    Didn't realize it was a new car.

    I'm guessing some flavor of Dodge Challenger then... most likely an RT with 375 horse and 410 ft/lbs?
    (And of course, a clutch pedal!!!)

    Amiright?

    Cmon. Is this a knitting forum ? Aren't you car guys ?
    this is embarrassing !!

    It isn't that hard. Not a super tricky question. Another hint:
    It isn't some off brand, kit car or 3 wheelers.

    It is something most of you can buy from a local dealer within 15 miles of where you live.

    And z28 is not readily available yet. At least you probably won't find one in stock.
