Love the yellow color on the ZL1, nice choice. Reminds me of a funny story about a car salesman I spoke to back when the very first Yellow Z06's (505 hp) came out. I live in Bakersfield , home to Indy driver Rick Mears, and they released a special Yellow Rick Mears Edition and one of the first ones on display was at the Bakersfield dealer. I dropped in just to take a look and the salesman asked why I would want a car that would do 280 mph? I said don't you mean 180 mph....to which he said NO, I mean 280. Well I said I don't think a $90,000 stock Corvette will go 60-70 mph Faster than a several Million dollar Indy Car....to which he just walked away embarrassed.
