Vs c6 corvette z06

Both completely stripped interiors, full track built (roll cage, front splitters, rear diffusers, gt wings, all the aero, tire/suspension, engine goodies, etc)

Which one would you rather have? (Pretty sure the c6 z06 will eat the e92 m3 on track LOL But still would you rather own a BMW or Chevrolet?)

For a track-only car, why would you not go with the Z06?

The M3 is the best dual-purpose car, so if you are going to strip out the interior and install a cage I don't see the point.

For stictly a performance/weekend car, the Z06 100% - it will embarrass the M3 in absolutely every way possible (straight line, braking, handling, etc...).

For the street? I'd take the M3. Much more comfortable and liveable on a day-to-day basis.

The Z06 is way faster. A lot of the common complaints like the bad seats and the harsh ride can be changed with aftermarket parts. They make coilover suspension that gets rid of the leaf spring rear suspension and a nice set of Recaros takes care of the junk seats that come in the vette.

Now if they can only make the interior nicer.

No denying the Z06 is the logical choice here but if it were me, id get a wrecked e92m3 or a 50k mile '08 for high $30k and immediately call Roman at ESS for the VT625. I just prefer the driving dynamica of the M3 over the Vette.

Well, you at least want the dash to look ok, not like some 1980s rental car.
