Uhm - this is a little lop sided "test".

The new car is 100hp more powerful than the old car - so of course it is 100hp faster as well.

C5 Z06 405bhp (365rwhp) - 3100lb - $50,000 - Interior design and materials circa 1995/6
C6 Z06 505bhp (460rwhp) - 3100lb - $75,000 - Interior design and materials circa 2003/4

This is correct.

We saw your photos of the car at the race track - so I have to ask you, when you looked at the car and mentally compared it to BMW's, Audi's, Yugo's and Holden's did you then turn to the owner and say "Fuck your car looks like shit compared to these other cars"...

Or did you look and hear and see and think to yourself "Holy Mother of God" as it blasted past on yet another lap.

I think we know the answer to that one.

Isn't that the point once the cars arrive at the race track though?

Doesnt a track day sort of filter out all the magazine and bench racing bullshit and the cars begin to stand on their own merits - and the interior means diddly squat.
