Introduced at the Chicago Auto Show the brand-spanking new Camaro ZL1 is the most powerful Camaro ever. Powered by a LSA 6.2L supercharged V-8 engine that provides 580 horsepowerl.
"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. A new front fascia, hood with air extractors, and a signature center section constructed of carbon fiber rendered in satin black finish. Topping it all off is a set of 20-inch wheels and Exhaust tips with ZL1 badge on the grille, hood, and brake calipers.
2012 Chevy Camaro ZL1 Car Review with Chief Engineer Al Oppenheiser
Camaro's Chief Engineer
Al Oppenheiser gives Autobytel a nice thorough review on the 2012 Chevy Camaro ZL1. This beat has
lurking under the hood. 0-60 MPH flies by in 3.9 seconds with the automatic
transmission. This is going to be the ultimate Camaro. Chevy has never produced
a Camaro with level of
performance and technology built in.
It is not very often that you see high performance sports cars equipped
with an automatic transmission. But in terms of shifting an automatic will
always be quicker than a manual. The Hydra-Matic 6L90 automatic
transmission does feature steering wheel mounted paddle shifters.
The Magnetic Ride Control System on the Chevy Camaro ZL1 is the first can on
the market with the latest and greatest generation of this technology. The
shocks have metallic particles in the shock fluid itself. When the shocks
sense movement they move the magnetic particles into a field that instantly
dampens the suspension. If you are driving 60 MPH in the 2012 Chevy Camaro ZL1 the Magnetic Ride
Control System is making adjustments every inch. What this means is that
you can have a very comfortable and stable ride on regular roads and a
stiffer ride at the track.
What's different on the ZL1 body compared to the regular SS is the larger
lower grille. This was designed in the wind tunnel to take air in and cool
the engine. The air is then channeled out the hood extractor to prevent
lift and make down force.
The Camaro ZL1 is an
easy car to drive. You would think that a 580 horsepower vehicle would be
a handful. The manual clutch is very smooth and the automatic transmission
is a real joy. The ZL1 is a great car to drive around town in. The Chevy Camaro ZL1 has a base
price of $54,095. Nothing on the Camaro ZL1 was compromised in
terms of performance. Gas Mileage is not that great but you buy this
vehicle for its performance and not its fuel economy.

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.
Lingenfelter Camaro ZL1 Tops 200 MPH! - Hot Rod Unlimited Episode 7
On this episode of HOT ROD Unlimited, HOT ROD Editor In Chief David
Freiburger drives the Lingenfelter Performance Engineering Camaro ZL1 to 202 mph, making it
the first 2012 ZL1 to exceed 200 mph. This very same ZL1 in the exact same
configuration (save for wheels and tires and the rollcage) was also the
first to run 10s in the quarter mile.
The ZL1 Camaros were
first delivered to the public in early April, making
580 hp from their supercharged, 6.2L, LSA engines. Within days of delivery,
Lingenfelter had its ZL1 making 720 hp at 6,500 rpm and 650 lb-ft at 4,650
rpm, both measured at the rear tires. The performance parts are all from
Lingenfelter: CNC-ported cylinder heads, a GT9 camshaft, a ported
Supercharger cover, overdrive blower
pulleys, a cold-air kit, 63-lb/hr fuel
injectors, a voltage Booster for the
fuel pump, a 160-degree thermostat, and
tuning. The entire package, installed, is $11,495. Everything else on this
manual-trans car is stock. The performance testing was done with 109-octane
VP fuel and 15 psi Boost.
On April 18, 2012, the Lingenfelter ZL1 ran 10.79 at 134.36 mph at Muncie
Dragway in Indiana. That was on drag wheels and tires.
On April 30, 2012, the car was delivered to the Continental Tire Proving
Grounds in Uvalde, Texas. Shod with Continental Extreme Contact tires on
the original ZL1 wheels, the Camaro was tested on the
8-1/2-mile oval. The
three-lane surface is like a road rather than a race track, the turns are
not banked, and there are a few elevation changes. During the top-speed
Freiburger pulled 0.4 to 0.5 g at 190-plus mph in the sweeping turns, then
held it down for nearly 40 seconds on the pull from 190 to 202.67 mph
lifting to avoid cresting a small hill at corner entry at 200-plus mph. The
car had not reached terminal velocity. Conditions included a
ambient temperatures in the 90s, and a density altitude of 3,280 feet. The
aerodynamically stock except for some tape over the front
brake-duct openings in an attempt to channel more air through the stock
air-to-water Intercooler, as
the water was reaching temps in the 250s during
prolonged periods of WOT, leading to hot inlet air and reduced power.
Naturally, the comments here will lead to the upcoming ¹13 Ford Mustang
GT500, with claims of 200 mph capability in bone stock trim. A stock Camaro
ZL1 will run 185 mph. Will the GT500 be faster than the Lingenfelter ZL1?
Until someone shows up at the same track on the same day with both cars and
a single driver, no one will know. Meanwhile, we present the first ZL1 to
eclipse the double century mark. See more at Lingenfelter.com and
