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

The gold bowties really seem out of place on these cars. Look at them in the picture on this silver ZL1...looks out of place. Color keyed would be better, or just chrome or brushed silver or something neutral.

That is the SSX Track Car concept by GM and Pratt & Miller Racing for the 2010 SEMA show. Either that, or and excellent clone.

I just don't see why they didnt push the HP higher cause mine has quite a bit more and prolly have less into it than what the ZL1 is gonna sell for. they really needed to make the hp more IMO.

The car looks great and all but for $50k+ they could have really made it with more hp and tq

Can you run your engine for a week and a half (straight) at wide open throttle without failure? Because the LSA can. Does your engine have a 5 yr, 100k mile power train warranty? The LSA has one. Does your engine meet factory emissions standards in every state? The LSA does.

GM has far more to think about than just adding more power.
