blizofoz45 Posted September 28, 2019 Share Posted September 28, 2019 So I had a 2012 V6 Camaro that I drove till 2016 and traded it for a 2016 RS V6. Seven years of driving a V6. The 2012 was the best-looking but it was the slowest. 325HP but it just didn't go. The 2016 was a night and day improvement in terms of acceleration and handling. It was also smaller, leaner and had a much more aggressive transmission. But it was still a V6. So Chevy announced this new LT1 trim and I thought if I could find a good deal, I'd go for it. I found one locally for $33k and made the deal. The price of the SS comes from all the track-ready parts they put it on it as standard equipment instead of options. So that puts the 1SS pretty close to $40k. Of course you can always haggle and hold out for a promo sale but insurance is based off MSRP rather than sale price. The V8 is awesome. I'm finally driving a car that sounds right and the torque is everywhere on this thing. It doesn't need high RPMs to pull. Just the sound of a V8 starting up even with the standard exhaust is magical. And of course the 445HP and 455 foot pounds of torque. The engine from the Corvette in a mid-range priced sports car. I haven't had the radio on once since I bought it. So anyway here's what it looks like. Chevy went with the less aggressive Turbo 4/V6 refresh grill on it but if I get the inclination I can always swap it for the SS grill. I'll for sure be getting spoiler for it. 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
