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 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.
