agreed, this thing has way to many high dollar go fast goodies on it. I mean its going to destroy pretty much anything on the race track which is the point but all that stuff is $$$$

Those gauges have always been redundant. The DIC will alert the driver when there are oil, temp and volt issues (as it does now for all SS and V6 owners with and without the gauges).

The last thing you want to do when racing is look down......

Maybe it has already been covered, but is the color HUD and DIC going to be retrofittable to a 2013 ZL1 with MyLink and Nav?

Or is it going to be possible but prohibited by expense? Or simply not possible at all?

On another note the Z/28 doesn't have the HUD....

I'll take creature comforts anyday over slightly more speed. The ZL-1 is almost as fast and has all the bells and whistles. Personally I don't even like the front or rear styling and what's in between, most of us already have and then some. Just my two cents.
Totally understand where you are coming from. But my feeling is the opposite. When I finally got to drive the ZL1, I could respect it but it didn't make me passionate like my Boss did. This is the Camaro I'd want. It pains me to say this but it's even more raw and a better execution of my ideal than the Boss. But then again, without the Boss would it have happened? In either case this car is one I can't wait to become intimately acquainted with. I'll say it again, way to go GM.

I hope so.

Been catching up on this thread. Lots of complaints about a lot of little things. Let's be perfectly clear, if you only have one car, this is not the car to have. This car is a weekend warrior, a summer night cruiser and a track car. This car is for the person who already has a daily driver and doesn't give a rats arse about the taillights or lack of a sound system. When they've done the rush hour commute and want to return to the pure pleasure of driving they pull this baby out of the garage and smile a self satisfied smile as they fire it up. If you want to think you have the baddest Camaro out there but can only afford one, get the ZL1, want a daily driver you can track, there's the 1LE. Concerned about looks, buy a big standard V8 model and customize to your hearts content. Just want to own a great looking car, consider the V6. Really GM has everyone finally covered and there's still bitching?!?!

I'll say what I said before - I'm not a fan of the hood vent. I know why it's there now - but I still wish they executed it better. I've liked the front fascia treatment all along, the taillights look better with a professional pic and not what we saw on a SD broadcast (proper lighting and all that).

Throwback to 1969 - that's what they are aiming for and I will agree, they hit that mark. The car is honestly a race car you can drive on the street. Buy on saturday, race on sunday.

They've done good in the mechanics department. The car just needs a different hood and it would be perfect. I'm glad they brought back the Z/28 - I'm on the fence about the fact that the car still weighs in @ 3900lbs (the ZL1 is 4100 - 300 = 3900lbs).

Still a pig - but the LS7 will help with that a bit. Still. If GM plans to keep the Camaro Z/28 moniker alive through to the alpha platform, I think that I will be choosing that route. We'll have to see...

I believe 4100-300=3800 haha

I have a Challenger, but I wanted to come over and congratulate you guys on getting some awesome cars from GM. First the ZL1 and now the Z/28. Seems like at least GM listens to you guys and brings to market products you've asked for.

Wish I could say the same for Dodge

Meanwhile at Dodge design HQ

You really don't understand the purpose of this car, it is a pure performance car, not just another gadget-filled driving appliance.

Agree. If I didn't already have my Boss I would seriously consider this... the new Z/28 is a track winner and we haven't even seen the real world #'s yet!
