This Camaro ZL1 has the same supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine used in the
CTS-V line of Cadillac luxury cars.
The Caddy is rated 19 mpg highway. Should be interesting, not something I'd
want to drive to work with a long commute.
What difference does that make? I will bet its got A/C and will sit in
traffic just fine and keep you cool. Now, having 550HP and NOT being
able to mash the gas petal to go because of traffic is another issues
;) Its probably not going to burn much more gas in a traffic jam than
a suburban or large SUV would.
It would not surprise me either with stiffer suspension that it would
drive more like a early corvette. The price to pay for being fast i
guess. But with those huge brembos and 20" ties i will bet 60 to zero
times are astounding ...
I had a 428 Cobra Mustang I tried to drive in that traffic. I accepted the
fact that Ford didnt offer AC in that car, but that was not the problem
I was talking about.
In a relatively small chassis, that engine put out so much heat that it
overpowered the car's cooling system regularly. It was no fun, and
I would not doubt that this car might also suffer in that regard. Over
the long haul, it was a car I grew to hate.
I guess you pay for driving something like this over the long haul.
I wouldn't buy a GM, but I don't care about fuel costs. Just buy enough
shares of oil so the dividends pay for the heat and gas required. If
gas goes up, so does the stock and dividends.
Sort of like a prepaid energy plan.
I wish I was shorter, I would get a Euro sports car.
Socialism is a great ideal as long as someone else pays for it. And when
no one is left to pay for it, they all can share nothing.
i was watching "Pawn Stars" on cable the other day and
they had an early lotus come in mint condition.
The main dude in the pawn shop could not get into it
without stuffing himself in. Kind of funny.
I guess there is some advantages of being a small dude.
