Dealership just got in an SLP ZL1 (photos) and GM question

I have to say this is a MEAN looking car in person. I LOVE the front lip and rear exhaust. (wish it was available for purchase)

Does anyone know if GM will make them change the ZL1 name now that GM has there own ZL1?

This car was out back at the Stingray Chevrolet Car show two weeks ago down in Plant City I have a few pics of it.

I am sure they have a 1 year run with the name for 2011.

I would actually be surprised by that, considering the ZL1 name is property of GM. More likely, they worked in conjunction on the project.

GM owns the rights to the ZL1 name just like GMMG the name and logo is used with permission.

As far as I have read and understand, SLP is only making 69 of their ZL1's and only for the 2011 model year. My speculation is that is why GM is waiting till '12 to produce theirs. SLP and GM came to an agreement on the use of the ZL1 name but the particulars are not disclosed.

No, they don't have to change the name, these are 2011 cars. The GM ones will be 2012

MikeSS beat me to it...lol

SLP and GM worked out an agreement where SLP can use the ZL1 name on the 69 (750HP) cars that they are going to build in 2011. Come Jan. 2012, SLP will no longer be able to use ZL1 on their cars. However, SLP maintained ownership of the "ZL" logo for their ZL550 and ZL585 model Camaros. GM will start building their own ZL1 Camaros (550+HP) in Jan. 2012 and will have exclusive rights to the "ZL1" logo. I hope that is not too confusing.

woooooooooooooow...now that is what GM's ZL1 should loook like!!!!!!! that is perfectly set up! That is just beautiful and mean at the same time. much more appealing and very attractive, not cheap looking car! (unlike the 2012 zl1)

come one GM....put this front end on your ZL1!!! its much better looking. Hood, rims, grills, fogs and ground effects. much sharper and a true styling competitor with the Shelby.

Exhaust looks hideous to me. Just my opinion though. To each his own.

For that kind of money, youd think theyd put real carbon fiber on there. Still looks damn good though.
