Just for kicks and giggles....

I decided to "Build-and-price" a CTS-V Coupe to as close as I could get to my ZL1's options...

Turned out to be $69890 MSRP!!

...$3400 of that came from the Recaro seats that HAD to be ordered if I was to get suede steering wheel and shifter...satin black wheels were another $800...

Wonderful car...but I'm starting to see how the two were differentiated in the marketplace.

So about $10,000 to $12,000 over a ZL1. I do wish they had included the cooled seats from the CTS-V.

It's a Cadillac, the ZL1 is a Chevy. That should answer your question right there.

However, a ZL1 with 10k of mods... evil beast.


I just wonder if there will ever be a performance package.


NOT that we need one, but if one can go to far, he might as well go WAY THE HECK too far. .

First time for everything.

OP, that coupe is amazing. Fast, handsome, and rare.

I'm really hoping GMPP offers something for the enthusiast who doesn't want to throw their warranty out the window. There would definitely be a market for it, especially with this type of car.

I gotta agree, I like the sedan much more than the coupe.

I agree 100%. The gt500 has plenty of factory optioned/warranty performance packs including upgraded blowers. I think it would be wise.to jump on that. The problem is that gm is sticking to their blower design (inverted) which would make a swap not as straight forward as it is on the gt500.

As for the V wagon: baddest muthafin' wagon ever!!!! I love that thing... especially with the factory black wheels abd yellow calipers! Wow!! All it need is a drop and about 800rwhp!

The coupe is ok, but it is growing on me... especially the new metallic red/maroone. Sexy color and yet sophisticated at the same time!

That sounds nice. One of the few cars it would look good on IMO.

I came real close to getting a leftover 2011 couple months back but am glad I didn't as I wouldn't be getting a ZL1. Good thing my local dealer to a couple weeks getting back to me so I was able to talk myself out of it.

Just want to clarify...I LOOOOOOVE the CTS-V...Sedan, Coupe, or even Wagon, I think they're all awesome!!

...just commenting on price. I remember there were concerns the ZL1 and CTS-V would be too close in price.

But you can get that $69890 car at invoice + any reabtes and/or special financing. So realistically, your OTD will probably be only $6-7k or more than the ZL1 OTD (approx. the ZL1 is about $61k)

They would be very close if they offered the Recaros, which I wouldn't mind at all. In fact, I'd like to see someone install them on a ZL1.
