At this point, I'm speculating that the base V8 will be the LS3 since the 2008 Corvette has it.
Corvette will be a low-12 second car, so Camaro will probably be a mid-12 second car.

Just my guess.

My guess.

0-60 = High 4's low 5's
1/4 Mile = High 12's low 13's.
Top Speed = 165mph

These are the numbers I predict will be advertised.

I don't think 165 will be doable, as this car is not going to be as slippery as the 4th gen was. More HP, yes, but that front end is like a wall IMO.

Mid 12's quarter mile should be doable though.

With a good driver and track a stock, heavy, skinny tired, 2006 GTO can do:

0-60 in 4.6 seconds
1/4 mile in 12.9 seconds
top speed over 170 mph with the speed governor removed.


2009 Camaro guess:

0-60 in 4.5 seconds
1/4 mile in 12.7 seconds
top speed of 165 computer limited

Thanks for the feedback fellas.

I'm guessing:

0-60 should be low 4's

1/4mile will be mid to high 12's

Top speed will probably be around 170.

well the stock ls6 did low 11's ( given right track and good driver) Atco Raceway had a 10.9 sec stock Z06 ( besides radials ) but the Camaro should def be low - mid 12's. But be advertised as a mid to high 12 sec car.

I guess I should mention that this is with a 400-425 hp engine option and stock tires (might want to lower the air pressure).

I'll punt some 500hp numbers around make a guestimate later.
