Could you imagine a 4 with a LT4? I agree, I would have bought one. I'm tempted to buy a 4 in addition to my (whenever) 5. Not sure I can get that past the war department thoughI bought the 5 because I really love the torque of the LT4 and it is so much fun on the street to just dip your toe in at any RPM and car surges forward like you lit the afterburners. In fact, I'd think the opposite and if your goal is a track car the lighter and smaller 4 is probably more fun - even if it's not as fast. I wish I could have one of each.
If they made a 4 with the LT4 I'd have bought that for sure
This video really highlighted something i've struggled with. I can afford either the CT4 or 5 Blackwing, but i have a hard time justifying the extra increase in price for the 5.
I think we can all agree that 5 is an absolute demon of pure entertainment on the track, but for daily life on the road? You never get to use that power for longer than two or three seconds before you are above legal speeds. The engine sounds so, so, sweet though. On the other hand, as Jason describes in the video, the 4 is much more nimble, tossable into the corners, you have more fun running through the gears; it's just more enjoyable for street driving.
I wont argue with him that a NA V8 would be absolutely amazing, but the TT V6 is what we get. In Jason's opinion, the engine and power train are what makes the 5 an icon despite the 4 being the better street car. Do you guys think the TTV6 is really that much worse than a V8? Does the occasional track day with a 5 really tip the scales so much? I dont think I could afford tires at the rate JC smoked them....
