Too bad the ZL1 will come with this white black all-square paint job, i liked more the normal type! HAHAHAHAAH Seriously, why on earth is this car still with that wrap? Does GM think its pretty? hahaha

The president said its to cover battle-scars.
I'm sure you would get a lot of paint chips while running on the track! This is just to hide those dings, dents and chips...

Will the drive train really handle this power under abuse? Is the this the same tranny and rear in the SS?

However- 1/3 of SS was upgraded/improved for ZL1. The tranny is probably the same (or very closely related) as CTS-V's (the same goes either A6 or M6). The rear is a new cast-iron case with probably a 14-bolt differential. The rear cradle bushings have also been improved.

That's a scratch on the surface of what's been improved for ZL1
