Sadly, because C2 had aero problem, it can reach it's true top speed. But GM claim is 170 mph.

Actually, it was 560. With that much power, you'd think it'd be faster, but with the close ratio 4 on the floor, the car is designed very much for acceleration, just like most other old school muscle cars.

It also happen in 1968 L88.

@ Mike B: It's never underrated. 430 Hp is one of GM trick to fool insurance company. Some magazine when tested this car feel this car had close performance like racing version. I believe the net was around 420 Hp.

I don't find reasonable the use of that output, not only was the 560hp not stock, even if it was underrrated the advertised 430hp gross hp would still be higher than the real as installed net hp, which was probably around 350hp or less.

Same deal like 1968 model and only 20 that ever made.
