So I guess most people can't tell the difference between base, Z06 and ZR1.
But it can also be argued that at the high end spectrum of anything, only the people who "know" will know the difference.

I am sure 75% of the population doesn't know that an AMG S65 costs 3x more than the same bodied S350 or whatever the lowest S-class is in Canada.

The same logic goes that 99% of the population will not realize that a Piaget or DeWitt wristwatch with funny looking dials costs up to $500,000 CAD without gold or diamonds.

As a side note; if I were a car collector I probably would buy a ZR-1. Its much more obscure than a GT-R, and due to its rarity would likely hold its value more. The old ZR-1 was nuts; back in '93 it was already ripping 0-60 in 3.8 or something ridiculous like that.

Agree with achiam.

Another good example is the Murcielago. Most non-enthusiasts would not know the difference between it and the Gallardo.

also if u cant tell the difference between a z06 and a regular vette no offense u wasted your money cuz your not an anthusiast i know thats not how u spell it, but anyway the z06 from the front has a different hood with functional air vent, and its not noticable 2 the eye but its actaully wider and the rims r different the stance just looks way more aggresive.
