The GT is simply spectacular in that color. Sad. The fact that the Z06 is 7 MPH faster on the straight than the Viper shows how much of a weight deficit it carries.

Thanks for the scans - sounds like the hard-edges have been rounded off of the Viper. "But that's what everyone wanted, that's what was always complained about.."

Bring on a N/A, lightweight ACR!

"The Viper hits 170mph, the GT 183mph, and the Corvette driver chickens out at 140mph"

Sounds about right.

The magazines love vettes for some reason, maybe they all get to keep them when the test is over.

Except that the magazines loved Vettes even when their HP numbers ranked down there with Dodge's latest station wagon offering. Sometimes even the newbie pricks glean a valid point.

Re: Automobile magazine Z06, Coupe and Ford GT comparo scans...

Two observations since I only scanned quickly through the pics:

1) The new coupe looks better than the Z in that last picture (the rear end of the Z looks chopped off, and the angle of the Viper really reminds me of gen II styling), but the GT is still art on wheels.

2) The driver positioning in the Z and the GT looks really cramped. I haven't seen either in person, so it could just be the test drivers preferred seating position, but I like to be able to stretch my legs a bit more than what those pictures reveal.

That 3/4 view of the new coupe is the best pic I've seen - and I know I saw that car in person and it didn't look as good as that pic.... but then again - I like stripes.

From the side, the rear end of the Vette looks like it was cut off with a cheese knife. Much like the "old" Gen II coupe, the GT looks GREAT from any angle. The Viper, well, I'll just keep my mouth shut (this time).

Thanks for the scans. Disappointing. I guess we knew that was coming.
