...because....well it's rumored to be making more than that. Little FYI the Z06 Badges don't have number on them right now. ;)

This news comes after the MT Z06 1/4 Mile Time of 11.5 @ 127

Supposedly, that guy wasn't a great driver :thumb:

Manufacturers have all gotten leary of pushing their advertised HP numbers too high, as in a day and age where you can easily verify the claim at your local dyno, they don't want to risk having some of them that fall under that number come back with the owner's claiming they got screwed and demanded upgrades or new motors. Ford got stung badly with this on the 99 Cobra, and consequently the 03/04 Cobra is rated well under what they typically produce. The C5 Z06 was no different, my 03 cranked out ~423 at the flywheel, well north of the rated 405, stock down to the factory air filter. I don't see any reason to think the C6 Z06 won't be any different, as GM is gonna make sure that 99+% of the cars will make AT LEAST 505. If it's north of that, good. :D

Here are a few other 505's to consider:

http://www.msichicago.org/exhibit/U505/index.html

http://www.us.levi.com/spr05a/levi/...older_id=2534374305312410&bmUID=1123959028761

http://www.505.ca/

http://www.cahighways.org/505-805.html#505

http://www.addresses.com/area_codes/505.html

In other words, put on your 505's, jump in your 505hp Z06, visit the U-505 in Chcago, dial 505 area code,drive California I-505 then head up to Canada and sail a 505 sailboat.

By then you will not question our 505's. :p

I've heard from a Corvette Manager that 505 hp badge will be on the customer cars.
