Its not quad its a duel with twin tips on the muflers
Colin Dzendolet Sep 27, 2011
@patrick it's gonna have a quad exhaust too
Colin Barr Sep 26, 2011
That's funny considering the 2nd 2009/10 Camaro sold on barrett Jackson for like $600k lmao
Caleb Lochridge Sep 26, 2011
47k? Nice price. I thought since the first ZR1 sold for 1M and retailed at 100k after that, it would mean that this ZL1 selling for 250k would mean the retail would be like 25k. I should keep dreaming huh
Patrick Schalk Sep 26, 2011
It's only gonna be 47k?!?!?! Hell yes!
Sebastian Grey Sep 26, 2011
What extra 10 cents? You mean the next sentence that says "100 percent"?
Andrew Grimm Sep 26, 2011
Yea it's crazy how much people will pay for the first car made. But I understand that a lot of people like having the first one for collecting purposes.
Andrew Grimm Sep 26, 2011
And I watched this auction. It was crazy how high it was going up in the bids. I thought it was gonna go higher.
Andrew Grimm Sep 26, 2011
Atleast he didn't pay 1 million dollars like the first ZR1 sold at.
Cory Kemps Sep 26, 2011
That extra 10 cents must've shown a brutal bidding war haha
Ken Madison Sep 26, 2011
Good deal on the charity part.
Vincent Gaglioti Sep 26, 2011
He also payed a lot of money for the first volt
Colin Dzendolet Sep 27, 2011
@ken I've seen a 94 Supra dynoed at 645rwhp with a stock exhaust and stock bottom end, no fart can or rice about it
Colin Dzendolet Sep 27, 2011
@michaelgallagher nothing is overpriced at BarrettJackson, it's all about what the market will bear for that vehicle @ that time, and for charity it's always worth extra $ for a good cause
Vincent Butler Sep 27, 2011
How about that 700k go for schooling!!!
Ken Madison Sep 26, 2011
I hope that $700,000 went to the wounded warrior project. They do great things.
No Pistons Sep 26, 2011
Ya they are a must to attend oh and the donor car for the troops went for $700k
Stephen Ishard Sep 26, 2011
No it adds 820 because of the fart can it's a ricer thing
Ken Madison Sep 26, 2011
I was agreeing with you Miguel haha. And I really need to start going to these auctions then.
No Pistons Sep 26, 2011
Ya Ken it was a real treat to see how much the donation cars went for along with just being able to see over 300 classics/true American muscle ranging from 50s corvettes to srt vipers and custom hot rods
Miguel Blanco Sep 26, 2011
I meant that a 800 hp Civic can't defeat the Camaro. I said it wrong. My bad
Ken Madison Sep 26, 2011
Agreed, you won't go anywhere with 800 to the front. And no pistons, I'd love to have been there.
Shane Carroll Sep 26, 2011
@Miguel yeah, 800+ to the FRONT wheels, good luck with that
Miguel Blanco Sep 26, 2011
Just because it has 800 horsepower mean it can kill this thing. I'd love to see that 800 hp kill this on turns
Greg Lewis Sep 26, 2011
Psh, fodr tranny bad? My poor dodge still goes through a 5-speed auto stick! And if I recall the first challengers were blue srt8's that went on eBay for 225k. Always good to see someone with money give it up for charity.
No Pistons Sep 26, 2011
I was able to get on the bidder floor for this, a lot and I mean a lot of nice rides came through. I believe a car sold for around $200k with it going straight to the troops. A mosier rapter GTR was also auctioned off that was a treat to see
Caleb Lochridge Sep 26, 2011
Wait, an 820hp fart can? I gotta see this!! :-)
Sebastian Grey Sep 26, 2011
@Elwood. *you're, they're, doesn't. Come on buddy, let's try to use some proper grammar on this site. This isn't some inane Internet comment board.
Patrick Schalk Sep 26, 2011
Well at least the transmissions aren't junk like in the Mustangs.
Michael Gallagher Sep 26, 2011
Yay! Barrett Jackson. Where everything is overpriced. Yippie
Jorge Martins Sep 26, 2011
Ken stop the hate! My buddy's over tuned 820hp fart can civic ricer what ever you wanna a call it will kill this thing. This car is awesome. I wish I had one.
Elwood Friedchicken Stcharles Sep 26, 2011
@Ken what do u mean supra are overtuned just because there fast dont mean there overtuned or a ricer
Ken Madison Sep 26, 2011
Over tuned? I believe your thinking of all the old Supras and ricers, those are "over tuned"....
Miguel Blanco Sep 26, 2011
I love the Camaro but it looks hideous at this angle
Description: Delivery of his new ZL1 will take place early in 2012. But why exactly is this particular ZL1 so special and worth top dollar? Besides those who will benefit from the sale, it will be the only 2012 ZL...

So only 68 original ZL1s were produced at Oshawa? Where was the other one made?
Ken Madison Sep 26, 2011
It wouldn't be hard to make a engine similar to the C5R and even C6R.
Caleb Lochridge Sep 26, 2011
They should give us a corvette with the same specs as the C5R but street legal
Andrew Grimm Sep 26, 2011
The 1969 Corvette Sting Ray ZL1 was my dream car and was planning on buying one one day, until I found out only 3 were made. So I'm going to just try and buy one with the L88.
Description: Total power output was officially rated at 430hp, but in reality could produce over 500hp. Appropriately, the '69 Camaro was recently voted as the "best Chevy of all time" in a recent o...

Thts crazy and a smart way to make a lot of money.
Colin Dzendolet Sep 27, 2011
@Andrew check out streetfire.net, old friend of mine dropped an ls1 into an fd rx-7, siiiiick
Michael Palazzo Sep 26, 2011
I want this, I'd love to see the look on this guys face if I rolled up next to him in a ZL1 in the same color from a custom paint shop.
Andrew Grimm Sep 26, 2011
I want a stockish looking 97 240sx kouki with an LS6 under the hood. That's a pretty big sleeper, until I hit the gas ;]
Greg Lewis Sep 26, 2011
Or that article about the Chinese guy mad at his lambo and beat it with a sledge... Looks like other camaro's? True car lovers want sleepers... That's what this bad boy is!
Sebastian Grey Sep 26, 2011
That's because it is the same as a regular Camaro. Do you know what tuning is?
David Rosenberg Sep 26, 2011
Looks the same as the regular camaro!?!
Ben Watson Sep 26, 2011
What's different about the color? Metallic or pearl?
Michael Palazzo Sep 26, 2011
such a cool color, too bad its a one of a kind
