A loaded SS will put you at $40k. The brakes and 427 option along will be more that $10k over that. I will be you see this have a higher MSRP than the ZL1. I could be wrong... let's just wait a see.

It will be more expensive and rarer than the ZL1. It has a hand built LS7, carbon-ceramic brakes, model-specific wheels, additional body kit (probably some carbon fiber), and standard recaros.

Z/28 will be more expensive than ZL1 but less than current Z06.

It's the same Vette vs Camaro argument that's been had since '67.

The real test will be how close the Z/28 gets or if it can match the Z06 in some performance tests.

All you have to do is look at the corvette pricing structure and you can see that the Z/28 is gonna reach $80k. The Z06 hit's 80k easily and then you make the jump to $110k for the ZR1.

The LS7 and the brakes alone are a $30k premium over a 1LE and we haven't started talking about the new wheels/tires and seats etc.. it's going to be a pricey Camaro so get over it.

Now in response to the OP, the Z/28 will give you sensations that the refined Z06 won't be able to approach..

This is a great question, but also one no more complicated than why would you buy an apple when you could get an orange?

They are two different means to different ends. The Z/28 is not the fastest track car GM makes. Plane and simple.

Why would you buy a ZL1 when for the same dough you could have bough a Gran Sport Corvette?

Because some people love Camaros and some like Corvettes. A few people will go back and forth for what suits them at any given time. But some would prefer the fastest Camaro more than the 2nd fastest Corvette.

I wouldn't throw either out of be for eating crackers and if I were economically of the appropriate means, I would buy every single car that has an LS7 in it. Of course if I had that kind of cash an SS sedan with an LS7 would fill out the fleet.

When we see the numers, I am pretty sure that the Stingray with 450 PLUS HP and the appropriate cooling package will run all day and then some with a Z28. That's simply because it will weigh a good 500 less with an engine that will be only a bit short of the LS7.

So the question is not just the Z06, which costs more, but for the mone a Z/28 is likely to cost, what else would float your boat?

I think the z/28 is awesome but what I cant figure out is what its direct competition is? Almost seems like its the Corvette. If the rumors are even close then its probably way too expensive to be compared to the Boss LS. Maybe a 302R or 302S but those arent street legal.

I've never cared for what the corvettes look like. Just too "Sporty" for me. I like the Camaro's because they have more "Muscle" Appeal

After the release of the C7 GM mentioned they were going to be setting their sights higher than the usual competition...

most track day cars that are basically just striped out and lightened like a GT3 RS cost more than the non striped out performance model like the GT3. the brakes alone on the z/28 cost at the least 5,000, plus tires that cost over 2,000,plus a nucler power plant under the hood, plus a bage that says Z/28 from the factory, so i wouldnt be suprised if it was around 70,000.
