Hmm, I was under the impression all the models were getting the leather IP. Either way, it looks great... You guys are going to drool.

Order me up a droptop in Elctra Blue with the nav and Z51 pack and a 6spd. automatic please. I wouldn't mind having a Z06 either but uh seriuosly 430hp is nothing to complain about at all. Sounds pretty bad a$$ to me that is 25hp than the 2004 Z06 had! And 55hp than 2001 Z06 had... Hmmm let the hp war begin!

Anybody have details on the LS3? HP/TQ? torque curve?

Horsepower and Torque still say TBD.

"Enhanced armrest padding."

This greatly interests me. GM's biggest problem with their door panels and armrests is that they are all hard plastic. Their armrests suck compared to just about every single other automaker out there and in fact, is one of my biggest interior complaints about GM.

Everytime I drive in my Intrigue, my elbow starts hurting after five minutes. The last time I saw a real armrest in a GM vehicle was in my previous car--a 1986 Pontiac Parisienne.

0-60 quoted at 4.3 seconds and a new top speed of 190mph with the new gearing, truly spectacular!!
