Good point, If GM only produces 10% to 20% of actual demand, clones will be a good business if costs can be kept in check by using some cheaper knock offs.

As we all know buying the parts alone (from GM) costs more than the complete package, then the clone builder needs to mark up and cover labor.

However, there are many offshore manufacturers that can digitize and copy any part made in the US (except for ceramic rotors, only a few capable suppliers out there)
I was thinking more of the modding Camaro owners.... buying fender flairs, spoilers, and other cosmetic Z/28 parts (think ZL1 front fascia craze). Then some will want the wheels and maybe some suspension parts... (think 1LE)

I doubt GM anticipated the amount of extra ZL1 fascias they'd sell. Stands to reason many of the Z/28 parts will trickle down into the rest of the line up.

LS7 (w/ dry sump) + 4k
Carbon Ceramic Brakes + 6-8k ( yes Carbon Ceramic Brakes are that expensive )
Recaro Seats + 1k
19" Forged Wheels + 2k ( the optional 21's are 700 ea i find this conservative )
High Performance Track tires + $500
Bits of shiny Carbon fibre + 2k
Limited production + God knows how much

and this is not including all the other changes just the big ones

I say $61,995+ EASILY and I think that is a conservative guess

Oh and that is before your friendly neighborhood Chevrolet dealership mark up!

While it may be true...in terms of technological advances, performance lessons learned, and maybe even a chest-thumping factor....

Not gonna happen. No way...

EDIT: Btw...the dry sump system is extra $$ on top of the LS7 itself...

Because, literally.... Racecar

What amazes me about this site, and the whole internet in general, is the total lack of reading comprehension.

There is (what I'm assuming is a PRETTY reliable source) telling this, and every other thread that there is essentially now way this GD'd racecar comes in under the ZL1 (and likely not right above it either).

Yet, every four posts you get an illiterate SOB saying the same thing over and over.

True... It will be more like COPO pricing and COPO availability. Most here will never even see one in person, unless they go to a big auction, big car show or a race track.
