Interesting, but long experience and many past disappointments make me stay interested but not put a lot of faith in this.

That car in the picture looks like little more than a lightly modified ZO6: no telling what is really under the hood. And I personally think GM would just stick with 7 liters if it wanted to supercharge something for this car, the 6.2 is, as far as I know, only available in iron (the extra .2 liters over the 6 liter LS2 coming from not having to sleeve the iron block), and I still wonder if GM would release something with that much HP and only 2 wheel drive - it will have to have one hell of a smart stability control system.

Yea we'll have to see what happens to this one.
I think I would like to see a body change, or some re styling before i would spend $100,000 for, really nothin more than a supercharged 6.2. I believe you have to start justifying a purchase like that, $40,000 additional for the added HP, and the supercharged engine, just does not justify itself.
We'll have to see how this ends up, Is it GM's new super model, or just another pipe dream.
I wonder how many GM needs to sell per year to justify there costs?
