    Car looks badass, except for those hideous exhaust exits.

    I agree the classic purple makes that car. It's a mystery too me why Chrysler doesn't offer these in Sublime, Top Banana and Plum Crazy. They already offered all these colors on Charger Daytonas.

    :werd2: x2. The entire rear-end I'm just not feeling.

    Car looks great otherwise. I really was excited the "570" was CID not for 5.7 though :sad2: Supercharged 570 Hemi would be fun :bowdown:

    I just don't look at a LS9 Camaro and think "well, look at those tips".
    What I think is: "this is almost same price as the ZR1, yet is probably worse is all criteria other than trunk space."

    Butterflies would :bowdown::bowdown:

    But sadly, looks like they wouldn't be operational if you look at the 'supercharger' pic. http://www.smslimitedusa.com/570.html

    going to resurrect this thread, after going to the SMS show today in Corona.

    I saw the butterflies in action, and they're pretty cool. they need to be bigger though.
