2013 Chevy Corvette v Camaro ZL1 v Porsche Cayenne S Mile Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The new 2013 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport and
the crazy fast Camaro
ZL1 are two of the fastest American made cars that you can buy today. In
fact many would say that these two cars represent the very best in American
sports performance and modern muscle. So why would we mash them up in a
0-60 MPH performance test and review at a mile above sea level with a new
Porsche Cayenne S crossover and perhaps more importantly which of these
cars is after. You'll have to watch this video to find out.

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.

Chevrolet Cruze — глобальный проект General Motors,
созданный под руководством Тевана Кима,
пришёл на смену не связанных между собой
Chevrolet Cobalt и Chevrolet Lacetti. В основу автомобиля
легла новая глобальная платформа Delta II,
на которой построен Opel Astra J. Впервые
представленный в 2008 году для рынка Южной
Кореи как Daewoo Lacetti Premiere, он заменил собой
одноимённый автомобиль, продаваемый с 2003
года. Предыдущее поколение Lacetti
продавалось на рынках Азии, Европы и
Океании. GM заменил предыдущее поколение
на новый Cruze в течение 2009 года.
Австралийская версия продается под
маркой Holden Cruze со второго квартала 2009
года. Американский Chevrolet Cobalt заменён с
августа 2010 года и по прошествии года
Chevrolet Cruze твёрдо удерживает первое место
на рынке США среди компактных моделей.
В России производство налажено на заводе
GM в Шушарах (Санкт-Петербург). В продажу
на Российском рынке модель запущена
осенью 2009 года, ранее Chevrolet планировала
запустить производство Chevrolet Cruze в России
весной, но финансовый кризис внёс
коррективы в эти планы. По состоянию на
декабрь 2012 года стоимость автомобилей в
зависимости от комплектации составляет
от 599 000 до 817 000 рублей.
2012 Camaro ZL1 As Fast As Porsche or Lamborghini? Afraid So.
All of the naysayers out there that think American cars are junk, think
again. This stock Camaro ZL1 turned times at the
Nordschleife last week that were right there with Porsche, Lamborghini and
Ferrari, all for 60,000 USD. Even Jeremy Clarkson has a Corvette ZR1, after
he laughed at...then drove it.

2012 Camaro ZL1
Features Technically Advanced 6.2L Supercharged V-8
CHICAGO -- The all-new, 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is powered by the LSA
6.2L supercharged V-8 engine that produces an estimated 550 horsepower (410 kW) and 550
lb.-ft. of torque (745 Nm).
The LSA is the most powerful engine ever offered in a Camaro, eclipsing even the
original ZL1 engine from 1969 that inspired the name of the new,
maximum-performance model. Built on GM's legendary small-block V-8
architecture, it features an intercooled Supercharger system, premium heat-resistant
aluminum cylinder heads and other details designed to ensure its
exceptional performance is delivered with smoothness and refinement.
"The LSA is the ultimate engine for the ultimate Camaro," said John Rydzewski,
assistant chief engineer for small-block engines. "It has a broad power
band that matches the Camaro ZL1's performance
capabilities at every notch on the tachometer."
Components and design elements that contribute to the LSA's performance
■Balanced, lightweight reciprocating assembly
■High-strength hypereutectic pistons
■Sixth-generation Eaton Supercharger
with four-lobe rotors
■Center-feed fuel system
■Piston oil squirters.
A Tremec TR6060 six-speed manual transmission is matched with the LSA. It
uses a 240-mm dual-mass flywheel matched with a 240-mm twin-disc clutch
system to provide excellent shift smoothness.
Compared to the Cadillac application, the LSA used in the Camaro features the following
unique components and details:
■Black Intercooler housing
with unique heat exchanger and plumbing to accommodate the Camaro engine compartment
■Cast stainless steel Exhaust
manifolds for enhanced thermal management
■Revised accessory drive with unique alternator and air conditioning
■Idler pulley in place of the conventional power steering pump pulley,
because of the use of electric power steering
■Special engine cover in red.
Supercharged power delivery
The LSA engine's sixth-generation Eaton Supercharger, with high-helix, four-lobe rotors,
enables a broad range of power through the rpm band, giving the engine
great low-end torque and excellent horsepower at higher rpm.
"The design of the Supercharger's
rotating internal components extends its effective range, giving the engine
a wide, flat power band that is usable at all rpm levels," said Rydzewski,
assistant chief engineer. "Whether at low speeds or on the highway, the
feeling of power is instant, strong and sustained."
Heavy-duty and lightweight reciprocating components support the engine's
high-rpm, supercharged performance. The parts are housed in an aluminum
cylinder block that features nodular iron, six-bolt main caps. Cast iron
cylinder liners -- measuring 4.06 inches (103.25 mm) in bore diameter --
are inserted in the aluminum block and they are finish-bored and honed with
a deck plate installed. The deck plate simulates the pressure and minute
dimensional variances applied to the block when the cylinder heads are
installed, ensuring a higher degree of accuracy that promotes maximum
cylinder head sealing, piston ring fit and overall engine performance.
Nestled inside the LSA's deep-skirted cylinder block is a forged steel
crankshaft that delivers a 3.62-inch (92 mm) stroke. It features an
eight-bolt flange -- the outer face of the crankshaft on which the flywheel
is mounted -- that provides enhanced clamping strength. Other
non-supercharged GM 6.2L engines have a six-bolt flange. A torsional damper
mounted to the front of the crankshaft features a keyway and friction
washer, which is designed to support the engine's high loads.
Connected to the crankshaft is a set of lightweight powder-metal connecting
rods and hypereutectic pistons, which, when combined with the cylinder
heads, delivers a 9.1:1 compression ratio. The alloy of the pistons was
selected for its strength and heat resistance properties, while the cast
design provides inherent quieting advantages over other piston materials,
such as forged aluminum.
High-flow cylinder heads based on GM's proven L92 design channel incoming
air into the combustion chambers. They are made with a premium A356T6 alloy
that offers excellent heat resistance, particularly in the bridge area of
the cylinder head, between the intake and Exhaust valves. Additionally, each head is
manufactured with a roto-casting method.
