Camaro ZL1, the greatest Camaro ever?
The ZL1 Camaro has a great chance to be the best Camaro of all time. Chevrolet is working tirelessly to be sure they are releasing a great Camaro. In fact the video below shows how they are doing this with their 24-hour track test of the ZL1. It would appear they are trying to prove to some people that they can make an awesome car besides the Corvette. The pictures don’t lie, the car looks amazing, but is this what it will really look like when it comes out? We’ll find out together. TheDailyDrivers.com will get a personal look as soon as one shows up at a dealership. In the meantime, check out the specs, pictures, and video of the ZL1 Camaro.
Some of the unbelievable specs listed for the Camaro ZL1 by Chevrolet.com are as follows:
6.2L SUPERCHARGED V8 ENGINE
Intercooled Eaton supercharger. All-aluminum V8 has 580 horsepower and 556 lb.-ft. of torque. Blinding acceleration, top-end performance and proven reliability coexist happily under the hood.
6-SPEED MANUAL TRANSMISSION WITH SHORT-THROW SHIFTER
On the track, lap after lap, shifting is an instinct – an extension of your consciousness. ZL1’s short-throw 6-speed gearbox offers an unfiltered connection to the heart of the machine.
BREMBO BRAKES, SIX-PISTON FRONT, FOUR-PISTON REAR
ZL1’s two-piece rotors are the largest yet fitted to a gen5 Camaro. Six-piston calipers in front and four-pistons at the rear secure the discs for excellent braking performance.
TRACK-TUNED SUSPENSION WITH MAGNETIC RIDE
Sensors calculate pitch, roll, squat, dive and yaw, instantly adjusting the suspension’s magnetic fluid to form the ideal damping pressure.
ZL1 monitors your driving style and automatically adjusts between two exhaust modes. At higher speeds, exhaust is routed through a less-restrictive path, increasing horsepower. At lower speeds, exhaust remains fully baffled for quieter operation and mellower street driving. All without having to turn a single wrench.
ALUMINUM HOOD WITH CARBON FIBER AIR EXTRACTOR
To fully appreciate ZL1, you need a road course, the twistier the better. A track where its use of lightweight materials – aluminum hood with carbon fiber inserts – and downforce-inducing aerodynamics help Camaro ZL1 wring the full effects from its 6.2L supercharged V8.
