I'm sorry to those individuals and their posts that got caught up in quotes and such. I had to take a little rubbish out...

Carry on

It is updated...if u look up top there is the z06 and zr1 up there with those times...it also shows the vette with a different driver with a much longer time.

"Exceeding Expectations"



Well, that's what they said they would do. I am sure the remaining numbers will follow suit...

They have created an "affordable" monster........and had fun doing it!

Monster Garage
Coming soon to a Neighbor Near You!

ps: It might just be a pinch more than rated HP ya think?

oh, and the little bit of difference on the Ring might not be found here on the Street!

Well if anyone was doubting that the added technology would make much of a difference, their questions have been answered. This is great news and really shows how the hard work they've put into this car has paid off. I wouldn't be able to afford one at 50k anyways, but I now think we're looking at a 60k Camaro.

So the ZL1 beat an AWD, 670hp Lambo? Either that MR is absolutely the best suspension available, or the ZL1 has more hp than they're saying. Wouldn't it be cool if the ZL1 had a "hot key" like the Boss, and this run was done using that "hot key" that produces 600+ hp?

One can dream.

I think there are those at GM that know this, but whether those are the same people that will actually establish the price is another matter altogether. Even at $60K, I think it's a fairly good value. At close to $50K would be an OUTSTANDING value

That's the number I've had in my head for a very long time. MSRP of about $55k, out the door at $60k. It might be a few thousand difference in either direction, but those calling a $60k plus MSRP are not thinking clearly IMO. It reminds me of those that were predicting the SS coupe price point in the $40-45k range prior to release.

As amazing as this car is, it will not be priced out of it's direct competition and demographic.

I think Lambos' are more for the eyes than they are for the speed-freaks. I know there are some great cars out there (R8), but nearly every Ferrari that I see looks and seems to perform like performance was the goal, not just to defeat radar, lol. I LOVE Lambos', but I just don't take them as serious as a speed machine. I'll never own one, but I definately like how they've looked the last several years.

I want to learn more about the new MR, too. I haven't got a chance to really dive into the Gen II MR, but I'm sure we're going to be educated by GM very soon on Gen III.

As far as the power - you remember the '10 LLT and '11 LLT power numbers, yes?... LOL. Though I know I've seen power numbers published by GM, and even recall a certification statement, I haven't seen an SAE statement by them yet. Maybe that's still going to be officially annouced, too. I guess we'll see

That may be the trick. They said official, not SAE.

I hope so. Just make the msrp realistic. I can weed out the mark-up bs with my persistence. Even some gt500 dealers were asking mark-ups (I was laughing hysterically to myself when a friend told me what he paid over msrp).
