officials boast that Chevrolet plans to go Viper hunting with its next generation Corvette Z06. The new version will be wider than the base C6 Corvette and will boast upward of 450 bhp."

I thought Dave Hill said they never intended to directly compete with the Viper??

How is it that I have had my '02 Z06 all of two days and already am excited about the C6 Z06?

Horsepower is definitely addicting... /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif

If it moves, it needs more horsepower. God, I'm so glad to be with others who are also sick!

Me too, Leadfoot. LOL

IMA Z06 - I'm going to modify my signature to include 'DHC Member'

Chris I know how you feel - when I got my '01 there was already talk of the 405/425 hp models.

Remember I predicted this on a hot tip a few months ago that Dave will put a beefed up version of his other pet project (the Northstar power plant) in and that is why the C6 frame will be one inch wider and longer to accommodate the new engine.

450 HP is great, but what about weight? I heard the C6 is supposed to be lighter than the C5, any info or guesses on the weight of a C6 Z06?

What do you think the Corvette faithful will say about not having a bowtie engine in their Vette /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_confused.gif At least the ZR-1 engine was intended only for the Vette.

Don't be surprised if the Olds Aurora IRL engines magically lose the Aurora nameplate and gain a Bowtie in the future.

The Oldsmobile name may be phased out, but some of the engine programs may remain. The IRL motors are pretty sweet pieces.

As for C6 weight? Lean and mean...lean and mean, that's what I think.

Dumb question - Are the Olds Aurora IRL and Northstar race engines designed/developed by the same folks? I always associated the Northstar with Cadillac.
