Chevy is putting a lot of effort into engineering this zl1. It will be much more than a cts-v body swap or a camaro with a Maggie bolted on.

It just gets better by the day. I wish I didn't have to wait so long for a zl1.

I hope these videos will help put an end to those threads where people casually state that the ZL1 will not be worth the cost, because the ZL1 won't perform as well as a much cheaper, modified this or that, or a 6XX hp 2013 GT500.

It's clear from the videos that the ZL1 has been developed to be a complete factory race ready high performance vehicle.

Will there be vehicles out there that will have higher performance? Sure. However, I'll be willing to bet that it will difficult to obtain one that performs as well as the ZL1 for a price that is less or equal to the ZL1's price.

I really dont think ANY other competitor on the market is going to be able to match this new ZL1 pound for pound even if it is lighter because they simply dont have what it takes to match both GM's performance & technology capabilities. All I can say is I want one and if I dont get one this year then I at least would like for Scott Settlemire or one of the new owners to give me a ride in one at Camaro Fest 3 next August because I cant wait to see this beast in action!

It won't, but I'm sure when the embargo lifts, and when these start leaving black "11"s on the drag strip and terrorizing the streets across our beautiful country. That '13 could have 620 horse' but they better do something about using those phillies. Ford spent most of that car's budget under the hood, which is fine if you don't mind going straight all the time, but I think ZL1 (and CAMARO across the line) is more of a Ponycar than the 'stang is now. I'm so excited to see GM reveil the whole package. They're certainly showing they aren't affraid to take the car to the strip and kick up some VHT and rubber!

I completely agree with your last statement, too. I think it'll be a while before that's possible. It's easy to make a racecar, but it's another thing to make it enjoyable to drive every day, in all weather, in compete comfort.

I really hope we start seeing some TV ads. The internet is great, but the more I see CAMARO and ZL1, I think it's for the better for Chevrolet and ZL1.

Everyday I wonder if I should have waited... but now I am stuck between upgrading my SS and getting S/C... or leave it with what i have done so far and hope the trade in value is high enough to get into one of these.


Also waiting on specs for the C7...

It's a tough question for sure. I was in the same boat about 3 months ago, but I started to pay more on my loan and a second payment every other pay check. I have been able to bring my loan down a lot, so I have been able to be way under the estimated value of the car. Once I'm ready to either sell my SS or trade it in, I should have a nice chunk of change to put down on the new ZL 1 with additional down payment from savings.

Good luck!!

3 things about the drag video...

1 - Notice the front wheels are different?

2 - Is this the same car from the 'track pack' photos? (IMS Sticker)

3 - Awesome!

"LIKE!"

i spy the Corvette transporter that was blurred out in the last video.

Also did you guys notice that there are only a few leaves on some of the trees in the background. Which means that this testing was probably done 10-11 months ago?

What browser are you using? If not Firefox, then try DLing the latest version and use it.

The thing is, you may need to update your flash player to the latest version if you're already using Firefox. Updating the whole thing will take care of that.

There is also an excellent free media player called VLC. Plays lots of stuff that Windows Media Player chokes on.


Hope that helps.

We don't know the price tag yet. I am quite certain it will be as you elude though. MUCH more car for the price point it will likely come in at than the outperforming rivals, but all of this extra engineering, testing, equiping etc..... isn't gonna come cheap.

I hope I'm wrong.
