After considerable delays, finally got the Ascot Green Stinger GT1 today. Was wondering if the car even existed.

Don't have a great idea of the color, it was overcast the entire day but am certain I will like it.

Paperwork took FOREVER.

New sales manager, old one was, I'm told, fired. New one stuck by previous agreements, sold at MSRP.

Drove home in awful traffic. The car replaced a Chevy SS that some wrong way, uninsured driver destroyed.

Comparing Car & Driver's road tests, the Stinger might have been a bit faster.

Uh, no, I don't think so. Turbo lag? Nonexistent. I'm of the impression that this car would beat the SS badly. Instantateous throttle response. Abiding by the owner's manual break in and never used more than a third of throttle and highest I ever got was about 3700-3800rpm once. I am VERY, VERY impressed. Don

Congratulations on your new car I'm very jealous you've got the Ascot Green, I'm sure you'll love it.
Just traded in my MY18 Stinger for a MY21 Limited Edition Stinger which should have been the Ascot Green but unfortunately NZ got black instead.
It took 10 months from ordering to arrival, it has a Suede package and a Blackout package which does look pretty good.

Hi smillie, your suede seats are handsome! Don
Thanks DonD we'll see how durability compares with the all leather seats but at least they won't be freezing cold or roasting hot when you sit on them.

You are putting down all the torque at low RPMs, it will definitely feel faster initially than a NA V8 like the SS. It's only when you start getting to faster speeds that the SS would be pulling away, where it can stretch that 400hp and tq out. Those speeds are generally pretty illegal, so you can usually be pretty comfortable that you'll be pretty dang quick everywhere. This is also why GMs 3.8L V6 is such a turd compared to the turbo 4 that went in the base ATS, the V6 has to rev sky-high to make it's torque, a decent 4cyl turbo is much better most of the time due to the better use of torque in the rev range.
