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

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

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

      If I had money to spend like that and had my heart set on a Camaro I would buy a few cheaper ones so me n my friends could go and have some fun rather then have just one

      The Shelby 500 is a bargain compared to the ZL1. I just wait for one of the big motor mags to do a Shelby 500 vs ZL1 comparo test, you know that's bound to happen

      No, it's not. I bet the new GT500 comes in a good $5K more than the ZL1.

The Mustang would also look nicer than this tacky Camaro.
      Uh.. Did you happen to notice the "SLP 750 HP" sticker? That's 200hp more than a stock ZL1. It's obviously done up by SLP, like the old "firehawk" trans ams, for example. And to tell you, my BOSS 302 would NOT keep up with a 750HP camaro in a straight line unless it couldn't hook up.

      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.

      Tough call, But as mentioned above, I would rather an R8, Mercedes, or Porsche with a warranty that I could legally register...
      I'm pretty sure that car IS smog legal and has a warranty. That's not to say it's worth the money though...

      These new cars will never be as collectible as the old metal, not by a long shot. A Yenko or Copo ZL1 will always be desirable; this? Not so much.

      I'm not so sure about that. Look at how TCL reacted the other day to that limited-edition 1989 CRX Exclusive, which is certainly not "old metal" in the same vein as a 1960s Camaro. But people want that car. Want want want.

      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).

      Gosh I hate to rain on your parade but the pic you have presented as proof...is of a convertable. So of course the trunk is gonna be super small. Just saying.
