Wow. Starting to see some on the dealer lots, and reading the reviews.

~$30K for a base model. 426 hp LS3 motor. Sub 5 second 0-60, 13.0 1/4mi, brembo 14.0" brakes.

Hell of a car for the dough.

Had a black one drive through my neighborhood last night, looked pretty nice. I would drive it.

That's dirt cheap, for what you get. Seems almost underpriced, considering it's Dodge counterpart is 40k (and the previous Camaro SS stickered at almost 40k).

Gotta compare apples to apples. Suggested MSRP:

V6: $21,750 base, $36,620 fully optioned.

SS: $28,145 base, $41,745 fully optioned.

Z28: $39,250 base, $44,985 fully optioned.

The base model of all three is pretty plain Jane. If you want decent options, the price climbs quickly. Lowest base price for a Challenger is $22,945 and for a Mustang it's $20,430. They're really all about the same as far as pricing.

Why is the Z more, I always thought the top performer of the Chevys was the SS? :shrug:

I know you can get a very similar engine in a Mustang. Not sure if one is available for the Challenger. I read an article recently in Motor Trend where they tested the Hemi Challenger and Mustang GT side by side. The Mustang spanked the Challenger in every category, mainly because the Challenger is a heavy pig of a car. A similar test with the new Camaro would be interesting.

I'd like to see that comparison, would the similiarly equipped stang be in the same price range as the Z28?

Yep. A Roush supercharged 'Stang runs 545 HP and 465 lb-ft of torque. We looked at them when Kathy was shopping for her new one. They don't make a convertible, which Kathy wanted, so we didn't get one. They have an MSRP around the $44k mark.

I can have the dealer install a Roush supercharger on Kathy's 'Stang and keep the full factory warranty. :evil: She's not yet convinced. :D

They decided to swap the Z and SS packages for the new model.

In the Gen 1 version of the Camaro, the Z28 was the top dawg.

I don't know about years after that. Most of them were meh.

A friend of mine has a 2007 GT500 Mustang (or is it a 2008 model year:confused:). He paid more than the current Z28, but we would also pay less for his GT500 in the current model.

The Shelby GT500 Mustangs are expensive, mainly due to speculation by collectors and the limited production numbers. The local dealer here got one Shelby GT500 KR in last year. The KR stands for King of the Road. It's conservatively rated at 540 RWHP from the factory, which makes it the most powerful production Mustang Ford has ever built. The sticker price was just over $80k. It sold in less than a week for ~$120k. :eek:

I always figured that the newest production car should be the most powerful run of that model built. Doesn't always work out that way, but with technology always advancing, it should.

So I fully understand what you are saying and mean, I always find it a little funny that it's a selling point to a vehicle.

My neighbor had a Rousch SC convertible. Black on silver. #427. He just turned it back after some job misfortunes. :(

One really cool thing about the 500KR is you can't buy any of the KR specific parts unless you can prove ownership of an actual 500KR.

Hopefully this cuts down on the clones in future years. I'm sure somewhere the aftermarket will produce badging, etc. but it will take a while.

I never was a big Chevrolet fan, except for the First Z28's. The first ones were not even badged with Z28. Base model with a deep down on the order form a Z28 option, but the car was not badged.

I had a 67 Z28 (302) for a short time. Then had a chance to get a 69 ZL1 (427), but was too costly at $7,200 and I ended up getting a 69 Dart (340) for $2,800

I like these new ones too so far from what I have seen, but I will not be getting one. I do hope it works for them but I think it will be a short lived nitch sale only.

Very nice but I can't see spending that much on a car. If I decide I must have one then I'll wait til I can get a used one in a few years :D
