Thanks TRAN...awsome update, now if you will excuse me I have to go sell everything I own and buy a ZL-1.
That is what it sounded like to me too. The porshe was trying to keep up and lost it at that turn, alot of brake lockup. If that doesn't tell you how well this car handles. Awesome.

Is it normal to constantly replay this video with the volume jacked way up all the while laughing uncontrollably like Dr Evil?

Yeah it's so embarrassing driving a 550HP car right now compared to something that hasn't even been released. I can't believe I have to be seen in this thing.

As for the ZL1 is looks and sounds awesome on the track! I love seeing these companies push each other. We all win!
LOL, good for you! You get it!

Sounds very nice!

Also sounds like it needs a better shift strategy for the auto. I think heard a couple of shifts that shouldn't have happened.

Oh wow ... I think I am just gonna ditch the 2nd row and call it a real sports car instead of the sporty car. ZL1 sounded angry as it cornered with poise. It didn't slide at all, awesome handling. Even with the 2nd row, I think it might be able to hit 7:40, no?

Great video, but it feels like the ZL1 is pretty heavy based on the video footage.

Did you notice very little tire squeal, as well (compared to the Porche behind it...hehe).
It was incredibly planted in all those clips.


What an awesome vid...all uncovered, and whatnot.

I can't take all of these ZL1 threads. This is just like waiting for my current camaro except this is what I was hoping for along with these cars. That thing looks and sounds awesome running around that track.
