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.

New 2012 Ferrari California Road Test
The new 2012 Ferrari California gets a power upgrade to 485 HP and loses weight. The Drive Cannel had the opportunity to road test it. All the detractors that coined the rear design of the California the "J Lo Butt" must be blind....what's wrong with her Derriere? We like it. This Ferrari is a wolf in sheep's clothing...if you want to cruise it will. If you want to drift like Tanner Foust, it will. The slight against women, those calling it woman's car, will just have to eat their words....plenty of women can out drive men and this car proves it's worth in power and handling. It's not an entry level Ferrari, there's no such thing.





2012 Cadillac XTS CUE
Cadillac has upped the software game when it comes to creating a central information point for the driver known as the CUE, or the Cadillac User Experience. The 2012 Cadillac XTS, which will replace the STS and DTS, will be seen in its final form at either the LA Auto Show in December or the Detroit Auto Show in January 2012. We hope it doesn't stray far from the Platinum Concept.





New Supra Renderings: If Only They Would Build It
Toyota had a great concept in the original FT-86 but they couldn't leave it alone, it's slowly losing it's appeal, Hopefully the 2014 Supra will look like these new renderings and they won't toy with this one. It's time to show something different than we've seen in the past.





F-Type R Jaguar Steals The L.A. Auto Show
The new Jaguar F-Type R is the British marques newest show stopper. The L.A. Auto Show couldn't get enough of this 550 HP beauty and Jag will sell everyone it makes...even at $100,000.

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 run, 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 before lifting to avoid cresting a small hill at corner entry at 200-plus mph. The car had not reached terminal velocity. Conditions included a head/crosswind, ambient temperatures in the 90s, and a density altitude of 3,280 feet. The Camaro was 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 ยน13 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 HotRod.com.

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 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.

2012 COPO Camaro: GM's Baddest Factory Camaro Ever! - HOT ROD Unlimited Episode 6
It's the baddest factory Camaro ever! The 2012 COPO Camaro is a pure drag racing car built to compete in NHRA Stock Eliminator and Super Stock classes, and in this episode of HOT ROD Unlimited, we go behind the scenes within General Motors to learn about the car, watch some radical burnouts, meet some of the people behind the COPO, see one of the engines on the Dyno, and visit the Performance Build Center where the engines are assembled. At the time of our visit, the only COPO was the very first one, known as the Proof of Concept car, serial number 001. GM was not ready to release engine power numbers, drag times, or vehicle weights, as class details are still being worked out with the National Hot Rod Association. COPO stands for Central Office Production Order, a process that was used in the '60s for fleet managers to order unusual combinations of options. Dealer Fred Gibb figured out how to use the system to get GM to assemble cars that were never intended for production. He ordered 1969 Camaros that used a derivative of GM's 427ci, all-aluminum ZL1 race engine, and bought enough of them to make them legal to compete as production cars in NHRA and AHRA drag racing. There were 69 ZL1 Camaros built in 1969, and Chevrolet is building the same number for 2012. The new COPO is a pure race car, not able to be licensed for the street, and is available with three different engines: a 427 that's naturally aspirated, a 327 with a 2.9L Whipple blower, and a 327 with a 4.0L Whipple blower. Buyers have the option to own all three engines, all stamped with the serial number of their car. The COPO is gutted of all the street equipment, has a rollcage, and the original independent rear suspension has been replaced with a Strange 9-inch rearend with 4.29 gears and a spool. Other aftermarket parts include Strange struts and brakes, and ATI Powerglide transmission, an Aeromotive fuel system, Bogart wheels with COPO engraving, and Hoosier 30x9.00-15 radial slicks and skinny front drag tires.
