March Road & Track... WTF?

So I get my new march Road & on crack and they are doing a shootout between the New ZL1 and some Jap crap GT-R Nissan awd thing. And I thought, how much more apples to oranges can you get. ZL1 still did very well mind you for almost half price too! But what a dumb test. Buyer of either car would not even be looking at the other one. Lol.

The GTR is classified as a supercar, so they really are not even in the same performance classification.

They did the comparison strictly our of hp numbers. It was actually a good showing for the ZL1 as it hung with a much more expensive AWD car. You are always going to get that with car mags. What would you rather them compare, the ZL1 and a GTR or the ZL1 and a Hyundai??? The fact that he ZL1 styed with the GTR at nearly half the price speaks volumnes. With just a few thousand dollars in mods you could have a car that will destroy the GTR in a striaght line.

I just received the issue yesterday. I will try to read some of it later today. Online college classes need to get knocked out first.

You have a point. I guess it makes more sense than comparing a ZL1 to a naturally aspirated Boss 302 with 440hp like Motor Trend.

Listen to what Carroll Shelby calls the Mustang 3-4x in first 70 seconds. It's unusual coming from him, but reveals in two words he really thinks about the product he endorses so much and how he has made a great living on the idea/belief. It also exposes, why the Camaro 5th Gen is so successful, without actually saying it. Congrats to the entire GM team for making the 5th Gen, and most recently, the LEGENDARY ZL1.

I agree that the price of the two cars are a world apart. The GTR is a world class super car for an almost affordable price. From what I've seen the ZL1 will be a world class muscle car for a more affordable price. As stated the GTR's price is out of my league. I'm really looking forward to recieving my ZL1. PJ you are wrong in calling the GTR " some Jap crap awd thing". As a 370Z owner I know the quality and engineering they build into them. Ofcourse I don't have anything good to say about Fords so I know where you are coming from LOL.

2012 ZL1 sn 1691 Black 6mt
