Chevy Camaro ZL1 Unveiled
If you can get past the stellar good looks, the new Chevy Camaro ZL1 is an all-around racing beast that will go on sale in late 2016. Chevrolet fixed up this Camaro with a supercharged 6.2L V8 small block engine that produces an estimated 640 hp and 640 lb. ft. of torque. A 6-speed manual tranny comes standard, and a 10-speed paddle shift automatic is optional.
Chevrolet refined every detail of the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 for performance. A lower opening grille offers grater airflow, a heat extractor pulls hot air from the engine compartment, it weighs 200lbs less than its predecessor, and those are just a few of the many features that make the ZL1 a racing force to be reckoned with. See this Camaro in action in the video below, or read Chevy’s latest press release about the Camaro ZL1.
