Kelly Blue Book Camaro review written by dude smoking crack!

full review: http://www.kbb.com/kbb/NewCars/Revie...et_Camaro.aspx

This is a quote from their review...

"Driving Impressions
While we had a chance to sample every level of the Camaro from the V6-powered LS to the 426-horsepower LS3 V8-equipped SS with its six-speed manual transmission, we have to admit that we spent most of our time in the SS. Power and torque are effortless and ever-present, making it an easy car to drive fast, and its 0-60-mph acceleration, aided by electronic launch control, is a more-than-respectable 4.4 seconds."


0-60 in 4.4 sec with launch control on? Did GM give them a Z/28 or what?

Also, since when is a 4.4 sec 0-60 time merely "respectable." I guess if you drive a Lambo or Z06 as your daily driver...LOL.

Guys it may get 4.4 Most the cars reviewed had low milage and where tested in 40 degree weather, not the best for the P-Zero tire to grip. I could see a 5000 mile plus car in 60-70 degree weather doing 4.4

I believe it, with the right weather, the P-Zero's will grip dang well
