Because some people started modding their SS well before a ZL1 was even announced. Also, with the difference in price, you could easily put enough money into your SS to rape a ZL1. For the sake of argument, let's just say that an SS costs 30k (a 1SS is close to this) and a ZL1 costs 60k. If power was all I cared about I would really only need 20k to put out well more than a ZL1's 580hp, and still have 10k left over to destroy it in the handling department. See what I mean?

And as a side note, DangeruSS's car is projected to put out 1000rwhp, so the chances of many cars even staying with him is slim, much less a ZL1.

In my case I care more about straight line performance over road course. So the SS is a better choice cost wise.
