      Oh lawd...

      It's a monster. I've driven modded cars that are faster than this but its just not the same. Pretty everything I look for in a sportscar was there. It was like my C5 turned up to 1000.

      In short, Porsches, GT-R's, etc are cool but I still bet with the Plastic Fantastic.

      Remind me of a Batmobile.

      Cars like this I relate to motorcycles. They scare the ish out of me now but I know I'd get used to the power/speed eventually and then I'd end up D-E-D dead.

      That is why when you become comfortable with your bike, when it does not scare you, it is best to buy a faster bike.

      Did it have any mods done to it? I drove one with just a pulley on it and I was sold, just an animal.

      Not a fan of the wheels, but that's an easy fix.

      Bone stock, 250 miles. I'd imagine with a pulley and tune it would be vicious. The long gears dampen the delivery compared to the other modded 'Vettes I've driven though.

      Is that a pic of the one you drove? Looks vicious, love it. The one I'm planning to pick up in a few years will look just like that one.

      Were you able to take any vids?

      I used to work at an auction and I really couldn't believe they let us (people from a staffing agency) drive them, it was insane

      Would rather take the 2012 GS with the Mag ride control. Prefer the country rides rather than auto-x.

      Not a good enough driver to not kill myself with the ZR1 or the Z06

      Does your right foot have a mind of its own?
