The Z06 is also going 20-25K over sticker as well. The Ford dealer on Staten Island laughed when I walked in and said to start at 20 K over sticker.
Here is a question? If the car gets stolen or destroyed, will insurance cover the 20 k over sticker?
Yeah, so long as you were smart and got gap insurance that covers the total financed amount. I do that on any car I purchase.
For those blessed people who can buy one of these things outright, I am not sure how it works. But if you can fork over 70k in cash, you can probably afford to replace it when it gets destroyed anyway. I am pretty sure the insurance company would have to bite the bullet though, if the car was destroyed.
Even if the Z06 is being jacked up 20k, it is still a great bargain. For under 100k you can have a car that would only be beaten by something like an Enzo, or a Saleen S7. Even there, the margin isn't that great. 250K performance for less than half of that.
As far as style and looks and personality though, the vette is dog boring. I swear my stang turns more heads than a vette does, where as something like an S7 would truly make every head turn as you drove by. The shock value makes it worth a lot more I guess.
Anyway, the Roush cars are a better deal IMHO.
