My 427ci Corvette Z06 meets my new BRZ!

I just picked up my new BRZ this week and figured I'd get a couple of nice shots of them together while they were both clean and polished up.

The BRZ will be my daily driver and so far I love it. I've been following this car for a while and pre-ordered mine in March. The handling and shifting live up to all the hype from the magazines. The balance when thrown hard into a turn is amazing, give the car a little throttle and back end just rotates, like a big go-kart. The interior is great with perfect seats, steering wheel and ergonomics. I can't really comment on the power as I'm still breaking it in, but it will be quick enough for a daily driver. 2700lbs+200hp is plenty fun and I've got 600hp waiting for me when I feel like driving the Vette. I'm also averaging 30mpg and see about 34mpg when cruising on the highway in 6th.

Nice shots -- I'll have to do something similar when my FR-S arrives to join my black C6 (stock though).

Looking at your modded Vette, I'll bet the BRZ doesn't stay stock for too long, even if it is the "daily driver".

@ BillY2KFRC, Man i think if you modified your BRZ up and refined it like you did the Vette, it'd look great. If you intend on modifying the BRZ, i will be very excited to see pics.

Gorgeous! I was looking at C5 Z06s before I settled on the BRZ. I just couldn't justify daily driving one in the Northeast every day so I went with the BRZ. I'm a huge Vette fan and I hope to pick up a 06-07 LeMans Blue Z06 when the prices come down. Congrats on now owning 2 Zs!!!

Thanks, nice to see another Vette/BRZ combo here!

I am PLANNING to keep it stock, with the exception of maybe intake/exhaust mods. But we'll see how long that lasts, lol.

Thank you. I don't think I'll ever go nuts with the BRZ like I did the Vette. One money pit is more than enough, at least for now.

Thank you. It's definitely quick, it'll spin the tires in 4th on a cold day.

Thanks, it's an ode my favorite band, Iron Maiden, and very fitting to the personality of the car as well.

Thanks, they are definitely fun to drive, even stock. Modded Z06s are just for crazy people.

They are actually pretty good daily drivers. I daily drove my first C5 10 years ago with the exception of heavy snow, probably 20k miles a year. But the BRZ is definitely more suited for the daily commute, plus, adding a C6Z in the best color (lemans blue) would be amazing.
