No need to watch the episode. Clarkson would blast it as overweight, too big and not up to European standards. Then all three would be surprised at how fast it is.

The Corvette had the LS9 and made ~60 more horsepower so the "rule" still applied.

What are you referring to by the ZL1 and C6?



GM confirmed the LT1 but there hasn't been any statements on the power rating.

I read it. You don't think 320 degree oil temps after a few hot laps is an issue for the "ultimate track Corvette"? Even Chevrolet said the auto runs even hotter.

Fair enough. I was just trying to point out that the Chevelle was larger than the Camaro so to bring it back as a small ATS sized car makes no sense.

Well, yeah I could have made that more clear. My point was that I wouldn't want the Chevelle to come back and just end up more expensive and slower than the Camaro.

The Chevelle needs to stay dead. Chevy lacks the engines to bring it back where it needs to be. It would end up bigger, heavier, more expensive and slower than the Camaro.

I would love to see GM roll out a mid engine Zora with a twin turbo 6.2 pushing 800 hp. I couldn't afford it but I would be pretty stoked to see it happen.

I doubt it.

Maybe the LGX, TT3.0, LT1 and LT4 but, as far as I know, the TTV6s not cheap engines and are heavy so it would be roughly the weight and cost of the LT1 but down on power and torque.
