Production Top Speeds V6-V8?

Looking for actual Top speeds, not the calculations, I've searched and searched, anyone know if they exist yet?

directly on the Camaro website. All Camaro's will be electronically limited to 155mph, except the LS, which will be at 118. (all because of tire ratings)

but with a flux capacitor, 1967 is well within reach.

Z Rated tires on the 2SS - 149mph and up. 155 limit doesn't make sense

Edit before someone else tags me... makes sense now... The "W" rating was added in response to faster supercars and the fact that "Z" rating didn't have a max safe speed listed.

oooooook... I think I've posted this like 5 times now, but I'm going to say this one more time and then the next person who asks this question is going to be given some stupid answer that makes no sense at all.

the TIRES are not the limiting factor on the SS models... its the Vehicle Speed Sensors... they are designed to work up to 155mph... at speeds above 155mph, they are no longer 100% accurate and, therefore, the speed limiter is set to 155mph.

again, it is NOT THE TIRES that is keeping the Camaro SS limited to 155mph.

My guess is without the computer it would hit between 160 and 170 (SS).

Any more would be foolish without roll cage, fire suit, helmet and on a proper track with someone to put out fire and or call EMS.
