I think the ZL1 sounds better than any 5.slow or shelby I have heard. I do like the sound of the Ford's. I agree, at lower rpm's the ford sounds real good, but when I have my foot into it, sorry blue oval boys, chevy killz it

I beg to differ on that comment...

Heres my video, post your stang video up to compare




And back on topic, hearing the exhaust on the ZL1 , I had to go ..............ummmm.............get some napkins

Guess you'd have to hear it in person.. It just sounds like almost every other SS I've heard with aftermarket exhaust.

Trust me, I'm sure Scott, John, or AL would have loved gone WOT done the strip that day, but GM policy prevents it...........

But come January 2012, or shortly after you can experience WOT for yourself

I'm guessing based on other things posed, that it's not desired they pound on it like that yet..

As much as I'd love to have watching them actually race it -- I can understand why they're not.

The car is pre-production. It would probably be fine....but what if it wasn't? What if (since it's pre-production and not tested) there was a weak spot in the rim somewhere? Imagine if something DID fail...how awful that would look.

Also consider it's one of two show-car ZL1s in existance...some bits hand-assembled...imagine the cost for blowing one of those up...

90 year olds, indeed....

Yep and sadly there is a huge amout of liability. If somebody did get on it hard and something broke on this 2nd of 2 ZL1 show cars, there would be some serious lawyering up if anyone was injured.

But I agree, it would have made for great moment. But there are very serious safety protocols for vehicles like this that GM must follow when out in the public domain.

The car is electronically limited to 20mph.

Have we seen the 1st one? Or - was this car at Chicago?

I believe that car is limited to 20mph since it is an untested pre-production car from what I was told by the GM designers at the fest.

The first one was the one with the tape stripe and the standard ZL1 wheels.
