I don't think the anticipated 1 or 2 thousand units will affect GM's overall CO2 that much. I am sure the extra cash people are willing to pay for this will offset any potential penalties.

Also, the article states a 0-60 time of 3.5. I would expect it to be faster since the Z06 has been clocked at 3.6 already. I thought this will have better traction than the Z06 as well.

Heh actually those are Z06 prototypes that I shot back in October 2004.

I was at the track today and as soon as the Vette came out to the track I noticed the camo and knew it was the ZR1. The announcer didn't even know what was going on at first, but then he said it was the blue devil and that one of the team corvette drivers was driving it. Overall the thing seemed really fast it had a pretty big gap between the test cars, which were a Audi A8, Porsche GT3 and a Vette. It sucks because when the car came out on the track was right when we came back from eating, so I had left my camera in my car, so didn't get any pictures of it

No kidding. Why slap such an ugly cover on what has to be a very tasty engine?

Only part of it looks to be the engine cover...the silver part is actually the top of the intercooler.

That's hot. All the more reason to lose that covering. Of course, I said the same thing to Selma Hayek at last year's Oscars. Our relationship has been strained ever since...
