    I haven't seen the 2013 yet, but I know they have been making the ZL1 since 2011 or 2012. Its a nice car, but when you are spending that type of money, how much better or worse is a corvette?

    The local dealer was trying to stop my from buying a ZL1 and put me in a Cadilac CTSV with 600hp for an extra 30k...... over the ZL1.
    I left the dealer wondering why I even bothered going there to see the ZL1 and hav no intention of looking at the caddy for the premium they want.

    With the amount of power the standard SS has, I have a hard time finding a time when I would need/be able to use nearly 600 hp.

    I don't think the ZL1 is for general consumption at that price. Yeah, if I were buying, I'd have a hard time justifying a ZL1 over a comparably priced Corvette.
