Umm no a zl1 wouldn't even be close to it, either would a zr1 or a gtr Not even close This engine doesn't make 550 there right around 1000 and were taking ours out really soon to engine dyno it on our dyno to see what they really make for sure
Blake E VanDyke Jan 21, 2013
Yeah no a zl1 or even a zr1 would be no where near this. Supposed to run mid 8's
Patrick Schalk Jan 21, 2013
Nah, this would decimate a ZL1 in the 1/4.

You're Aventador isn't for charity.
Lou Guerrero Jan 21, 2013
Why is the motor in cubic inches and the blower in liters?
Blake E VanDyke Jan 21, 2013
I personally know the purchaser. He was willing to pay 600k for it and it will not be raced.
Tin Nguyen Jan 21, 2013
I'd rather have an aventador
Andrey Lobko Jan 21, 2013
I was there watching it roll off the block. Remember - it is for charity. Otherwise not exactly bang for your buck.
Patrick Schalk Jan 21, 2013
It's factory built and there's only two of them.
Alex Hohenzollern Jan 21, 2013
Wouldn't it be way cheaper to convert it yourself who would pay that kind of money?
Chris Huff Jan 21, 2013
Oh ya for drag
Chris Huff Jan 21, 2013
3 speed?

400K for a camero. IDC what the specs are and features if i had 400k right now fosho would go for a classier and luxurious bently conten. or a sporty lambo. Gall. Over this
Caleb McCoy Jan 24, 2013
I want one still
Trent Fiala Jan 24, 2013
But then after that they think they are done for good with making the copo until however many years down the line they decide to again Haha
Trent Fiala Jan 24, 2013
Unfortunately from when I talked to the guys at the place where there built they said they will never be factory built or mass produced and that for 2013 there having places bid on for being able to make them and there going to make 69 more
Trent Fiala Jan 24, 2013
@Justin, ohh alright I gotcha Haha I just misheard what you said but I see what you mean now
Justin Johnson Jan 23, 2013
Trent, that's what I mean. I'll hold off for a factory, mass produced, tested and tuned product.

Cobra Jet Always!!!!!!!!!!
Trent Fiala Jan 22, 2013
@Justin, just correcting you but these cars were only built by like 9 different guys and they are not gm mechanics who build them, there just regular guys who are really good at there job and work at a small racecar shop in Wixom, Michigan
Justin Johnson Jan 22, 2013
Joe, I'll trust 50 GM engineers over a body shop and pocket the remaining $350k. If someone truly cares about charity, why not just donate the money, instead of hyping up a car. I'm a diehard GM fan but this isn't special enough for $400,000.
Trent Fiala Jan 22, 2013
This car is 1 of 2 and I was able to see the other one at the place where they were all built when we picked up ours which is also 1 of only 2, super badass cars!! I love the copo especially cause I have one, 327 with the 4.0 liter supercharger
Blake E VanDyke Jan 21, 2013
400k for a one of a kind car when you have an original 69 copo to pair it with is not crazy. Especially when he can write it off as charity
Patrick Schalk Jan 21, 2013
Michael, maybe, maybe not. But he could pass it down to his kids.
Thomas William Tuer-sipos Jan 21, 2013
Think*

If you had the money to buy something for a great charity and spending that much did not kill you financially and you most likely have all the cars you want already then yes this is something great to buy, I personally the the guys great for this
Michael Montefusco Jan 21, 2013
50 years from now teh buyer will likely be dead and not see his theoretical millions.
Joe Kanser Jan 21, 2013
Justin: you do realize the car is 1 of 2 and will likely be worth millions 50 years from now? And the fake wheelie is for display purposes obviously.
Marcus Espineta Jan 21, 2013
That's understandable for charity then....I stand corrected
Taylor Garry Jan 21, 2013
These people have obviously never seen a charity auction
Tyler Tarbox Jan 21, 2013
The person who bought the car was spending that much because all funds raised were donated for a good cause
Justin Johnson Jan 21, 2013
Joe, opinions are like... $400,000 is too much for this car. I'm sticking to it.
Joe Kanser Jan 21, 2013
Too many mouth breathers comment on things they do not understand.
Patrick Schalk Jan 21, 2013
Wow, I hate stupid people.
Mohammed Shamma Jan 21, 2013
People are officially going crazy.
Oscar Galvan Jan 21, 2013
All proceeds from the sale will go directly to the American Heart Association.
Marcus Espineta Jan 21, 2013
Wow some jerkoff paid that much for that pos!!!
Natalino Monastra Jan 21, 2013

Justin Johnson Jan 21, 2013
$400k for this and a fake wheelie!
Description: Consider this the perfect combination for a fast quarter-mile drag race, only with the top down. All proceeds from the sale will go directly to the American Heart Association. The question remaining, ...

@Chris It's funny because you're so naive. It's a two of a kind, FACTORY BUILT, ORIGINAL car, and all of the proceeds go the American Heart Association. Shut up, asshat.
Taylor Garry Jan 21, 2013
This guy vv smh...
Chris Huff Jan 21, 2013
I wouldnt spend 400k on a drag convertible i would just do it myself for 300k less
Owen Tiernan Jan 21, 2013
Why would anyone want a convertible as a drag purpose car?! That's stupid!
Sam Reinsel Jan 21, 2013
It's a drag car, the front wheels aren't really nessecary.
Miranda Nearlydriftingondreams Pavelle Jan 21, 2013
Why are the front wheels so tiny?
Trey Reilly Jan 22, 2013
Cool.
Jorge Gonzalez Jan 22, 2013
Plus the smaller engine can probably rev way higher.
Lou Guerrero Jan 21, 2013
A 5.4 is little? Perspective: Agera R uses a 5.0.
Brenden Vaughn Jan 21, 2013
Big pointless short ram intake=$50,000
Tara Fitria Jan 21, 2013
Looks off a bit
Dave Rain Jan 21, 2013
Idk why the small engine, and big supercharger. Lame
