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

Chevrolet Camaro ZL1
Another amazing machine that I saw at the May 2012 Caffeine and Octane car
show was this brand new Camaro ZL1. The video shows the
car crawling through the show parking lot and in detail sitting still.
What do you think of this
2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Track Test Drive & Muscle Car Video Review
Autobytel Road Test Editor T.J. Keon recently had the chance to test drive
the all new 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 on the street as well
as on the track at Virginia International Raceway. The Camaro ZL1 sports a supercharged
V-8 engine that makes 580 horsepower. Base price for
the ZL1 is $54,095.
On the road the Camaro
ZL1 feels firm and planted, but the ride is not rough or harsh. In fact the
2012 Chevy Camaro ZL1
could make for a great daily driver. The Alcantara lined seats and steering
wheel feel great and are usually reserved for high end luxury cars. But
make no mistake; the ZL1 was designed to kick-butt!
One of the things that make the ZL1 special is the optional 20-inch
lightweight track wheel. These black 10-spoke rims are made from forged
aluminum for strength. The rims are wrapped in Goodyear Eagle F1 Generation
2 tires sized P285/35ZR20 up front and P305/35ZR20 out back. A huge Brembo
Brake package sits behind these sinister rims. Suspension chores are
handled by the Magnetic Ride Control System. The shocks are filled with a
magnetorheological fluid and the dampening levels are computer controlled
and adjusted up to 1000 per second. This makes for a comfortable ride on
the road and a more than capable ride on the track.
The 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is powered by a
Supercharged Corvette engine dubbed the LSA. The 6.2 liter V-8 engine packs
an Eaton Supercharger on top. Power
output is 580 horsepower and 556 lb-ft. of
torque. The Supercharger provides plenty
of torque at any RPM level so that the power is there whenever you want it!
You can choose between a Hydra-Matic 6-Speed Automatic Transmission
w/TAPSHIFT or Tremec 6-speed manual transmission.
The Camaro ZL1 can run
from 0-60 MPH in 4.0 seconds and can eclipse the ¼ mile in 12.0 seconds.
Top speed for the ZL1 is 180 MPH. Fuel economy is 14 MPG in the city and 19
MPG on the highway if you are wondering. On the road the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 pulls hard from
any RPM thanks to the flat torque curve provided by the Supercharger. Practically every part on the Camaro ZL1 was designed to
aid this Muscle Car in going fast. At just $54,095 the ZL1 can't be beat
when you are talking high performance for the money. The 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 sports the
amount of technology and horsepower you would expect
to find on a car costing 4 times at much.

2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 with Launch Control
While attending a press preview of the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 at Virginia
International Raceway, Vehix's Contributing Editor, Thom Blackett, grabbed
this short clip demonstrating the car's launch control feature.
The idea is to maximize off-the-line grip, something that can go up in
smoke with a 580-horsepower muscle car. To
activate the system, tap the traction control button (located forward of
the gear shift) twice. At that point, plant the throttle and the engine rpm
will be limited to about 4,000 (varies slightly depending on weather
conditions). Drop the clutch, and you're off.
Even under wet conditions, the 580-hp ZL1 was able to hook up and get
moving, rather than sit and spin the rear rubber. And, thanks to a driver
who had a little trouble activating the launch control system, we get to
hear the supercharged 6.2-liter V8 sing at nearly full throttle.
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.
