Wow, it's like 2008 all over again. She looks awesome in silver. I'll never understand the people that want to mod this car. It's perfect.

4200lbs?

The car gained 340 lbs over a standard SS? And they even took weight reduction steps? I understand the supercharger etc will add another 150lbs or so...and other heavier duty components...but they also lightened the car in ways also. I dont see the car gaining more than 150-200 lbs.

4200 lbs is ridiculous...as if the regular camaro wasnt heavy enough.

This!! No thanks GM. No ZL1 for me. Hopefully they don't disappoint me with the Z28.

How does anyone figure this will beat (let alone spank) a New gt500 at 3750-3800 lbs and 550 hp?....and with the ZL1 at 580 hp and 4200lbs.

If these figures are correct the camaro will actually be a bit slower.

I think the source is probably wrong and the car is about 4k and just a bit quicker than the GT500

I hope so, I always thought the ZL1 would come in just under 4K. Sounds like the hp/lb. figure was posted on a screen by GM during the presentation. The only way that would make sense if it's a deliberate false figure by GM and they used the old HP number of 550 so they aren't laying it all out there for their competitors. 550 x 7.24= 3982. If it actually weighs 4200 lbs. then game over again.

Don't get it confused I love the car I just think they could have done more with similar mods and gotten more power out of it
Every OEM runs their engines at WOT at length to ensure durability. They also have to pass emissions in every state. You don't, but they do. Why? They're an automaker, you're a guy modding his car. You get to play be a different rule book.

If you want more, just pass on the warranty & go as big as you can afford with mods. You won't need too many.

Because the CTS-V coupe spanked the gt500? And maybe cause the Cts-v coupe is as HEAVY or HEAVIER than the zl1... Oh and cause it has 556 horse and 556 torque, OH and MAYBE... the ZL1 has 580 HORSEPOWER? it's gonna spank the gt500 again. No doubt.

Check the GM press release (http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=170305). Did they announce the weight? No? Well then ... its just speculation from a website.

The CTS-V is almost as quick as the GT500. It has less power & less grip than the ZL1. So the ZL1 will clearly be faster than the CTS-V, which also gives it the edge over the GT500. Make sense?

And, because I can't stress this enough, 4200 lbs isn't official - its speculation, just like price, performance, and fuel economy.
