Torque must be wrong! Isn't it 640lb-ft?

Probably just heavy with safety features like an Ftype or Vantage V12s which also look small in person.

So I just saw one of these this morning in a market lot, And good lord this thing looks good, They road presence is insane, Strangely I've seen one of these before a V6.. Either way a few things.

That splitter looks delicate, Sticks out all squaring like a son of a.

Those tyres, How in the he'll there not considered R Comps is beyond me.

And I have noticed a lot of the reviews have said the new Camaro is a big car....They must be frigging blind, This thing is in NO way big are all, It's small as shite, Shocked the he'll out of me how small it is.

Either way good job Chevy, Good job

Park 1960s Fiat 500 next to it and you will see how it's a big car :)

But it's bigger than 911. And probably bigger than M4.


User avatar

BR2+  5m ago @FastestLaps

Didn't even see this, Anyhoo, An M4 is damn near 100% the same size, I don't even get why some reviewers are calling it a big car, It's not even close to one. I was unbelievably surprised at how small it was after hearing all that, But man the road presence on that thing, Specially in the UK, Is insane.

Actually, length X width it has an identical footprint as a 5 series


User avatar

BR2+  5m ago @saxy

As compared to a 4 Series, 188vs184, 75vs73, 52vs54, There practically identical in dimensions, Which given the reviews makes the Camaro seem like a Phantom...


User avatar

saxy  5m ago @BR2+

I don't think height dimensions aren't representative of its actual size. Sure the 4 series is still taller, but the bulk of the bonnet on the Camaro is much bigger and higher. Its door panels are much higher. It definitely feels bigger than a 4 series, which imo is already too big to be a sports car


User avatar

BR2+  5m ago @saxy

I have not been able to get into a ZL1 yet, So i cannot say on that, I can only say on visual appearances. The Camaro looks wider, And much more aggressively proportioned, Where an M4 looks more "Average" shaped, You can tell , Or atleast me, That an M4 isnt as wide and low, But all in all there practically identical in there size, At first glance id even say the M4 looks a good deal bigger with exception of width, And id gladly take a ZL1 over any Bmw, With exception to "maybe" the late n great M3 CSL.


User avatar

saxy  5m ago @BR2+

I still wouldn't say they are the same size given that it's Width x Length is slightly greater than the outgoing 5 series. However surprisingly it is the same size as the Mustang... which in all practicality sense is weird cuz a M2 is over a foot shorter, 3 inches narrower (despite the swollen arches), and still has more room in the back than the Mustang, not sure about the Camaro.

Surprisingly the manual was faster in the corners but once it hit the straight the auto caught up, Interestingly enough the very last 3s the manual passed the auto n that's what allowed it to win, I don't get that at all, Something doesn't seem right in that test, Maybe the auto was loosing power some how, Because it should have pulled away much faster every chance, Not like Randy was power shifting or anything., Something is off.

The tire pressure reading was off during the lap time that went faster than the manual


User avatar

Flabernat  7m ago

I'm surprised the manual was quicker at Willow Springs as well. They even mention how the 10-speed auto uses very close-ratio gearing. Maybe Randy Pobst is just that good...


User avatar

saxy  7m ago

Yeah it made no sense, the manual was faster even in a straight line. I mean, it could be just that the gearbox is rubbish in the sense, too much power is lost in the complex conversions while the manual is a more power efficient delivery. (Which it usually is)


User avatar

BR2+  7m ago

I dont believe its faster then a Pdk, But given how fast trannys are this day and age, Can people actually tell? Either way there so fast that the difference is negligible, Downshifts were the last ones noticeable aspect, Its still not the smoothest, But even against a Pdk id say its similar. Problem is its got so many gears, 10, Thats its constantly shifting, If it were perfectly geard for a 10 speed, Thats a gear shift every 20mph, And i dont think thats a good thing, Hell the Auto in the ZO6 has 2 overdrive gears, And with the manual you wouldnt have to shift since the gears are longer. But one of the more interesting things i noticed, Is vs the manual, On the straights, Or atleast the very last 5s of the vid, The Auto was moving 6mph slower....

Either way, for a 3900lbs 62k car, This thing is incredible, Both on road and track, It beat a Turbo S, 570S, AMG GT, GrandSport, Which are all much lighter, more powerful(Sans C7) Have Dct(Again C7) And are much more expensive(C7) With competition tyres, And seats 4, That in itself is something amazing.


User avatar

saxy  7m ago

yeah chevy say it's faster than PDK... faster as in maybe for an upshift spcificaly from 2nd to 3rd. Then not only is everything else is slower, the downshifts are much slower, etc. it's just BS.


User avatar

BR2+  7m ago

It's not rubbish at all given the review, I believe it's down to the gearing for the track, Same thing with the ZO6 there, Chevy always gears it's performance cars absolutely horrible, The shifts are fast, But the shift speed on each gear is highly different, Listen to 2nd 3Rd n 4th, And they say it's faster or faster then Pdk, Yet there acceleration tests barely offer any improvement from the manual, Unlike a vast improvement from its German counterparts.


User avatar

saxy  7m ago

how did the Manual lap go faster than the 10 speed auto? is the 10 speed auto a bit rubbish or... auto's are not much faster, and the slower down shifts and too many gears make it slower?


User avatar

Its starts at $76,595 for the QV, And $38,735 Usd today i found out for the lesser model, And most likely around 20k+ with full options on both, Although double the price on whats practically the same car in that price range is somewhat silly, But i was damned close with my $80k estimate, Still $13k more then an M3, I dunno how much the QV will be fully loaded, But an M3 fully done is already $101k, So there are alot of options at that price range.


User avatar

I was wrong. The Giulia QV is 10000 USD more than this in the US.


User avatar

I agree and both disagree, on it being an "Instant Classic" I can see anyone from any time period paying full price and more for the 4C, But i dont think its price will get a jump, Plus for the most part limited edition cars usually do rise in price, But people these days are either greedy or just stupid to pay certain amounts for certain cars.

@Hyper

Damn, I cant remember the last time i visited the Alfa site, The price is listed there, Its 60k here, 5k more then the M3, Not sure how much either is fully done at the moment, But i think in just about every market, The price will be within 30k of each other.


User avatar

FastestLaps  1y ago

@BR2 Btw the 8C looks like one of the clearest examples of "instant classic" - collector's car right from the moment it left factory. Just googled prices in Europe and it seems like 8C owners could buy and drive it for tens of thousands of kms and get full money back + profit after just 5-6 years (provided the car was in pristine condition).

That doesn't happen to BMW M3/M4s... Even M4 GTS will not appreciate in just 6 years.

Italian cars is where the money's at. Even Maseratis (brand known for its depreciation on newer models) are climbing up in value. And I mean the 80s and 90s Maseratis which used to be viewed as "worthless" 5-10 years ago.

It's just a pitty I am not rich and can't buy up some :)

In Europe, Giulia QV starts at €72.000 and gets up to €90.000 with everything on, and M3 starts at €73.000 and gets up to €110.000 with everything on. Both manual transmission and carbon-ceramic brakes. Giulia QV>M3


User avatar

BR2+  1y ago

I dont see the QV being less then the M3, Hell the Alfa 4C "Starts" at 55k there, And the last Alfa Romeo sold there was the 8C, And that went for 235k, Albeit a limited edition model and it marked the return, But i dont see the Top model Giulia being less then 80k, Starting price. But we''ll see soon enough, I dont think a price has been set, Anywhere?..


User avatar

x y  1y ago

I don't think the QV could be sold for lot more than an m3 in the US. For example in some european countries the Alfa is cheaper.
So the Alfa could be close to this in price.


User avatar

BR2+  1y ago

But it's not a track monster, It's everyday use ability for the everyman that just happens to have big power, And not many cars achieve that, The only cars that come even remotely close to that are a Carrera S and GTRs, along with the QV, And those are pushing 100k usd, Dunno bout QV.


User avatar

saxy  1y ago

Agreed. Yes for $60k it's unbelievably great. But for a modern hardcore 650hp track monster, it's about the same speed as a 4-door Guilia.

All in mind is this was done by the factory, and not some magazine


User avatar

BR2+  1y ago

Decent? For 60k that is off the chart incredible.

But was expecting more


User avatar

hyperspeedd  1y ago

Yeah, but for $60k it's decent.

I almost hate to say it, But i was expecting more...
