Awesome specs but shame about the look. Really could have been an awesoem car had they not put those ugly f**kin lights in. Quite a dissapointment in the design department.

Re: 2006 Vette Z06

I wonder how long it will take HSV to get one of those engines in a GTS...

Re: 2006 Vette Z06

I think it look very nice except for the lights. The general shape of the lights is nice, but I don't like the yellow background in them. If they just used the regular C6 headlight assembly this car would be perfect!

Re: 2006 Vette Z06

The Vette has had pop-up lights since 1963 so in some ways it's a tradition but the car also has to move with the times. More and more exotic (and not so exotic) sports cars have done away with pop-ups.
I think it looks great, also note the width of those rear tyres.

Re: 2006 Vette Z06

nice specs but i still dont like the fact (or the look) that they cut 5 inches off the length of the new model compared to the last model.
but id still have one either way.

Re: 2006 Vette Z06

Is it just me or does the front end resemble a Ferrari 360?

And the lights make it look like a Mitsubishi 3000GT.

Great car, especially the LS2 but personally i prefer the look of the C5. Gotta love those pop-ups!
