Btw the cobra is a one trick pony. If that's what you want. The boss was is the better choice

I wouldn't say "destroy" but depending on which track it is a very close match up. i would say almost evenly matched on most tracks.

ironically just saw this video posted today by OC3. C6 Vette vs E90 DCT M3 at Autoclub Speedway. As you can see the Vette destroys the M3 in acceleration. Obviously in this video the M3 driver is much more skilled than the Vette.

Start at the 3:50 mark:

Looks like its got flares. I'd bet it was a z06 just based off of the straight line speed

I don't think it has the rear brake duct scoop things that are usually located directly behind the driver & passenger doors.

Those are forward facing, hard to tell from the video. But you can see the Z06 badge by the fender scoops.
