On a hard acceleration, I can make a Prius sound like that if I press on the gas hard enough. Maybe I need to hear it in person because that sound quality was awful.

And the turbo V6 people want us to give up that? No thanks.

Very similar to the 1978 Z/28 TV commercial.

Did you notice the 427 markings on the engine? That takes me back to the 60s. Had a 427 out of Vette in a 55 Chevy. Good times!

I'm sure you're just trying to make a point..... but yeah... a prius will never sound like that

It was a tease, albeit a small one...just sayin....I wanna hear the LS7 as given with the tri Y headers and dual mode exhaust sound off under WOT....
Guess they have not gotten past the break-in period.

I would really like to actually be able to see the car sitting there at a distance far enough to gauge how it sounds and looks compared to the LS3/L99 Camaros. Didn't get much out that video.

To hear how fabulous the LS7 REALLY sounds, listen to THIS clip. I've even cued it up for you:

I wonder if they've fixed the valve problem on 427 engines? I've read a lot of expensive engine failures on Z06s from the Corvetteforum guys. I sure hope so.

I am sitting here thinking about how in the world I'm going to afford one of these!!!

This is probably the most ignorant thing I've read in the Z/28 threads. Ever.
