      Saw a commercial last night on local tv for this so a buddy and I decided to go take a look. Yes, this thing has an incredible engine in it, some pricy Brembos, and nice wheels, but crap people, who would pour $85K into a $37K car? Sadly, they will have no problem selling it....there are plenty of redneck old men around here that'll write a check for it and then park it in their garage.

      I don't know why, but I feel as if the ZL1 badge right next to sidemarker makes the sidemarker stand out...

      Not to nitpick.

      That is a crazy price for a ZR1 package!

      My favorite feature of the newer Camaro............. The worthless truck!

      I really wish everyone would update their location in their profile!

      Someone buy my car already!!

      Suspension looked totally unchanged except for an Eibach lower sway bar...oh, but it did have Katskinz leather seat covers custom installed.

      6 figures makes me start thinking Audi R8, Porsche 911, BMW 6 or 7, Benz S or SL, Jag or other 6 figure machines that will make for much better chickmagnet mobiles.

      Dang you quoted my typo before I caught it! Hehe

      Not "ZR1" but supposed to be "ZL1." Whoops.

      If there is a customer who is willing to buy it for that price, why not?

      But that's.....epically small.

      And that's an epically astronomical price. I hate Camaros.

      Yes, because people buy Camaro convertibles to haul their groceries around in.

      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?

      Sooooooooooo............ what exactly costs $87,805? An engine, brakes, wheels, and presumably a new suspension?

      ALso, good thing the engine is labeled with how much hp it has. Just so we know.

      The wording on the window sticker implies this is a dealer add-on. Is it a REAL ZL-1????

      Especially when a Shelby GT 500 Super Snake is under $100K....

      It started life out as an SS...then got the "SLP LZ1" treatment.
