When it comes to "engagement & fun" with performance cars, I still go with manual. After 40 years of driving, I still prefer manual in high performance car.

I wish we had some info on the Z/28 TQ compared to ZL1.
If the engine is a 7 liter N/A, then it should still have a nice Low End TQ below 4000 RPM.

I ALWAYS value your points, and yes, I have met Viper ACR, but I doubt Z/28 is going that extreme with Z/28 compared to ACR.

BUT, a Z/28 with that wing will look very HOT on the street and God...

My personal thought:
If Z/28 comes out with a N/A 7 Liter engine V.S. ZL1 with Lt4, I'd buy the Z/28.

Nothing beats a big N/A V8 engine, and I've had both styles S/C and TT.

I'm sure they can, but at some point GM said, LS7 liter is out of the picture due to Gas millage. Unless they build an LT7 that is still powerful and produces good MPG and emission.

I think it's the cam that is different and make it sound different.
If you put and LS7 and LT1 next to each other you will notice the pulsation is different. I really don't know why?

When I heard that car in low RPM, my first thought was, that sounds like an LS7 and not LT1. The pulsation sounded much more like LS7.

I highly doubt that wing will be in the production model. They're doing extreme down force from the front and the back. Neither that front or spoiler will make it to production.

You were right. After looking at the video, the third person who is opening the door, is a support team member and not a passenger.

Sorry, my bad. :happy0180:

No S/C here at all. It's all V8 N/A sound with open exhaust. Love the sound.

I wonder if it makes more power than SS model?

You can see here, the rear breaks locked first (not spining at all), then the front and caused it to go side ways.

I bet, that's an additional $15,000 on the top of approximately priced $65K ZL1. That bring it to an $80K car. Personally, if I were to spend that kind of cash for a performance car, I'd buy a Z06,...

In video, they sound similar, that's what caught my attention. But again, it could be camera's MIC not catching all the frequencies.

You're right. In the video they do sound the same. So it must be the difference between in person sound and video sound. Because in person, I hear Z06 sound differently than in video.

Z06 is not a DD for sure. I speak from experience. ZL1 is the Z06 that you can drive it everyday and still have $15K in your pocket.
