2002-2004 z06 included a 405hp LS6 V8. Capable of putting down very low 12s and 117mph traps. Amazing handling, only 3,113 lbs (200lbs lighter than a regular vette), 50/50 weight distribution, insane brakes (60-0 stopping in 108 ft), will out run ANY car less than 120k dollars on a road course. First automotive use of balsa wood (lightest wood on the planet) as filler for floorboards to save weight. Titanium exhaust saves 20lbs, top speed 180mph, 0-60 4.0sec, 1/4 mile 12.25sec at 117mph. Greatest sports car for its 52k dollar factory price tag lb per lb.
