I think once the GT500 comes out and a test is done between the ZL1 and new Mustang we will see some better 1/4 mile and 0-60 times as the weather will be much warmer across the board and hopefully a track is chosen that has little to no wind. Still, for the $56k it's tough to find a car that will put up these type of performance #'s and that includes, vettes, M3's, and anything else relatively close to the MSRP of the ZL1.

And I think that's the main selling point.

Outstanding all-around performance for a Chevy price. It's the same idea they've got with the ZR1 Vette.

Picture 9 on this review shows the Performance Badge on the radiator cover. Are they bringing this back?

Finally picked up this issue and it was great to see a ZL1 in white. Some great shots!

I was possible flipping back to the AG but this review has pretty much made up my mind to get the white on the vert with the black wheels now and do some 20% tint and it will be awesome.

What is amazing to me is the strength of the reports "in total".... very few complaints of anything but subjective nature. Very good! What it does, is confirm this car is iconic and GM hit the target bullseye. You can bet that the 650 hp competitor will get some big press later this year, but it will be regarded as "catching up" and more than likely, still behind in technology. IMHO.

Most of the complaints, even from the tribe, relate to cosmetics: thread color, stripe color, seat design, radio controls, etc. Not a peep about performance/value.

I'm glad they are keeping them in QC to insure we remain happy owners!
