HAHAH same. i was like there is nothing wrong with the gauges, gas pedal, vents, or center consle, this dudes crazy.

I still love the look of the updated interior. And the steering wheel is sooo much better than the current one.

The steering wheel looks funky, but it will feel great. Flat bottom, smaller steering wheels are the way to go for racing imo and with alcantera it will feel awesome in your hands. Looks like it's shaping up to be a real great car. Can't wait to see what people do with them.

If gm really wanted to make the camaro have some serious performance it would have made the car ligther, at 4,000 plus the car is just going to suck up gas,

Obviously they aren't done with the ZL1 design yet, but they are definitely thinking about the weight or they wouldn't have given it a carbon fiber hood vent on an aluminum hood. And the wheels are bigger than the SS wheels but lighter! Come on! Give credit where credit is due, even if it ends up being a little chunky in the end.

Sure I'll give it a penny, but seriously any body can add horsepower to their cars, but if you really want to stand out and have some serious performance then weight is a crucial factor, especially in RWD cars

i wish there was a way to order one without the stripes. All they do is attract attention in traffic.

I'm sure that nobody buying this car wants to draw attention to themselves!

im sure it will be both heavy and fast. Probably 4100lbs thats my guess. a lighter car would be off the hook but not sure how possible that is without taking away from the cars overall quality feel.
