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

2012 ZL1 Camaro
Introduced at the Chicago Auto Show the brand-spanking new Camaro ZL1 is the most powerful
Camaro ever. Powered by
a LSA 6.2L supercharged V-8 engine that provides 580 horsepowerl.
"Camaro ZL1 is about
high-tech performance and design, and is a type of car no one has ever
brought to this segment previously," said Rick Scheidt, vice president of
Chevrolet marketing. "It's the most technically advanced Camaro ever, so we've chosen a
name from the most elite and exclusive Camaro in history."
The Chevrolet Camaro
ZL1 has some exclusive body panels to distinguish from the rest of the
brood. A new front fascia, hood with air extractors, and a signature center
section constructed of carbon fiber rendered in satin black finish. Topping
it all off is a set of 20-inch wheels and Exhaust tips with ZL1 badge on the grille, hood,
and brake calipers.
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.

2012 Chevy Camaro ZL1 Car Review with Chief Engineer Al Oppenheiser
Camaro's Chief Engineer
Al Oppenheiser gives Autobytel a nice thorough review on the 2012 Chevy Camaro ZL1. This beat has
lurking under the hood. 0-60 MPH flies by in 3.9 seconds with the automatic
transmission. This is going to be the ultimate Camaro. Chevy has never produced
a Camaro with level of
performance and technology built in.
It is not very often that you see high performance sports cars equipped
with an automatic transmission. But in terms of shifting an automatic will
always be quicker than a manual. The Hydra-Matic 6L90 automatic
transmission does feature steering wheel mounted paddle shifters.
The Magnetic Ride Control System on the Chevy Camaro ZL1 is the first can on
the market with the latest and greatest generation of this technology. The
shocks have metallic particles in the shock fluid itself. When the shocks
sense movement they move the magnetic particles into a field that instantly
dampens the suspension. If you are driving 60 MPH in the 2012 Chevy Camaro ZL1 the Magnetic Ride
Control System is making adjustments every inch. What this means is that
you can have a very comfortable and stable ride on regular roads and a
stiffer ride at the track.
What's different on the ZL1 body compared to the regular SS is the larger
lower grille. This was designed in the wind tunnel to take air in and cool
the engine. The air is then channeled out the hood extractor to prevent
lift and make down force.
The Camaro ZL1 is an
easy car to drive. You would think that a 580 horsepower vehicle would be
a handful. The manual clutch is very smooth and the automatic transmission
is a real joy. The ZL1 is a great car to drive around town in. The Chevy Camaro ZL1 has a base
price of $54,095. Nothing on the Camaro ZL1 was compromised in
terms of performance. Gas Mileage is not that great but you buy this
vehicle for its performance and not its fuel economy.
