I agree about the steering wheel. I think they should put the ZL1 emblem in the center. It's a nice touch that really finishes off the interior.

I'm a little surprised they didn't upgrade the seats considering this car has seen some road courses.

Off topic; I love the interior of the RS4. My friend let me drive his RS4 and it was awesome.

Well...they kinda did. The suede should keep one in the seat quite well...and we don't know if they're going to offer racing seats or not....

Im not sure if the hood will be noticeably lighter than a flat all aluminum hood since bracing has to be added. It's probably a wash or insignificant either way. The wheels should be lighter but the larger tires will weigh more

Or smaller and towards the center?

Better?

I think the "Z" and the "L" letters should have a mirror finish on the steering wheel and maybe the "1" should be reflective as well.

The wheels AND tires together weigh less than the wheels & tires on the SS.....22lbs less total.

Chevy has said "A deliberate effort was made to control mass". Will it be lighter than an SS? I think it's safe to say NO WAY. But if they're serious about the "deliberate effort", I don't see why they can't keep the total weight below 4,000lbs.

Do you mean the ZR1? If so, to answer your question, no the magnetic suspension doesn't make the Z06 cost $100,000. The price for the 3 Z06 trim packages range from $75,000 to $82,000. The "Z06 (Z07) Ultimate Performance Package" costs $10,000 and gives you the following options (copied from Chevy.com):

• Brembo® carbon-ceramic brakes with Gray metallic calipers (similar to those offered on the ZR1®)
• Magnetic Selective Ride Control
• Enhanced cooling
• Michelin® Pilot® Sport PS2™ tires
• 20-spoke Competition Gray wheels (19" x 10" front, 20" x 12" rear)

I don't care if the hood weighs 2lbs, it's still, IMO, a detraction from the car. Functional or not, it looks out of place with the rest of the vehicle.

I, respectfully, disagree. I think the hood is a good addition to the ZL1. If you've ever owned a supercharged vehicle you know that engine bay heat is your enemy.

I'm too lazy to look for a link for more info right now... but it's great for tearing up the track because it allows you to dial in exactly how invasive you want the system to be and how many nannies are barking at you... from full TC/AH (wet) to no TC but AH on, etc.
Had a chance to take one out for about 30min - abso sick..

Seriously? You'd think I'd know that.

To the point, I know that the hood is functional and has a purpose. That doesn't make it any less appealing to me. For the record, I don't especially like the heat extractor design on my GT500 either, but it looks more intergated to the rest of the car than the hood on the ZL1 does. Again, just my opinion. I'm not looking for you or anyone else to agree with me.

I apologize for not looking at your profile vehicle. No need to be a smart ass though.

For all the people that don't like "this" or "that" about the upcoming ZL1, I have the solution....Don't buy one. I have a hard time believing anyone that can actually afford to drop the cash on one, wouldn't be able to afford spending a grand or two on an aftermarket hood and steering wheel. If the Camaro was perfect, the aftermarket industry wouldn't exist. I'm just sayin'....
