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.

Launch Control and Manual Transmission Camaro ZL1





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!

Real World Test Drive 2012 Camaro ZL1
Real World Test Drive got a first look at the new Supercar from Chevrolet: The 580 horsepower Camaro ZL1. Grant Winter takes us to the Virginia International Raceway:





RRonTV: The new Chevrolet CAMARO SS Convertible
from Wikipedia: The Camaro received a complete redesign, and new platform for the 2010 model year/fifth generation. Based on the 2006 Camaro Concept and 2007 Camaro Convertible Concept, production of the fifth-generation Camaro was approved on 10 August 2006. The Oshawa Car Assembly plant in the city of Oshawa, Ontario, Canada began producing the new Camaro which went on sale in spring of 2009 as a 2010 model year vehicle. Following the development of the Zeta architecture and because of its position as the GM global center of RWD development, GM Holden in Australia led the final design, engineering, and development of the Camaro. Production of the coupé began on March 16, 2009, in LS, LT, and SS trim levels. LS and LT models are powered by a 3.6 L (220 cu in) V6 producing 312 hp for the 2010 & 2011 model mated to either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic with manual shift. The SS is powered by the 6.2 L (376 cu in) LS3 V8 producing 426 hp (318 kW) and is paired with a 6-speed manual. The automatic SS gets the L99 V8 with 400 hp (300 kW). The RS appearance package is available on both the LT and SS and features 20-inch wheels with a darker gray tone, halo rings around xenon headlamps, a unique spoiler, and red RS or SS badges. On April 1, 2010, the Camaro was named the World Car Design of the Year at the World Car of the Year Awards. In late January 2011, the production of 2011 Camaro Convertibles started. The first going to Rick Hendrick via Barret-Jackson Car Auction. Convertibles had the same options as the coupé (engines, RS, SS, etc.). The Camaro Convertible features an aluminium brace over the engine assembly, and under the transmission. Due to the 2011 Fukushima earthquake, certain pigment colors were not available to make certain colors for both the coupé and convertible. On November 2011, the export version (excluding Japanese version) of the Camaro was introduced after a two-year delay. The delay was due to the unexpected high demand and strained production capacity. The export version included different tail lamps with integrated reverse and amber turn signal lamps, larger external rear view mirrors with integrated side turn signal repeaters, "cleaner" rear bumper appearance (without reverse light inserts), and other changes as to comply with ECE regulations. The 2012 model year marked the 45th anniversary of the Camaro and commemorated with a model available only in "Carbon Flash" paint. The V6 was updated to a 3.6 L "LFX" engine producing 323 hp (241 kW). The SS model received an upgrade to the suspension system. All models received the RS spoiler and taillight details, wheel-mounted volume and radio controls, and Bluetooth connectivity controls as standard. The 2012 ZL1 Camaro included a 6.2 L LSA supercharged V8 producing 580 hp (430 kW). The LSA motor is the same used in the Cadillac CTS-V and makes it the fastest production Camaro ever produced. Other features included 2-stage Exhaust, the addition of suede seats, steering wheel, and shift knob, as well as ZL1-exclusive 20" aluminum wheels. In 2012 Chevrolet unveiled the production of the 2013 Camaro ZL1 Convertible. On December 19, 2012 GM announced the production of the Camaro would be shifted to a plant in Michigan, citing "lower capital investment and improved production efficiencies were key factors" in the move. This move is expected to start in late 2015 or early 2016. Top Gear Camaro

2012 Chevy Camaro ZL1 Car Review with Chief Engineer Al Oppenheiser
http://www.autobytel.com/chevrolet/Camaro/2012/zl1-coupe/ Chevrolet Camaro's Chief Engineer Al Oppenheiser gives Autobytel a nice thorough review on the 2012 Chevy Camaro ZL1. This beat has 580 horsepower 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.

Ford Shelby GT500 v Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 : Street & Circuit - /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS

133072 / 2011 Chevrolet Camaro SS
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/7d9m4es With the launch of the 2012 Camaro ZL1 just around the corner, SEMA 2011 featured tons of amazing Camaros built by some of the best shops in the country. Among them was this 2011 Camaro RS/SS that took fifth gen performance to another level. Built by Source Interlink Media, parent company of Motor Trend and Automobile magazine, industry leaders such as the GM Performance Division, Lingenfelter Performance Engineering and Pedders Suspension helped make this 800hp monster a reality. Like most of our late model cars, this Camaro is absolutely dealer fresh. Covered in Summit White paint with Inferno Orange racing stripes, there isn't a dent or scratch to found on the body. From the HID headlights to the RS-exclusive quad taillights, all trim and brightwork remains exactly how it left the assembly plant. Only a small SS badge about the right taillight hints at the destructive forces under the hood. Lift the hood and you'll be greeted by the massive 7.0L LS7. This one was assembled by Thomson Engineering who is famous for cranking these engines to 11. Inside that block, an upgraded cam, forged steel crank, forged I-beam rods and forged-aluminum coated pistons form the basis of this beast. At the sides, upgraded LS9 heads are hidden under the valve covers and coil packs. Up top, a LS9 TVS positive-displacement blower with an integrated liquid-to-air charge cooler sucks air through a 90mm throttle body. Underneath this fifth gen, a Rockland Standard Gear TranZilla 6-speed rated to handle over 1200hp. Power flows from the transmission to a NASCAR style rear end packing 3.73 gears. Built around that transmission and rear end is a Nurburgring tested all-independent performance suspension that's been upgraded with the Pedders Pace Car Package. Speed sensitive power steering and massive four-wheel disc brakes ensure this car handles the twisties with ease. At the corners, 20 inch American Racing wheels look awesome wrapped in Nitto rubber. Inside the car everything is factory new with no trace of wear on any of the seats or carpets. The heated and power adjustable Inferno Orange leather seats are near perfect in every way. When combined with the cars Inferno Orange door panel coves, dash accents and stitching, they really set off an otherwise simple and dark interior. Being a top of the line car, all the cool options such as the heads up display and Boston Acoustic 9-speaker sound system are in place and functioning perfectly. Included with the sale of this car is the original owner's manual, window sticker, build proposal and a few pictures from its time at the Source Interlink SEMA booth. Limited edition cars are cool but 1 of 1 builds like this 2011 Camaro RS/SS are as good as it gets. If you've been considering adding a fifth generation Camaro to your collection, don't miss your chance to take home the best.
