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.

Best GTR launch control reaction ever
Courage is strong in this beautiful GTR Pilot! She took the directions given to her and just rolled with it! I love the part where the fear takes over body control, which makes it hard for her to think straight to let off the gas to make it stop. Hahahahaha This is by far the best GTR Reaction I have ever seen with for GTR Launch control.





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.
