Launch Control and Manual Transmission Camaro ZL1





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.

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.

ZR1 & ZL1 Launch Control & NO LIFT Shift - How To & RACE
How to & Demo of GM's Launch Control & No Lift Shift in a ZR1 Corvette and the ZL1 Camaro. We tested out the capabilities of the GM launch control & no lift shift on a modded ZR1 (15lbs pullies & full Exhaust) and a stock ZL1 Camaro a while back and wanted to show you how it performed. In the end, the launch control was fairly useless on the ZR1 because it needs some better tires for the power it has, but the no lift shift was a blast, especially when it came to the sound! We hadn't seen a how-to video that explained it that well, so we decided to make our own! Enjoy!

Ariel Atom w/ Supercharger (400+ bhp) Launch control + afterburn !! - 1080p HD
During the Grand Prix of Middelharnis I have recorded this amazing Ariel Atom. It is based on a normal Ariel Atom, but this one is fitted with a Rotrex Supercharger. The engine is coming from a Honda 2.0L Type R. This gives the Ariel Atom more then 400 bhp! As you can see in this video, the Exhaust sound is more louder and it even gives the car an afterburn.
