    It’s fake news but if it were true, it would make ordering the new AMG GTC an easy decision.

    So guys/C8 knowledgeable - Is this complete BS or real? I saw the same article and have good friend who purchased a 2022 Z51 but was/is considering selling it and ordering a Z06 -

    I sent this to him and told him to HOLD on doing anything and definitely not get rid of his Z51since he (like pretty much everyone else in the world) would rather stitch his face to the carpet than own an "E-Ray"

    Please advise if anyone knows anything - Most appreciated - Cheers :)

    I believe the resale value of your friends z51 is going be very strong for at least the next couple of years. I don't see a compelling reason to part with it now to order a car that won't be available anytime soon. It only cost me a thousand dollar (refundable) deposit to get on my dealers zo6 list.

    I doubt I'll keep both, but until the zo6 is available I'll be enjoying the hell out of the z51.

    Interesting- That is PRECISELY what I told him- Even before the April fools joke- I totally agree- His Z51 was a ordered car- Hypersonic grey with beige interior- well optioned- yellow rotors etc- Frankly, I don't think he will benefit from the Z06 but that's his choice and money- but as you stated he should enjoy the Z51 until the Z06 is in hand and only then make the decision- Thanks for taking time to respond- Cheers :cool:

    Guy put down his deposit on a known good dealer, dealer decides to add on 50K ADM for charity. Is that even legal?

    Total BS. Plus $50 large; might as well toss the $ into the toilet.

    I heard it was being done for “charity”.

    Is it legal, who knows. Probably just as legal when a brand dealer offered me an early Z06 for 100K over MSRP.

    It's going to be impossible to get a 2023 car at MSRP isn't it? Unless you are already on the list, and even that is not guaranteed. I know Kerbeck and other big dealers probably have wait lists that stretch years.

    You think he's lying, or at least grossly exaggerating?

    I watched the whole video and (assuming he's legit) he's had some bad luck with dealers.

    I find it almost impossible to believe that any dealership would build a compulsory donation into a deal, let alone one fifty percent of the purchase.

    There’s a decent amount of buzz about C8 ZO6 production starting June 16th.

    This seems a little early given that dealer allocations and option price lists haven’t been announced/revealed yet.

    Reps at the NYC Auto stated late May for Z06 pricing announcement. That would align with mid June production.

    Where is the Lamborghini model to compare ? :D

    No manual transmission option with the Z-06 - unfortunately.

    The GT-3 market has been over-inflated, for years.

    11,155 F cars produced in 2021. Over-production does not help with re-sale values!


    The Z-06 is a bargain at MSRP and is mechanically quite impressive.

    I would like to purchase a nice 2014/15 Z/28. This car is still a secret. Just waiting for the car market to make a correction. Pre Covid, a perfect sub 3,000 mile car was in the bottom 40's. Not going to pay the 20K Covid premium. Just waiting.
