And using a 0-60 time as your yardstick is really really narrow. A ZR1(and probably the new Z06) will run with a Turbo S on a track.
You are correct about the 0-60 being narrow and I think it would depend on the track you placed the cars. I was merely pointing out that on economies of scale the Germans are capable of producing a car that has "bang for the buck." Of course, the Porsche is no Veyron but provides the same sense of acceleration to a certain point--especially when speaking of street driving. If you want to get right down to it, I believe the car in your picture provides the the best bang for the buck available right now. It is on my short list of the next car I would like to own.
