@Bijan, yeah, its actually called a Typo...the 2 being next to the 3...wow, So you need to think more. It doesnt matter how unpratical a car is for comparing them, nor making them, point is they made the car, extremely limited numbers, mbut produced it nontheless.

So i dot see a problem in comparing them, the ZL1 was road legal, there for making the comparison just fine, how fast a car is, wehter it be race car like or not shouldnt be a problem..

@ Super8 : you are right , a car with 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds and top speed of 180 mph , exactly the same as the Race car .
I complete agree with your opinion and your father's too , but as i said before ZL-1 was not a production car or Road legal of racing big blocks or Omologated one .
you are right again , why chevy tested yellow car " SECRETLY " .
in my opinion the vette's in 60' and 70' are unbeatable cars in several Tracks in FIA GT plus 5.0 class . from Daytona class winner to Sebring and class winner of Lemans GTS in 1972 and so .

@ Bijan : Like i said before: if there was a car who can accelerate from 0-60 mph under 4.5 sec and had speed over 180 to 190 mph, it means that car had same performance like race car. ZL1 had all of that characterisctic that's why Chevy did not release ZL1 in 69. When my father still work at GM, he already saw real Daytona Yellow ZL1. When he look at the performance data from chevy, he said that ZL1 is brutally fast car. It faster than racing version of L88. Chevy already test it secretly and hit 200 mph. Even so, everybody think that this data is GM fantasy but the reality it's not and there still no explanation why this data is leaking. They use Daytona Yellow version at this test

@ Super8 : ZL-1 was not a production car , if that be , was very unpractical , ask your father , he tell you truth .
There are several cars in 69 that could go over 175 , such as 33 Stradale to ram air IV birds , Hemi wingwonders , 365 GTB/4 , ghibli SS 4.9 , Grifo 7 , Some Lambos , L-89 and ......

@ BR2 : you must be read more kid .
Maserati Bora with 220 bhp ?????

@ Bijan : However the Yellow Daytona paint job got a Muncie M20 with 3.36 final ratio. Even no magazine ever test it, but Chevy already make an estimated. With all of that power, the Daytona Yellow one should be enough to hit 180 mph or maybe over. But i'm sure this car will never sold to public cuz back in 69, if there any car that can reach 0-60 below 4.5 sec and Top speed over 180 mph is surely have a same performance like a race car.

@ BR2 : The Corvette Hp is Gross. But the ZL1 engine for Corvette got more power than ZL1 Camaro version. My guess the Corvette got 425 hp net standard but with OEM exhaust, it should be close to 500 hp. Then again, Corvette is much faster on straight line performance. But on track performance, Ferrari might be had a chance to chase it since it's not easy to drive 500 Hp on rear wheel.

You certainly do speak some shit, those are close rivals because this is one of the rarest cars ever, you dont have to be mid engined to be a rival or a supercar, 500bhp+ in those times with this performance is enuff to call this a supercar, fact, and theres nothing history about comparing to cares that werent compared, its all us, were comparing not a renownd motoring mag, The Maserati Bora was not a competitior to this, not with 220bhp at the wheels.

@ BR2 : We speak about history , not everything that you like this .
In 1970' closest rivals to the Ferrari Berlinetta Boxer are Maserati Bora , Lamborghini Countach and the detomaso pantera . all with high-tech chassis , modern suspensions , mid-engines and .........
in the other hand , who says that 69 vette is a super car ? maybe you . well done .
Zora-Arkus Duntov with a team from motor trend tested a White and red ZL-1's in 1969 and never says that this 2 can reach more than 180 , the white one tested with 3.73 final ratio and the other one with 4.88 . ZL-1 was a big block corvette with a Race breed engine that never go to the mass production , the real vette's in 69 that could smoke many sports cars at Road and Track , are the L-71'S and LT-1'S .

@ Bijan : This two are super car since there's only 2 ZL1 and it's very expensive just like Ferrari. ZL1 is very impressive sports car back in 1969. It should be enough to smoke newer GT4 B/B

So what if the 365 was Mid engined? If that BB is a Super, then so is the ZL1. I dont see anything wrong with the comparison.

@ Super8 : there are some problems in this comparison :
ZL-1 made in 1969 but the BB made in 1974 .
ZL-1 was a front engine but the BB was a mid engine Super car .
The BB's performance figures seems be wrong .
