A very tidy installation. With all that HP, dunno how the tyres stay on the wheels or the rubber sticks to the road.

Absolutely. Whether it's...

- the laws of physics
- law enforcement, or
- the law of unintended consequences...

...having 700hp on tap in a relatively lightweight car like the Z06 probably requires a particular amount of self restraint.

Just imagine that 0 to 100mph run! And the sound of the blow-off valve as you row through the gears at full throttle.

Lot of cash, there.

Definitely requires feathering the throttle on launch. Discernment over just "punching" it. If I remember correctly what I've read elsewhere, the owner would have to bin the run-flat tires in favor of "normal" performance tires, if he wants absolutely the best traction and cornering.
