Saw this car at the fest.

FANTASTIC job.

I see in the video that traction is a bitch. hahaha

I'd like to see it run on a track with some DRs.

Cost aside, I'm a fan of the bodywork, minus the heritage grill - stock would be just fine.

Maybe the DRs would help the numbers a bit. I must admit I was expecting better numbers too with that setup.

Believe me, DRs on a track would make a WORLD of difference. The times on the video were not about the power/torque, or shifting gears, but ALL about the launch.

I give them props for keeping it real. Meaning they 'Run what they Brung' so to speak. They tested it as you'd buy it.

My car should run mid 11s with good DRs on a track. And before the cam went in I ran 12.3 at the fest with DRs. On the street with these donk wheels I'd be doing well to get into the 12s.

There's more coming! After Barrett-Jackson Edmunds/Insideline took delivery of both my ZL1's, the white convertible and the silver Coupe. The White Convertible had only 150 miles on it and is not even broken in yet. The Silver car is well broken-in with over 1600 miles and you'll see the results of that test in the next week or two.

Sorry, couldn't be more unimpressed. But it fits my first assessment of the Camaro Convertible SS; least impressive 400+ sports car I've driven.

And the price for all that 750 horse "unimpressment"? Ludicrous.

Its not that I'm knocking the Convertible Camaro, its just that this is not a car to race with. Its quite the piece of art, but (especially at that price), not a race car.

Sell it all you want, but why don't you talk to some regular 1/4 milers? Generally, trap speed is an indicator of power -stock tires or not. 1/4 time is more an indicator of traction and driver's ability.

C'mon fella's buck 17 trap? For 80k plus the car? Gotta be a more money than brains situation.

Sorry

those numbers don't add up, that car should be in the mid 10s on the 1/4. Not what I expected to see. Now it's up to SLP to come back and push that thing to it's limit.

And to all the guy's that say the vert's are not for speed , your just the kind of guy's I like to see in my mirror . Remember the weight difference isn't much and the car handles the same as the hard top.

A bump from 91 octane to 93 or 94 isn't gonna increase power from 617rwhp to 750rwhp. No if we are talking C16 then I could see the possibilities. I'm from Michigan and i'm pretty sure SLP is based in New Jersey.

I have a feeling that is a conservative tune on that ls7.

Conservative for sure. For the price difference I'll stick with my ZL585. Not much difference in numbers.

I'm sorry number one that car is nowhere as nice as the "Real" GM ZL1 coming out. The price is outrageous when I can wait and get the real deal. I can also up grade and MOD that ZL1 that I am buying and it will have same or more horse power!!! Bad move to bring out a car that GM has coming out from "GM". It looks like any other stock SS Camaro with an $800.00 bumper and logos stuck on it with the basic stock interior other than embroidery and liitle change up on the stock center of the seat. And a create motor LS7 with whipple supercharger.. LOL not even an LSA motor . No...maybe I sould upgrade my own SS I already own and can do it for cheaper and slap some ZL1 logos on it. Un no wait I'll buy a "real" one when it comes out from GM!
