Gotcha, well then I guess good for him. But I look at it like this. I've wanted a ZL1 since they were announced, I can afford it, so I'm getting one. I don't care what the cost is, sure there are cars faster for less money and sure the ZL1 is alot faster than cars that cost twice as much as it too. But I'm getting it to impress myself, not others. I've always had great luck with Chevy sports cars, I personally just don't like the looks of the GT500 compared to the ZL1. But I have much for the GT500 and I enjoy talking to folks about their rides no matter what brand they are.

Oh wait, I already bought my car.....

Well then! I have a 2012 ZL1 in my garage with only 132 miles on it. Now for sale because of this new information.

Even though I will never see a drag strip... this is important stuff!

I mean come on... I read it on the internet. It has to be true.... right?

The ZL1 is a great car guys but IMHO it should have been released back in 2010 as the SS and we should be getting a Shelby killer known as the "Z28" right now

GM is goona have to put the car on a serious diet for one,and it is so much to ask for forged internals.I hate to admit it but this is the 4th camaro I've owned and loved them all.But I will be in the market for a 13' GT 500 soon.

Race duration or end speed?
Totally possible, just strange since most mags tested both around 12.5@116
Mph tells you the most about roll racing outcomes, but if it was a raping, so be it. Tell them to take it to the strip and have some more fun next time.

We already have verified, professional video and articles showing the ZL1 has outrun the GT500 at the course (VIR) for one as well as the Boss LS with Randy Pobst on both the ZL1 and the Boss LS. Pro drivers. I guarantee you GM engineered to ZL1 to be faster then the current GT500 and Boss LS which has been proven. Some kids who don't know what their doing with a car that they have very little seat time in is no way a reliable source for performance and one on one events. As for the 2013 GT500, well the ZL1 has no chance on the strip but will be tight on the track

I highly doubt a stock Zl1 is going to be faster than a stock '13 GT500 in the 1/4. I'm not knocking the ZL1, but it seems very obvious that the new GT500 was built for the 1/4 mile:

650HP
live axle
3850lbs
