I'd rather have a ZL1 for that kind of cash. They stripped the thing down, no AC, 1-speaker radio and it still weighs 3800 lbs. My car weighs 3880 and it's got all the bells and whistles.

IMO it's not worth $75k+. I don't care if those parts add up to $40,000. I'd wait until a 6th gen Z/28 comes out if it indeed does. If not? Why spend that amount of money when a true track fan can build something cheaper that will match if not beat a new Z/28? Because its got a factory warranty? If you're racing, warranties don't mean squat, though they're nice, not needed. I'll repeat myself. It's a great car and I'd love to have one but I refuse to spend that amount on one just to say I have one. I wouldn't race it much but I'd play with her.

Reality Check!!!...This is the first new model I've ever heard the manufacturer try to "discourage" buyers....(and justifiably so) "If you're not a hard-core racer, or don't intend to track it 'a lot' this is NOT your car"...."It's street legal, but not meant for the street..."

...If you can afford 2K for tires every 3-4K miles, then you shouldn't even care what the price will be...

I'm sticking with my 100K prediction...If you have to ask what this one costs, you can't afford it...

Ya that's too bad. We've got some scores to settle, but we need a little more power and a little less weight in order to do that.

I'd make it my daily driver, though I'd sell the tires and rims and throw some different rims on with tires that will last a while.

A little less weight and a little more power...that's a Z/28.

I hear ya....but one thing I haven't heard discussed, or how it's factored in, is the "warranty" and what the parameters for that would be...Wouldn't surprise me if different tires and wheels, were a warranty killer with the rest of the suspension, Stabilitrac, who knows...Just sayin' for a daily driver, probably harder on the car than racing it...lol

I get what you mean, though if I had enough money to buy one let alone have it as a daily driver I would probably put back enough money for a new engine or at least $20k. I'd start modding and tuning right away lol

Sorry I'm too lazy to to dig up the articles for your benefit. You win, mustang is wayyyy better. But only because I don't feel like looking up the articles.

My recollection was even the magazines were surprised how good the 1LE is.

I'm sure GM has already figured out the "true cost of ownership" and what the buyers have in mind for these cars.....They'll want to get their share from that sort of owner's plan right out of the gate...lol..

My opinion is that the Z/28 will be limited production because of the CAFE numbers and I had heard that there was some sort of penalty on the Z06.
Pricing will have to be determined based on the projected number sold against the cost to produce and also the research and development costs. If there has been 4 million put into development, that will have to be divided into projected sales for however many years it will be produced. This cost willbe tacked on to every car before any are ever started down the production line.

...Exactly...Was trying to think of a diplomatic way of putting it, lol...but if you can afford to go high-end racing, have the means to maintain and/or even mod this thing for regular street and track use, that will be reflected in the MSRP for sure....

...It's their Halo car and Crown Jewel...and will want it's image to be just that....

c'mon.........really........if the mustang were better I'd own one. Point is, that sometimes you have to consider your opponent's capabilites......even though you hate their guts (especially for having such capabilities).

Rick Hendrick, Barrett Jackson to name a few would scoop it up. They'd be one of the few if it were $100,000. Lol

They said radio is optional but not included. One speaker is for the door/seat belt chime. Car will not have a radio unless you pay extra for it.

Ok so then that's my mistake. Radio is the same deal as A/C then. Not standard, but you can have it.

And when you think about what the Z/28 is designed for - it makes sense that A/C isn't standard. For one, the whole A/C system weighs a ton and two (and more importantly IMO) most/all tracks provide you from running the A/C while you're driving because of the condensation it produces.

Condensation means water droplets, water droplets mean the track could potentially have wet spots, wet spots on a track mean you're going to have a bad time.
