there's no such thing as a "cheaper" V8 model at launch... the L99 is the 400hp cylinder deactivation engine that only comes with the automatic transmission... the 422hp engine is the LS3 and is only available with the manual... do not be surprised if the manual transmission option is a price adder, as GM is wanting to sell the heck out of the autos.

also dont be surprised if these numbers, much like the 361hp in the G8, are way low for what the car is actually producing.
