Yes, he did. I would guess that he was referring to the A6, but possibly he is referring to the 6-speed manual (in the Z06/ZR1)?

Good info..

Thanks for posting.
Me too. I just read that the base trim will have the same aero but non carbon fiber and a Z51 spoiler instead.

I'm assuming the reduced mass of the 8-speed auto was in comparison to the 6-speed auto.

Agreed!

Someone's a $ $ is getting chewed for sure over the reveal fail.

If GM knew the reveal was going to suck so bad, they could have at least incorporated this video in the reveal and that would have at least carried the event vs. the corporate meeting everyone fell asleep in this morning they provided us.

Indeed--this is a road course monster, not a drag racer. I'd get a car with a solid rear axle as a nice place to start. That said, you can drag anything if you want to, even if all that expensive Z06 hardware is a waste at the drag strip.

3 different aero option packages plus automatic or manual trans will add to the complexity of ordering these cars for the dealer stock.
Looks like carbon brakes will be extra to.
Wouldn't want to be cleaning the bugs off that very 'busy' new front grill! Even the rear bumper vents are bigger to.

Love it! As for it being used on a drag strip, let people do what they want with their cars. With the 8L90 this thing is gonna cook at the strip, I'll just go ahead and say it now, stock car will pull 10's under ideal conditions which is pretty amazing. Although an average Joe on an average track under average conditions should hit 11.5. This car will beat the new Viper TA around Laguna Seca and VIR, and Ring times should be at least ZR-1 fast.

It's a good time to be a car nut!

S.
The NCM site says the new 8Spd Auto is roughly 8lbs lighter than the A6... not the Manual trans.

Does anyone know the weight of the A6? So we can deduce what this trans weighs?

How about the weight of the 7 Spd Manual for comparison?
