Great Find!!

GM must have had a track day for journalists at this track. It is the same track Motor Trend said they tested it at.

I am liking those optional wheels on the white, hmmm.

Great vids and thanks again!

Interesting how they have the inter-cooler hoses coming over the blower pulley with no protector shroud. A belt break would take those babies out pretty quick (although the 8 rib belt may not break that easily with the low boost).
It just seems like an odd routing but am sure it was thought of for other routes and that was the best.

Apologies if this has been discussed in other threads. The close ups on the engine vid here made me question this as I recently had my belt go on my 2300 Magnacharger blower and there was some collateral damage to the underside hood insulation and if there were hoses above the blower pulley, they would have been cut easily at that RPM (12 lbs boost btw).

Im a huge camaro fan, but chevy has let me down on the interior of the zl1. Exterior and Performance they nailed it, but interior.no. I mean c'mon? the same steering found in the cheapest Chevy model? Seriously, it needs it own steerring wheel. When you get in a shelby mustang, you KNOW youre in a Shelby mustang.

the new grey is alot darker then I thought it would be
The videos are awesome, the silver and white ZL1s are GORGOUS!
Didnt realize the Vert ZL1 doesnt get the ZL1 spoiler

And personal opinion, ZL1 needs the black SSX wheels to make it look even more aggressive

How does the Shelby Mustang differentiate itself from the Mustang GT?

I have never sat in or even seen pictures of the Shelby Mustang's interior. Thanks in advance.

Chevy needs to go back and re-think about incorparating the "ZL1" badge on the shift knob,it's minor detail but detail that matters,
