This past weekend I got the chance to test drive a 2005 C6 Z51. I hadn't seen one up close before and I must say that it changed my mind; about the looks at least. The pics in the magazines don't do it justice. It looked great! Black on black with the chrome optional rims,.. chrome looked a bit cheap though. I have a 2003 Z06 and wanted to see how the C6's 400hp compared to the Z's 405hp. I was expecting similar performance but found the "old" Z felt faster,.. this of course based upon my highly sensitive seat of the pants diagnostic tool. The C6 is very smooth and perhaps that masks its speed. No doubt it is a fast car. Great site guys/gals.
