Just a few. :-x Grey market import, new, as well as RHD conversion. I reckon this car is not the sort of thing that one sees every day. Reminds me of that saying, "Last of the V8 interceptors"!

The Z06, with its wide-body fenders, looks wicked in yellow.

Set the cruise control on 300km/h and drive to Perth! Is there an enforced speed limit once you get out of town?

Yep, most (maybe all, now)states have a maximum speed limit of 110kph.

Sounds sensible. However, I suppose that there are remote parts with very long straights where, during the daylight hours, this speed limit might seem, er, a bit too cautious.

Until recently, the wild Northern Territory had no speed limit. It also has the country's highest per capita consumption of alcohol. You can do the math.

Understood.

For the record, I can attest to having participated in the consumption part of that equation (but not the driving part) when I was in NT. Different from sipping a Chardonnay in the Yarra Valley with a BHP mate who had lived in New York. And I say: vive those differences. Both were fun.

Any details on who did the conversion?

It's a shame Australia requires the side indicator, just doesn't sit right with the Z06 badge :(

Boring request, but do you have any close-ups of the glove box area. It looks a bit concave in the last picture.

Ha! :-x That particular bottle... no. But I did have plenty of the standard stubby variety. I also did a few days in Kakadu in one of those three-axle trucks, and I have a funny story about that which I'll share another time.

:-) In some places, they might not catch you, because they're not even there. I mean, some rural places are just empty.

On the other hand, I suppose there are occasional stories in the news of some guy getting caught and making a run for it.

Thing is: a yellow Z06 is probably not the easiest car to "blend in" if you're trying not to be noticed in rural towns. Escape the cops in one rural town... ok. But when you get to the next town, it's not like they will not have been informed and they won't notice ya. I'm talking about very rural places of course.

true fact is yellow is the most safest colour as well.....
imagane booming along the nulabor in this thing, no cops in sight, until a fixed wing plane or a helicopter scream overhead and there is a copper waiting at the next town with a ticket just for you....

seems like you like yellow in everything,
side marker BMW, by looking at the glove box its a QLD conversion, cut and shut of the dash, and I don't have a spare $200K also not a fan of C6, spent quite a bit of road time in one last year in the US
