Nice. A buddy of mine just got the new Grand Sport and it's definitely a mean machine.

The C5's are a great bang for the buck car. A stock 2002 Z06 has very similar performance specs to a 2011 Grand Sport. If i had the money I would rather have the Grand Sport but I think my next car will be a used C5Z possibly C6Z.
