LOL is all I have.
TCL favorite answer "I rather have a Mustang". Doesn't matter if you are talking about buying a Prius or R8, answer is always ' I rather have a Mustang"
From a collector standpoint, I'd totally buy it. A brand new showroom stock SLP ZL1 with the manual is pretty rare. Not fair to assess this car's performance-for-the-dollar value as the price is derived from the rarity of it.
I want to know how much the Camaro Drag Pack cars are going for.
IIRC, the Ford Cobra Jet and Challenger Drag Pak went for low-mid 70s from the dealer.
It's a new-age Yenko. Stick it in the garage for the next 40 years and never drive it and you'll be able to get your money back. ;)
I'd rather have the real ZL1.
Theres a 2012 camaro at the local dealer ship that costs about 120K as well
All i remember it had 750+ HP and had "HPE" letters on it with cross drilled brakes
And guys who are in their 20s and 30s today wanting that car, will eventually be in their 60s, still wanting that car, and will likely put down an absurd amount of money for it given the chance. And they'll take it to a car meet. And they'll stand around, talking with the other guys in their 60s who will mill around their CRX, admiring the lines and talking about the "good ole' days" (ie. 1989).
That camaro has a 300+ horsepower pinstripe added on by the dealer that nobody wants.
I cannot see the point of a $125K Camaro. I can see the argument against taking an SS and "upgrading" it yourself to a standard ZL1 level, as clearly the ZL1 has been thoroughly engineered by Chevy to mark a huge improvement in the Camaro's dynamic abilites (so say the publications). But the argument for an $80K package that's more than likely going to be traction limited like crazy, is baseless. And it's not going to be a collector car just because it's rare today, unless the SLP ZL1 has won some sort of championship that I'm not aware of.
Ill put my money into a Z06 and keep the change.
This thread is essentially a number of people complaining that Chevy makes a Camaro that they can't afford.
Who is going to buy it? Obviously not you so don't worry about it.
I don't know why people are hating on this car so hard. It's got 750hp and has a top speed of 205 mph. That's pretty freakin awesome IMO. The price is a different story, but I wouldn't buy even a $30k camaro, so the fact that this hopped up version is $125k doesn't mean much to me. I can appreciate it for what it is. Like the guy a few posts up, I've also seen this car in person at the Philly car show and it looked very well done.
Is this a proof of theory exercise? SLP is telling Chevrolet that their product is underpowered and under priced. Put this thing side by side with a Chevrolet ZL1 and I bet it still sells to the right person.
Who is going to complain when Lenno gets spotted in one?
id rather buy a gtr for that money. wth?
wtf is up with that exhaust? so ugly :screwy:
Oh my heavens why is the entire first page of this thread missing the point? This is literally the best performing Camaro ever. It's also going to be extremely rare. Of course, even if there are only a couple thousand build it's still not rare according to TCL. :laugh:
This isn't a 5.0, or a Boss 302, or a ZL1. It's a SLP ZL1. Like a Saleen Mustang or any other of the high end tuners. It's a COPO or a Baldwin motion. There are people who would prefer a Camaro that would wax a R8 or a Porche ya know. Even at the same price.
Seems about right given the price of used cars these days
SLP is awesome. I'm not in love with some details on this particular example but the motor is very nice and I won't knock someone else who has the means to enjoy it.
Just for reference:
1969 z/28 sticker price was $3588.
1969 Baldwin motion sticker was $9330.
More than I can afford, pals.
I'd rather have Leno's twin-turbo 3.6-liter V6 Camaro.
What if it was painted like Bumblebee? Worth it then? :D
