Here is the most powerful Camaro ever produced in series. Named ZL1, this fireball of 580 horses is a snub to Ford. After all, the Shelby GT500, $ 999 more expensive and produces 30 horsepower less, must now be content with second place!
In this race for power that pits the three U.S. manufacturers of Muscle Car, a new peak has been reached. After all, this car, we tested the circuit on Virginia International Raceway (VIR), United States, is approaching the magic number of 600 horsepower and can do a 0-100 in 4 seconds and dust - 0 -96 km / h in 3.9 seconds to be precise. Demented figures that evoke the Corvette ZR1. So that strategists say Chevrolet now that only they offer, not one but two high performance cars the most powerful and affordable!
The other is the Corvette ZR1, which can accelerate from 0 to 96 km / h in 3.5 seconds with its 638 horsepower V8. But its base price exceeds $ 100 000. But it's a safe bet that the Camaro ZL1 will tickle many buyers with its price tag of $ 58 000 in Canada. Collectors, first, who will want to get hold of a copy of the Camaro the most powerful in history, and try their luck in speculating. Of "tattooed Camaro", too, who want to exploit the virtues of the ZL1 on track, as it was designed among others for this. There will also probably a few players. You know, those motorists who buy a car for show ...
After all, the ZL1 is designed to track. A bit like the Honda S2000, it can be used the week to transport you to work, then the weekend came, we take the direction of the circuits for the adventure of the competition.
It is in this spirit that has provided the panels covering most of the front of the underside of the car, along with a carbon fiber hood with a bulge and openings favoring the displacement of and air cooling. Even the small trunk spoiler, discreet while it contributes to the performance of this car on a track by increasing downforce - high speed, it goes without saying.
Added to this a differential cooler, a built-in cooler for engine oil and gearbox lubricant and cooling ducts for the brakes, all standard equipment for the ZL1.
And that's not to mention the suspension, which offers a nice balance of firmness and ride comfort (it is all relative), as to make driving this car enjoyable even in the real world. The electric power steering offers, moreover, a variable level of assistance that is surprisingly well balanced. As for the brakes, they seem tireless! Ready for the track, the ZL1? This is no doubt.
The Camaro ZL1 comes with contoured seats in leather with suede microfibre inserts. Both front seats are heated and have power adjustments. The Boston Acoustics audio system has nine speakers, a USB plug and Bluetooth connectivity.
The instrument panel retains its appearance and banal attempt to minimize the impact of rearward visibility very limited, which tare this big car, it was equipped with an ultrasonic rear parking assist and a rearview camera whose image appears in the rearview mirror.
In memory of another ZL1 ...
The word reminds one variant ZL1 Camaro 1969, which was manufactured at a snail for its approval to an NHRA championship. Intended for road use, this model received the engine used by Chaparral Can-Am: a V8 all-aluminum 7.0-liter (427 cubic inches) called ZL1.
Officially, this engine produced 430 horsepower. In reality, he was producing in excess of 500 and propelled the Camaro from 0 to 100 km / h in about 5.3 seconds. Not more than 69 Camaro ZL1 were manufactured that year, which makes collectibles today.
Nobody dares Chevrolet ZL1 say how 2012 will be made. It will surely be more than 69 copies, however, because he is not talking to a small set for a probate matter. "She has cataloged like other variants," George told us Saratlic, spokesman for GM Canada. "So we will follow the request and we will produce what buyers are asking for."
In 2011, Canadians bought just over 10,000 muscle car - the Camaro, Mustang and Challenger. But it is the Mustang that has dominated sales with 42% market share. She was followed by the Camaro, with 35% of the pie, and Challenger, which were the remaining 23% share. In the U.S., the Camaro has dominated sales. However, it is interesting that the only muscle car to be produced here is not the favorite of Canadians. The arrival of the ZL1 will perhaps help change this situation.
Vintage 2012, the coupe Camaro ZL1 will be available from spring, while the convertible, which will be vintage 2013 will debut at dealerships this summer.

2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Track Test Drive & Muscle Car Video Review
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 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.

Subaru STi vs Camaro ZL1 Nürburgring
Why? Because Racecar.
I am a fan of performance cars import or domestic, so when I saw the ZL1 I
thought it would be a fun car. Sure it costs more than my STi, and looks
scarier to drive at the limit. This video shows how the STi with only 305hp
SAE, corners faster but lower high
speed acceleration than the ZL1 with its 580hp.
