    Cranks out more HP than any other production V8.

    Hahahahahaha. Please tell me that article is a spoof. If not, MSM has started writing automotive journalism. That is fake all day long.

    Yeah..I think they forgot about the Hellcat Redeye or the Demon. They maybe splitting hairs a bit and since no other 2020 models have come out with numbers (that I know of) trying to get the jump on stating that as fact. Who knows!

    Straight copy and paste:

    "That means this supercharged 5.2-liter V-8 cranks out more horsepower and torque per liter than any other production V-8."

    The Redeye and Demon have more liters. well an extra Liter.

    Unless that is SAE HP, the real number could be higher.

    Happy with the horsepower but concerned about the torque. It’s less than the ZL1 Camaro, Hellcat and even the 13-14 GT500. The rumors the DCT is already at its limit might be true...

    100 extra HP (a little more weight) and a DCT transmission only netting mid-3s to 60 mph has me thinking this car will benefit tremendously from a set of DragRadials/slicks.

    Stock for stock, I would not bet on that. Your talking a 5 hp difference and 90 ft lbs of torque difference. Not to mention the ZR1 is way more aero dynamic and definitetly will weigh less than the GT500. Carbon ceramic brakes vs steel rotors means around the track you begin to experience brake fade whereas the ZR1 will not. It will be a great car, but the ZR1 is on a whole other level and not even in the same class.
