And the TT ZR1 made by few are fster the th Ford GT. The Fod GT isn't made any more. Plain and simple. Even when it was it was not faster then a Z06. Look it up.

So again GM is winning in the over all performance car.

The GT500 will cost as much as a Z06. Hell they do already once you get it loaded. SO yes they are in the same class.

The Sper Snake cost as much as a ZR1. Yet it is slower.

How is that? You buy the ZR1 and Z06 right from a GM dealer. They make and produce it. It is not some other company making them. as in the hennesy.

I concur the zr1 is cancerous!! Gm is winning at the higher part of the spectrum but in the trenches were most of the battling is done the mustang GT and v6 are smoking the camaro's. ***. ZL1 camaro Will be sick but a 5.0 with the extra money in mods will smoke that *** all day long. He may have warranty but at the end of the day mustang is still KING of the road!!!

I would much rather hand a Z06 it's *** in a fully build blown little 5.0 rather then in a super snake. I hate over priced cars and the stupid grins the owners give me when their sitting next to me at the light. I've got issues.

I've yet to run a SS. I've ran down a '12 Auto Challenger R/T. He said I cheated because I pulled away too soon and he wasn't ready. Lol, kids.

I raced an Audi S8 V12 in my Challenger and got my *** handed to me. Quatro, Rain and v12 vs. rear wheel drive, rain and v8.... what was I thinking. My excuse to this was ignorance on my part.... plain and simple.

Yes it is and it handles extremely well for being as big as it really is. I blew my driverside front tire at 125 mph, no issues controlling it and pulling over safely..... not a scratch, dent ding or anything. That being said I sold it for ONE safety issue I could not live with having kids. There is no seatback forward lever on the driver seat. If the car gets t-boned on the passenger side... no one is getting out of the driverside quickly. That is HUGE safety issue for me.... enough so that I sold it for that reason alone.

Wow! I didn't know that. That's kinda cheap. I wonder why that is so? I agree, my daughter goes everywhere with me and her booster is right behind my seat. If I couldn't easily get to her I'd get rid of the car too.

I guess because Ford doesn't make a car that would go up against the vette. So the mustang has to take one for the team. So to speak. Lol

If Ford really wanted to they could build some thing to compete against the Corvette!.. But they don't see that as a wise and profitable move so they won't!... The Mustang and the Corvette are not is the same class so it is ignorant to compare the two!..

If said mustang is 70k Like a loaded GT500 is then it is in the same price category as a Z06. Same with the Super Snake. Its 90K which would put it in same category as a Z06 and a GTR.

Everything......... I dont own a vette because I need back seats and the ones in the Mustang are just fine for a normal sized person and perfect for my kids. I can also put a substantial amount of groceries or other things in my trunk... which you cannot do with a vette. I dont speak out of the side of my neck.... I owned a 2003 C5 so I can first handedly say there is NO comparison between a Vette and a Mustang, 2 cars built for 2 different purposes.

How is that? You buy the ZR1 and Z06 right from a GM dealer. They make and produce it. It is not some other company making them. as in the hennesy.
The gt500 wont cost as much as the z06... and in base form (no z07) package I think it could be a good race. There have been roumors about the return of the ford Gt and that will be the true competitor. On the track It will be a good race zr1 vs gt500 in the quarter due to the poor launches in the vette but the zr1 will slaughter on the road course.

You can not compare two cars just off of price!.. Look at what they were built for then compare!.. GTR vs Super Snake?.. Fair comparison!.. GT500 vs Corvette?.. A two seat sports car vs a four seat coup!.. They are two different class of cars!..
