I highly doubt it will beat a C6 Z06. Maybe the base C6 and MAYBE the grand sport, but the Z06 has run 10's upwards of 128 mph with nothing but tires, and a really good driver.

thats an electrical/accessory 12V plug. Just flip it open and plug in!

I saw this article. For anyone with the newest Camaro Now: is there any extra/new info in there not covered in other mags?

Well, the car hasnt been produced yet so at this point, EVERYTHING you read in magazines (performance-wise) is pure speculation. The way I see it, this car will likely have a few more than 550HP. I would guess the final numbers to be somewhere in the 560s but not more than 575ish.

Love this car from the start . Can we merge the StingRay high tech interior to this one, and keep it at low 50 please?

Otherwise, it is hot, she's got hips to match, and the stamina/aggresive humpf to match... all in one tight package.

Does anyone know how the steering wheel grip is like when you drive a lot during hot day? DC/VA can get a little bit cold in the winter and slightly hot in the summer.

Yeah thanks. That's like the one part of the interior I haven't noticed after looking at thousands of these pictures for the last few years. I probably would have noticed it if I had ever sat in a fifth gen but I refuse to until I get my own. If I did it would make this long wait even worse.

Well, for what its worth, i know what you mean. I sat in a 98 camaro SS and never got around to getting my hands on an LS1 fbody. I wanted the car BADLY too. I should have never, sat in or driven it.

carbon fiber is unless it's painted over like it should be.

I'm not holding my breath on that one, but I would definitely drop some G's for a hardtop vert. I was talking to a friend with a new '11 convertible the other day and he said that at speed he can see the middle section above the back seat "sort-of flapping." I would only do a 'vert if it were hardtop.

It would be rad if they introduced something like that as a Transformers special edition.

Besides that though...

The Vette just beat the GT500 by a tiny amount, and thats the GT500 at 550hp, not the 2012 at 620hp. I SO want to buy this car but I will have to wait for the real numbers.

That was kinda expected, but not good to hear. It is IMPERATIVE for me that any ZL1 that I drive should beat a stock GT500 of the same model year with a touch of margin to compensate for my occasionally-less-than-razor-sharp shifting.

Techhie guys, two questions:

Let's assume the ZL1 comes in stock around 565 HP. This probably means we would need around 85 more HP to beat the lighter 620 HP GT 500. (565+85=650 HP ZL1)

I know we're missing specifics, but indulge my fantasyland for a moment. What would we have to do to get those numbers, and how close could we come without voiding the warranty?

I really want to beat the Ford-ponies in my Camaro. It's way too easy on my Hayabusa.


.


BTW, here's some Drool-Candy from my ride around Rim Road in El Paso the other day. Enjoy.

That's a hard one. I think thats impossible without voiding the warranty. I heard on the corvette boards that a Z06 owner whos 100 % stock LS7 blew up wasn't covered because he painted his red engine cover a different color. They voided his warranty, BECAUSE HE PAINTED HIS ENGINE COVER!!! GM is finding every way possible to not do warranty work on their cars. If they can't void the warranty for whatever reason when you bring it in for a problem, they tell you it's supposed to do that. Getting warranty work done with GM is like pulling teeth.

It would be really nice if they offered the LS9 engine as an option. I'd pay another 10 grand for an LS9 lol
