    "That approach paid off with a blistering 4.1-second dash to 60 mph en route to a 12.5-second, 115.0-mph quarter mile. Those figures line up almost perfectly with those of our best 2002 C5-generation Z06."

    They said "Naturally, we opted for the revised Tremec six-speed manual transaxle" Yet the car pictured is an automatic.



    I guess it was another one of those "car pictured is for photgrapic purposes"

    Yeah, that was a great test, those new Vettes are amazing.

    As far as the cars pictured, that happens alot if you read those magazines. They'll have a test car, and a different car for photos.

    Thanks for sharing the article

    I like the features it's got (free-er flowing exhaust) and the gearing

    I'm surprised though, that the C5-Z06 was rated at 12.2 in the 1/4 mile, and 0-60 in 3.9sec
    Still the 08 Vette is a fine machine. I'll bet it would respond nicely to mods
