So nearly 64k base in Canada then.... north of 70k by the time you add options and taxes....

Why must GM continue doing sex to us?

So you fellas glad they threw in the A6 now?

Good deal, sounds competitively priced (although still way beyond my financial capacity :( )

I was actually expecting a higher top speed...

As you can see, I have already run a 12.11 @ 117MPH on stock tires with my current set-up and with the addition of the SC and a set of "sticky" rear tires I will be in the low 11's for the same price (before taxes) of the ZL1.
So when are you having your Magnetic Ride Suspension installed?

I WANT THE OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT PAGE....where?

I still think they should have gone with a 48k base price because of all the dealer installs, options, taxes, etc. that will be tacked on to the vehicle anyhow. This probably means the 2013 will be a few grand more expensive than the first release...its looking good for waiting on the new platform now and a Z28.

Hopefully this will help keep 2013 GT500 pricing low. With that said the ZL1 is a great car for the price.

I'm just a touch surprised that we didn't get <12 in the quarter. That was important to me. That is the only place where I am non-astounded.

It's a done deal. My price barrier was always 55k base.

One more tenth of a second in the quarter would have meant a lot to me, but I guess that will just give me a short term goal with mods.
Worry not friend...mods won't be necessary. I have yet to see a factory stated time not bested shortly after the first example was delivered.

There's a couple guys that have gotten C6 Z06's into the 10's bone stock. And GM's official time was 11.7....

Even I was able to manage an 11.31 @125.6xx and I don't consider myself a track rat.

I wish I would have waited . I have around $60.000 something in mine. I just couldn't wait to have a new Camaro. Sure I have a supercharger and a bunch of other goodies but it won't compare to the ZL1. ANYONE INTERESTED IN A 2011 SS WITH A BUNCH OF MODS ???? LOL If I could get around $40,000 for mine I think I would sell it and get the ZL1. I could also get a 2009 ZR1 with 1700 miles on it right now. Let me know if you are interested.

with the drag created from the aerodynamics and the downforce, it makes sense to me.

Officially my SS was capable of running 13.0 in stock form,
I've managed a 12.61 bone stock, so take the "official" time as more of an average or easily capable time. With some seat time, it'll be well into the 11's.

Just read an article about the price announcement and in the article its also mentioned that the 2013 Snake will put out 650HP and 600Torque...did we just get bitchslapped twice? I think in about a year we will see the the chips land once both vehicles are out and being driven by Joe Public.


I have cut and pasted the article in this edit:

2013 Ford Shelby GT500 Bows: 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show

Just the Facts:
  • Ford claims the 2013 Shelby GT500's 650-horsepower supercharged 5.8-liter is "the most powerful production V8 engine in the world."
  • Top speed is more than 200 mph.
  • The 2013 Shelby GT500 goes on sale next year.

LOS ANGELES — The 2013 Ford Shelby GT500, which goes on sale next year, sports a supercharged 5.8-liter V8 and a new optional Performance package. Ford says the aluminum engine, which is rated at 650 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque, is "the most powerful production V8 engine in the world." The 2013 Shelby GT500 debuts this week at the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show.
Remarkably, the latest edition of the Shelby GT500 has a top speed in excess of 200 mph — thanks in part to its 3,850-pound weight — yet somehow manages to avoid the dreaded federal gas-guzzler tax.
Ford said it has reworked virtually every key component of the driveline, fitting a larger, more-efficient TVS supercharger, new cross-drilled engine block and cylinder heads, updated cam profiles, a new carbon-fiber driveshaft and upgraded clutch, transmission and axle.
To handle the additional torque while still delivering reasonable fuel economy, the six-speed manual transmission was regeared and beefed up.
The optional Performance package bundles SVT-designed Bilstein electronic adjustable dampers and a Torsen limited-slip differential. An optional Track package adds an external engine oil cooler, rear differential cooler and transmission cooler.
Among the additional features on the 2013 Shelby GT500 are a new launch control system, Brembo brakes, revised aerodynamics and new forged-aluminum wheels measuring 19 inches in front and 20 inches in the rear, all with Goodyear Eagle F1 SuperCar G: 2 tires.
Inside Line says: Most ponies ever.


What is the price though is the question...cuz I already see the weight difference...

Nice

So I cant find any where the actual HP of the automatic? I too think the price is fair, but for someone who does not take the car to the track and just wants that pure acceleration. maybe a better choice and a lot cheaper to modify My SS with a supercharger and some headers?

Yeah but isn't the Super Snake close to 6 figures once you buy the car and send it in for upgrades?
