Is it fast or what?

Is is a fair statement to say that the Camaro is not as fast as you would have thought or what 400+ hp would have felt like?

When people get there cars no one is saying this beast is really fast or the fasted car I was ever in. I really want to say wow to the speed, will I?

Anything that runs a true 13.0 at 110 mph is quick. The majority of people have not been in cars that quick. Obviously, this board has more enthusiasts, so that number will undoubtedly be way higher, but it IS a quick car. If you don't believe so, just compare its stats to all production cars built over the past 30 years. It stacks up extremely well. I am posting this with an IMO caveat.

The "felt like" is not really quantifiable and is really up to the individual.

So blow off the break in and cops and just punch it to 200 MPH then fly off a cliff?

This is what happens when paper tigers and the real pavement meet up.

Cars do more then just go in a straight line btw.

come on man anything with 400hp is going to be fast. You figure the average cars these days are anywhere from 200-250hp, and im not even talking the torque and HP to weight ratio

The richest guy in our town, who usually gets a new Z06 every year, got a ZR1 and he told me he wasn't impressed.

That had nothing to do with your thread, but your question made me think of it. GAH! Give me that car!

Man for the first few months the car ALONE should maybe get you a warning. (MAYBE)

It better put me further back in my seat than Bonnies IS350.

It is EXACTLY as fast as I would have thought 400 and 426 HP would be. Absolutely awesome. If you doubt that, either you haven't driven one or you are getting out of a Corvette.
