blue devil corvette anyone?!

So awhile back motor trend rumored of a 600hp monster of a corvette code named the blue devil, that in theory will run with the top guns at ferrari, austin martin, Porsche, and the like

http://www.leftlanenews.com/2006/05/...corvette-a-go/

So what do yall think...good idea or no? This could be a great car if they do it right and it would be much more affordable. I personally think it would be great to have another true american supercar along with the Ford GT and the Saleen S7.....and a 600hp corvette would just be kick a**

I've got a soft spot for Vettes, and I love the Z06. It'll be interesting to see this project come thru. A six-figure Vette might be a tough sell, but I'm sure it'll go and turn like hell, if its gonna slot above the Z06.

i just dont like how a lot of ppl talk crap about the vettes saying how they cant be compared to ford gts/vipers stuff like that...i mean come one...the vette only has a v8 in it that thing makes some serious hp for just a v8...it would be just as good..probably better if it had a supercharged 10 cylinder in it like some cars

In track testing by American automotive journals, the GT3 managed a 0-60 time of 4.0 seconds and a quarter mile time of 12.3 seconds at 118 miles per hour. During skidpad testing the vehicle posted 1.03g, higher than any other production car in history except Ferrari's Enzo supercar.

I am just saying tick for tat a hopped up supercar version of a vette will never be close to the hopped up supercar version of a Porsche...


I am not saying that it wont be cool, it just wont beat a 911 GT3...and for the same amount of cash i would take the GT3.

yeah, a 7 liter v8. porsche is making about 80 hp less with an engine almost half the displacement. and the carrera gt is making over 100 hp more with a 5.7 liter. and both of these cars a NA.

yeah but that carrera is still a v10, and not to mention a whopping 400,000 dollars more than a vette lol. you could buy EIGHT MORE CORVETTES FOR THAT PRICE!! and i dont care if i get the porsche name, i'm not gonna drive something with 10/16 mpg, the vette 16/26
cmon, at least the corvette is "affordable" that carrera is for people who could drop 100 thousand dollars into a used toilet and wont even flinch.

uhh dont be so sure, and dont underestimate the potential of the corvette. Um for one, the Z06, yes the Z06 set record lap times at the ring, ahead of many cars that were over double its price. The Z06 beat out all others such as both the gallardo and murclelago, the pagani zonda, the GT3 and it is within fractions of a second from the fastest time of a 996 GT2....Z06 times were 7 min 42 seconds, the GT3s was 7 mins 43 seconds. So uhh, you dont think this Blue devil will be able to keep up with a GT3. Oh and the fastest time of the Carrera GT is 7:28, average times are 7:32, so the Z06 is only 10 seconds slower. Now this Blue devil, is going to be more powerful then the Z06, more race and tracked tuned, and its going to have 600+ hp, uhh im sure itll be able to hang with just about any supercar, if not have them looking at its tail lights. This link will take you to the most recent track times just incase you dont believe me.

Updated Nurburgring lap times...

Enough said, this Blue devil is going to be the fastest car chevy has every built and the fastest vette every built, and one of the fastest factory cars in the world. Oh i like how chevy is thinking about adding a driving school into the price, thats really cool, and usually only offered with higher end cars like porsches, ferraris and aston martins. Good for them, oh and i suspect the blue devil will be around 100grand.....not bad considering youll be able to go up and nip a Carrera in the ass that cost over 3 times as much.
