It would cost you a ton less to simply mod an SS. Can a 427 be put in. Sure can.

California Air Resources Board.

I was told it can be done with a C5 (fit and CARB reg. sticker) but it would cost about 20K.

Until somebody can show me a guarantee that it will be legal, I'm not taking that step.

It will be interesting to see how demand and sales play out... at 60 to 70k, there are a lot of other interesting and tempting track toys out there: C7 Z51, used C6 Z06s and Grand Sports, Cayman S, 911s, M cars, Lotuses, SRT10s, and more.

It will also be interesting to see what the ratio of garage-queen-still-in-the-factory-plastic Z/28s to tracked Z/28s ends up at.

What really sounds fun is picking up a used 2010-2013 SS and raiding the Z/28 GM Parts Catalog...

Damn! I was gonna post this on the Forums this morning but I got sidetracked!

I enjoy watching Jay's reviews, the man is very passionate and knowledgeable about a lot of cars.

I'd rather him be a host on US Top Gear than the guys they have now!

BTW, the Z/28 is going to be well north of $60K IMO...those brakes alone are easily $5,000

i posted in another thread back in may the car would be limited to 1500 units... i don't think anyone caught that!!! i also said the car would be priced somewhere around 80,000, and production will start in april 2014 and it will be a one year run ... so far i got one right.

Sometimes I question Jay's "true car guy" cred. Lots of huh? moments.

Still huge congrats to GM and even 23 mpg, wow!

Thought the same thing and meant to write it but forgot to. An aggressive stance for sure. There is nothing poseur looking about it as opposed to other wannabe "track cars" on the road. Going to be intimidating on the track for sure.

Yeah, it is always sad to me to hear of the bubble-wrappers getting their unappreciative hands on cool cars and packing them away for the sake of speculation. Pathetic really. As a car guy, I want to use the product as the creators intended. The whole never been rained on, never touched by human hands or looked at with an angry glance car ads just nauseate me. Here's a big FU to any of you jackwads reading this.

If it's an unlimited build, who cares? I think despite Jay's comment there will be as many as wanted.
