Buy a ZL1 Camaro Convertible.

http://blogs.insideline.com/straight...nvertible.html

Price: $80,000 (Plus cost of a donor 1SS or 2SS -- $31,070/$34,420 -- for a total of $111,070 - $114,420)
Acceleration
0-30 (sec): 2.0 (2.2 with T/C on)
0-45 (sec): 3.0 (3.2 with T/C on)
0-60 (sec): 4.3 (4.6 with T/C on)
0-60 with 1-ft Rollout (sec): 4.0 (4.3 with T/C on)
0-75 (sec): 5.9 (6.1 with T/C on)
1/4-Mile (sec @ mph): 12.2 @ 117.2 (12.5 @ 117.9 with T/C on)

Now for comparison:
2011 Shelby GT500 (NOT the 800hp Super Snake)\
Price: $55,330
0-30 mph (sec): 2.0 (2.2 with T/C on)
0-45 mph (sec): 3.2 (3.5 with T/C on)
0-60 mph (sec): 4.4 (4.7 with T/C on)
0-60 with 1 foot of rollout (sec): 4.1 (4.4 with T/C on)
0-75 mph (sec): 6.0 (6.1 with T/C on)
1/4-mile (sec. @ mph): 12.4 @ 116.0 (12.5 @ 116.5 with T/C on)
http://www.insideline.com/ford/shelb...nts_sort_form1

So, in conclusion-
There's no way in hell that car is making 750hp... ever. Buy a GT500 (or even a stock Camaro SS if you NEED a bowtie) and spend $10k in mods and walk circles around the ZL1... while having $50k in your pocket. Afterall, $112k is ALOT to ask of a man with a mullet.

Now- to be fair, this is the SLP version, not the production one. These numbers are still VERY pertinant though seeing as SLP is who had key hands in designing the production version of the Coupe that will be arriving shortly. With all the hype that car has gotten and all the squirrely tails that are a'spinnin, it better come up with better numbers than this by the time it hits showrooms.

I want a 69 ZL1.
Nothing like an old school 427 for a good time.

I just saw that for 12' there is a 550 HP Camaro available
and it's supposed to be around the price of that GT500.
