"Camaro ZL1 is about high-tech performance and design, and is a type of car no one has ever brought to this segment previously," said Rick Scheidt, vice president of Chevrolet marketing. "It's the most technically advanced Camaro ever, so we've chosen a name from the most elite and exclusive Camaro in history."
The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 has some exclusive body panels to distinguish from the rest of the brood.

2012 Chevy Camaro ZL1 Drive & Review: The Fastest Daily Driver Ever
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Camaro ZL1 is the fastest and
most powerful production Camaro ever built by Chevrolet.
But you probably already knew that. What you might not know is that this
almost 600 horsepower car is really a
pussy cat to drive. In fact if it got better gas mileage you could easily
use it as a daily commuter. It is that easy and relaxed to drive even
though under the hood is the supercharged beating heart out of the Cadillac
CTS-V. In this review we get to know the fastest production Camaro that GM has ever built by
spending a week with it and using it as a daily driver.
2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Walk Around with GM's Performance Design Director
http://www.autobytel.com/chevrolet/Camaro/2012/zl1-coupe/ Tom Peters
who is the Director for Performance Vehicles at GM was gracious enough to
give Autobytel a thorough performance walk around describing the design and
performance details on the new 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 coupe.
First of all you will note the larger opening in the bumper for increased
cooling capacity. The front splitter is the same height as the one found on
the Corvette ZR-1. All the details on the front of the Camaro ZL1 were developed and
tested in the wind tunnel. The air in the front is not only diverted to
cool the radiator but also the front brakes. The hood vent is functional
and directs air out the top which aids in preventing lift and creating down
force which is important for high speed stability. The hood vents adds a
unique character to the front of the car. It also communicates a very
serious performance oriented message in a beautifully integrated way.
Along the side of the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 you will notice the
rocker panels which are called rocker splitters. These side panels help
contribute by adding down force and reducing lift. On thing you should
notice is that the fenders bulge in order to fit larger width tires. The
front tires measure 285 in width with the rear tires measuring 305 in the
rear. This provides a huge contact patch for the 580 horsepower the engine
creates. Behind the light weight rims are huge Brembo brakes.
At the rear of the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 you will notice the
rear spoiler. This wing has been modified and optimized to even out the
amount of rear down force on the front of the vehicle. The rear diffuser
also adds a bit of down force and helps move any trapped air out from under
the ZL1. Another neat detail on the Camaro ZL1 are the twin dual Exhaust pipes. Learned through the
development of the Corvette ZR-1; the Exhaust has a value to optimize backpressure
during normal operation. But during wide-open throttle they open up to
increase performance and give the car a menacing growl which adds to the
overall character of the vehicle.
On the inside of the car there are many performance details too! The
steering wheel is based on a racing configuration and features a flat
bottom. The wheel is wrapped in ultra-luxurious Alcantara Leather. The
seats also feature Alcantara inserts as well as the shift knob. There was
an incredible amount of attention and time paid to the ergonomics of the
shift knob and steering wheel. The heads-up display and G-Force meter give
the driver the performance information he needs. The 200 MPH speedometer
reminds the driver that the 2012 Chevy Camaro ZL1 is one very serious
performance sports car.
The ZL1 is an outstanding car that exudes confidence both on and off the
track. The performance capabilities of this car have been well integrated
and the Camaro's beauty
really shines through. All these performance upgrades all to the overall
character of the Camaro
ZL1. This vehicle is a great car to drive and experience.
