I like the car and the wheels. They still can't get the interior right though.
This must be a very nice drive.

I get to use the ZR1 steering wheel everyday. It's the exact same one in the Cobalt, except it has the Chevy bowtie logo instead of the Corvette one. The Cobalt retails for as low as $12k brand new... both levers behind the wheel are also present in the Cobalt. I guess Chevrolet found a cheap way to use the same parts in all its cars.

That's another reason why they should work more on the interiors. While the steering wheel may be fine, it's not nice for the ZR1 buyer to see he's getting the same kind of finishing you get on a Cobalt.

Indeed. I was hoping for something more along the lines of what if found in a Lambo or Ferrari.

Z06 isn't a muscle car, it's a sports car.

620 horsepower is a disappointment. I was really hoping for 700, but oh well. Too bad it looks like a lame aftermarket company made it, reminds me of a Steeda Mustang or something. That hood looks retarded. I wish I liked it. Sigh.

620 is an estimate. GM stated AT LEAST 100hp/liter.

What's new? Hasn't General Motors been putting the same steering wheel & bits and pieces in all its cars?

Not that 620bhp is what I'd call underpowered...

Well until now I didn't know they did, and I kinda hoped they wouldn't put the same steering wheel found in a $12k compact car into their brand new flagship ~$110k sports car.

Don't worry in your £90 grand Aston you'll still get the key from a £14 grand Volvo.

It's worse than that, he absolutely loved his 96 bhp Plymouth Voyager...
