I think the seats are a little high for the Recaros. The mustangs are a $1500 upgrade, so ours should be similar.

First - looking at chevy.com and building a Z06 with the Z07 package (carbon ceramic brakes) the price comes in at $7500.

I cannot imagine the Z/28 being more than this.


expanding on this spread sheet here is some data VIR lap times compared to price.

$112,000 ZR1 - 2.45.63
$88,585 Z06/Z07 - 2.53.50
$64,515 - CTS-V - 3.04.20
$57,885 Grand Sport - 2.58.80
$56,500 - ZL1 - 2.52.38
$36,035 - 1LE - 2.58.34

*VIR times are either lightning lap times or GM videos
**prices are from Chevy.com or Cadillac.com

Tried doing all these cars for Nurburgring but only came up with 4 times
ZR1 - 7.19.63
Z07 - 7.22.68
ZL1 - 7.41.21
CTSV - 7.59.32

SS was 8.19.xx but no 1LE time could be found

I still think Chevy can do this for high 40s low 50s but the price will probably be closer to 60.

Unless given direct goals from the top - it might be hard to place a price on this car.

I have also heard other car manufacturers say one thing and the release with something else - i won't believe the "more than zl1' until i see a release from GM then again the big Corvettes are going away probably until 2015/16 so the ZL1 and Z/28 might get a chance to flex their muscles. That is unless the Stingray is every bit the track car the Z/28 is and retails for 55k

Tough decisions by GM imo

Somethings to add to the spreadsheet...

How much extra for the secondary liquid-to-liquid cooling system for the transmission and differential ? I'll throw $1,500 out there over and above the ZL1's air-to-liquid setup.

How much extra for the stainless hydroformed tri-y exhaust headers ? I'd venture $1,500 more than the ZL1's cast iron (maybe they are stainless?) exhaust manifolds.

There's another $3,000... LOL !!!

I think you've just made the Z/28 a $200,000. car. You must work in government purchasing.

...but me, nah... I don't work for government purchasing.

I sell to government purchasing and make a shit ton of money doing it.

I promise you I'm not a small guy. Therefore it's hard to hide.

Who said anything about hiding? Now you're just being silly

BTW, I'm much larger than a larger guy, like a cross between an NFL linebacker and a NBA power forward, but WTF does that have to do with you poking a jab at my post and me poking back?

Don't dish it out it you can't take it back.

Threatening me saying that you are a big guy and that I can't hide from you ? Shame, shame...

Dude, just poke back with wit and words.

One of the things that has made the Z/28 Section so "interesting" these last three weeks are the suddenly-knowledgeable souls who have migrated here...without the proverbial GREEN Cards...to mess with the Pilgrims...

Welcome.

Next week? The Salem Witch Hunts...

^ as cool as it may be to be an OP "original pilgrim"...

some of us... at least me... dont spend too much time on something that may never be... so when the z/28 was just rumors, yeah i was interested, but not so involved in the discussions because we had no info, facts, data, etc...
