I know it's just a temp thing, but it reminds of something that just left "Bubba's Custom Performance Hoods" :L

Update: Looks like someone else also caught the car on the road. Looks like the same driver in both sets of pics. Possibly AutoWeek bought their pics from the same source?

This concept is a total tease. When are we going to get the Autobaugn,cheaper gas, and insurance premiums in this country so we can have some real fun with toys like that? :lou

Nope, it works on the race cars. Pretty incredible!

And the race car has the motor waaaay back in the chassis.

Just as note to anyone coming into this particular thread... the pics in this thread are a hoax. They are not the real pictures of the car. There is another thread around here with actual pics. You may want to hunt it down (shouldn't be too difficult) before they get taken down at the request of GM. :cool

TBH with all of you. I was at the regional meeting with the big wigs of GM and they wouldnt shed light on any of it. I can tell you that all these car magazine companies saying "This is the real pictures!" are full of it. GM is not going to release the photos until atleast the Detroit Auto show. The name SS isnt set in stone. My sources at GM are saying ZR-1, but the head honchos arent saying anything. they are letting speculation build for this much anticipated vehicle.

To answer your question about the Engine, It is called the LS9 and is a supercharged LS3 6.2L. The supercharger is fully integrated with a intercooler on the top of the motor
Already have these pics here :D
As well as dedicated topics of it here.
And some videos here. :cool

That is going to be one hell of a car. That will be the new ZR1 I think, but don't quote me.

Too late. You've been 'quoted' :L
You're a little late on the draw here. The ZR1 was announced back in January. Click!

In the market
Since the ZR1 is in production now, a thread with rumors about what it is going to be like seems a little redundant, so I'm going to un-sticky it.
