  • C7z/zr1

    With the changes to the Auto world then the pressure recent change in the attitude towards Oil and it's future.
    The C7 Z06 and it brother ZR1 at a greater extent look to become collectors soon. The lt4/5 now look to become known as the best gas engines ever from GM. The future of the future gas engines looks bleak.
    Those cars will go up from here. The Z06 with less only 35k total US cars. It is not many! The Corvette line plans IMO may change and the C8 line up cut short from Pressures
    in many directions VERY SAD!

      Those were good cars as well. Just not as easy to make big power. Not as good of drivers as the C7Z's . I had 1 C6, two of the C6Z06 and the C6 ZR1 as well. They don't have quite
      the handing and ease of add on HP being N/A engines except the ZR1 which is a beast as well but I daily drove the ZR1 vs the C7Z06 for maybe 4-5 months . IMO The C7 Z06
      in M7 is the better machine.

      Then the choice of the Auto in the C7Z06 is nice as well. Love having both the 800 hp plus M7 and the 800 plus A8 C7Z06's.
      Both are BEASTS. Both run like stock but on steroids. Both run on 92 pump but both gain even more with 101 octane. Both can take about any car on the road. With very few Hyper car's not with standing but it can compete many of those as well then you can up the ante if you want.
      The A8 can do 9 second passes at low 140's with tire. The M7 is a monster at highway speeds. Both still rock 25 mpg quite easy. The ease with the HUGE aftermarket support and low cost DIY satisfaction is really is what make the C7Z06/Zr1 special. Some cars that have wanted to play were dispatched by bus lengths.
      I see these cars going up in price.
