I heard GM had the new Z06 at the track, so we ran down to take a look at it. When we got there people were milling around it and a couple engineers were answering questions (and there were free hotdogs and sodas, I'm not joking) but you could immediately tell that it wasn't a track event as much as it was just an exhibit (boo!). When they finally said that they could take some people for "rides around the track" there was a mass exodus which left the GM reps baffled, then...
If I were looking for a cheap, fun, and fast driver's car that's unique, handsome, and sports a respected badge, I wouldn't look any further than this:
US 4C headlights are all like the Euro-spec roadster:
Left: US coupe, Right: EU coupe
Edit: Oh, and the ECU firmware is unlocked on the US 4C. (No doubt they know if you mess with it, though, and it voids your warranty.)
That's what I understand, as well. Also they only make about $3000 in profit off each one they sell, all that carbon fiber and aircraft grade aluminum. They're a very solid buy, as I don't believe any of them will ever depreciate.
