Camaro ZL1 Delivers 580 Horsepower and Exclusive Technologies
The 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1's supercharged 6.2L engine is SAE-rated at 580 horsepower (432 kW) and 556 lb.-ft. of torque (754 Nm) -- making it the most-powerful production Camaro ever. The ZL1's outstanding power is complemented by advanced powertrain and chassis technologies, including exclusive Performance Traction Management and third-generation Magnetic Ride Control. "The Camaro ZL1 delivers supercar performance and technology in the sports-car segment," said Al Oppenheiser, Camaro chief engineer. "For sheer power, the ZL1 delivers more horsepower than a Ferrari 458, more torque than an Aston Martin DB9 V12, and a better power-to-weight ratio than a Porsche 911 Carrera GTS. "The Camaro ZL1 also features exclusive chassis and traction technologies," Oppenheiser said, "to offer the best of all worlds -- including balanced handling for the track, acceleration for a drag strip, and the comfort of a daily driver." The most-powerful production Camaro ever The 2012 Camaro ZL1's surpasses the advertised power of the legendary 1969 Camaro ZL1's 427 cubic-inch big block by more than 150 horsepower (112 kW) -- while meeting modern emissions requirements. And, the new ZL1 is backed by General Motors' five-year / 100,000-mile powertrain warranty. "The torque is going to make the ZL1 a car you won't want to get out of," said John Rydzewski, assistant chief engineer for small block engines. "Not only will the ZL1 have more power and torque than the competition, we're making it available with an optional automatic transmission, to appeal to a wider group of sports car enthusiasts." The all-aluminum LSA supercharged V-8 is part of GM's legendary small-block engine family. For a solid foundation, the engine's lower end uses six-bolt main bearing caps that clamp and lock in the forged steel crankshaft to the deep-skirt block. Its 1.9L Roots-style blower uses an efficient four-lob rotor set and compact Intercooler to deliver Boosted air into the high-flow cylinder heads. For the Camaro ZL1, the LSA features a unique induction system, with a lower-restriction air filter, dual inlet paths, and improved airflow through the Supercharger housing. Other changes include a higher-efficiency Supercharger Intercooler and electric power steering system, which consumes less engine power than hydraulic-steering systems. The ZL1 will be offered with either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. The Tremec TR-6060 "MG9" manual features 30 percent more torque capacity than in the Camaro SS. The higher torque capacity results from a strengthened output shaft, high-strength rear housing, and additional roller bearing. The MG9 has also been tuned for improved shift feel, with a dual-mass flywheel, twin-disc clutch, and triple synchros for smooth, precise shifts.





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 run, 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 before lifting to avoid cresting a small hill at corner entry at 200-plus mph. The car had not reached terminal velocity. Conditions included a head/crosswind, ambient temperatures in the 90s, and a density altitude of 3,280 feet. The Camaro was 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 HotRod.com.

132320 / 1969 Chevy Camaro ZL1
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/6t64xop It's hard to know where to start with a car of this caliber, so perhaps it's best to get the big stuff out of the way first: this nearly flawless 1969 Camaro carries a correct, authentic, original ZL1 aluminum 427 engine: #62 out of 69 built, to be exact. With only three of the 69 original ZL1 Camaros built still carrying their matching-numbers powertrains, they are exceedingly rare today and are perhaps the Holy Grail of muscle cars. This one is a mirror image of ZL1 #62, the only red-on-red ZL1 produced, and has been restored to exceptional, highly-accurate standards and is already a national prize winning piece. So you may be thinking that it's just a tribute with a correct ZL1 engine, but I think that does a disservice to this car. The engine installed in this car is a real 1969 Camaro ZL1 that has been authenticated by Jerry MacNeish as the real deal. What defines a "real" ZL1, the engine or the body? No, this one isn't a 100% matching numbers ZL1, but it's not simply a clone, either. When this ZL1 Camaro engine was discovered, it was a no-brainer to build an exact replica of the car around it. And with that, we're at the crux of this car's existence: does the body or the engine make it a real ZL1? Would a real ZL1 body shell with a replacement iron 427 still be a ZL1 Camaro? As a duplicate of #62, it is correct Garnet Red, and the finish is gorgeous. It's obvious that no corners were cut and that someone spent the long dollar to make this car show-quality in every way. Panel gaps are exact, alignment is near perfect, and the finish has been color sanded and buffed beyond any factory efforts in 1969. All COPOs received the cowl induction hood and most got the ducktail spoiler as well, since they all started off as SS396 cars. Chrome and trim is concours quality, the glass is all new and date code correct, and all the stainless has been polished. The COPOs, ZL1s included, received no special badges beyond the simple Camaro on the fenders, making them perhaps the ultimate factory-built sleepers. The engine under the hood is unquestionably a correct all-aluminum ZL1 V8, thanks to a verification by noted Camaro expert Jerry MacNeish. The ZL1 was similar to the mighty L88, which featured aluminum heads and an iron block, and both engines shared the same 430 horsepower rating from the factory. However, the aluminum block, which was developed for Can-Am racing, was a first for a Chevy production engine, and a fully assembled ZL1 weighed around 500 pounds—about as much as a small block 327. The truth of the matter is that the ZL1 actually made more than 500 horsepower in street trim, and with littler more than a pair of slicks, these were legitimate 11-second cars. Best of all, they were street legal with a warranty! The engine bay is beautifully detailed and correct in every way. At first glance, it looks just like any L88 COPO, but then you notice the block isn't Chevy Orange. Detailing is exemplary, with correct stamps, markings, and decals throughout. And, of course, the easy stuff like the hoses, clamps, and wiring harness are accurate reproduction pieces. You'll also find that this car still carries a fully functional AIR injection smog pump—good luck finding one of those today. Although you could get a ZL1 with an automatic, a majority, including #62, were equipped with a rugged Muncie 4-speed manual and the strongest rear end GM made—the legendary 12-bolt, which was stuffed with 4.10 gears and a Posi. Chambered Exhaust was standard, and while it was aggressive, it was also light. Front disc brakes and a heavy-duty F41 suspension were standard equipment with the ZL1. It rides on COPO-spec 14-inch steel wheels with dog dish hubcaps and a set of G70-14 Goodyear Polyglas tires. The bright red interior is also correct and is in outstanding condition. As I mentioned, there are a few extra options, including a console with auxiliary gauges, which looks appropriate between the restored red buckets. A standard steering wheel was what you got when you ordered a COPO, and this one is in fine condition. Every component in the dash, including the gauges, ventilation controls, and AM radio has been rebuilt and remains fully functional. The trunk features a new mat and matching spare on a steel wheel. I leave it to you to decide what this car really is. It has already won awards at the highest levels, including a gold award from Super Chevy and an AACA National First Prize, so there's no question that it's accurately restored. The foremost expert in the field has verified the engine, and it exactly duplicates an original ZL1 Camaro's specifications in every way. So you can choose to look at it as a nicely done tribute car with a $100,000 engine, or as a rebuilt ZL1 with a $500,000 discount. Either way, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a ZL1 you can actually drive and enjoy. Call now!

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.
