Mercedes McLaren SLR 1.20.9

So it's the second fastest front engine rwd car.

My mistake. Still, it is very close to that, more impressive given the added power of the SLR, not to mention the price!

I'm with you on this one. I'll give up 2 seconds around their test track for the $200,000 + savings.

Faster than a 911 GT3 RS, base Zonda, Murcielago, F430, and a ton of other cars that cost a hell of a lot more. Almost as fast as a 360CS (by a tenth of a second) which was bred specifically for tracks exactly like theirs.

I'm impressed.

What are you comparing that to? All the other cars that are close to that time are easily 2 or 3x the cost. Not including the Atom. Some people need to get it through their thick heads that this car is one of the best deals of all time. Oh, my bad, it's a GM so it can't be good. :rolleyes:

I thought it would be faster than the Ford GT honestly.

Maybe I went overboard with the "disappointing" part of my statement. I should have said: "was expecting a bit more". :) And there is no need to say the Z06 does not represent a good deal. I know, it's a great car and I've never said otherwise. Yes it's a GM, yes the interior is ugly and crap, but the engine is ungodly fast and the chassis is extremely potent. :)

Other rags have tested the Z06 faster then the GT at a couple of different tracks. If you watched the video, it will show a slow start with the Vette.

an important point is that the Z06 was on runflats. on better tires i'm sure the stig could knock off at least another second. maybe slightly more than that?

thats an impressive time. the only car that you can really compare it with on performance is the ferrari f430 and it beat that. funny how all the cars surrounding it are easily triple the price tag. im not really a domestic guy and ill probably never buy one... but i have to give GM props on the c6 z06
