The point is that power may be limited prior to a certain threshold or mileage is reached. Sounds like wishful thinking but it is possible.

They mention that the LT4 is not eligible due to the base price of the vehicle it is available in being higher than $60k. Maybe it will be considered in a future ZL1.

This is a great list. I really appreciate the fact that they have a $60k price cap on the vehicle, acknowledging that making a great engine is all the more difficult when it has to be sold at...

Well it is easier to make a 4 valve motor meet emissions standards than a 2 valve, but I don't think that is the main reason. If you look around the industry, there are fewer and fewer high...

If true that is an awesome price. I am very interested to learn more about this motor and car. Between this and the scat pack challenger, I hope this pushes GM to make an option above the basic...

Agreed, my TBSS has 20" rims and only one size higher aspect ratio than a Camaro SS (275/45/20). That is ridiculous and unnecessarily large on the Camaro. Hopefully the proportions of the 6th gen...

Well, for what it is worth, they list the M6 and the A8 together and show that both hit 60 in under 4 seconds. So if accurate it means M6 0-60 is 3.9 seconds and A8 0-60 is probably going to be .2...

This thing looks awesome, and should be a great performer. It sounds like it will be $65k + though based on the specs so far.

Well, they also called the CR-V an SUV, and gave it the SUV of the year despite the fact it can barely tow a bicycle rack.

Are these still 20" rims? They really need to go to 19's for a lot of reasons, 20's are for trucks. I'm afraid from the spacing to the rotor/caliper they still look like 20's to me :frown:
