I think this car will go down as one of the best muscle cars in history.

many people say the same about the camaro

nice, the Camaro is a fun car to drive, and looks killer on the street hope the 6G made it as well dont make sence to me to buy a 50.000 $ camaro but may its because I never ride a zl1 but still that car prove that is somethig out of this world

good job GM!

I just think that every car in the world is special in its own way... I think GM realice the zl1 was about a new standar in muscle cars, you can make a 600 with some money... but it will be almost impossible to build a car that can race at track and be a DD as the zlfun...

I HAD A 69 Z28 I BOUGHT IN JAN 71 AFTER MY SECOND TOUR. SPENT @$1000 IN MODS TO THE ENGINE OFF Road Z28 CHEVY CAM 12.5 PISTONS ETC. IT WAS A FUN CAR BUT IN NO WAY AS SOPHISTICATED AS MY 2013 ZL1 VERT.
LOVED THEM BOTH But WILL B GLAD TO DRIVE THE VERT 100K MILES AND NO REAL NEED TO HOT ROD IT...I DO HAVE A 75 RWHP KIT FROM JANETTY RACING TO INSTAL. JUST FOR THE HELL OF IT!!

something special about the 69 Z/28. Through the years I have owned a few dozen all stock original 68 & 69 Z/28 cars and all I can say is they look better and better as time goes on. The Camaro is special, always has been always will be.

Nice blurb. Except the part saying "Anyone can buy one". Automobile is out of touch.

In fact how many positive reviews has this "other car" recieved over the past year? How many awards? I actually haven't seen a single one on the road. I hope this one doesn't bother the trolls.
No question, the ZL1 is a better car than a GT500. And if you can only have one all purpose car, it's the one to go for. Yet I suspect it's the OTT GT500 built while Carol was still alive that will fetch the big bucks 20 plus years from now. Why? Because cars will continue to evolve and there will be better cars than the current ZL1, but cars as crazy fun as the current GT500? I doubt it.
