    Re: New '09 V Shots

    A supercharger only costs GM about 4K (since they probably get a massive discount).
    All they need is a CR adjustment to the pistons or heads of engines they already have.
    I think the misunderstanding is that people think we will get the same engine as Blue-Devil/SS/Z07.
    Perhaps the V engine will have similarities but clearly will not be the same internally or in rated HP.

    We can blame the Slush-Box wanting babies for that.
    We had out chance to show GM we are hard core performance junkies but failed.

    Half of you guys are crying about rear tires wearing out too soon on your 400HP Hot Rod Sedan.

    Do you really think you deserve to be given a 600HP car?

    Re: New '09 V Shots

    We all crapped our pants over the 505hp Z06 just over a year ago- now people are whining about the possibility of the V having "only" 525hp??

    News flash: Over 500hp is extremely rare and stupid fast. To get 600hp out of a Viper, Dodge had to put an 8.4L V10 in the thing, and that sells for $85k (with no nav, no back seat, no Onstar, XM, etc, etc....)

    You'd have to be crazy to think GM is dumb enough to price themselves out of the market by getting into a HP pissing contest with the Germans. This car will be benchmarked against the performance of its rivals, not the dyno results.

    It'll happen (the 500hp one). The only reason the STS-V is so expensive is that the Northstar costs twice as much to make as a pushrod V8.

    I'm making this a habit about every three posts on the subject so I can say "I told you so" in a few months:

    Just over 500hp, awesome interior, solid launch ability and under $60k

    Re: New '09 V Shots

    I finally got my Motor Trend in the mail yeaterday. The picture was a beauty. I personally don't see how they can mess this one up. They are taking a hit already, and making it better, turning it into a home run. No matter what the new ones will have some sort of V8, super charger or not, it should better then 500 hp. Worry about traction before you go higher. If you want a drag car, get a specific drag car. you can't catch this in the twisties.

    I meant it won't be under 55k like some people are speculating. All I know is that I've actually sat in one, while my brother and other friends have driven them.

    He's been in V's, and he can't tell us anything. People lose their jobs over stuff like this, unfortunately.

    I can see it now:
    09 V = 525 hp
    10 M5=600 hp
    12 V = 650 hp
    13 M5 = 750 hp
    15 V = 800 hp
    etc etc etc

    My point exactly- Everyone needs to stop worrying about who has the better dyno queen. The car will be succeed or fail based on handling, acceleration, refinement and durability (emphasis on the latter), not peak HP numbers.

    Go ask WildWhl if he cares that a Corvette makes more power than his Exige.

    Power/weight ratio and gearing > Horsepower

    Just so I am on record with this, I'll quote Tony again. I totally agree with this statement. Just over 500 hp, awesome interior, solid launch ability and under $ 60k.
