Introducing "Bane" - My 2014 ZL1

Well...it was a good 5 years with THR #2. I'd loved every minute of it but the day has come. I traded in CGM#1 today at Friendly Chevrolet and picked up my new 2014 ZL1. I simply can NOT believe this car....HOLY freaking crap!!!

2014 ZL1
Red Rock Metallic (LOVE this color!!!)
Recaros
Nav
Suede package
Gray Stripe (which will most likely come off).

And here he is...

BANE

I got it up in Dallas, TX. From San Antonio.

Happened to be goofing off building ZL1's...and then looked on Cargurus and saw it for sale. With the steep discounts, my wheels got turning. Before I knew it, I was "almost" there in what I could afford for payments. I just worked at it a bit and BAM...2014 ZL1!

Still a sweet car but less the plate holder = 50 rwhp

I am sure you are stoked, I would be regardless of the plate holder.

I'm in the same boat with the damn front plate, so worried that a repair will look worse than the plate, I'm too damn picky!

Hadn't done any crazy stuff....YET. I'd have to say the supers, on their smoothest setting of a *1 (from 31) would compare to the ZL's sport mode. But with the supers, you can adjust up to the 31 which would make the give on the suspension basically disappear. I was quite surprised with the ZL1's suspension. Freaking great right from the factory.

On a side note, was that white C6 in the background a ZR1?

Thanks guys! And that white vette in the background was, I believe, a new stingray. Don't recall seeing any ZR1's around. But there was one vette.....oh, if I can find a picture....DROOL!
