Benchmarking BMW or Audi shouldn"t mean copying 'em ...
I....don't see any copying. The flat-bottom steering wheel is a good design, and I'm glad they used it!

As far as the center and controls resembling the corporate wheel...I've used that wheel in the Equinox - and let me tell ya': those controls are VERY comfortable to use...combined with the smaller, thicker flat-bottom wheel, I'm REALLY looking forward to this steering wheel.

Check out these performance specs on this camaro. The power is very close to the ZL1, probably a bit more, weight is around what you guys are estimating, performance numbers are basically identical to the 2011 GT500. I sure hope the ZL1 performs better then this.

And there is no shift light...that I've heard of.

The Hurst Camaro is a nice package -- but it's no ZL1.

I also wouldn't mind losing a ZL1 badge or two.....

As far as straight line acceleration, all the other numbers seem to be close with the ZL1. The weight, (estimated) the 11 inch rear wheels, forged aluminum wheels, power, etc. I was hoping for high 11's closer to 120mph

Like I said...it's just not a ZL1. There's a lot of engineering work that's going into it that aftermarket companies (while very impressive) just can't do. Chevy has access to data and resources only the 'creator' has available to them...

The Hurst is very impressive....I guess what I'm saying is the ZL1 is going to be more impressive...much more.

Although I'm not as against the bowtie as most, I have to admit that the chop Dragoneye did with the word Camaro on the steering wheel looks best.

And I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks this vehicle is over badged. I know some people love having badges everywhere, but there will be some debadging going on with my ZL1. I prefer the cleaner look of minimal exterior badges. But, it's nothing to complain about though since it'll be such an easy fix.

Dragoneye, that looks so much better with the Camaro lettering in the center than the bowtie.

yea at this point im happy with the bowtie.
SSmoked, thanks for a far more accurate recount of ZL1 badging. I missed a bunch of them that you listed. It now works out to about $3,000.00 per badge down from $7,500.00 p/badge. Look a discount already and a 550HP car too. Life just does not get any better !!!

I think it's reasonable to suggest the zL1 will put down similar straight line numbers to the hurst even though I have a feeling the z might be a tad heavier I'm sure we'll know soon enough

Those Hurst numbers are a tick slower than some CTS-V results. I've read as low as 12.2 for the Caddy....now figure the ZL1 will have a slightly more free-breathing engine, wider tires, lighter weight, and now apparently it's getting GM's premier performance traction control system...
