I have a feeling the ZL1 will rape the GT500 in the same way a 5.0 Mustang rapes the SS. I give a slight advantage to the Auto ZL1 just because most people that drive manuals (9/10) can't launch to save their lives. Once again only speculation the fact that a Camaro SS can even beat a 5.0 in a drivers race is beyond spectacular.

That being said I have no doubt in my mind that this will be a great car, a GT500 is my next car though. Want something new and the Camaro needs a brother.

If it's anything like the GT500 or the CTS-V (which it will be) then yeah it will be easy to bump up the horsepower

Very pleased to hear 580. I was honestly hoping for just a little more, but that'll do.
Sport cup tires... Nice.($$$$)
I'm really starting to get excited now!

2.) SO TIRE-SOME! Michelin devised for the ZL1 (and the Corvette line) a new, street legal, driveway-to-track tire — the Pilot Sport Cup Zero Pressure (ZP). They say it's as close to a racing compound you can get for street use, without hydroplaning over a puddle of spilled iced tea.
Who was wondering regarding the micheline cup tires?
How much will that option be since the goodyears are going to be the standard option?

I...think...the Goodyear's may have been a distraction....

I could be wrong...I hope I'm not. But

I don't know, the PS2s are optional on the Z06 & ZR1. It would be reasonable to assume that they'd be optional on the ZL1 as well.

580hp.......SCHWING!!!!!
The coolness of the CUP tires though are offset by the cost of early replcement due to EXTREMELY low tread life......maybe they'll be optional.

The only real concern I have is the weight......4,200lbs seems bit high to me considering that GM was trying to offset some of the necessary weight gain due to the blower & upgraded/stronger suspension components by saving weight were possible (lighter tires & wheels come to mind). I'm, hoping that 4,200lbs number was pulled out of thin air by Jloplink. I was hoping they would be able to keep it more around 4,000lbs.....I'm sure it's only a matter of time before we get the "real" weight from GM.

Overall though....

Now I just have to be impatient over cost, options & colors!

According to the article though, the manual will have launch control and the auto will not. That "should" even things out a little. Don't you think?

4200 lbs is a bit too clean for me. Not 4187 or 4216 ... just 4200 even. Plus, Motor Trend said nothing about the weight.
