Ford GT or 2008 Corvette ZR-1?

Reading the ZR-1 thread got me thinking a little bit... which would you prefer? A Ford GT or current ZR-1 Vette?

Id have to go with the GT even though it gives up a bit of performance. I just think its that much more special and EONS better looking. What about you?

After seeing BOTH at the track this weekend, no question.

CORVETTE Wins by a mile.

What an awesome piece of engineering.

They were testing the "new" ZR 1 at the track as well and itis an absolute BEAST.

The Z06 is the ONLY car thatI thought itwas "easy" to go fast.

We had novices yesterday and today that were hitting 130+ MPH on the main straight and out performing the Ford by nearly 3 seconds.

Thanks for responding guys! But dont forget that the GT has the GT40 nameplate to fall back on. In case some of you didnt know the GT40's racing heritage, its the ONLY American car to trump Ferrari at Le Mans. Even better was that the GT40s finished 1-2-3. Take that, Ferrari!

Thats what im not a fan over. The GT40 was designed to beat ferrari at Le mans. The corvette was designed as a fun little sporty car for the average american. it just happened to turn into a beast

Thats cool. I just figured Id explain because there are a lot of people out there who think the GT was just a modern concept. Oy vey. Some people! lol

Looks like Im the only one taking the GT? lol Oh well, I just think its a sweeter ride, even if outclassed in several performance categories. The GT is the automotive equivalent of Heidi Klum.

lmmfao at this thread! zr1 hands down! the gt doesnt even come close. the minute 3.55 inch bore of the gt is no match for the incredible ls9. in fact ford has never made a v8 that can compete with the lsx based engines. the incredible power they make and the awesome fuel mileage is so far beyond ford modular engines that its not even funny. ford needs to totally scrap these mod motors and go back to pushrods. the gt-tt is the only gt i would own, and even then the car still costed $225,000 and needed a custom fabbed twin turbo setup to make it what it should have been stock. the $125,000 price tag of the zr1 makes it honestly the best bang for the buck sports car ever made. period.

i know the zr1 will walk all over the gt in just about everything.

but i would rather have the gt, the majority of the public are just gonna see the zr1 as just another vette, the gt is its own car, and IMO looks better than the zr1

i know im gonna get flamed for this, but i never liked vettes to begin with

I've gotta go with the GT... its such a great looking car and in the real world there really isnt any place that you could take advantage of EITHER of them.
